The Syllabus States That ‘Bad Teacher’ Is Due This October

Bad Teacher turned out to be a decent-sized hit during this summer, which featured many R-rated comedies.  I thought it was fun enough (review HERE), but now people will have their chance to own it for themselves, as Bad Teacher comes to Blu-ray on October 18th.  As you may recall, the film stars Cameron Diaz as a foul-mouthed teacher who is more focused on landing the rich husband of her dreams, opposed to actually teaching her students anything.  The film costars Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel, along with a number of funny supporting actors as well.  The Blu-ray actually includes both theatrical and unrated versions of the film, so be prepared to enjoy additional footage of this raunchy comedy this October.  Read on to see all the details about this release.

Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day, Charlie’s Angels), Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, The Social Network) and Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man) star in this irreverently funny tale of a teacher with her own unique ideas about educating America’s youth.  Featuring hilarious supporting turns from Lucy Punch (Dinner for Schmucks), Phyllis Smith (“The Office”), John Michael Higgins (The Ugly Truth), Thomas Lennon (“Reno 911!”) and Molly Shannon (TV’s “SNL”), BAD TEACHER is the laugh-out-loud comedy that’s bad in all the right ways!

Elizabeth Halsey (Diaz) is ruthless, wildly inappropriate and says exactly what’s on her mind.  She may be working as a teacher, but her real occupation is to find a rich man to support her and get her out of the middle school for good.  When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Punch), while disregarding the advances of the school’s irreverent gym teacher (Segel).  Elizabeth’s schemes and their wild consequences prove that she truly doesn’t give an “F.”

BAD TEACHER was directed by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, “Californication”) and written by Gene Stupnitsky & Lee Eisenberg (upcoming Ghostbusters 3, “The Office”). It was produced by Jimmy Miller (The Other Guys, Step Brothers) and David Householter (The Other Guys, Step Brothers). Executive producers are Georgia Kacandes (Syriana, Blow), Jake Kasdan, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.  BAD TEACHER was released by Columbia Pictures.
