She doesn't give an "F."
Some teachers just don't give an F. For example, there's Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz, The Green Hornet). She's foul-mouthed, ruthless and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can't wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake, The Social Network)—competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch).
Then, when Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, TV's How I Met Your Mother), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
Critics and audiences alike give it an "A," and so will you. Learning was never so funny, especially in this Unrated Edition!
Rotten: Weirdly ill-conceived. Diaz is good and very believable as ... the most dislikable character I've encountered in a film in a long time ... [which] makes for a lousy movie.-CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia), July 27, 2011
Fresh: Somehow, surprisingly, without things ever turning schmaltzy, we end up caring about this selfish, foul-mouthed teacher, even if it's just a smidgen. And in hindsight, that's a pretty impressive feat.-Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia), July 19, 2011
Rotten: While a few of Diaz's scenes with Timberlake and his gift for the deadpan seem as if they're going to amount to something, the script's dialogue fails them.-Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald, July 19, 2011
Rotten: Falls down is in its flippant approach to an idea that doesn't have any traction beyond a TV skit, about a morally bankrupt teacher in high heels trying to pay her way to a boob job-Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, July 15, 2011
This movie was pretty bad. One of the few movies i actually wished i hadn't bought.
It had some moments, but in general was not very good nor interesting.
Very good and very funny

I was so disappointed! This is probably one of the worst movies that I have bought. Will put it out to sell at a garage sale...though a little embarrassed to even do that it was so bad.
