Description

Triple bill of US high school comedy features.

In 'Bad Teacher' (2011) tough-talking rebel Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) returns reluctantly to her former job as a middle school teacher after being dumped by her sugar daddy. In the staff room she soon sets her sights on a hot new substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake), who also just happens to be the heir to a fortune. There is just one small obstacle standing in Elizabeth's way: his butter-wouldn't-melt girlfriend, Amy (Lucy Punch).

'Easy A' (2010) stars Emma Stone as Olive Penderghast, a perfect high school student whose reputation is put on the line when she tells a white lie to her gay best friend, Brandon (Dan Byrd), about losing her virginity. However, when competitive fellow student Marianne (Amanda Bynes) tries to twist the rumours about Olive to further her own ambitions, Olive determines to make the best of a bad situation and surprise Marianne by using the rumours to her advantage.

'Superbad' (2007) follows two socially inept teenage boys who experience severe separation anxiety about finishing high school and going to different colleges. Evan (Michael Cera) is sweet, smart, and generally terrified. Seth (Jonah Hill) is foul-mouthed, volatile, and all-consumed with the topic of human sexuality. All the two really have is each other. Before leaving for the college, the pair make a pact to lose their virginity. The film portrays their misguided attempts to reverse a lifelong losing streak with the opposite sex in one panic-driven night.

Synopsis
A booze-swilling, pot-smoking, hard-swearing seventh-grade teacher rallies to get out of the classroom for good by wrangling a rich substitute teacher into marriage in this comedy from director Jake Kasdan (WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY). Cynical teacher Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz) hates her job. She can't wait for the day she finds a man who makes enough cash to let her walk away from her life of middle-school misery, and when her fiancé cancels their wedding plans, her frantic search intensifies. Just when it starts to look like Elizabeth will have to muscle her way through another semester of skull-crushing hangovers, however, handsome substitute Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake) shows up at school sporting a fancy wristwatch and the promise of a care-free future. But in order to earn her meal ticket, Elizabeth will have to out-cute perky fellow teacher Amy (Lucy Punch). And it won't be easy, because Scott is crushing on Amy hard. Now, if Elizabeth can just motivate her students to study so that she can win a state contest to earn enough cash for some new breast implants, perhaps she can finally find a means of diverting Scott's gaze. Meanwhile, much to Elizabeth's chagrin, wisecracking, self-effacing gym teacher Russell (Jason Segel) refuses to admit defeat despite being turned down for a date by his gold-digging colleague time and again.

4 stars out of 5 -- "Filthy and unredeeming in all of the right ways, BAD TEACHER is a worthy successor to the benchmark black comedy BAD SANTA....Cameron Diaz reclaims her star-wattage as the sassy, scheming title character..."
(18 Jun 2011, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Justin Timberlake is amusingly ingenuous....The picture's most entertainingly unhinged element, though, is Lucy Punch..."
Hollywood Reporter Staff (17 Jun 2011, )
Movieline
"Kasdan is extremely clear about the movie's satirical stripes, and he and Diaz are completely in tune....Diaz's great gift is that she's up for anything..."

"Cameron Diaz taps into her inner thug. It's a beautiful thing."
Manohla Dargis (24 Jun 2011, )

"[Diaz's] performance is pleasingly scathing....BAD TEACHER, like its subject, doesn't try too hard and, in the end, is more likeable for it."

Synopsis
Nathaniel Hawthorne's THE SCARLET LETTER is re-imagined as a contemporary high school comedy in this tale of a scheming student who plots to give her popularity a boost by painting herself the easiest lay in school. Like most high school kids, Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) just wants to be popular. So much so than when her best friend, Rhiannon (Aly Michalka), asks Olive how her weekend went, the bored teen decides to whip up a spicy white lie just to make things interesting. But that minor exaggeration begins to take on a life of its own when it reaches the ears of motor-mouth gossip Jesus freak Marianne (Amanda Bynes), and in no time the entire student body is abuzz over unassuming Olive's unrepentant weekend of debauchery. Of course not a word of it is true, but that doesn't stop everyone in school from talking, and an amused Olive from deciding to go with the flow. Playing the role of the hussy to the hilt, the girl who used to be invisible begins dressing provocatively and turning heads in the hallways. The students aren't the only ones taking notice, either; Olive's English teacher, Mr. Griffith (Thomas Haden Church), is concerned that the kind of attention she's receiving isn't healthy for a developing girl, and his wife (Lisa Kudrow), the school guidance counselor, is in full agreement. The only people who seem remotely interested in the truth are Olive's trusting and open-minded parents (Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson). As Olive takes note of the parallels between her own situation and the plight of the SCARLET LETTER heroine Hester Prynne, she realizes that she may be able to manipulate her newfound notoriety to give fellow classmate Brandon's (Dan Byrd) popularity a much-needed shot in the arm. Olive never thought her little game could possibly have any negative effect on anyone but herself, but when loose lips start sinking ships all around her, she realizes that it's high time for the truth to come out.

Keith Phipps (16 Sep 2010, )
Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "Overflowing with charm and wit, this satirical take on that special hell known as high school has plenty of appeal to teens and adults alike."
Pam Grady (16 Sep 2010, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie works because its funny, yes, but also because it's smart."
Roger Ebert (15 Sep 2010, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Arguably the best teen comedy since CLUELESS, it's easy to give to this one an A."
Chris Hewitt (22 Oct 2010, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci, as Olive's goofily empathic parents, are a tasty comedy team..." -- Grade: B-
Owen Gleiberman (17 Sep 2010, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[A] high school romp that turns a stale genre upside down with sly wit and sharp satire."
Kirk Honeycutt (10 Sep 2010, )
Los Angeles Times
"EASY A proves inventive in its plotting....Thomas Hayden Church brings a weary soulfulness to the role of Olive's favorite teacher..."
Sheri Linden (17 Sep 2010, )
New York Times
"[T]he sassy high school comedy EASY A commands attention for the irresistible presence of Emma Stone....Her performance is the best of its type since Alicia Silverstone's star turn several high school generations ago in Amy Heckerling's 1995 hit, CLUELESS."
Stephen Holden (16 Sep 2010, )
Rolling Stone
"[A] teen comedy loaded with killer laughs..."

Total Film Staff (11 Oct 2010, )
USA Today
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "One of the reasons it fires on all cylinders is its sassy titian-haired star, Emma Stone. Stone is easily one of the most winning actresses of her generation and a natural comedian."
Claudia Puig (17 Sep 2010, )
Wall Street Journal
"[I]t catapults Emma Stone into a higher place reserved for American actors who can handle elevated language with casually dazzling aplomb."
(17 Sep 2010, )
Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "Enhanced by a wicked sense of humor, Will Gluck's movie does what Hughes did best, showcasing characters with personality who make you wish you had them on speed dial."

Synopsis
Produced by Judd Apatow and co-written by Seth Rogen--both of 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN and KNOCKED UP fame--SUPERBAD is the story of two horny teenage geeks looking to lose their virginity before college. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are hoping to end high school on a high note, and when one of their crushes (Emma Hill) invites them to a graduation party, the boys are ecstatic. That is, until they become responsible for supplying the party with alcohol. They hurriedly concoct a scheme to use their friend Fogell's (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) horrendously fake ID, but trouble soon arises when Fogell becomes the victim of a liquor store robbery. The cops (Rogen and Bill Hader) show up, and the evening quickly disintegrates into a hilarious mess of misunderstandings, crackhead sing-alongs, and beer mixed with laundry detergent.

Hill is a riot as the wild-haired and foul-mouthed Seth, and Mintz-Plasse is great fun as the uber-geek Fogell. But Michael Cera (formerly of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) steals the show as the sensitive and levelheaded Evan. His oddball line delivery and excellent comic timing make for some of the most bizarre but best moments of the film. The sexual humor can be pretty graphic at times, which is no doubt what earned the movie its R rating. Yet, despite gross-out jokes involving menstrual blood and penis drawings, SUPERBAD somehow manages to fly far above frat-boy, AMERICAN PIE-style humor. This is partly due to the comedic skill of the actors, but also because the characters--silly and absurd though they can be--are so well-written. Watching these bungling outcasts is a vivid reminder of the horrific lows and supreme highs of high school life, and their antics rather poignantly capture how age 18 can indeed be super bad, but also super good.

"It's funny, but there's something meaningful going on....[The film] has at its core a certain verisimilitude that is endearing -- even sweet."
Tim Cogshell (1 Sep 2007, p.112)
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Think of this best as a younger sibling to KNOCKED UP....The characters are just as well-drawn and the situations as oddly relatable."
Olly Richards (1 Oct 2007, p.46)
Entertainment Weekly
"Apatow directs with an adult understanding of and affection for teen hormonal rhythms....SUPERBAD is cute if you like guys who aren't even remotely bad..." -- Grade: B
Lisa Schwarzbaum (31 Aug 2007, p.110)
Los Angeles Times
"Wide-eyed and sincere as it is hilariously, unrepentantly profane, the movie aims to express what it's like to stare down the barrel of your first foray into adulthood, and it's not afraid to be honest about it."
Carina Chocano (17 Aug 2007, )
New York Times
"[S]weetly absurd....[The] setups and camerawork serve the characters unobtrusively, as do the homey production design and costumes."
Manohla Dargis (17 Aug 2007, p.E1-E15)
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "SUPERBAD is superfun across the board....It helps that the fun doesn't stop. It helps even more that the pitch-perfect script doesn't step out of character for a joke."
Peter Travers (23 Aug 2007, p.76)
Sight and Sound
"[A] raucous party movie....The picture is dominated by three plucky young actors."
Ryan Gilbey (1 Nov 2007, p.78)
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] rapid-fire gag machine....SUPERBAD is a relentless rib-assault that sure-footedly blends gross-outs, flashbacks, fantasy asides and a full quiver of zingers."
Matthew Leyland (1 Oct 2007, p.54)
Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] very crass but perfectly judged comedy with a heart of gold, and the leading triumvirate of Cera, Hill and Mintz-Plasse are absolutely priceless."
David Richardson (1 Apr 2008, 69)
Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "Think AMERICAN GRAFFITI meets AMERICAN PIE at the crossroads where John Hughes meets John Landis....It's embarrassingly funny..."
Tom Charity (1 Oct 2007, p.128)
USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A]bsurdly comic. Gross-out humor abounds....Side-splitting laughter, along with some powerful cringing, are likely to be audiences' dominant reactions."
