Cameron Diaz made her name in comedies like There's Something About Mary and The Mask, so it would seem natural for the now-38-year-old actress to return to her familiar stomping grounds with Bad Teacher. The passing years have done little to dim Diaz's outsized personality (a welcome trait for this genre) and it helps that she doesn't look like she's aged a day over the past decade. However, it's another black comedy, the similarly titled Bad Santa, with which Bad Teacher shares its comedic DNA. Unfortunately, that connection predominantly involves irreverent, irredeemable and unlikable protagonists we're asked to cheer for against all sense of logic and decency—in Diaz's case, a substance-abusing, negligent teacher. With Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake.
