Bad Teacher is a film that from title to premise is trying to recreate some of the magic that made Billy Bob Thornton's Bad Santa such a treat.
Based on the strength of the first trailer however, Cameron Diaz is no Billy Bob Thornton, and Bad Teacher is no Bad Santa.
Not to say it's all bad though, despite Diaz not ever really feeling comfortable in her role as a pot-smoking, potty mouthed educator, some of the jokes land perfectly thanks to the great supporting cast, notably TF favourite Jason Segal.
Swearing its way through much of the NSFW-dictionary, the Red Band trailer also gives away details of a mostly nonsensical plot involving Justin Timberlake and boob jobs.

File this one under 'wholly unconvinced' for now. We definitely cracked a few chuckles throughout, but remain doubtful that the 'swearing = comedy' premise is enough to carry the film for 90 mins.
Bad Teacher is released in the UK June 24 2011.
