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.
