I attended the exclusive screening of the movie "Bad Teacher" for the Shoot Some Juice and Write Some Juice contestants. I tagged along my coworker Jen. After work, we headed to Powerplant Mall for the event and since we got there a little too early, we had time to roam around and check out some boutiques. I tried hard to restrain myself from shopping knowing that I am travelling next week anyway so I could shop where I am going. I debated between buying Happy Lemon or Starbucks Coffee Jelly and the latter won. I'll go check out the former some other time (I heard so much nice things about it and the brand has a steady stream of followers now).
Before the movie screening started, the Shoot Some Juice and Write Some Juice contest winners were awarded. Out of the more than 400 hundred entries, 4 online personalities were chosen and each of them won a writing and photography stint in Juice.ph, Php10,000 cash and a new Apple iPad 2. Lucky them!!! I could only wish I was one of the winners. The winners were: Arriane Serafico, Therese Reyes, Kisty Mea, and Brian Carrera Shaw. The criteria for judging were based on Creativity, Originality, Juice Factor (presence of EYP-recommended establishments) and Social Media Reach. I am sure I got a whooping 0% in Juice Factor. On second thoughts, I didn't mention any EYP-recommended establishment in the sample article I submitted (read: banging forehead at the concrete wall). I really wasn't after the iPad, I wanted the writing gig. Anyway, better luck next time I guess.
So, to heal the longing heart (read: graceful loser), I switched gears to just enjoy the movie shown. Good thing that I enjoyed the movie as it was funny in a twisted sexy (read: dirty) way. The sexual innuendos were all over that movie from start to finish (especially the car wash scene, the Justin-dry-humping-Cameron scene and the bar scene).
Cameron Diaz's signature brand of xrazy, sexy, cool was just fitting for Elizabeth Halsey, a confident, cunning, sultry, self-absorbed gold digger who decided to become a teacher for what she deems as the easiest way to get her through everyday (short hours - what could be better than that?) and a good avenue to earn her keep for a much-dreamed of boob job. The movie by the way is rated R for sexual content, nudity, profanity and some drug use.
If you’re the type of person that is easily offended by the idea of a teacher abusing the education system and her students - or the type to get stuck on the question of how a person with few scruples and no morals gets hired as a middle school teacher in the first place, then this film will be impossible for you to enjoy. -ScreenRant
If you would like to chuckle and to let out a little laugh is all you’re after, this movie will deliver what you expect it to, and may even make you giggle. If however, you expect anything more than that, then pass this up and watch another movie.
