really have to give all the credit to Ms. Cameron Diaz. For her to be
playing a crass, bitter, lazy and cruel middle school teacher whose
shallow aim for teaching was to get herself a breast implant and snag a
rich man to marry, Cameron still manages to make the character
absolutely funny, delightful and actually worth rooting for. I really do
not know how she does it, but she manages to do so. She has that
certain unique indescribable quality that could make such an unpleasant
character appear cute.
may be so much older now from her debut in "The Mask" with Jim Carrey,
but she still slinked in that car wash scene like the best of them. Her
long legs and lithe body still serve her very well in this scene as if
she were just half her present age. She really worked those daisy dukes!
I thought her comic timing was on point in most of her scenes. This
girl is really very funny! I cannot imagine any other actress who can
run with this Elizabeth Halsey character and make her likable.
raunchy and naughty, this certainly is not a movie to watch with your
parents. Cameron and her ex-lover Justin Timberlake figure in a most
unusual and awkward sex scene. Scenes with cuss words, drug use, and
hurting children are in liberal supply here. I generally would not like a
movie with scenes like this, but thanks to Cameron Diaz and her
inexplicable x-factor charm, I found it really funny and generally had a
good time watching it.
