Two More Preview Clips and an International Trailer for Bad Teacher
06.06.11 by Ryan
Columbia Pictures' Bad Teacher appeared, on the surface, to have what it takes to compete against the other R-rated comedies of the summer when the red band trailer debuted in February. Featuring Cameron Diaz as a foul-mouthed, self-absorbed middle school teacher who could care less about her job until the arrival of a substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake) sparks her interest, the movie looked like a legitimately funny comedy. The two preview clips that were released last week were more in the mildly amusing category — though the clip of Diaz spraying herself during a car wash will certainly peak the interest of some viewers.
The latest two preview clips that Columbia has released won't require you to look over shoulder while you're at work, but don't quite reach the comedic heights of the previously released red band trailer. Of course, don't take our word for it, judge for yourself.
In the first clip, Jason Segel, who plays the school's gym teacher, debates with a student if LeBron James is a better basketball player than Michael Jordan.
In the second clip, Diaz encounters her rival teacher (Lucy Punch), who discusses Diaz's sordid past relationship.
To get a more extensive view of the movie, a new international trailer shows parts of the red band trailer and combines them with sections of the preview clips.
Bad Teacher was directed by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard) and written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupintsky (The Office, Ghostbusters III). Phyllis Smith and John Michael Higgins co-star.
