Grade: C- Rating: R, 1 hour 31 minutes In a Nutshell: #TeacherFight This filthy movie features about 947,633 moments of profanity, bullying, drug-use, porn, and inappropriate behavior by high school teens AND adults. Uplifting theme: “It takes courage to grow up and to become who you really are.” e.e.cummings “Words are always going to matter.” – English teacher “Actions have consequences.” – Ron Strickland (Ice Cube) As I always tell my 4 sons, “Be. A. Man.” If you don't stand up for yourself, who will? Things I liked: Andy Campbell is the perfect wuss. Jillian Bell is hilarious, but inappropriate 99% of the time. Christina Hendrick smolders, as always. Occasionally funny pranks. I was Senior class president of my high school and planned an awesome Senior Prank. I sent home letters to all the parents of seniors, explaining that the students would have a particular day off school for some legitimate-sounding reason, forging the principal's signature. Things I didn’t like: There has to be premise for the fight, but Ron Strickland (Ice Cube) throws a temper tantrum in a classroom, destroys school property, and then picks a fight with another teacher. Tracy Morgan always plays the same character in everything. I walked past him in an airport once and said, "Hey!" He answered back, "Hey yourself." I hate the expression “Snitches have stitches.” I’ve heard students say that before. It encourages the lack of consequences. I hated the talent show where little elementary school student Ally (Alexa Nisenson) drops a million F-bombs. NOT adorable. I chuckled a few times, but it’s mostly not funny. Ice Cube was good, but he pretty much plays the same character in everything he does too: tough, scary guy matched up with a weasely light-weight who plays the comic relief. Funny lines: “No meth period.” – Andy “When I’m on my period, don’t do it? That’s when I need it the most.” – Holly “Holly, this has got to stop!” – Andy “Cuz it’s a gateway?” – Holly “It’s the finish line!” – Andy “The guy’s a virtuoso.” – janitor “That doesn’t seem so scary.” – Andy “You didn’t see his eyes.” – janitor “Where do I get drugs?” – Andy “You’re in a public high school in the United States of America. There couldn’t be a better place to get drugs.” – Holly “Whoever dies first haunts the school!” – Holly Tips for parents: This is a true Rated R movie that is not family-friendly viewing. Tons and tons of profanity. Tons of inappropriate images of porn, underage sex talk, and masturbation. It makes American high school look like it’s filled with complete drug & porn addicted delinquents.
