What’s it about? 

A bimbo starts teaching at a new school and takes out her frustrations on the kids and other teachers.

Who will enjoy it? 

Readers who like sexy, anything-goes movies. This racy teacher may be every schoolboy’s dream but she creates a minefield of frustration for the other teachers.

You may find yourself laughing out loud only to whisper “sis!” in shock the next moment.

The movie is unashamedly below-the-belt and reckless – it turns the school-flick genre on its head then tickles its tummy too.

Behind the film’s sensual success is Cameron ­Diaz. Her itsy-bitsy outfits will have many guys wanting to watch this more than once. And her scene with a virginal (!) Justin Timberlake is loaded with irony and repressed sexuality.

Director Jake Kasdan explores the wilder elements of this controversial comedy in entertaining and hilarious ways.

He clearly enjoys the antics of this naughty girl who doesn’t seem to give a damn what other people think of her while teaching her learners that school is about more than just mathematical formulas.

It’s teasing, devil-may-care bubblegum for the brain. And the eye candy is to die for. If you’re in the mood for a sexy movie this is it.
