CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
Weirdly ill-conceived. Diaz is good and very believable as ... the most dislikable character I've encountered in a film in a long time ... [which] makes for a lousy movie.– Full review
Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia)
Somehow, surprisingly, without things ever turning schmaltzy, we end up caring about this selfish, foul-mouthed teacher, even if it's just a smidgen. And in hindsight, that's a pretty impressive feat.– Full review
Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
While a few of Diaz's scenes with Timberlake and his gift for the deadpan seem as if they're going to amount to something, the script's dialogue fails them.– Full review
Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
Falls down is in its flippant approach to an idea that doesn't have any traction beyond a TV skit, about a morally bankrupt teacher in high heels trying to pay her way to a boob job– Full review
Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
Diaz manages to make Bad Teacher much more enjoyable than its mediocre script deserves– Full review
