She thinks she’s found her ticket out of teaching, a job she despises, when a new substitute (Justin Timberlake) takes over one of her colleagues’ classes. But in order to flat- ter him she needs to clean up her act. Jason Segel co-stars. Think Bad Santa, but with Cameron Diaz playing Billy Bob Thornton’s role.
