The Best and Worst Movie Teachers

Elizabeth Halsey -- Bad Teacher

Cameron Diaz’s Elizabeth Halsey is a real piece of work – she smokes weed, pops pills and never teaches (until it can help her with one of her many schemes) and she even goes so far as trying to manipulate grades on standardized tests. This is clearly not the woman we want molding the minds of our most precious resource. No one expects a teacher to be a paragon of virtue (they’re human just like the rest of us), but Diaz’s character lives up to the title of the film in every way – and maybe even goes above and beyond in a few instances. (Verdict: Bad Teacher... ya know, like the title)
