The Best and Worst Movie Teachers

Sep 05, 2012 Comments
Grady Tripp -- The Wonder Boys

Putting successful novelist turned reluctant teacher Grady Tripp (Michael Douglas) on the “good teachers” list might rub some the wrong way. He smokes pot, he’s having an affair with his boss’ wife, and he’s generally a mess – but he also manages to teach troubled student James Leer (Tobey Maguire) how to not only be a better writer, but a better person as well. We can forgive a lot of flaws when teachers go that extra mile. Plus, we just love Grady Tripp – he’s a great character. (Verdict: Good Teacher)
