Boxoffice Magazine - Unnamed
Bad Teacher is a worthy successor to the benchmark black comedy "Bad Santa" (without being at all the same).

Empire - Chris Hewitt (1)
Broader than Bad Santa and less consistently funny, it's still gleefully rude, crude and often a lot of fun.
60
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
For all her desk-stashed booze and inappropriately tight skirts, the movie offers Diaz a pretty bland badness.
60
Time Out - Joshua Rothkopf
The movie works-to the extent that it does-because of its sharply un-PC script (credited to Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky) that sometimes feels like a Hollywood rewrite of "Election."

Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Probably it's a combination of those and other elements that leads to Diaz's bad teacher not being as bad as she might have been and Bad Teacher not as good as it could have been.
