Diaz's character is a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague, played by Timberlake. The publication claims to have got hold of the movie's script, which features a scene where the pair start kissing and "dry humping".But it apparently all comes to a premature end when Timberlake's character gets "too excited".There are a lot of those films now, where audiences are willing to laugh at those things. We want to make some money and make things that work.
If we are trying to be role models, in any way, we should at least offer up a jean jam.
Justin, you get to sing in the film, but it is the most ridiculous song. TIMBERLAKE: “Simpatico,” the original composition from Scott Delacorte, is a special song.
Completely the wrong person to help guide students, Elizabeth’s schemes get more and more outrageous, shocking everyone around her. You can’t find a millionaire, like you could three or four years ago, before the crash. She thinks that, to get what you want, you have to invest in your business, and hers is bigger tits. He would say how wonderful it was to teach your son and pass on your knowledge to him, and that you want to encourage your kids and teach them life lessons.
During a press conference to promote the film’s release, co-stars Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, who has proven himself to be a very talented comic actor, talked about centering a film around a character who is horribly ruthless and yet still somehow likeable, their own experiences in public school, filming the hilarious dry-humping scene, and the importance of chemistry in a comedy ensemble. You usually spend the last 20 minutes of the movie, apologizing for what the character did in the first hour and a half. In life, we don’t just have an epiphany and change our life. Your character is pretty ruthless, in her effort to have breast implants. DIAZ: Obviously, if I thought I could get somewhere by having bigger boobies, I would have done it by now. I’m not judging her, but if we really believed this was the right thing to do, we wouldn’t be making fun of it, right? We all know what it’s like to come up against people who have different priorities. It was great to go to work every day with a team who was on the same wagon, going towards complete and utter distaste, and throwing everything out the window. As he sat with his feet kicked up on the desk, he talked about how his son was starting to walk and how gratifying it was to see him take the four steps up the stairs to the porch, to get to the front door. Everyone else was horrified, but I was like, “That’s awesome! Was there any worry about having a sexy teacher as the main character, given the news about teachers having affairs with students? The dry-humping scene is hysterical and perhaps the only one captured so effectively on screen. TIMBERLAKE: Well, I do think we have the only dry-humping scene captured on film. I’ve got to say, there’s nothing wrong with a good jean jam.
Check out what they had to say after the jump: Question: Cameron, in the film, your character does and says some horrible things, but you still like her. CAMERON DIAZ: That was the great thing about this movie. I went 30 pages into the script and thought, “There’s no way I’m playing this character! ” And then, 10 pages later, I was like, “I think I like her! I don’t have to apologize.” There’s no apologizing. As he got to the very top last step, he would pull on the string that he tied around his son’s leg, to bring him back down to the first step. DIAZ: The one thing that Elizabeth Halsey doesn’t do is take on a seventh grader. Cameron and I felt that we had a responsibility to young people, who are going to buy tickets to DIAZ: It was absurd!
There was not one ounce of energy spent trying to make anything about this character likeable. That’s pretty much the only message in the movie that we are proud of. We thought we shouldn’t just be making a movie about nothing that is of any importance.
, Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) is a teacher who just doesn’t care about anyone but herself.
She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless and wildly inappropriate, in her pursuit of the fake boobs that she’s convinced will make her more enticing in winning over a rich, handsome man.
I think people are willing to take a chance, and studios are now willing to formulate new things. There have always been genius female actors in comedy. They pull back the arrow, take a breath to slow down the heartbeat, and then let go, and bullseye. Growing up with that show, I remember staying up late, which was really bad parenting because I was too young to watch some of the jokes that were on it, but I turned out okay.
