I think we all understand that Bad Santa was at best a minor influence upon the making of Bad Teacher (Sony, 6.24). I think it happened mainly due to innumerable reports of sexual indiscretion on the part of God-knows-how-many-TILFS-and-MILFs in high schools over the past few years. Fate dealt me a bad hand, I feel, by not arranging for one of these women to teach one of my seventh, eighth or ninth-grade classes, and that’s probably the main reason why I want to see this Cameron Diaz comedy.
