The last thing Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) wants to do is work for a living but when she is dumped by her rich boyfriend she has to return to the career she thought she'd left behind, teaching.
She gets by doing the bare minimum and showing little interest in her students but when she hears that there is a cash bonus for the teacher of the class with the highest marks in the state test she sees it as an opportunity to fund the breast enlargement that she thinks will help her snag another rich guy.
Diaz is charming and sexy as the scheming Halsey and good support comes from Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel and Lucy Punch as fellow teachers.
There are enough laughs to make this decent easy viewing that's perhaps more suited to home than cinema but it remains a reasonably enjoyable experience.
