thank fuck, I thought she'd never leave

Bad Teacher (2011)
Chosen by me as I like going to the cinema a lot.

An intermittently amusing black comedy for most of it's run it unfortunately doesn't have a strong enough spine to pull off it's ending when the 'Bad' Teacher is rewarded the (only) decent person in the film and the good teacher punished. If it were funnier the unlikeable characters and unwieldy plot wouldn't matter as much but despite some comedy ringers (John Michael Higgins - always a welcome sight) it never really lifts off neither being mean enough nor offering a strong redemptive angle.
Timberlake demonstrates some fine comedy chops once again.
