Maybe a better title would be Socially Inappropriate Teacher. Or maybe Craven Educator with the Potential to Change. Sure, Cameron Diaz's dumped debutante Elizabeth Halsey wants nothing more than to marry a rich man and live spectacularly off his money. It's what every hot chick with a smokin' bod deserves, right? Of course, the story mandates that her nuptial ruse be uncovered, requiring her to return to the one place she hates more than anything else -- the classroom. Often too drunk and detached to teach and purposefully shunning her needy students, she lets in-class movies like Stand and Deliver and Lean on Me do the heavy educational lifting. How she ever became an instructor in the first place remains a solid mystery.
