With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen

Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) is one of those teachers who, as a teacher, hates to be so (me too!).

She dreams of a life with a lot of money, luxury and fame, of course, maybe not in that order.

More precisely: she dreams of a man who has much money and can offer you luxury and (at the same time, not later) fame.

Soon it is clear the victim, no, the Appointed One: Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake), the same math teacher and his own worth millions thanks to the family dynasty.

Elizabeth hesitates not usually long, but this time it is equally faced with several problems.  Scott is clearly on large breasts (who isn’t?) – they must be so bloated from money for cosmetic surgery, naturally (unnaturally?).

Her colleague Amy Squirrell (Lucy Punch) is fast becoming the toughest competitor – it must be so, because hard stops are pulled out to get her out of the way.  And since then its still annoying students and also the annoying gym teacher (Jason Segel) are around, too – so there will be an exhausting school semester!

What?

In this film you go, but the only reason to laugh and not because you want to see a critical contribution to climate changing or world hunger end (admirable, but bad cinema!)

Cameron Diaz plays exactly the boobed bimbo, which she probably is in real life also worth seeing (shwing!). 

Justin Timberlake proves once again that he does not can only sing, (in this film, he may even not sing – and what is in the box?  Get it?) but act all like The Social Network.

Jason Segel is perfect in the role of the scruffy, pudgy gym teacher and each other no matter how small supporting role was really busy voices.  Especially the interplay of individual personalities rather disturbed at this school is a really surprisingly entertaining cinematic experience that lives primarily by his puns.

So, one and one half high flying thumbs!  Good, not great.

With a popcorn and drink, maybe air conditioning, and this is a summer afternoon.  Of laughs!
