Bad Teacher

(R) ★☆☆☆☆

Usually, you can’t judge a movie by its name. Not so with Bad Teacher, a lazy black comedy that finds gross negligence to be the height of hilarity. Cameron Diaz stars as a junior high teacher who cares more about raising money for a boob job than showing up to work sober, while Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel star as fellow faculty members who inexplicably find her misanthropy irresistible.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins

The 1930s children’s book gets a sleek upgrade courtesy of Mean Girls director Mark Waters and star Jim Carrey, who manages to keep his rubbery face muzzled for most of this perfectly pleasant and predictable adaptation. Kids will love repeated scenes involving penguin poop, but parents won’t need a hip flask to get through the proceedings—the mark of a good family film if we ever saw one.
