Standard loser gets sucess comedy fareBy PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 04 Oct 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Mr Woodock (Billy Bob Thornton) is well cast as the sargeant major gym teacher at high school who puts his pupils through a humilating wringer, one of his class 'Farley' (Sean William Scott) is a particular favourite pupil, due to having a bit of puppy fat present he gets some special attention from Woodock, but lo and behold later in life becomes a slim writer of mentoring and life enhancement books. Before bumping into Woodock again in an excruciatingly awkward way potentially for both of them. Yes, this does sound pretty samey so far, its a never offensive quite funny standard comedy, but nothing more I'm afraid, a sort of sunday afternoon lazy watch rather than a nailed on must see. If you liked Thornton in 'Bad Santa' you might find this o.k., if not it is similar ground and you would be forgiven for giving this a miss.

Worth a Watch...By Stanberry (78 reviews) from Plymouth , 07 Oct 2009... Even if for just a few laughs! Don't get me wrong it was pretty good but not the best comedy I've seen lately...
PAINFULBy ironmanrox (3 reviews) from Dumbarton , 25 Sep 2009Wow this movie is dull. I thought stiffler would be keeping me laughing like crazy but it just didnt wash with his goody two shoes persona, the plot was lame and switched so fast to sub stories like his love relationship with the teacher that was on 4 two secs. This movie is dull and I was very close to turning it off. poor
