Culver City, CA (8/15/11) – Move to the head of the comedy class with this year’s hilarious hit comedy, BAD TEACHER, coming to Blu-ray, Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download in an Unrated Cut this October 18 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day, Charlie’s Angels), Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, The Social Network) and Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man) star in this irreverently funny tale of a teacher with her own unique ideas about educating America’s youth.  Featuring hilarious supporting turns from Lucy Punch (Dinner for Schmucks), Phyllis Smith (“The Office”), John Michael Higgins (The Ugly Truth), Thomas Lennon (“Reno 911!”) and Molly Shannon (TV’s “SNL”), BAD TEACHER is the laugh-out-loud comedy that’s bad in all the right ways! BAD TEACHER will be priced to own at $35.99 SRP (BD), $30.99 SRP (DVD) and $45.99 (Combo Pack).

The Unrated Blu-ray, Combo Pack and DVD all include both the Unrated and Theatrical Film Versions. The Unrated Version of the film includes over six minutes of raunchy footage not seen in theaters.

The Unrated Blu-ray and DVD also include hours of grade “A” bonus material, including Deleted Scenes, Outtakes and featurettes “Way Behind the Scenes with Jason and Justin” and “Raising More Than Funds.”  Exclusively available on the Blu-ray Disc are a Gag Reel, JAMS Yearbook-Hidden Moments Interactive yearbook featuring outtakes with the cast, three additional behind-the-scenes featurettes, plus movieIQ.

Elizabeth Halsey (Diaz) is ruthless, wildly inappropriate and says exactly what's on her mind.  She may be working as a teacher, but her real occupation is to find a rich man to support her and get her out of the middle school for good.  When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Punch), while disregarding the advances of the school's irreverent gym teacher (Segel).  Elizabeth’s schemes and their wild consequences prove that she truly doesn't give an "F."

BAD TEACHER was directed by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, “Californication”) and written by Gene Stupnitsky & Lee Eisenberg (upcoming Ghostbusters 3, “The Office”). It was produced by Jimmy Miller (The Other Guys, Step Brothers) and David Householter (The Other Guys, Step Brothers). Executive producers are Georgia Kacandes (Syriana, Blow), Jake Kasdan, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.  BAD TEACHER was released by Columbia Pictures.
