Sophia Coppola is just jealous.
How can you not love Cameron Diaz, fer chissakes?
Great comedy with a nihilistic edge but a warm heart. A former teacher must have written it. It got a lot of bad reviews, and Cameron does look old in it, but that's part of the charm.
This is sort of like COACH with Kathy Lee Crosby, which I saw from my folks' backyard at the Starlight Drive-Inn Theater back in Grand Forks, North Dakota, circa 1978, because it was the Big Bad !'R'!--but this is wiser and funnier in a darker, wiser way.
How can you go wrong with an aging teacher trying to be the best she can be so she can afford a new set of hooters?
