No offense to Adam Sandler fans who loved this film, I love goofy movies myself. But this film fell a bit short of my expectations. First of all, the romantic attraction between Billy and the teacher should have been further developed upon (the scene of her punching Billy in the pool is most curious). Sandler should have added more jokes (he practically played one), and he should have added more dialogue. The movie could have been better, I think.
I love Adam Sandler films, my favorites being HAPPY GILMORE, LITTLE NICKY and THE WATERBOY. But this film is not his best, unfortunately. However, unlike the critics who trashed it, I will do this movie some credit. The scenes of Sandler singing in the pool and yelling at the students that he hates them and will never return to school (after making a spelling error), are hilarious. There ARE funny moments, but the real ones are sadly far and few (much like Will Ferrell movies). A decent film, but not Sandler's best.
