A lazy, incompetent middle school teacher who hates her job, her students, and her co-workers is forced to return to teaching to make enough money for breast implants after her wealthy fiancé dumps her.
After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he's been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S.O.B.
Dave is a married man with three kids and a loving wife, and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain, lightning strikes and they switch bodies.
When her wealthy fiancé breaks it off, gold digger Elizabeth Halsey returns to middle school: she's an awful teacher but wants to save for breast-implant surgery. She brightens when Scott, a new teacher, turns out to be rich, and she stops showing films and sleeping in class when told there's a bonus for the teacher whose class scores highest on the state exam. Her competition for Scott and the bonus is cheery and tightly wound Amy. Amy digs for dirt on Elizabeth who cheats her way toward Scott's bed and the money. Honesty with students seems to be her only skill. She ignores Russell, a droll gym teacher, who looks on. Will she succeed with Scott and get those new breasts?Written by

When Elizabeth's roommate rips the mirror off Halabi's Taurus, he throws it and it slides under the Volvo wagon across the lot. Later the mirror is seen in the middle of the lane, no where near where it was thrown earlier. See more »
This is a black comedy about our upside-down world in education. As it should, it is not always intended to be funny. Also, the main character is not intended to be a nice person. I find the work of the writers very original; in fact, too original, in the sense that this upside-down world, where villains are heroes may be too bold for today's audiences.
It is actually tragic how education is being managed by our civilization, these days. The movie manages to walk the fine line between comedy and the "not so funny" stuff with elegance. And it manages to show (and never tell), in ninety minutes, all that's wrong with education. I won't add spoilers. so go and see it for yourselves!
