A Decent Comedy Overshadowed by the Drama
Told in a semi-documentary fashion, this film centers around an English teacher by the name of “Mitch Carter” (Matt Letscher) who has been nominated for national recognition as “Teacher of the Year.” Needless to say, this high honor has its advantages and disadvantages with some of the people at his high school seeking to share the spotlight with him while others feel somewhat envious. Most notably, the principal, “Ronald Douche” (Keegan-Michael Key) belongs to the first category whereas the instructor specializing in robotics by the name of “Steven Queeg” (Jamie Kaler) definitely belongs in the second group. To that effect, Mitch soon finds that he has a difficult decision to make due to the fact that, while he feels a certain sense of accomplishment in his current profession, the honor also comes with an opportunity to make much more money as a national spokesman for certain causes for which he has no real regard. Now rather than reveal any more, I will just say that this was an okay comedy for the most part which had some good scenes here and there with those involving the college counselors, “Lowell Hammer” (Jason Sklar) and his brother “Clive Hammer” (Randy Sklar) probably being the funniest in my opinion. I also thought that Keegan-Michael Key performed quite well too. On the other hand, I thought the drama involving one teacher named “Chris Conner” (Brian Campbell) was a bit too deep and cast a shadow over the comedy which wasn’t all that appealing. Be that as it may, this film still managed to pass the time fairly well and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
What the hell is this!? Weird drama-comedy hybrid. Not good.
OK, so what is this? This movie is part comedy, part drama. Horribly mixed together. Awfully inconsistent, the drama is cringe worthy, and very little of the comedy is actually funny.
I think I get what they are going for with the comedy, but it does not really work. They are trying that: “awkward, dorky, boring people taking things really seriously, not understanding that everyone thinks they are losers”-type humor. Ann there are a lot of scenes like that, but then, right the next moment things are supposed to be touching, and heart felt.
The scenes with Keegan-Michael Key are the most funny. He succeeds at what he’s trying to do. Also the strange twin brothers, are almost good. But the rest are forgettable.
Matt Letcher, which is sort of the main character, is doing most of the drama, and it does not work. You can see that he is trying to act in a realistic manner, and it is just embarrassing on his behalf. I think the director is to blame, though.
Teacher of the year is supposed to be a quirky, heart warming comedy- drama, (at least I think it is) but fails at both. There’s some good talent here, but it does not work.
