As a chubby 7th grader, John Farley (Seann William Scott) and his friends were helpless against the most evil man on the planet - their P.E. teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton). Flash forward years later -John, now successful, thin and able to do a pull up, returns to his hometown only to discover that Woodcock is still in his life... and dating his mom (Susan Sarandon)! John vows to do whatever it takes to stop their relationship, but Woodcock has plans of his own - and they don't include losing.
The good bits are in the trailers!!
- Mr. Woodcock review by CP Customer
Not as funny as it looked on the trailer. Although I cracked a few smiles – I didn’t really laugh out loud. If you like your American comedies, I wouldn’t say this comes up to the mark of “American Pie” films or “White Chicks”. Seann William Scott and Billy Bob Thornton are great comedy actors – but I just didn’t think the story worked too well for them in this case. It just seemed like a film that could’ve been wrapped up in half an hour rather than dragging it out.
In fact I probably wouldn’t ever watch this film again. It’s one of those where the only funny bits are in the trailer!
