Story


Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, and Susan Sarandon star in the outrageous comedy "Mr. Woodcock". Scott stars as John Farley, a self-help author who returns to his hometown only to discover that his mother (Sarandon) has fallen in love with his old high school nemesis, Mr. Woodcock (Thornton) - the gruff, no-nonsense gym teacher who had put him through years of mental and physical humiliation. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, John sets out to stop his mother from marrying the man who had made life miserable for him and his classmates.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it seems to have been made to be adequately funny, and no more..”
by David Mercier [Film Judge]
“..a one-joke movie where the joke is constantly flubbed by Craig Gillespie's pedestrian direction..”
by Jim Hemphill [Reel.com]
“..staggers to a thoroughly unconvincing, wishy-washy feel-good conclusion..”
by Harper Barnes [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
