John learns that his widowed mother, Beverly, portrayed by Susan Sarandon, is engaged to be married to none other than Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton), the gym teacher whose sadistic exploits were the bane of John's youth. Abetted by his nerdy old pal, Nedderman, John plots to break–up the relationship. But their well–laid plans go awry.
A forgettable, badly scripted film. I probably chuckled like twice, but overall, it is neither hilarious nor touching.
