Mr Woodcock (2007)

John Farley (played by Seann William Scott), a successful young author of a best–selling self–help book about letting go of the past, violates his own advice when he returns to his hometown to receive the community's highest honour.

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.

Rating: 1/5.
