    There is nothing funny about the situation in Teaching Mrs. Tingle.
  2. An ugly, failed attempt to pull off a "Heathers"-style, teen-oriented black comedy.

    Mostly a screenful of nothingness.
  4. Williamson deals mostly in cliches, as if high schoolers weren't smart enough to appreciate anything subtler.
  5. 30
    Yet another black comedy that misunderstands and misrepresents the genre.

    A pat, hollow exercises with few tricks (or treats) up its sleeve.
  9. 25
    A spectacularly mediocre movie.
  10. Williamson's script, which he also directed, is spiteful and shallow.
  11. An infuriatingly indulgent piffle of adolescent wish-fulfillment.
  12. 25
    A mean-hearted, ham-handed and gratuitous effort to exploit it's teenage audience's conviction that, underneath it all, their teachers really. do hate them.
  13. 20
    The story is painfully slow.
  14. Lazily written and hopelessly miscast.
  15. One of the worst movies released this year.
