School dances are awkward – even when it’s Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake getting their groove on!

In their new film, Bad Teacher, Diaz plays a “usually hungover” 7th grade teacher “fixated on trying to afford breast augmentation surgery,” director Jake Kasdan tells Entertainment Weekly. Her pursuit of Timberlake’s substitute teacher character is solely because he – the heir to a watch-making company – “seems like a good target.”

The comedy, due in 2011, started shooting just nine days ago, and according to Kasdan, his costars (and former flames) “obviously know each other really well … They have a shared sense of humor,” he says. “It’s easy for them to be funny together. You know where the jokes are.”

Can’t wait to laugh with them!
