ou know, maybe it's just me, but when I hear the term black comedy, I expect the movie to be very dark, but in a manner that allows it to be funny. I'm sorry to say that this is not the case with Teaching Mrs. Tingle.
The story is that three students are caught cheating by this minipulative bitch of a teacher named Mrs. Tingle. It seems that her mission in life is to make sure that Katie Holmes'(Dawson's Creek, Go) character fail and not become valedictorian. Well it turns out that Katie wasn't really cheating, but the Mrs. Tingle won't believe her. Yadda, yadda, yadda...Katie and her two friends hold her hostage. But, while holding her hostage Tingle tries to turn them against each other by playing mind games with them. The meat of this movie is Tingle playing with their fragile little minds, and doesn't go much beyond that.
The humorous moments in this movie are few and far between. The only really memorable one is when Jo Lynn, played by Marissa Coughlan, does her impression of Regan from The Exorcist. However, there is one good reason to go see this movie: Katie Holmes in a wet bra. Yes, all you men who have drooled over her can see her in her skivies in this movie. Though, that's as far as it goes. Sorry.
So for a good way to waste two hours of your life or to fulfill a pornographic fantasy you have about Dawson's Creek, rent a copy of Teaching Mrs. Tingle, and be prepared to count ceiling tiles, because you'll definitely be doing the cello head bob on the couch with this stinker.
