Plot Summary: Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, and Susan Sarandon star in the outrageous comedy "Mr. Woodcock." Scott stars as John Farley, a self-help author who returns to his hometown only to discover that his mother (Sarandon) has fallen in love with his old high school nemesis, Mr. Woodcock (Thornton) – the gruff, no-nonsense gym teacher who had put him through years of mental and physical humiliation. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, John sets out to stop his mother from marrying the man who had made life miserable for him and his classmates. More here

The best gags feel like leftovers
Robert Wilonsky
Village Voice

Bad Santa gets worse every time he trots out the same mean routine; does anyone at this late date recall a movie starring Billy Bob Thornton in which he doesn’t yell at retarded fucking kids and bark at their stupid parents?

Good comedy moments... but... the paper-thin concept gets bogged down by a New-Agey message and a too-pat finale.
Staci Layne Wilson
Buzzine Magazine

Mr. Woodcock gets away with a lot—from its ball-baring poster, to its title, to everything in between—for a PG-13 movie. In fact, in a lot of ways, it feels like a classic, old-school, '80s, raunchy, rated-R teen comedy. Only it's not about teens. And there's really no sex.

Grade: C-
Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

Made in the vein of Meet the Parents, this high-concept comedy concerns youths eternal anxiety of going back to school and take revenge on the teachers and coaches who tortured them but humor is so lame and helming so inept that amiable cast can't help.
