Lower Learning is surprisingly funny at times... it feels like one big improv skit (And the deleted scenes seem to attest to that theory, as 35+ jokes are thrown out there, and only the best 5 are used), and for this movie, it mostly works. The cast is tremendous, I didn't expect to see so many familiar faces, and most are well-known for their roles in movies like this. The stand out for me, in a field of all of these other comic actors is Monica Potter. She is relatively unknown to me, other than a few movies she has been in, and she manages to deliver some of the funniest lines as a down on her luck teacher who is going through a bad marriage. Much of the comedy of Lower Learning is based on kids "saying the darndest things", but not all of it. The plot of the story is basically Jason Biggs vs. Rob Corddry in a fight to save a struggling school. Also surprising is some of the stuff Longoria gets to do. She has a running gag as a troubled woman who inhales paint fumes, Cool whip can fumes, chews tobacco, drinks whiskey, abuses pain pills and more. When confronted about her issues, she becomes defensive and asks: "What is this Nuremberg?", "What is this Salem"? She actually had some funny lines here, I'll give her credit for that.
