"Lower Learning" On Anchor Bay DVD 12/2/08

Jason Biggs (American Pie), Eva Longoria Parker (“Desperate Housewives”) and Rob Corddry (“The Daily Show”) star in a Hilariously Classless Classroom Comedy

Burbank, CA – What do you get when you combine failing test scores, tipsy teachers, and a principal on payola? Lower Learning, the irreverent comedy from Anchor Bay Entertainment, reports to DVD on December 2, 2008. Available for $26.97 SRP and starring Jason Biggs (American Pie), Eva Longoria Parker (“Desperate Housewives”), Rob Corddry (“The Winner” “The Daily Show”), Monica Potter (“Boston Legal”) and Will Sasso (“MADtv,” “Less Than Perfect”), Lower Learning is a twisted take on the profession of teaching and the pitfalls of public education.

Welcome to Geraldine Ferraro Elementary, where the teachers are drunk, lazy or psychotic, every child has been left behind, and burned-out Vice Principal Tom Willoman (Biggs) is barely holding on. But when sexy district inspector Rebecca Seabrook (Longoria Parker) arrives to shut down the school, she and Tom hatch a plan to take back the classrooms from an insanely corrupt Principal (Corddry). What tragedy in Willoman’s past has turned him into a complete wuss? When are Nyquil shots and cattle prods considered proper teaching tools? How much damage can be inflicted by a bunch of pissed-off 2nd graders? Lower Learning answers all these questions and more.

The Lower Learning DVD is also full of some too cool for school extras including “The ABC’s of Lower Learning” – a behind-the-scenes featurette, theatrical trailer, deleted scenes, and outrageous outtakes with titles like, “Two Sets of Genitals,” “Wet, Smelly Love,” “Nasty Face,” and “Whacked Out.”
