Not bad.

on 4/22/2012

After hearing all the bad buzz this movie was getting I went into it not expecting much but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I Thought it was a campy and fun horror flick and man is Megan Fox hot. I really liked Amanda Seyfried as the geeky friend who must save the day. Definitely worth seeing and maybe even buying like I did. Read More

Not a very good movie, just OK

on 5/4/2012

This movie is just ok at its best. The acting from the actor were forgetful. The cinematography wasn't that good. The story was creepy. I did not really enjoy this movie. I guess you don't expect a lot from a low budget horror movie. The girls were hot though. Read More

Editors Note
Note With a script from JUNO scribe Diablo Cody, JENNIFER'S BODY smashes together horror and high-school comedy. Megan Fox (TRANSFORMERS) stars as Jennifer, a student whose lithe body hides a flesh-hungry demon. She begins targeting male students, while her friend (Amanda Seyfried, MAMMA MIA!) looks on in terror. Jason Reitman (also of JUNO fame) produces this film that stars Adam Brody, J.K. Simmons, and Amy Sedaris.
Reviews
Hollywood Reporter "[Horror fans] will get a kick out of this absurd yarn of a high-school hottie-turned-psycho cannibal....And there is enough of those arch, self-conscious comic lines to remind us this is a Cody screenplay." 09/10/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "There is within Diablo Cody the soul of an artist, and her screenplay brings to this material a certain edge, a kind of gleeful relish, that's uncompromising." 09/17/2009
New York Times "[With] a sensibility that mixes playful pop-culture ingenuity with a healthy shot of feminist anger." 09/18/2009
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- ?It?s the smarts in the script by JUNO?s Diablo Cody that sneak up on you....Fox shows a comic flair that TRANSFORMERS never investigated.? 10/01/2009
Washington Post ?There?s a certain kooky, kinky fun to be had with JENNIFER?S BODY, a fem-rage take on campy horror comedy.? 09/18/2009
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith a script by JUNO scribe Diablo Cody that's loaded with gimmicky teen-speak and one-liners....A superior slice of snarky, entertaining escapism." 10/30/2009

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Just what we were waiting for, Twilight for boys, with Megan Fox in the Robert Pattinson role, except that I recall Pattinson was shirtless. Diablo Cody's next screenplay after Juno is a 180-degree reversal, with the heroine now transformed into a fiend who eats the flesh of teenage boys. Can you imagine Juno's poor boyfriend, Michael Cera, with steak sauce?...Jennifer's Body opens on a deceptively light note in high school, introducing Jennifer Check (Fox) and Needy Lesnicky (Amanda Seyfried) as lifelong best friends. Jennifer is the hottest and most popular babe in school, and Needy is -- well, needy. Surely that's her nickname? What parents would name a child Needy?...Megan Fox is an interesting case. We think of her as a star, but this is actually her first leading role. She didn't get to No. 18 on Maxim's Hot 100 list of 2007 for acting. (The top post went to Lindsay Lohan. How quickly times change.) Fox is also famous for her many tattoos, but in researching that aspect of her image, I made an encouraging discovery. Anyone can have a tattoo of a butterfly. Been there, done that. But Megan Fox has a tattoo that quotes "King Lear": "We will laugh at gilded butterflies." How cool is that? Plus, so far, there are no tiresome rumors about booze and drugs...Fox did her career a lot of good with the two Transformer movies, but this is her first chance to really perform, and you know what? She comes through. She has your obligatory projectile vomiting scene and somehow survives it, she plays the role straight, and she looks great in a blood-drenched dress with her hair all straggly. Amanda Seyfried makes a plucky heroine...The film is directed by Karyn Kusama, who in the splendid Girlfight (2000), introduced Michelle Rodriguez. She handles this material efficiently and with a certain relish. It's not art, it's not Juno, it's not Girlfight, for that matter, but as a movie about a flesh-eating cheerleader, it's better than it has to be.
