Editors Note
Note John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) is a high school basketball star dating three different girls at the same time: the activist vegan (Sophia Bush), the over-achieving blonde journalist (Arielle Kebbel), and the sassy cheerleading squad captain (Ashanti). They all find out about each other and with the help of the shy new girl in school, Kate (Brittany Snow), they plot a devious revenge. After various other plots fail (such as spiking his protein powder with estrogen), the girls decide to combine their knowledge to make Kate into the perfect seduction machine and break Tucker's heart. In classic DANGEROUS LIAISONS/CRUEL INTENTIONS style, Kate becomes the talk of the school, but may end up becoming everything she used to hate. It's an amalgam of patented teen comedy formulas, but director Betty Thomas (BRING IT ON, 28 DAYS) keeps the story jumping along in fine order: no pop song montages of trying on different outfits, no soap opera angst and no parental moralizing. It's all chocolate, bra-cams, basketball games, food fights, and a wealth of quotable put-downs. The cast are lovely to look at, and Metcalfe makes a perfect Tucker, a character who--to the movie's credit--is not as bad as all that. Penn Bagdley quietly steals some scenes as John's less popular brother, a music snob/slacker who falls for Kate while assisting her in science experiments. MTV alum Jenny McCarthy is in fine form as Kate's hot mom, cursed with her own weakness for smooth talking men.

ReviewSource Variety
Review Less bloodthirsty than its title would suggest, the feisty teen revenge comedy "John Tucker Must Die" follows the "Heathers" and "Mean Girls" mold of teaming an impressionable heroine with a trio of imperious high school babes; this time, however, they're united in their mission to eradicate not mean girls, but a boy who's broken one heart too many...Metcalfe, last seen as Eva Longoria's botanical boy-toy on "Desperate Housewives," could hardly be more ideally cast as a smooth operator who, even at his most caddish, is almost too charming to loathe.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review The film is given a boost by Brittany Snow ("American Dreams'' and "Nip/Tuck'') in the lead role of Kate, the new girl at the school where John rules. Snow plays her with the spunk of Jennifer Aniston. You're compelled to listen to Kate's woeful story of being raised by a sexy single mom (former Playmate Jenny McCarthy, who can do sexy in her sleep) who has a trail of men in and out of her life...Metcalfe is kind of stiff -- whatever charisma he has on the small screen doesn't translate. But R&B singer Ashanti, cast as an avenger, is a natural on the big screen.

Quotes
Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun What it does have is the laughs.
Connie Ogle, Miami Herald A briskly-paced, refreshing kick in this season of draggy, two-hour-plus movies.
Kyle Smith, New York Post A slumber-party classic that belongs on the same shelf as "Bring It On" and "10 Things I Hate About You."
