(Amanda Segfried, Megan Fox, et al / DVD / R / 2009 / 20th Century Fox)
Overview: Sexy temptress Megan Fox is hotter than hell as Jennifer, a gorgeous, seductive cheerleader who takes evil to a whole new level after she’s possessed by a sinister demon. Steamy action and gore galore ensue as the male student body succumbs to Jennifer's insatiable appetite for human flesh. Now it’s up to her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) to stop Jennifer's reign of terror before it's too late!
DVD: 'Jennifer's Body' is a killer movie. It has it all, the screams, the comedy ... and I loved it when the gothic kid gets killed! I don't know why so many people dislike this movie, I'm guessing because they are so used to the PG-13 horror movies and remakes.
The film opens with Jennifer and her lifetime friend at a bar looking for the music band they are obsessed with. Jennifer leaves with the group, she is no where to be found. Her friend gets awaken in the middle of the night by someone inside her house ... it's Jennifer, but something is not right, she looks like complete trash. The next day in class, she is back hotter than ever and has a craving for young boys every other night!
In truth, well, sure, I feel like 'Jennifer's Body' was a bit rushed. There were elements, however, that still has my friends and I quoting it weeks after we've seen it. I'm a nineteen year old girl from the suburbs. Diablo Cody writes movies that resonates with people like me. The concept of the movie is, in my opinion, genius. A girl is sacrificed to the devil by a rock band in hopes that they can become famous. And may I say that Adam Brody pulled that role off splendidly.
Only problem? Jennifer lied about being a virgin and now she's possessed by a demon, so whats a girl to do? Eat the living to stay alive, of course! The movie is funny.
That is pretty much the entirety of 'Jennifer's Body'. It has moments of brilliance. Some parts are just too funny, too smart, too clever that it makes up for where it lacks. The beginning of the movie, parts of the climax, how it sloppily comes to an end. But ... would I tell you to see it? Hell yes. If you take it at face value, it's a great movie to watch on a Saturday night with a bunch of friends and goof off!
