To anybody who wanted to be that high school jock that dated the school “hottie” or the plain Jane who wanted to be that “hottie,” you need to experience ‘Jennifer’s Body.’ This way, you can live that high school dream and see first-hand the “hottie” and her drop-dead body, literally.
‘Jennifer’s Body’ is the second screenplay from Diablo Cody following her Oscar-winning debut smash ‘Juno.’ The movie was full of clever dialogue and gratuitous pop-culture references.
The movie is a mash-up of a teen horror flick and a comedy at that. It’s as if ‘Juno’ and ‘An American Werewolf in London’ had a baby and named her Jennifer.
Its horror aspect was overridden by the amusing aspect from were it was based to how she turned in to a demon, Jennifer was a modernday comedian.
It’s scary and suspenseful, but when characters are talking about stuff like toxic female friendships, awkward adolescent sex and high-school dances, the audience will break out in a laughing frenzy.
The movie never got boring and had people thinking they would know what would come next, seeing how the plot seemed to be such a cliché, but you never knew what witty things the characters will say next.
In a small town like Devil’s Kettle, the queen bees like jennifer (Megan Fox) dream of fleeing the small town life. A chance of a lifetime seems to pop up.
A small inner-city band, named Low Shoulder, comes to Jenns little Canadian hick town to give them a good show. Little does Jenn know, this was going to be a really hot show.
Nerdy needy (Amanda Seyfried) can immediately tell that this band her childhood friend Jenn is so in love with is up to no good. After the band literally leaves the club burning up, the unsuspecting Jenn gets into the band’s van. As Needy watches her bestie leave, she knows in her gut that that would be the last time she would honestly see her sand box buddy leave her.
When Jenn finally does get back covered in blood, Needy finds herself torn as to what she should do; but as a crazy night does to most teens, the next day at school, Jenn swears up and down that nothing happened that night and she feels better then ever.
While the town is tragically mourning the lost of several of their local high school kids, Jenn struts around as radiant and as beautiful as ever. Boys come up missing right and left. Needy notices how her bestie’s God complex is taking a toll on the town. She must do something. Unwillingly, Needy finds herself becoming the heroine who finds her unexpected inner-strength.
The most lovingly innocent bystander, Chip (Johnny simmons), is caught in between this jumbled mess, but like the bad guy turned hero in the story he does his part and provieds the film with some substance.
Of course, the much-hyped make-out session between Needy and Jennifer comes out of nowhere, deserving all the wide-eyed stares the screen got.
One of the most memorable parts of the movie, setting off major smiles all over the theater and to whoever is to watch it next.
