I was talking about in general. Actually...even when I was younger I never was attracted to Anderson...too too...big.

that would make around 9-13 for mid 90s. Yeah...never really cared for her.

Looks fun but the director seems to have struck entirely the wrong tone for it.

Seems way too serious for the material.

Part of it seems like it wants to be Heathers, but the tone is standard issue horror. Hopefully that isn't the case.

Consider me surprised, but that trailer didn't look quite as horrendous as I expected. Now, that doesn't mean I necessarily want to see the film but the dialogue at least appeared to be slightly more restrained than in Juno.

I thought Juno's dialog was pretty well restrained after the first 10 minutes or so.

The opening sequence in the convenience store and her on the phone to her best friend were painful, after that, nothing really stood out as particularly bad.

Edit: She looks like Mila Kunis on that poster. Not a bad thing, but no less.

Hopefully its just the trailer... but probably not. I hope this ends up as campy fun horror and not a failed (big fail) at a serious horror flick

I think it's supposed to camp horror. I don't think it's serious at all. Trailer doesn't show it off like that anyway.

I'm more excited about Amanda Seyfried to be honest, but that's a really good shot of Megan Fox on that poster. She doesn't look as "angrily aloof" as she usually does.

Re: Jennifer's Body - New Diablo Cody written movie

As someone who also wasn't a fan of Juno this one looks somewhat interesting. I'll echo many of the posters here and say I'm not too keen on her dialog, which to me reads like a blog or "hip" internet speak. I can see how it may have been fresh for those who don't spend much time on the internet, but a lot of that kitsch indie speak was kind of generic and forced. It works better in gossip blogs and live journal, but the voice just didn't seem that original to me.

The tone it seems to be striking is (hopefully) Slither-like. Which had a good deal of comedy mixed with a few gross out scenes and then a few truly disturbing and frightening ones.

"She's evil...and not just high school evil." What an awful tagline.

Wrong. It's straight from the movie. Which was written by Diablo Cody. Who won an Oscar.

Oh, right. In fact, isn't this whole movie "from the mind of Diablo Cody"?

awesome.

If this promo is any indicator of the how the film doesn't take itself seriously and just has fun, then this will be a cool flick.

Looks fun

Oh no. You should have heard the groans in the theater when this trailer played before District 9.
