Saw this last night. Not good. It didn't know if it wanted to be a horror film or a horror comedy. No suspense and very little gore.

I give 2 big toe thumbs out of 5.

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

So let me get this straight. Is Megan Fox really going to be nude in certain parts of this movie? If that's the case, once it comes out to DVD, I'll buy any version of it.

That 4:25 sketch got more laughs from me and made me respect Megan Fox more than the whole movie of Jennifer's Body did. She needs to do some more absurdist humor.

There were some stills of outtakes floating around of her in the swimming scene. She had on flesh colored panties and pasties over her nipples. They were actually pretty good but I'm sure nothing shows in the movie. They were like a wet t-shirt

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

Saw it tonight and enjoyed it, Megan Fox of course was sexy as hell. It wasnt really scary except for when Megan Fox returns to her friends house for the first time after the fire. that part was very well done.

I didnt think the dialouge here was over the top like it was in Juno. If you didnt know i was written by Diablo Cody, I dont think anyone would notice any of the quips.

good movie though 7/10

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

it's a bad, bad movie.

5/10

it fails to be an occult movie, fails to be a vampire movie, fails to impress. Megan Fox fails.

Has he ever been in any movies? Y'know, like all those pro-footballers-turned-great actors...Jim Brown, Joe Namath, O.J. Simpson...?

Of course it fails at being a vampire movie, it had nothing to do with vampires. That's like saying District 9 fails at being a zombie film.

Though I do agree Jennifer's Body was shit.

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

The new EW has one of Cody's columns and in it she actually addresses the failure of Jennifer's Body. Apparently she felt so bad about it doing badly she was ready to "slash" femural artery. But she came to terms with her failure and then when Toni Colette won an Emmy for United States of Tara, she felt good again. Take this FWIW.

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

Okay, I'm probably in the minority, but I saw it today and really enjoyed it. It's getting too much shit, if you look deeper it's almost a postmodern satire on peoples' reactions to tragedy and their grief. I just read Dave Cullen's Columbine, about the massacre and its fallout and a lot of stuff such as exploitation and overblowing the tragedy was discussed, for example the "benefit song" in this, so I saw those elements in this and give Diablo Cody a lot of credit for it. As a film it almost felt like a cross between Heathers and Angel Heart, the latter being exemplified by having
Spoiler:
weird sacrifices and a sex scene where blood drips down from a ceiling
. Some of the dialogue and FX doesn't work, but overall I liked it a lot more than I expected.

That was pretty funny, dry humor... Megan Fox is a good sport to have actually played along with that. I can't believe they actually managed to talk about Hotel for Dogs for that long.

Yup that's why. I'd rather see a vampire movie than this half-meant monster.

I saw it on Thursday and I enjoyed it too. It's not a masterpiece but I found it to be a decent way to spend 90 minutes.

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

I watched this and A Perfect Getaway tonight. The only good that came from this film is that it made A Perfect Getaway look like a masterpiece. The most unnecessary (and best) scene in the film (think lesbian) couldn't even save the film for me. I didn't go into it expecting some great film, but neither did I think it would be this bad. The story (if you can call it that) was a jumbled fucking mess, the acting was horrible, and the dialogue/humor was just annoying. I need to watch something soon to get this bad taste out of my mouth.

Yes, this film was abysmal. None of Cody's "hip" dialogue worked at all. In fact, every delivered line fell flat on it's face. I saw this film a few weeks ago (bootleg DVD). I saw "A Perfect Getaway" today though. Great twist in the film. In better hands (screenwriter and director), it could have been great. As is, it's barely worth a rental.

What a fucking mess of a follow-up to an Original Screenplay Oscar win... I didn't feel she deserved it for "Juno" in that year, in any case. Bird for Ratatouille, or even Gilroy for Michael Clayton were more deserving.

ditto. what a terrible movie and what a terrible actress in Fox.

i think Cody was trying to rip-off Whedon's 'Buffy-speak' more than anything else and it was just painful, especially coming from the unnatural Fox.

I didn't hate this movie as much as everyone else here. It may have been because I was going into this with extremely low expectations. There were definitely worse this year.

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

Watched it last night...and then proceeded to immediately go to movie stop to trade it in. What a fucking piece of garbage. Good thing Megan Fox is smoking hott, because I'm sure anything other actress with this many shit piles on their resume would be out of work by now. At least it was a equal trade in value for the blu of "It Might Get Loud." Now that was a something pretty fun to watch to wash away the stench of Diablo's hammy and hackneyed attempt at horror.
