Swanner: Megan Fox stars as a high school girl who gets in the wrong van after a concert and shows up later covered in blood with a change of attitude. Has she been altered or is she possessed? These are the questions running through your mind as you watch the new movie Jennifer’s Body
Judd: Those were not the questions running through my mind. The only question running through my mind was how the fuck did Diablo Cody win an Oscar if this is her follow up effort? Or as Ms Cody would say, “Like, Doubleyou Tee Eff. How did this dried up pole jockey acquire the golden man? So Vanity Unfair.”
Swanner: I’ll admit that the movie looks good. The production design definitely says scary movie but the story is goofy at best. I know Megan Fox is 23 but some of these high schoolers look like they’ve been going to the Grease school of adults playing teenagers. The real adults in the movie look ancient so to not make these “kids” look too old…it didn’t work. The script was the problem for me but more from a “this is really stupid” plot line and not because of the trendy dialog
Judd: I was wondering if you noticed the geriatric teenagers. The only one that looks like he could pass for an actual teen is Johnny Simmons – and he looks absolutely baby-faced compared to Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfreid who look like they ought to be wing slingers at the local Hooters.
Swanner: Did you think it was scary at all? I thought it had a few scares but I wasn’t really sure if I was watching a horror film or a black comedy. Maybe that was suppose to be it’s charm. I know you hated the dialog but I like the trendy crap.
Judd: Scary? No, the movie was not scary. It’s being advertised as a horror comedy, and it’s neither. Twice they made subtle reference to Evil Dead, and I was insulted. And as far as her witastic dialogue, I’m so totally whatevs about it. Cody is the Bush Admin Wall Street, she gets too much credit. I mean, her dialogue is like a one legged dog – totally lame. Her only tal’ is recycling Janine Garafalo and Heathers quotes.
Swanner: At least Megan Fox was sexy and the “kiss” was pretty good if you like that kind of thing.
Judd: I don’t.
Swanner: Me either
Swanner: * ½
Judd: no stars
