Jennifer's Body - DVD Review


Starring Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons, Adam Brody, JK Simmons, Kyle Gallner, Amy Sedaris and Chris Pratt.
Directed by Karyn Kusama.

I've seen worse, and I've seen better. Diablo Cody's twitter-friendly dialogue doesn't come off as fresh this time around. In fact there were ten or twelve lines that yanked me out because its self-conscious cleverness couldn't be disguised by the delivery. There's also a big acting disparity. Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) is really good as the nerdy girl Needy. Megan Fox is, well, Megan Fox as Jennifer.
