Review: Jennifer's Body (2009)

Jennifer's Body
IMDB rate: 5,1
Genre: Supernatural, Comedic

Friday I watched Jennifer's Body again, the last time I saw it, I wasn't really impressed with the movie. Well, neither was I this time. I must say I am a fan of Megan Fox as a person, because she seems to be down to earth and stuff, and of course she is very beautiful, but unfortunately, her acting performance is not that good. I did like the idea of humor and horror when I first heard of this movie, and of course, Megan Fox as the main character, never wrong to watch right? Well, the humor wasn't that good unfortunately, plus the script was very very bad. And there seemed to be no connection at all between the main characters Jennifer (Megan Fox) and Needy (Amanda Seyfried). They're suppose to be best friends and stuff, with a bit of jealousy maybe, but the two were just like two blank canvases to each other.

I have to say, Megan Fox' performance was better than in Transformers or How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, but still, too poor. Luckily she's pretty enough huh ;). I did like Amanda Seyfried's performance, because I mostly know her from movies like Mean Girls or Mamma Mia, and this was like something completely different from that, a bit more edgy or something.

There was a bit of gore in the movie, which was fun to watch. And the movie really tries to make a point it seems, the whole High School period, friends growing out of each other, impress boys and stuff, but half way through it seems to get lost in being an 'alternative' movie, so the story goes another way.

The movie isn't that bad to watch, it's just an entertaining movie that you just can't take serious. Or better said: please don't start watching this as a serious, good horror movie, because it simply isn't. The last thing I have to say that a big plus for this movie is the music. Really good!

My personal rate: 5,5/10

    I want to bugger Megan Fox (as the bird was in 2004 when the bird was 18, not as the bird is now obviously).
