A newcomer to a Catholic prep high school falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft and they all soon conjure up various spells and curses against those who even slightly anger them.
In what was meant as a harmless birthday prank, three of Reagan High School's most popular girls, Julie, Marcie, and Courtney pretend to kidnap their friend, the latter shoving a jawbreaker into the victim's mouth to keep her from screaming. Their plan goes awry when the girl accidentally swallows the jawbreaker, choking to death. The cool and calculating Courtney tries to cover the crime but is found out by school geek Fern Mayo. In return for her silence, Courtney transforms the gawky Fern into the stylishly beautiful Vylette, leaving the conscience-stricken Julie out in the cold, threatening to set her up for the girl's murder if she breaks her silence.

The metallic hair bands wrapped around Rose McGowan's head for the prom scene was a result of off-screen competition. Rebecca Gayheart walked out of the hair and makeup trailer with her hair done up with flowers, which awoke the competitive spirit in Rose, who quickly went back into the trailer and demanded that she have a more interesting hairstyle.

The first time I saw this movie was in TV and I liked it so much i recorded it on tape. And watched it again and again and again and again...till the tape was done.....so i bought it on DVD one year later.... At the beginning i thought it's gonna be just "another teen movie"... BUT IT'S NOT!
Jawbreaker is just the most funny,exciting,evil,mean teen-movie ever made. I just love it.
Rose McGowan is just awesome as THE MOST EVIL BITCH EVER Courtney Shane.
This movie has everything you need: -) A REALLY FREAKY STORY -) MUCH OF BLACK HUMOR -) A GREAT CAST -) AWESOME SOUNDTRACK -) REALLY GOOD JOKES
