Storyline

Nerdy, reserved bookworm Needy Lesnicki, and arrogant, conceited cheerleader Jennifer Check are best friends, though they share little in common. They share even less in common when Jennifer mysteriously gains an appetite for human blood after a disastrous fire at a local bar. As Needy's male classmates are steadily killed in gruesome attacks, the young girl must uncover the truth behind her friend's transformation and find a way to stop the bloodthirsty rampage before it reaches her own boyfriend Chip. Written by The Massie Twins

Trivia

Jennifer's surname 'Check' was initially intended only to be a place holder name. It comes from writer Diablo Cody using the phrase 'check' to express the filling of the various required roles, e.g "Jennifer - check, Needy - check" and so on. The name was never changed and features in the final film. See more »

Goofs

In the Melody Lane bar, Jennifer returns with a tray of the two "9-11" drinks. She says, "Tower 1 isn't full enough." The camera cuts away and when it cuts back "Tower 1" is more full (blue layer). The camera cuts away again, and when cutting back, "Tower 1" is back to it's previous lower level. See more »

Quotes

Needy's Mom: [to Needy] I dreamed some bad people were trying to nail you to a tree with hammers and big stakes and shit. Just like J.C. But I didn't let 'em get to you, 'cause I'm a hard-assed, Ford-tough mama bear.

Jennifers Body An Okay Comedy Thriller
12 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jennifer's Body is an okay comedy horror from writer Diablo Cody most famous for Juno starring Ellen Page and Michael Cera. This movie isn't the disaster I thought it might be but it wasn't the greatest. Director Karyn Kusama does an all right job of making this film but some flaws with character development to name one weighs it down. I for one thought Megan Fox from Transformers was decent as the character of the title whose possessed by a demon. She looked normal for a change and not some glamor model who just stepped out of a magazine or something. Her co-star Amanda Seyfried is the stand out giving a very convincing and believable performance as Jennifer's best friend Needy. Her character goes through a major transformation during the course of the movie and she makes the film worth watching at least to me. Seyfried also had nice chemistry with Fox which made their friendship on screen believable. The rest of the cast of relative unknowns are good but not of them are fully developed except for maybe Johnny Simmons as Needy's boyfriend Chip. Kyle Gallner, J.K. Simmons, and Adam Brody show up for small roles who are effective in their limited screen time. The violence which involves Jennifer eating some boy are well executed and there's some humor. But the lack of character development and the dialogue at times is what weighed it down the most. Overall Jennifer's Body wasn't the best movie I've seen but it wasn't the worst either. It's a decent comedy thriller which I'm sure will please almost any die hard fan of the genre.
