This is a Fun movie.
It's got some great Lines from out of teenage Mouths.
Megan Fox is charming. The kind-of Girl You would like to have
eat Your guts out ~~"Whoops!" ~~Spoiler Alert ! Oh, Hell...
It's a Good Movie for a Late Night Horror festival.
The ending is a fun twist , for me.
The band gets what's coming to Them ! (again, spoiler ! )
Amanda Seyfried really does make the Movie Worth watching.
Not just 'cause She sexy.
She has all the best lines & fills the Roles for those
with all the bad lines. She's worth watching.
Sorry, Megan ; But, you're just ...Brief..."Eye Candy".
Maybe: "Transformers Four" ? Good Luck with that.(5/4/2012, San Francisco)

I dont know why I like this movie. The first time i saw it, I sat there thinking.."well that was stupid".. but then I found myself watching it again, and then it came on a movie channel and i watched it again. Its weird, and it is kind of dumb, but I like it for some reason. This review is useless, i know.

This film didn't do too well at the Box Office. The largest problem it had was the script. Badly written cliched filled garbage. Diablo Cody (writer of this film & Juno) is a pretensious hack with

Much better than I was expecting.
A good blend of horror and humour.
Even Megan Fox didn't suck (well, I
guess she did, since she's playing
a vampire........). Amanda Seyfried
steals the show, playing Jennifer's
Definitely worth a watch, if you haven't
already seen it.

"What was it about Jennifer's Body that made it seem like it would be so worthless upon first glance? Was it due to the fact that it at its heart is a teen horror flick, or the fact that it was written by Diablo Cody, whose darling Juno I just didn't care for (I know, I know, blasphemy). Regardless of the reason, upon viewing Jennifer's Body, I can honestly say that it is a surprisingly good, funny, and even enjoyable flick that lampoons its high school setting as much as it celebrates it. Transformers beauty Megan Fox stars as the title character, who is the hottest girl in high school, and ends up falling prey to a devil-worshipping band (led by Adam Brody) who use her as a sacrifice. However, Jennifer ends up coming back to life as a demonic boy-devourer, and it's soon up to her unlikely BFF Needy (Amanda Seyfried) to save the day, and put an end to Jennifer's spree. While the film is a play on the sapphic relationships between teen females, there is enough hearty helpings of humor and gore for horror fans to eat up. Combine that with Diablo Cody's Juno-esque dialogue and surprisingly good turns by Fox and Seyfried, and Jennifer's Body ends up being surprisingly enjoyable. Give it a chance, you'll be pleasently surprised."
Blu-ray: As an overall Blu-ray release, "Jennifer's Body",

"In 2009, the dark comedy horror film "Jennifer's Body" would mark the return of award winning writer Diablo Cody ("Juno", "United States of Tara") and would feature a collaboration with director Karyn Kusama ("Aeon Flux", "Girlfight"), actresses Megan Fox ("Transformers" films, "Hope and Faith") and Amanda Seyfried ("Mamma Mia!", "Veronica Mars", "Mean Girls").
"Jennifer's Body" which cost around $22 million to make, earned around $33 million worldwide and has received mix ratings from a variety of critics but earning praise from Roger Ebert and Peter Travers of "Rolling Stone Magazine".
Now "Jennifer's Body: Unrated" is released on Blu-ray with a special unrated version which includes both the original theatrical version of the film and also an unrated version. The Blu-ray release also includes a digital copy of the film.
VIDEO & AUDIO:
"Jennifer's Body" is presented in 1080p High Definition (Widescreen 1:85:1) with AVC @ 26MBPS. Picture quality is pretty solid as you can see the detail in various surfaces around town. A lot of scenes featuring blood, dirt and grime on the characters which is quite detailed onscreen. There is a fine layer of grain, skin tones are natural and blacks are nice and deep.
The lossless audio is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD MA and Spanish, French and Portuguese in Dolby Digital 5.1. The audio is dialogue and music driven, so most of the audio is coming from the front and center channels. There are some scenes that utilize the surround channels, from the slight sounds of a police siren, crowd ambiance and some of the action sequences. Some of the bass you hear from the film comes from the music but for the most part, the film is front and center channel driven.
Subtitles are featured in English SDH, Spanish, Portuguese, Cantonese, Mandarin and Thai.
"Jennifer's Body: Unrated" comes with the following special features:
* Audio Commentary with Director Karyn Kusama and Writer Diablo Cody (Theatrical Version) - An enjoyable commentary featuring director Kusama and writer Diablo Cody discussing the unique script and the structure of the film.
* Audio Commentary with Director Karyn Kusama (Extended Version) - While watching the film, a red box will show up on the corner (indicating an extended scene) in which you can hear Karyn discussing the differences of the theatrical version from the extended version of the film and how the extended version of the film which is much more closer to the original script.
* Deleted Scenes - (13:55) Six Deleted scenes which include the following deleted scenes: Dead Boys, Jennifer Check Is Gross, Needy Confronts Jennifer, Who's Cindy Crawford?, Needy Faces The Band, Ass, Gas or Grass...
* Gag Reel- (4:55) Bloopers from "Jennifer's Body".
* Jennifer's Body: The Dead Pool - (13:59) The cast and crew (including writer Diablo Cody, directory Karyn Kusama and the producers) talk about the concept of the film and working with the main talent of the film. And filming of the pool scene and the visual effects and make up effects involved.
* Video Diaries - Video diaries from behind-the-scenes on the set of "Jennifer's Body" featuring Megan Fox and Johnny Simmons (12:49), Amanda Seyfried (10:23), Diablo Cody (7:05) and Dan Dubiecki (3:02).
* Megan Fox Is HOT - (:53) A short special feature showcasing the sexy scenes of Megan Fox from the film.
* Megan Fox "Peer Pressure" PSA - (:37) A naughty public service announcement for "Peer Pressure" (ala promotion for "Jennifer's Body").
* Fox Movie Channel Presents `Life After Film School' With Writer Diablo Cody - (26:26) An interesting episode of "Life After Film School" with the three film students interview writer Diablo Cody about the film, her career, working with director Karyn Kusama, Megan Fox and more. Definitely love listening to Diablo Cody discuss her perspective of life and writing.
I suppose that there are horror fans who felt cheated that "Jennifer's Body" was less of a horror, teenage slasher film (despite it having horror elements) and was more of a film that was character driven and really focused on the relationships between Needy and Jennifer.
"Jennifer's Body" is quite interesting because Diablo Cody is pretty good of writing films, her way, her style and it's a carefree style of showing school popularity and the cruelness that happens amongst students. And what better way to take on the role of Jennifer than Megan Fox who has wanted to play this type of role.
But "Jennifer's Body" for the most part is not a great film nor is it the worst film ever made. I suppose it all comes down to the viewer and what they were expecting. Looking for a slasher/gory type of film, well "Jennifer's Body" has scenes that look quite disgusting but for the most part, it's not a scary film. In a way, "Jennifer's Body" plays more like a "Lost Boys" style of film with the music, dark groups of students in town where bad things happening. Also, the film manages to incorporate dark humor to the violence, teenage life and relationships.
But everything comes full circle at the end of the film and I really dig how "Jennifer's Body" ends so rock n' roll but with tragedy. A possible sequel in the future? Who knows.
Megan Fox did a fine job, this may not be the role that utilizes her in a non-sex kitten serious role but for Amanda Seyfried, she really shined in "Jennifer's Body" portraying a variety of emotions from anger, fear, sadness, you name it. It was really good to see her play the character of Needy since her previous films tend to showcase her in a more ditsy type of role. So, it was good to see her utilized in the film emotionally in a variety of ways.
If you enjoyed the film "Jennifer's Body: Unrated" comes with a good amount of special features and you get both the theatrical and extended versions of the film and a digital copy. But I really enjoyed how the Blu-ray release also gives us a much more in-depth glimpse of the writer Diablo Cody and her involvement in film. You don't get to see her shown all that much, so it was really cool to see several features with her.
Personally, for "Jennifer's Body: Unrated", it all comes down to the viewer. If you are a guy who wants to see Megan Fox, you'll dig the film. If you are a big Diablo Cody fan, you'll dig this Blu-ray release. If you're wanting to see the film for a scare, well... "Jennifer's Body" is not exactly that scary. But if you are wanting a popcorn flick that has elements of your favorite teen film and horror elements, you may find the extended version included on this Blu-ray release of "Jennifer's Body: Unrated" more to your liking."

"It's hard to explain what's so great about "Jennifer's Body" really, especially considering its total fail in the box office. Maybe we have to start with origins. For everyone who isn't aware, the scriptwriter and producer of the movie is Diablo "Juno" Cody. For me that name was enough to give a totally different perspective to a movie I'd otherwise probably never even watch.
"Jennifer's Body" is a dangerous mix of dark comedy, horror and smartass teeniness. Dangerous because it not only works well very rarely, but it's also very hard for the audience to get the right mindset to appreciate it. And obviously the movie failed spectacularly in that last regard, but I honestly believe it wasn't its fault. Because it's DAMN good! Sure, it has its hick-ups, but "Jennifer's Body" is smartly written (sometimes TOO smartly), it oozes sexual tension and has one of the best OSTs of the year. It doesn't really try that hard to scare you, but that doesn't stop the scary bits from working really well. And then there is the tampon line...
I don't have any illusions that I'll somehow turn the tide of hate around. I just wanted to put in my two cents."
