Movie Reviews

Surprisingly Entertaining
Ashley Quinn | IL United States | 08/18/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With little to do in an unfamiliar town, I found myself sitting in a familiar place: a movie theater. My only choice was seeing John Tucker Must Die, which I'll admit I was less than thrilled to see. I just hoped that I hadn't wasted 8 bucks to eat overpriced popcorn. And I was pleasantly surprised: John Tucker Must Die is actually funny and cute. Granted, the title gives off an edgy feel, something this movie is completely devoid of, instead being a chick flicky, teen comedy in the same vein as 10 Things I Hate About You.

Kate (Brittany Snow) is the new girl at school. Her mom (Jenny McCarthy) has a tendency to skip town when things get rough in her love life (a la Hilary Duff's mom in The Perfect Man), so Kate is pretty clueless when it comes to love. Which is what makes her the perfect vessel for three girls to use in order to get back at John Tucker, who had been dating all three of them. So they set their seemingly evil plan in motion: get John Tucker to fall for Kate and then break his heart. But what happens when Kate begins thinking that there is more than meets the eye with John Tucker? That maybe, just maybe, he actually DOES like her and she actually likes him? Don't get too excited about a possible romance between Kate and John because there's another Tucker that Kate has her eye on. And he has his eye on her.

Instead of teetering between edgy and cute, the movie really should've picked a side and owned it. Edgy or cute. Pick one. Brittany Snow is absolutely adorable. She has that Reese Witherspoon quality about her, making you like her no matter what she does. And Jesse Metcalfe as John Tucker? Well, he's nice to look at, but I wonder why he left Desperate Housewives to, well, act in a movie that could be called Desperate Teenagers. Oh well. Good movie, cute plot, surprisingly un-cliche ending... RECOMMENDED!"
Just another teen movie

"John Tucker Must Die is just like all the other teen comedies of our time. We have the wallflower, Kate (played by Brittany Snow), who feels invisible because her mother is constantly moving them around on her search for the perfect man. Because she moves around so much, she feels invisible in school and finds it hard being the new girl. She desperately wants to fit in and decides to try harder.

At her new school a guy named John Tucker is the most popular guy--captain of the basketball team, loaded parents, the whole shebang. Her job as a waitress at the local restaurant lets her see the fact that John wines and dines a different girl every night of the week, all of them completely oblivious to the fact that he's cheating on them. He dates one of each high school stereotype: the pretty head cheerleader, Heather (Ashanti), the smart reporter, Carrie (Arielle Kebbel), and the vegan activist/whore, Beth (Sophia Bush). When they discover that they're getting played, the triumvirate bands together with Kate's help to give John a taste of his own medicine.

This movie is fun and cute, but just another teen movie. Think of any of the elements that made high school cinema great and they're present in this movie. The team of popular girls who get together to make the wallflower cute and popular (Heathers, Jawbreaker); the cute quirky guy who can never seem to get the girl (10 Things I Hate About You, Bring It On); and the moral that popularity isn't really everything and you should just be yourself (Clueless, Mean Girls). It was a lighthearted comedy with plenty of laughs and some nice shots of Jesse Metcalfe in a thong. I think this would be fun for the same people who liked the movies mentioned above and those who don't take it too seriously."

"this is a must see movie. me and anyone else that i have asked has felt the same way. it is PG-13, and about 90 minutes long. if you like this movie, i would recommend she's the man, with amanda bynes and channing tatum. john tucker must die is a movie about how 3 girls think they have the best boyfriend, only to find that they are all dating the same guy, john tucker, star of the basketball team. then when an amazing girl comes along, they send her on a mission to break john tucker's heart, and the movie is just the journey and drama along the way. once again, it is a must-see."
