Jennifer's Body - Why's Everybody Gotta Hate?
For some reason, people are really, really down on Jennifer's Body. And I know that I'm about six to eight months late on this, but it was on very long wait on Netlix and I wasn't about to see it in the theater.
But people are really down on it, especially the best parts.
It was an enjoyable horror movie. Most horror movies suck. But this one is at least funny! And Megan Fox wasn't terrible terrible.
From the imdb movie quote section:
Nikolai Wolf (as portrayed by Seth Cohen): Do you know how hard it is to make it as an indie band these days? There are so many of us, and we're all so cute and it's like if you don't get on Letterman or some retarded soundtrack, you're screwed, okay? Satan is our only hope.
Jennifer Check (as portayed by Megan Fox): PMS isn't real Needy, it was invented by the boy-run media to make us seem like we're crazy.
Nikolai Wolf: "Do you want to be a loser, or do you want to be rich and awesome like that guy from Maroon 5?"
My theory: most of the people who love Juno are not going to watch a silly horror movie, because it doesn't look quirky enough.This means that only the Diablo Cody haters were paying attention and decided to flood the internet with bad reviews. Plus all the Megan Fox haters.
As the great Roger Ebert said, "...as a movie about a flesh-eating cheerleader, it's better than it has to be." I think that people should try to remember that.
