Jennifer's Body Review
Eric Moro: Hey guys, Jim and Eric here and we’re going to be talking to you today about Jennifer’s Body. I'm going to keep the premises from pretty simple and it’s basically a horror comedy film that follows to really hot high school girls one who is possessed by a demon and the other one is battling to try and stop her. So let’s talk about these two hot high school girls you know.
Jim Vejvoda: Yes, shall we.
Eric Moro: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried.
Jim Vejvoda: That’s right, well Megan Fox obviously plays the title role. And you know she is little better than expected because you know she’s hot don’t get me wrong, beautiful to look at and on pure swing factor at works. And she has you know some facility with the dialog in the movie. Amada Seyfried is you know more of the plain Jane of the two, they kind of ugly her up a little bit for this movie. But you know they have chemistry together but it’s only when they're characters are actually have to—I don’t know do stuff in the movie that starts to fall apart.
Eric Moro: Yeah, well talk about the chemistry there’s that one big scene that everybody here is probably aware off, we have the click here on ign.com it’s the big girl on girl kiss between the two of them.
Jim Vejvoda: Right, and you know yeah, it's nice to watch and all that but it’s not shocking they’ve been playing about this for having shock factor and maybe 10 or 15 years ago would but you can see that sort of thing now on basic cable shows.
Eric Moro: So how do you think this movie then fairs against you know other horror movies out there.
Jim Vejvoda: That’s not a good horror movie it's mediocre, run in a mill, it has no scares in it, there’s nothing really original about it. No inventive kills, so in a horror movie level it’s a flap.
Eric Moro: Yeah, I’d have to say, I’d have to agree actually and I think the die hard horror films are going to lock out on that – but teenagers might connect with it. I think a lot of that has to do with the dialog because the film is written of course by Diablo Cody right.
Jim Vejvoda: Yeah, she won an Oscar for writing Juno, so she likes to think she has an ear for teenagers now. I think we’re all kind of maybe an agreement that teenagers don’t really talk like that but it certainly makes her you know some entertaining and very funny one liners but the things is that the dialog is so stylized in this movie. It almost sounds like that Diablo Cody want to be written, instead of Diablo Cody. And it’s so sort of arch and self conscious and obvious and so many pop culture references that they just, it kind of just has a numbing effect after a while.
Eric Moro: Yeah, that hyper reality really did tend to pull me out at certain moments but I got to admit, I did laugh at just the right times they wanted you to laugh, sometimes.
Jim Vejvoda: Yeah, yeah I had a few good singers in there and really did and they help elevate the movie above just the sort of other run of the mill teenage horror movies.
Eric Moro: So as the editor providing the official review for the film. Why don’t you give us your star rating and your final thoughts.
Jim Vejvoda: I'm going to give a two and a half stars and that’s based purely on the hotness factor of the two leading ladies and Diablo Cody’s one liner. So few of them it’s ultimately, it’s not scary enough or original enough to be good as a horror movie, so it doesn’t work as that. It doesn’t really work as a comedy or satire as much you would like to think it is. And it doesn’t really work as a social commentary, which is kind of a half of us try to do. So overall it's not enough of anything. And I wish it had been just a pure train wreck, so you can just enjoy, in a bad movie level. Instead it's just mediocre.
Eric Moro: Yeah, I'm going to add that this is definitely a horror film for the MySpace set not the true horror film.
Jim Vejvoda: Right.
