As I liked what I saw in the trailer and Megan Fox, I decided to watch this movie and I ended up liking it. I can honestly say that some will and won’t find it disappointing. A geeky friend called Needy (Amanda Seyfried) and hot cheerleader Jennifer (Megan Fox) are the best of friends even though they both don’t share the same interests with each other. They have even less in common when Jennifer becomes possessed and has a thirst for human blood after a mysterious fire at a bar one night. When the males of the school fall under her charms and kills them gruesomely, Needy must try and save the males and stop Jennifer from killing before she kills Needy’s boyfriend. So Jennifer’s Body may not be the type of movie to take a girl out on a date to see but it is quite good for a teen horror-slash-comedy movie. The story is mediocre which would be expected in this type of movie but the witty one-liners all the way through the movie make up for it. Character development was timed correctly in the movie and also the cinematic relationship between Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried was believable and great to watch as an on-screen duo. The acting was actually quite good and I thought the cast worked very well for the movie. I also liked the music from movie-band Low Shoulder.
I would say that the story is actually decent but I thought the ending almost spoilt the movie entirely as it was just ridiculous, you’ll see what I mean if you see it. I would say to see this if you haven’t already. Girls will like it because of the bitchiness and story and the guys will love it because…uh…Megan Fox! Quite an entertaining movie to watch. The acting was fairly good and the story was decent but the ending…it’s such a shame it ended quite bad…but it’s not bad enough that it spoilt the movie.
