Product Description

Hollywood's hottest young hunk, Jesse Metcalfe (TV's Desperate Housewives), delivers big laughs on campus in this "hot, hilarious film!'" (NBC-TV, Miami) When three gorgeous gals discover they've all been duped by smooth-talking stud John Tucker (Metcalfe), they hatch a devious revenge scheme to turn the tables on him. Now Tucker is going to have to change his ways...or the school jock will soon become the class joke!

Can the tantalizing teen trio turn this "serial dater" into a one-woman man? Find out in the hit movie that proves revenge isn't just sweet, it's hysterically funny.

Additional Features

The DVD release of John Tucker Must Die (which has both the theatrical release and a microscopically different "extended cut") has a bunch of useless extras, including two meager deleted scenes, a music video from a band you'll never hear from again, the usual lovefest from the cast ("I loved working with so-and-so!"), a bit of ego-stroking about Jesse Metcalfe's basketball skills, and a lame "dating quiz" that is completely counter to the spirit of the movie. Fortunately, the enjoyable commentary from director Betty Thomas and her editor has a good mix of inside information about moviemaking and on-set gossip (like who was most eager to do the kissing scenes). A brief featurette with the actors talking about their high school experiences (Jenny McCarthy hated it, but felt it prepared her for Hollywood) is also engaging. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Entertaining August 18, 2006
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just another teen movie July 26, 2006
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Tucker Must Die March 7, 2007
A Kid's Review
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! February 23, 2007
This is such a good movie! It keeps me laughing all the way through. I think that it is definitely a "chick flick" though. But ladies, if you need a good laugh, grab yourself a bowl of popcorn and pop it in the player. You'll be giggling in no time!

John Tucker Must Die PG 13


John Tucker ( Jesse Metcalfe) is the amazing high school, superstar. All the guys want to be him and all of the girls want to date him. However, this "great" guy is cheating on three girls. Beth (Sophia Bush) the main flirt, Carrie (Arielle Kebble) the brainy girl, and Heather (Ashanti Douglas) the prep snotty cheerleader. Kate Spencer (Brittany Snow) finds out about John while working as a waitress at the restaurant he always goes to. When Kate meets the three girls, she tells them all about John's scheme. And they are definitely not going to let him off the hook. Its time for some payback to crush him. When John meets Kate, he falls in love with her. But the girls are telling her to stay strong and to never give in. Don't forget, while all of this is happening John is still going out with Beth, Carrie, and Heather. Here it comes, John breaks up with all three of them just for Kate. Now they are kicking it into over drive! But everything they did just seemed to make the girls like him even more. But one event changes everything. Even thought John and Kate have been on one date together, and didn't even say her own words but what the girls wanted her to say John still did it. John gave Kate his watch and asked her to be his girlfriend. But I can't tell you her answer. At Johns Birthday party... Just watch the movie!

I recommend this movie to girls and boys (it may be a chick flick but boys, you can learn a lesson here!) ages 12 and up. But remember this movies rating is PG 13.

This movie is my all time favorite movie ever. I just love it. It kept me laughing all night long. I have been talking about this movie nonstop ever since I have seen it. Which was three months ago. My friends are about to slap me because I wont be quite. In short, watch the movie!!!
