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.
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
