When a gorgeous cheerleader is possessed by a demon and starts feeding off the boys in a small Minnesota farming town, her "plain Jane" best friend must kill her, then escape from a correctional facility to go after the Satan-worshipping rock band responsible for the horrible transformation.
There's always a good girl and a bad girl in a movie like Jennifer's Body--but in this case the good girl is crazy and the bad girl is way, way evil. At least somebody thinks good girl Needy (Amanda Seyfried, from Mamma Mia!) is crazy: when the movie begins she's narrating from a psychiatric hospital, and the rest of the film is a flashback that explains her incarceration. It's all connected to longtime friend Jennifer (Megan Fox), a saucy high-school temptress, who mysteriously survives a horrific night out and transforms into a supernaturally powerful force with a taste for human blood. There's certainly some genre kick to this stuff, almost none of which is played straight--how could it be, with Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody penning the script? Yes, all those crackly, slang-peppered one-liners you loved (or hated) in Cody's Juno are back, with a vengeance. There's actually something more honest about the nastiness of the dialogue in Jennifer's Body, which at least doesn't try to corkscrew back into the heartwarming ambitions of Juno. Among the targets of Cody's satire are Needy's nice-guy beau (Johnny Simmons), a one-armed toupeed teacher (J.K. Simmons), and a satanic rock singer (Adam Brody). The raging hormones and bodily changes of teendom have always lent themselves to metaphorical usefulness in horror movies, but Cody doesn't ring many new changes on the device, beyond the brutal hilarity of her dialogue. That leaves us with showroom-ready Megan Fox, whose buffed sheen is just right for her soulless character. --Robert Horton

I could tell you the plot of the movie, but honestly the trailers give it all away and in the first 10 minutes of the movie, you know how it's going to end, so what's the point?
The only thing that would draw a person to want to see this movie is Megan Fox wearing skimpy outfits like that cheerleader outfit she is wearing on the cover of the DVD. And really, that's not enough to make me like a movie. I need more than Megan Fox dressed like she's going clubbing and jiggling around on the screen for 90 minutes.
The only person in this movie that actually did a good job acting was Amanda Seyfried. She actually pulled off the 'nerdy best friend," fairly well and made me like her character. Where I really rolled my eyes in the movie was when we had the character "Needy," going to the school library and doing research on demonic possession, devil worshiping and a succubus. I have a hard time believing that any high school library would have those books on their shelves.
In closing the movie is dumb, the plot is tired and recycled from other horror movies, the acting is lame and the lead actress can't act.
Skip this one.
It delivers less scare & more teenage girl angst than I would have liked. I mean come on!!! What is scarier than a Egotistical, homecomming queen type, cheerleader that is possessed by a flesh eating Succubus?! Right? This fails miserably.
What it does turn out to be is a thinly diguised way to get us men to the theatres (& blu-ray/netflix on the homefront) to watch Megan Fox & Amanda Seyfried duke it out & have a lesbian scene. Which it works wonderfull on that front.
It's a toss up on this either way
