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

Her worried friend is thinking their doing a 4 way with Jennifer but that's far from it it's so much more something horrific is done and she'll never be the same again. When Jennifer comes back she shows up at her friends house covered in blood in the middle of the night but she's changed and over the coming days slowly begins to show drastic scary as hell changes one being her new appetite. I dont want to be a buzz kill and ruin it by giving away too much of the plot before you see this movie bit it is way better than I thought. Watch the pretty blond girl Jennifer's friend in the end there is a plot twist with her you'll love and it's freaking awesome, when I saw it I was like OMG sweet this is epic
By no means am I disappointed in this movie. The effects were interesting, the lines were corny but funny. And Amanda and Megan kiss. Being a girl, I wasn't all 'woohoo' about it but I found it really...enticing. I like this movie because it gives a different look of what's high school evil and what's pure, demonic evil. Maybe this director will turn this spin on Mean Girls. Huh...(forming ideas...)
As for the film itself, I personally wish I had spent the money on a different movie. But I'm sure that younger people in their mid to late teens and into their 20's might enjoy it more than I, so I won't completely bash it. There's been worse "scarey" movies made. Megan's character was a little more foul mouthed than she needed to be. For that reason I wouldn't recommend kids much under 14 or so. I would like to see Megan Fox playing a quality character closer to her actual age for a change. Seems like a waste to keep portraying her as a teen. Maybe there's one out there that I'm not aware of.
JENNIFERS BODY stars the ever lovely Megan Fox as Jennifer. She attends a concert with her female friend and at the end of the concert goes with the band alone. What she doesn't know is they are planning on sacrificing her so they can get a demon to do their every wish. (When has that ever worked). The surprise payoff comes at the end of the film. However, she needs a human 'snack' every once in awhile and many of her schoolmates become her prey. Except her best friend who feels guilty for abandoning her with the band.
Things go downhill rapidly, of course, (always seems that way when a demon is involved). To tell you anymore would ruin a great little 'horror' film for you. And the ending is still a surprise, a nice little touch you don't get very ofen. The price is right and it's a good movie. You won't go wrong with this one. I promise. Enjoy!
