When I first saw the trailer – no, when I first heard of this Diablo Cody writing project, I thought it was going to suck. Although yes, I have to admit I thought it was interesting (and brave?) for Cody to go dark and B-movie-ish after going adorable and Oscar winner-ry in Juno.
But no, I did not watch Jennifer’s Body when it came out in the theaters. And no, I wasn’t surprised when the film was declared a genuine flop. Even Megan Fox wasn’t able to save this horror flick, so yeah, it must really suck then, I thought.
So I watched it today. So I was wrong.
I enjoyed it. A fun watch. ;) To quote Ebert: “It’s not art, it’s not ‘Juno,’ it’s not ‘Girlfight,’ for that matter, but as a movie about a flesh-eating cheerleader, it’s better than it has to be.”
