Megan Fox has my vote. She is the most entertaining entity on screen today. Diablo Cody though a disgusting woman is a terrifically raunchy screenwriter. This movie contains dozens of golden comedy nuggets referencing pop culture. She understands that people are living in the now. There are inferences about teenage horniness and the extremes of hormonal passion, undercurrents of the curiosity that drives women toward accidental or purposeful bisexual episodes, and instant messenger references that everybody should recognize.
Jennifer is a hot teenager who has been kidnapped by a group of devilish aspiring musicians. They effectively kidnap her as her best friend stands idly by unable to prevent this most recent bad decision on Jennifer’s part. The musicians stab her to death nearby a tidal pool that defines the town (a mystery comparable to the Bermuda Triangle only 100 times sillier). Instead of dying, Jennifer manages to stay alive. To boot, she is not a virgin (surprise, surprise) and thus a curse is placed on her. When hungry she will lose her attractiveness, smooth skin, sexy lustrous hair and begin looking ordinary. When full she will resemble the teenage sex goddess as has always been the case. Unfortunately Jennifer has lost an appetite for regular food (oat bran, prunes, just kidding) and has a newfound craving for teenage boys and their insides. This leads to some raucous kissing scenes followed by a teething stage in which Jennifer gobbles up football players, punk rockers and her best friend’s boyfriend, oops!
Rather than feeling frightened during the movie I laughed roughly ten times. Although I can admit with some certainty the audience must have wanted to devour me as a consequence it was worth every bellowing laugh. There is no terror here. Jennifer eats horny idiots and makes out with her best friend several times. She eats her best friend’s boyfriend and then becomes horny and beautiful all over again. This movie is truly a statement about relationships and what they do to us. Diablo Cody must be a commitmentphile. Great movie, utterly meaningless and totally senseless, but 100% entertaining. That is what counts right?
