Cody only subverts the genre after covering all her bases with a good story, and she seems to know her stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Unfortunately, Jennifer's Body is a horror movie, and the inevitable girlfright devolves into senseless bloodbath, which doesn't suit the talents of either Cody or Kusama.

As Jennifer rampages the town, lame digs at pop culture targets such as Miley Cyrus and Aquamarine ensue, leaving us to wonder how much time Cody spent on her script once she came up with its first line.

Not without its problems, but it is an enjoyable romp.

[T]his film feels more like a comedy than it does a contemporary horror movie, and I'm sure those who might end up liking Jennifer's Body, will appreciate the humor over the scares/gore.

The real shame is that, devoid of proper context, the dialogue now really does seem - as the Cody- haters contend - like little more than a series of unattached, curled-lip one-liners.

While "Jennifer's Body" doesn't always connect -- particularly when it tries to build horror-movie tension -- it's still an obvious labor of movie-geek love.

This could have been, like, so much more fun.

It might be a whole lot easier to like this film if it didn't spend so much time trying to prove how clever it is.

The bitingly smart, funny teen-speak is carried over from "Juno," along with sharp pop culture references and a sassy feminist attitude, but the million-dollar question has to be: Is it scary? Only occasionally, I'm afraid.
March 28, 2019
Touted as a sexy horror movie, it's not especially sexy or scary.

The failure of "Jennifer's Body" lies with the partnership between Kusama and Cody.

March 28, 2019
Jennifer's Body contains so many bad narrative decisions and hackneyed horror gimmicks that it's difficult to do justice to the overall product.
March 28, 2019
Tart, largely humorless and tonally challenged, "Jennifer's Body," is what happens when good scripts go wrong or perhaps when directors completely miss the point of the text.

March 28, 2019
Juno scriptwriter Diablo Cody puts her poison pen to work in a slippery comic horror that unfolds like a gutted high-schooler's intestines.

March 28, 2019
Instead of playing like a hip outsider's subversive new genre-mash, Jennifer's Body comes across as a tame, derivative vehicle for the girl from the Transformers franchise.

Jennifer's Body assures that Cody is not a one-hit wonder - not that she needed to prove it.

Jennifer's Body now ticks all of the boxes for what film audiences are now desperately demanding from Hollywood...
