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.
November 6, 2009
It isn't thrilling. Fox can't act. The backchat is more filthy than funny.

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 29, 2019
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.

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

A lover's tryst turns to carnage! A catfight between chicks in prom dresses in a swimming-pool! Set-pieces like these should be a slam-dunk, even shot in Vancouver on a low budget, but Kusama fumbles them all.

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.

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.

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.
September 17, 2009
Cody's labored quips fall flat coming from these actors and in this context, and her script is maddeningly short on suspense or excitement.

Clever one-liners don't cover the cruelty here. Jennifer is shallow. The movie about her is, too.

If you're in search for a way to ogle Megan Fox's body, there are a lot better ways to do it than subjecting yourself to this.

February 18, 2012
"Jennifer's Body" is not scary enough for horror and not knowing enough for commentary on horror.
September 17, 2009
Cody's sophomore effort shows no real feel for teen comedy or teen horror; somebody undid her doodle.

September 18, 2009
The tone wavers, the direction's slackly indecisive and visually drab, and in the middle of it is a thinly conceived antagonist played by Megan Fox. Honestly, she's a pretty bad actress. She doesn't seem to get Cody's sense of humor. At all.

Like a sloppy episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

March 25, 2011
In trying to create a modern horror take on Mean Girls (2004), in which the protagonists redefine their rivalries through physical instead of verbal viciousness, she has merely delivered an updated, dumbed-down rehash of Carrie (1976).
November 9, 2009
There's not a moment in Jennifer's Body that's intentionally scary, and the characters never reach beyond the level of stereotype.
November 6, 2009
Although Jennifer's Body offers up both comedy and horror, each is doled out in only the meanest of amounts, with the film just scraping through to a lacklustre and unsatisfying finale.
March 28, 2019
Touted as a sexy horror movie, it's not especially sexy or scary.
