Coming after decades without a tangible, fighting women's rights movement, the film is a tragic reflection of what a lack of struggle against oppression can do to people. The opening line declares, "Hell is a teenage girl," and if you've been a teenage girl in the recent past, you would probably concur. The actor playing Jennifer, Megan Fox, has perhaps the most unrealistic unattainable body in Hollywood right now. Almost all her roles, such as in the movie Transformers, have required her to be vapid and have a "hot" body.

How can you tell? Stephanie Zacharek September 18, 2: Even if its star, the bodaciously built Megan Fox, were sexy in anything but a plastic way, you could make an argument for it as gore-fest eye candy. But "Jennifer's Body" -- directed by Karyn Kusama, from a script by Diablo Cody -- is so contemptuous toward its own characters, and its audience, that it chokes off any visceral thrills it might have offered.
Yes, you heard me correctly. Unfortunately, none of the viewing public went to see said masterpiece. I went to film school.
Not me; I was on the right side of history on this one. Megan Fox is an actress with a very mixed public reception, and a limited filmography despite her being fan-cast in multiple projects for years. In many ways, Fox has been dealt a bad hand when it comes to her public image because for much of her career was defined by the lecherous gaze of one man, and once he cut her off, no one tried to help her. I also liked that her character, Mikaela Banes, was a badass who was good with cars. From then on, I was a Fox fan.
