The Real Skinny on Jennifer’s Body

The Real Skinny on Jennifer’s Body

After finally being able to see the movie, I can’t say that I agree with the critics. The movie kept me engaged throughout, and also included specific things about the film that I liked, besides seeing Megan Fox naked (which by the way, there’s no gratuitous female nudity in the film). Jennifer’s Body is a horror film with a twist, most horror films involve an innocent female character getting stalked, raped, tortured or brutally murdered by a psychotic or sociopathic male. Director Karyn Kusama does a great job in presenting Megan Fox as physically attractive and unattainable without gratuitously sexualizing the actress in the way Michael Bay has with the Transformers flicks.

I am not sure if i connected with the ideas about female relationships underneath the surface of the story, but I am sure that females did. I did note that there was also a lot about the nature of female friendships. Jennifer is one of those insecure pretty girls who attaches herself to a less-attractive “best friend” so that she’ll look even better by contrast. She’s the kind of friend who subverts and subtly undermines her BFF, then tries to make it appear as though her friend is the one imagining or over-exaggerating slights or offenses. The much talked about girl-on-girl kiss between Jennifer and Amanda Seyfried is about the sexual tension that often exists in female friendships, particularly in adolescence, not the hot sexual scene that many male movie goers expected, or looked forward to.

I actually liked Megan Fox’s performance in this film. Don’t get me wrong, in the Transformers films she’s been little more than eye candy, which isn’t a bad thing, but in Jennifer’s Body, she actually does give a credible and pretty smart performance.

In interviews, Fox has alluded to being aware that she’s perceived primarily as a sex object, and has said that she wants to avoid that over-exposure; perhaps that’s partly what led her to take the role of Jennifer, which required her to be a little fun and campy, and to give a performance that didn’t just rely on her physical assets.

Cody’s particular ear for dialogue may annoy the hell out of you, but she’s right that teens, like the rest of us, stratify ourselves socially in part by use of language. Teenagers are solipsistic and therefore are certain that any adults in their vicinity have little else to do besides listen in on the fascinating conversations they’re having, therefore they must talk in teenspeak.

Is Jennifer’s Body a true horror movie? Not in my opinion.

Is Megan Fox finally given the chance to prove that she’s not just another pretty face? I believe that she played the role well, but look forward to seeing her hone and define her skills in different roles and characters.

On an ending note, I’d like to address the fact that I have read many reviews of this film, and in each one, the RottenTomatoes.com review was referenced, however after visiting the page, I realized that only 116 people (of the 1.5 Million people that paid to see the movie) had rated it to give it the current 42% rating. If you actually enjoyed the movie, or don’t feel that it is getting a correct review feel free to express your opinion below, or even visit RottenTomatoes to give it an acurrate review.

Heather says:

To all Readers and Megan,

Basically I’m just typing to put forward a few choice views and many people’s opinions so this may be a little different twist as to what your used to hear.

First of all my name is Heather and I am 19 years old and I work as a business adminstrator at a college I’m more of a half-fan with a few doubts and questions to the public which I hope is read and brought to attention.

Megan fox? Super person or just person? Lets face it, all she is just a person with one entitlement of “fame” being a slight difference in comparison with us. I’ve read constant comments with phrases such as “hot”, “stunning”, “amazing”. but most of those words are an understatement, a “true” beauty is a natural beauty like Amanda Seyfried now she is a person to respect and idolize if necessary.

The people to admire are those that have to work every hour that god sends those are the people to admire. All your going to do is bulk up her ego saying such misused compliments, I will admit a few are realistic but most of them are exaggerations and as sad as today is.. we all know that obscene pictures of naked women actually sell because there are both male and female perverts out there willing to buy the merchandise and newsagents and newsreporters are willing to market it to make money.

Celebrities are none other than people like you and me, those who do good deads in the daytime having the feeling of accomplishment not for being born into a rich heritage (paris hilton) or judgement on beauty or even a luxury career that just might get lucky which is wrongly brought into the public eye, no. A business person who begins a small company from scratch, investing money into their property every month and which will soon expand over the years with their shareholders, staff and loyal customers those people are today’s celebritites.

Most importantly however are those who volunteer to donate, someone who owns a large investment of money for example and volunteers to send half to a poor country facing drout or to pay for simple nescessities that we take for granted every day or even donating to an animal shelter just so they can face another day with hopefulness in their eyes to find an owner to look after them, those are today’s celebrities.

I’m not arguing against movies or anything because if it wasn’t for actors and actresses there would be no movies and for many years they have entertained me but the local radio channel is just as good. I’m just outlining the meaning of a “true celebrity” nothing more..and I just hope at least a few of you haven’t forgotton who you are, were there are few of them..there are many of us.

Thank you,

Paola says:

i saw the movie like a week ago and as much as i love megan fox i have to keep it real….the movie realy sucked. The script was horrible. it had alot of annoying and occuard moments on alot of the scarry scenes wich took away from the intensity. There was one perticular scene where jennifer got stabbed and was bleeding to death and she just came out of no where and said “Do u have a pad?” its just rediculous how the script was made. But theres no doubt that megan fox can act. Love u megan but ur movie sucked =/
