Jennifer's Body
 
Anybody seen this movie yet? Wifey and I wanted to go see it but the negative reviews kept us home. Mojo reports that it only made 6 million over the weekend. That's pretty low for a horror movie that has been advertised ever since its inception. Though the budget is 16 million and I am sure they would recover that, but a 6 million weekend opening for a Megan Fox movie seems unnatural. :lol:

6 million for a Megan Fox movie seems unnatural? Can you name one that did better that didn't feature giant robots destroying each other?

The funny thing to me is that the Jennifer Aniston movie (which looks REALLY bad) did 2 million more bucks, opening on almost a thousand fewer screens.

Methinks Megan Fox should stick with Transformer movies...

The previews looked crappy. I had no desire to see it and outside of horny fanboys, I can't really imagine anyone who was waiting with baited breath. Ditto for Jennifer Aniston's crappy movie. The only people lining up for more of the same from her are Aniston's die-hard fans.

All I know about this movie is that I'm tired of all the commercials for it on TV.

Megan burnt her bridges and won't be invited back to transformers as anything but an excuse to make money... Oh?

No change there than.

Where is this scorn (in me) coming from?

She was a solid actress on Hope and faith for four years.

That had to have proved she wasn't just talking boobs?

In Michael Medved's review, he said for a movie called "Jennifer's Body," you don't even get to see much of Megan Fox's body. :lol:

I think that did in a lot of male viewers.

That was basically what I was going to ask. I think that explains the low turnout.

Yeah when you call a movie "--- Body." You would THINK that the namesake's "body" would be shown more... ah... completely?

Fail.

Then, in 10 we only barely saw more of Bo Derek in a swim suit than anything truly graphic.

Body politic, body of evidence, body of lies?

Not sure what the first two are, but the third at least has someone who can act in it.

I have no desire to do anything further with Megan Fox beyond glancing at her on a random magazine cover when I'm buying beer at Kroger's at ten-thirty in the morning.

I saw the film yesterday. It was pretty entertaining. More tolerable than Juno, which I can't stand. I liked the idea of best friends becoming sworn enemies. It was an interesting riff on high school and the dynamics of high school relationships.
