I don't know, anyone going based on those pictures might be pretty pissed off. I don't recall her wearing that outfit at any point in the movie.

Their biggest mistake was marketing this towards guys.
That may be a big part of the problem. Just as the poster has her in that schoolgirl outfit(did she wear that at all in the movie?) these pics are of a glorified and sexed up cheerleader outfit that apparently she didn't wear.

Maybe other pics have her in a French Maid outfit dusting the teachers lounge for all we know. Seems to be the theme the marketing team was taking.

More story in the marketing campain couldn't have hurt, cause the masses don't follow this stuff like we do. Too many of them solely base it off whats in the campaign.

Megan Fox was in the cheerleading outfit in her very first scene.

Wow, she's skinny.

I just don't see what all the fuss is about her.

Figures. I came into the theater about five minutes late because my friend was dragging his ass. He's really hot on her, so I'm going to email him those pictures and mock him.

Re: Jennifer's Body

She's attractive. Honestly I think Amanda Seyfried is hotter. Maybe I have a thing for nerdy blondes.

Harvey pretty much described my problems with Juno in a very cutesy manner.

Re: Jennifer's Body

If I were built like that, I'd run around in that cheerleader outfit for a hot minute.

Seriously, Fox is eye candy. Still, it takes a lot more than that to drag me into a theater to see basically a 'starlet' these days. Granted, I'm female, so I might be a harder nut to crack, but obviously the target audience wasn't impressed either.

Re: Jennifer's Body

That's just the thing. It was marketed toward guys who think she's hot, but the movie itself is aimed towards teenaged girls.

Diablo Cody's cutesy, sometimes nonsensical dialogue (I was reminded of "honest to blog" while reading a review of this film recently) can be grating. Other elements annoyed me as well. Anti-abortion protester as cutesy (oh, boy, watch me overuse that word here) and loveable? Planned Parenthood volunteer as multi-pierced, tattoo-ladden distributor of kinky condoms? Juno gets pregnant and the most her parental figures can manage is surprise that Michael Cera's character had it in him? And of course the middle-aged man with an interest in Dario Argento films turns out to be a total creeper. I'm no doubt exaggerating some points, but I haven't had the "pleasure" of a second viewing, so I hope you'll forgive me. What a bizarre and vomit-inducing universe.

Eh, we'll just have to agree to disagree then. It might help that much of Juno rang true for me (as in, those sorts of situations and characters really happen/exist). But I realize this wasn't a Juno thread, so I'll let be.

Megan Fox however, yes please. But this movie looked "meh" from the beginning, and I can get Megan Fox hotness from the web.

Re: Jennifer's Body

I haven't seen the film but I've scrapped to video of the lesbian make out scene 89 times at work today.

Re: Jennifer's Body

I agree with Spiff that the "lesbian" make-out scene went on perhaps just a little too long (even though I would have complained had it went on not as long). Even my friend who is no snob said to me, "This is pointless".

Re: Jennifer's Body

Why guess? (Link to the scene in question, what I have to assume is the only reason to see the movie! And anyone who thinks it goes on too long and not long enough is a fruitcake...yeah I used the F-word)
