Another film I’ve been intentionally avoiding. I thought this would be a crap direct-to-video cheapie. The fact that its so popular reinforced that idea.
Was I wrong! I really, really liked this film. So much so, I’m actually thinking I might give it a rewatch before watching the sequels.
This film made me a little mad, actually. Why the fuck did Diablo Cody get all the credit and rocket to success while this film, made 9 years earlier, get nothing more than a small fan base and a few sequels?
I can’t even tell you how similar the films are. Superficially, there are some similarities, yes, but it’s even the nuances that are similar. And it makes Jennifer’s Body just reek of rip-off.
Now I’m just nervous about watching the sequels.
