The underlining story DOES have a bit of merit. I loved the waterfall bit, with the "twirling into limbo" theme, it was a nice touch. There were shades of a "cool set of elements" from time to time, but they felt rare and far too short. I have no love for the over hyped Megan Fox, and despite the fact she has the intelligence of a squished grape, I can't blame her dull performance totally on her as it was her dialogue (not her CGI gore-face) that sent shivers down my spine. Amanda Seyfried was the sole reason I stayed interested. I dug her character transformation, the opening enigma and the totally satisfying ending her character delivers.
The unrated gimmick/feature is exactly what you think it is here with only a couple minutes between run times that make no real difference whatsoever (if you were hoping for that rumored Megan Fox frontal shot, you’ll be sorely disappointed). Horror always sizzles on Blu-ray and you’ll get no complaints from me in that regard as this baby looks very slick from head to toe.
What's ultimately entertaining to me about JENNIFER’S BODY is that this film was meant to shine a light down on Fox, but instead the show is totally stolen by Seyfried. Even more interesting is how Jennifer was indeed a victim, but due to her bitchy flatness and forgettable character, we (the audience) have ZERO sympathy for her (I suppose the fact she was eating people didn't help her cause, but still). The only person I actually gave a shit about was Needy, and as far as her presence in the film is concerned, I was a happy camper. But because the story was inadvertently centered around Fox, I found myself overly disappointed. This film could have been gold if the script had a competent writer, but sadly, we got a script drenched in Diablo Cody's putrid stench and it shows. I'd like say that maybe Hollywood will learn from this, but we all know that's not going to happen.
Deleted Scenes: This thirteen minute montage plays out more like extended scenes that don’t add much to the existing material. At the very least there’s a bit of nudity for those angered by the lack of Fox rack.
Gag Reel: Two minutes of not so funny footage. I can’t help but smile at the sight of Lance Henrickson though; he’s a welcome addition to any horror film.
Jennifer’s Body: The Dead Pool: Here we get a look into the gruesome deaths and insanely creepy makeup Fox wears. The unfortunate part is we have to hear it from Diablo Cody.
Video Diaries: This one’s twelve minutes of random video footage shot during the making of the film. Megan’s good at pretending not to like all the extra attention.
Megan Fox is Hot: A one minute tribute to Megan Fox’ hotness. What can I say, she IS hot.
Megan Fox “Peer Pressure” PSA: A very short (40 seconds) commercial about peer pressure featuring Megan Fox. Fox seems like the sort of chick who was totally a victim of peer pressure as a kid.
Fox Movie Channel Presents Life After Film School with Writer Diablo Cody: An horrible half hour with Diablo Cody as she explains the method behind her madness. Please kill me now.
Previews: There are a handful of trailers as well as a Digital Copy of the film.
Extra Tidbit: Forget Jennifer's Body, I'd like to go a round or two with Seyfried's body!
