Jen's Body gets date

100%

JENNIFER'S BODY has been test screening since this summer so when exactly are the rest of us going to see the horror comedy from Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody? If you were looking forward to it, you might have to look a little further into the future. Fox has announced a September 18th release date for JENNIFER'S BODY; a move that makes you wonder about Fox's confidence in the film. September is often referred to as a graveyard for movies that studios are looking to dump. Just take a look at this year's September where RIGHTEOUS KILL, THE WOMEN, MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL and BANGKOK DANGEROUS opened (to an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 14%). Now it's not a sure fire thing that the movie is a dud but it's not a good sign. And remember, in our early test screening review, a JoBlo.com reader gave it a 3/10 and said it was "quite awful." Then again, I could change my tune if they edited back in that Megan Fox nude scene... What do you think? Are you still holding out hope?

Extra Tidbit: Let's hope that the next nine months leave ample time for fixing this film up...

1--I've been very curious about this movie.
2--I really liked THE WOMEN.
3--I didn't have any desire to see any of the other movies that Fox put out this year.
4--Too bad this release date is still so far awy.

I love Juno, looking forward to Jen's Body

Juno was my favorite movie last year, so I'm looking forward to seeing whatever Diablo Cody writes next.

Even so, I was offended at how much people praised Juno, not because I thought it was undeserving, but because Hard Candy was an even better Ellen Page movie with an even better Ellen Page performance and it was not nearly as popular. People were acting like they had "discovered" an amazing actress, but where were all those people the year before when Hard Candy was released? The

The greatness of Ellen Page was clearly on display in that movie, a phenomenal performance, yet she got no nominations for that? She did get a best actress Hard Candy nomination from the Golden Schmoes, so that proves you guys have better taste than all those other award ceremonies.

I'm not expecting Jen's Body to be as good as Juno. Every aspect of that movie just came together perfectly. All I'm expecting from Jen's Body is an entertaining movie. I'm a fan of Megan Fox, I think she has some potential. Should be fun. If not, oh well. No matter what though, I think the Diablo Cody haters will come out in full force when this movie is released saying either A) Diablo Cody is a one hit wonder or B) See, Juno wasn't that good, all you people were fooled.

No strong opinion really. Personally think Juno was one of the most overrated films of last year and Megan Fox ought to have a full nude scene like the production photos.

The September release is a definite burn.

I'm hopeful for any project starring Megan Fox, but I hope this one is entertaining.
