Megan Fox's "Jennifer's Body" opens today and the PR machine is running over time to promote what is basically a large budget B movie to the masses.
Besides the interviews with Megan that are popping up everywhere I think the funniest thing associated with the film is the tongue-in-cheek fake PSA where Megan appears as herself to speak out against bullying in high school.
Of course as with most of Megan's project, you get the "this isn't art" argument from the Internet masses.
Well no it's not, from what I have seen "Jennifer's Body"is like I said, basically a glorified B movie.
You shouldn't be expecting an Oscar winning flick here.
Although Jennifer's Body was written by Diablo Cody (aka Brook Busey) who also wrote 2007's Juno and Juno got four 2008 Academy Awards nominations.
And she also wrote the TV series "United States of Tara" for Showtime which was nominated for an Emmy Award.
Jennifer's Body was directed by Karyn Kusama who also did Æon Flux (2005) and Girlfight (2000).
Æon Flux really didn't do well at the box office, it grossed $52 million and cost $62 million to make.
However Girlfight (starring Michelle Rodriguez) was a critical success, winning the Director's Award the Grand Jury Prize at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival, and it got several awards and nominations, including good press from the National Board of Review, Deauville Film Festival, Independent Spirit Awards, Gotham Awards and the Las Vegas Film Critics Sierra Awards.
So don't count this film out yet.
Written by a woman, directed by a woman and starring Megan Fox.
It at least has the possibility of hitting cult status.
