We Disagree: Jennifer's Body (1 short paragraph)

Though I'm not sure if it's what Diablo Cody and co. intended, Jennifer's Body comes off as an exceptionally sloppy, low-rate Buffy riff in the horror-comedy genre. Amanda Seyfreid schluffs off the ditsy blond of Mean Girls well enough to venture into nerd/hard-ass territory, but Megan Fox and her toe-thumbs are given overwrought, ungainly dialogue to wade through, and unclear direction on what exactly the character/demon's purpose is. As far as high school horrors go, it rounds the bend from smart to socially awkward autistic.
