Megan Fox eats boys in new movie, Jennifer's Body

Jennifer's Body takes place in Devil's Kettle, a middle-of-nowhere small town where everyone knows everyone. Eager to up her slut status, Jennifer Check (Megan Fox) wants to see (and presumably, sleep with) a band playing at a local bar. She brings along her best friend Anita "Needy" Lesnicky (Amanda Seyfriend). After flirting with the "salty" lead singer Nikolai Wolf (Adam Brody aka Seth Cohen from the O.C.!), Jennifer ends up getting herself kidnapped and sacrificed to the devil. To keep herself hot and desirable, Jennifer needs to eat human flesh. She prefers boys but later tells her best friend that she "goes both ways." It's now up to Needy to save the day and her boyfriend Chip's life.

Written by Diablo Cody, Jennifer's Body is full of quirky one liners and made up words much like those that were enjoyed by all in her 2007 flick,  Juno. Another reminder of Juno was returning actor J.K. Simmons as a sympathetic teacher with a hook for a hand. The most enjoyable aspect of the movie was the music. With songs by Cobra Starship and Cute Is What We Aim For, we can also listen to great music while watching sleazy Megan Fox eat people!

Not your average movie about a hot cheerleader and her nerdy best friend, Jennifer's Body hit theaters last week. Staring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer's Body tells the story of a popular girl who is slighty more evil than the teenage girls of today's society.
