Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Poor Jennifer's Body mixes, matches, and crosses three popular genres: horror, comedy, and teen angst. Unfortunately, it fails at all of them - and "fails" might be too kind a term.
Roger EbertFull Review Good It's not art, it's not "Juno,” it's not "Girlfight,” for that matter, but as a movie about a flesh-eating cheerleader, it's better than it has to be.
USA TodayFull Review Average The world of disaffected teens — whether satirized and made extreme or mined for angst — is not easy to distill and capture. Jennifer's Body sags under the weight of its pretensions.

JENNIFER'S BODY is about small town high school student Jennifer (Megan Fox), who is possessed by a hungry demon. She transitions from being "high school evil” – gorgeous (and doesn't she know it), stuck up and ultra-attitudinal – to the real deal: evil/evil. The glittering beauty becomes a pale and sickly creature jonesing for a meaty snack, and guys who never stood a chance with the heartless babe, take on new luster in the light of Jennifer's insatiable appetite. Meanwhile, Jennifer's lifelong best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried), long relegated to living in Jennifer's shadow, must step-up to protect the town's young men, including her nerdy boyfriend Chip (Johnny Simmons).
