John Tucker Must Die
A teen revenge story that the critics have labelled formuliac & sentimental. Empire says it's a mix of 'She’s All That', 'Mean Girls' and 'The Perfect Man'.

Teen heart-throb Jesse Metcalfe ('Desperate Housewives') plays the school jock: a stud, a basetball extraordinare, and also a serial cheater. After three ex-girlfriends (Ashanti, Bush, Kebbelrealise) realise his dirty cheating ways, they concoct a plan to get him back. They give the new girl in town, Kate (Snow), a make-over and coax her into hooking up with him in order to break his heart.

Reviews & comments

Typical but aesthetically pleasing

The teen movie genre has been slightly lacking in recent times and this lot of perky, pretty people cater for it's pubescent audience with a movie with a plot involving the usual elements of cliques, catfights, revenge and teen romance. Not surprising, it is as predictable as it is chock-full of eye candy.

The movie starts out cleverly enough but grows insipid as the girls' antics become more predictable...

Although mixing teen humor with sentiment will never be done as well as in "American Pie," John Tucker Must Die has just enough heart to entertain the "MySpace" set...

It's a predictable, cute teen flick without any real attitude or humour, and feels a lot longer than its short 87 minutes...

The performers are a bright bunch, especially Snow (even if she's no sane person’s idea of a wallflower), Metcalfe, who has the cocksure swagger of a young Travolta, and McCarthy, who infuses her few scenes with a haggard dignity masquerading as optimism...

Its storyline is very predictable and cliché but teen girls will no doubt have a good time with this movie anyway...

A load of formulaic nonsense that should still turn a few young heads thanks to its fantasy plot and Jesse Metcalfe's chest...
