“I don’t know what happened [with "Jennifer's Body"], and I don’t know if anything could have changed anything, or if that was the path it was going down no matter what. I’m happy people are finding it on cable or wherever they’re finding it. But I do think it should win a Razzie for Worst Ad Campaign Ever. Seriously. They couldn’t have done a worse poster or trailer if that’s what they f**king set out to do. It was such a good opportunity for a cool trailer or poster, and it was like a Goosebumps, R.L. Stine poster.”

Megan Fox‘s “Jennifer’s Body” came out last weekend, bringing writer Diablo Cody back into the spotlight we left her in, covered in rotten tomatoes from irate “Juno” haters. Sure, there is “The United States of Tara,” but Toni Collette won that Emmy for a reason: She’s working with so little. But so far, there’s been tentative praise for the horror/comedy “Jennifer’s Body,” where Cody’s quirky dialogue fits right in amongst the bloodshed. Think “Heathers” meets “Rosemary’s Angry Teenage Daughter.”

TGIF ladies! Time to unwind from the hectic work week with a
bottle glass of wine and some “me” time. And what better way to do that than to disappear into a movie theater? This week your every fantasy can be realized, whether it involves inventing elaborate machines like in “Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs,” going cannibalistic on hotties in “Jennifer’s Body,” being a super spy like “The Informant!” or just falling in love because, apparently, “Love Happens,” though I have my doubts about that statement.

Starring Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Amy Sedaris
Directed by Karyn Kusama (“Girlfight”)
Written by Diablo Cody
Please, please, please don’t read other movie reviews of “Jennifer’s Body.” I can tell you what the 50-year-old white men who write them are going to say:
Megan Fox can’t act.
Diablo Cody‘s dialogue sounds like “Juno”!
It’s a horror movie but it’s not that scary.
Nice kissing scene!
Good soundtrack, though.
Very original, guys! Good job. If you want the real scoop on “Jennifer’s Body,” read on … Keep reading »
In our exclusive, much-talked-about interview with screenwriter Diablo Cody
, Cody discussed a buzz-generating scene in her latest flick, “Jennifer’s Body,” in which Megan Fox
and Amanda Seyfried
make out. “They’re beautiful girls, the scene is hot — I’m not afraid to say that,” she asserted. So, is it really hot or not? Here’s the video evidence, so you can judge for yourself. “I know when I was a teenaged girl,” Cody says, “the friendships that I had with other girls were almost romantic, they were so intense.” Apparently, this is only the beginning of the scene, but it’s pretty steamy.

Megan Fox channels … Angelina Jolie? Dita Von Teese? The ghost of a bygone pinup? … at the Toronto International Film Festival world premiere of “Jennifer’s Body.” [Toronto, 9/10/09] Keep reading »
We’re lusty Diablo Cody fans at The Frisky. “Juno,” the TV show “The United States Of Tara,” her my-life-as-a-stripper-memoir, Candy Girl—we love it, love it, love it.
So I hope I didn’t come off too much like a nerdy fangirl when I called her up to talk about her new movie, “Jennifer’s Body,” a horror flick which stars Megan Fox as a possessed high school girl who eats her male classmates. The Divine Miss Diablo was everything I hoped for and more—hey, the coolest girl in Hollywood even apologized for her “verbal diarrhea” when she interrupted me once.
Click through for my convo with Diablo Cody about why she thinks Megan Fox is “eccentric,” how she wants to host a show like “The View” with Courtney Love, and why therapy (plus, a ban on reading blogs) has made Hollywood bearable for her. Oh! And why the kiss in “Jennifer’s Body” between Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried was never meant to be “gratuitous.” Keep reading »
“Jennifer’s Body,” a horror flick starring Megan Fox and written by Diablo Cody, is out September 19, which means it’s time for another article postulating: “Why Do Women Like Horror Movies?”
Nice try, Entertainment Weekly, but, no, us girls don’t like horror flicks for the “strong female leads,” whomever those might be. Or because we can cuddle with a man during the cover-your-eyes parts.
No, I love horror movies because they make me feel bad-ass, like I’m “one of the boys,” so to speak. It takes a strong stomach to sit through two hours of shocks, jolts, and adrenal surges, and not every cream puff can hack it. I might paint my nails baby girl pink and sleep with a teddy bear sometimes. But I saw the zombie flick “Quarantine” in theaters twice, and my boyfriend, who says scary movies keep him up at night, wouldn’t dare watch it once. Keep reading »
Screenwriter Diablo Cody’s latest endeavor, following “Juno,” is a decidedly more bloody affair. The horror flick, “Jennifer’s Body,” stars Megan Fox (groan), a guyliner-wearing Adam Brody (swoon!), and a typically wholesome Amanda Seyfried, and tells to story of a murderous high school hottie. Jennifer apparently has a thing for killing dudes, so I suppose there’s some sort of a girl power message going on. I’m a Megan Fox hater, but even I might put aside my distaste and see this flick — it looks hilariously awesome. NSFW (language issues) trailer, after the jump! Keep reading »
