Jack and Diane Reviews

Slant Magazine

The stop-motion is meant to show us that these girls are so in love that they're turning into monsters, but because the werewolf elements of the story are never explicitly addressed, their effect is confounding.

A girl-on-girl werewolf flick may sound similar to a plot line for the ultimate guilty pleasure horror flick, but in reality Jack and Diane may be just a little too John-Mellan-campy for most viewers' tastes.

Just plain icky - all toilets and blood and hair and bodily fluids.

Starts with an irresistibly trashy premise and proceeds to treat it with the po-faced pretentiousness of a film-school thesis.

Felt like someone misinterpreting the most extreme bits of Gregg Araki and Harmony Korine and turning it into an unwatchable film made marketable by putting its leading ladies into lesbian situations.

Devoid of energy and direction, 'J&D' settles for faux-naif posturing and arty color design.

A trudgingly self-serious affair that doesn't manage to be transporting on either its literal or conceptual levels.

There's no heft to these supernatural suggestions, just a sense of stale horror tropes being trotted out to embellish otherwise routine indie material.

Never really moves beyond or does much to develop...its sorta cool premise.

Tonally, the film swings between whispery romance and ominous horror as it explores the dark side of love and lust ...

Stilted line readings ... flatline whatever chemistry exists between these two young women.

Little movie, called Jack and Diane. Must have been sitting too long in the can. No, it doesn't have the Mellencamp song. And it gets everything thing else terribly wrong.

A well-constructed, well-intentioned but too deliberate attempt to provoke the unprovokable.

"Jack & Diane" offers a glaring example of a writer and director, Bradley Rust Gray, unable to trust in the simple strength of his material.

Throughout, the filmmaking is tentative, as though Gray is unsure whether he wants to make a fantasy-tinged romance or a hyper-sexualized blood-fest. (He winds up with neither.)

What could have been an appealing, offbeat romance is instead little more than Twilight for the arthouse crowd.

Let's see, monsters, internal organs with hair snaking through them, blood, teeth falling out after a kiss, vomiting, suicide over a broken heart. Some people call this romantic and charming. Pardon me while I gag.

Bradley Rust Gray's attempt to weave horror elements into a fairly conventional narrative yields diminishing returns in this overly stylized effort.

...teasing glimpses of horror merely pose as manifestations of an inner psychological turmoil that is nowhere else evident
