All Critics (101) | Top Critics (33)

Not the worst of its kind, but few over the age of 14 will find it worth forking out for.

Succeeds in being passable romance comedy entertainment.

Cinema Crazed

Designed as an ultimate revenge fantasy "John Tucker Must Die" is a moderately funny teen comedy with a few flashes of bawdy humor.

Full Review… | April 22, 2009

Rarely has a title promised so much, and delivered so little. John Tucker Must Die is toothless, gormless, witless, and, worst of all, deathless.

Full Review… | June 13, 2007

A high-school revenge comedy that aims at a teen audience yet manages to be witty without being snarky or sophomoric.

Full Review… | February 7, 2007
Film Journal International

Betty Thomas's sloppy storytelling and comic incompetence can be forgiven but to portray young women as flighty airheads obsessed with boys over all else is downright offensive.

Audience Reviews for John Tucker Must Die

Similar plot to The Other Women, but in high school. Preferable. Silly, but fun and not a long running time, so doesn't outwear it's welcome. Light bit of froth with a like able teen cast.

Teen movie about a group of girls who gang up to teach their boyfriend a lesson for dating them all at the same time. Good cast. If you like Clueless and Mean Girls you will like this movie.
