Lame shock scenes, crucial plot points inserted without setups, and an unsuccessful attempt to exploit the camp value of some actors cast in minor parts are the least of the problems in this black comedy.

The producers of this film, which depicts teen-age girls as an assemblage of negative stereotypes, are female. Can females practice misogyny?
November 7, 2002
Only the soundtrack (the Donnas, Imperial Teen) and the irrepressible McGowan make it fractionally more bearable.
November 6, 2002
It's a tired lousy movie, a terrible twosome that deserves your heartfelt indifference.
March 22, 2002
Not quite a satire, not quite an homage, Jawbreaker falls into a third category: audaciously unoriginal.

Not particularly funny or trenchant.

Imitative of Heathers, but not nearly as witty or engaging.

Jawbreaker may promise a series of gleefully cheap thrills, but in the end all it delivers is a whole lot of bad taste.
January 1, 2000
Why sit through a lesser imitation, when you could just rent Heathers and those other movies for a far more enjoyable time?
January 1, 2000
A slick production of a lame script!

The worst movie I've seen in 1999.
January 1, 2000
One-liners tumble over one another, dulling their own impact. Plot points hurl from the screen with velocity, but fizzle from a lack of inspiration.
January 1, 2000
The lowest piece of garbage to hit screens in months.

Director Darren Stein is so busy throwing in pop icons and arch, self-conscious references to the high-school-is-hell subgenre that he forgets to craft an original black comedy.
