Audience Reviews for John Tucker Must Die

  • Dec 02, 2011
    John Tucker Must Die is a worthless and pathetic comedy pointed directly at teenaged girls. I mean I would lie if I said the sheer stupidity didn't give me a few chuckles, but I am a sucker for some stuff like that. The actresses were just girls reading a script and nothing else. I hated this film and it has nothing to call itself besides a teen comedy.

    Another predictable teen comedy.

    I saw this today on Set Max as nothing else was coming on Television. A high-school chick-flick where 3 kids rope a "Cute" girl who hasn't been there when it comes to relationships to teach a serial dater a lesson on heartbreak on his birthday. I found "Jenny McCarthy" who plays "kate's" mom much hotter than all the 4 combined. Oh, the girls use a Mac while John Tucker uses Windows, don't know why! In the end, the female protagnoist takes pride in the fact that she has changed John Tucker's habit of lying and she is a self-proclaimed 'legend'.

    John Tucker Must Die was a terrible attempt at a comedy. The film has a bad cast, bad story and is simply awful. I thought the film was bad because it relied on clichés that we've seen from other films and the film simply fails to have any real laughs. The cast is comprised of your typical teen comedy film cast. As a whole, John Tucker Must Die fails to be entertaining and is actually quite boring. The film at times does make you chuckle a bit, but for the most part, there's never any real laugh out loud moments. The way the comedy is used is poorly done, and the film is not a memorable comedy and it just is a flawed film that is poorly done, and is a forgettable film once you've seen. The film could have been good, but the people who wrote the film don't know how to write witty, effective humor. John Tucker Must Die is simply a pointless, unfunny film that relies too much on clichés to create the humor, and it doesn't work. This film is a forgettable comedy, not worth watching. The jokes are bad, and this is the type of film that has been done many times before. Not to mention it's very predictable in its execution. A film that never does make you laugh or be entertained, John Tucker Must Die is simply a poorly conceived comedy with poorly thought out gags.
