Movie Info

Three teenagers two-timed by a local lothario decide to turn the tables on him in this romantic comedy. John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) is the big man on campus at his high school -- he's the captain and star player of the basketball team, he's got money, he's good-looking and charming, and he can have any girl he wants. However, the latter attribute is about to get him in serious trouble when three different girls at his school -- Heather (Ashanti), Beth (Sophia Bush) and Carrie (Arielle Kebbel) -- discover they've all been dating John at the same time. Determined to bring down the campus ladykiller, the girls devise a plan -- they pick a cute but socially clumsy girl who is new at school, Kate (Brittany Snow), and give her a crash course in stealing John's heart. Once Kate has John wrapped around her little finger, she's supposed to drop him like a bad habit and give him a taste of what heartbreak is really like. However, it seems that the early stages of the plan work a little too well, and John and Kate end up falling for each other for real. John Tucker Must Die also stars Jenny McCarthy, Penn Badgley, and Dan Payne.

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.

Hilarious! A must-see for any girl who's boyfriend was going out with someone, or three other someones' for that matter. The cast of Brittany Snow, Ashanti, Sophia Bush, Arielle Kebbel, Jenny McCarthy, Jesse Metcalfe and Penn Badgley was just great. This is a great movie to watch with your girlfriends on a Friday or on a regular week day (:
