When we have savvy, smart TV shows like Veronica Mars, which perfectly and cleverly capture the angst and tribulations of high school life, there's absolutely no need for empty-headed, vapid movies like this.

This is one of those films that manages to overcome the limitations of it's genre and become something a bit more.

The material is often trite, but director Thomas and her attractive cast make it seem fresh most of the time.

If we're going to abandon any sense of storytelling or intelligence, couldn't we at the very least do it with cheerful cardboard cutouts? Nice people can be dumb too.

very slight ... predictable

An out-of-touch and insincere teen product.

Cliche ridden and bland

Its storyline is very predictable and cliché but teen girls will no doubt have a good time with this movie anyway. Parents on the other hand (especially dads out there), who get stuck in theater with their kids, may want to bring a flask with them to help

Tepid teen revenge fantasy

The jokes are obvious and unfunny, the storyline goes nowhere that's interesting or unexpected, and the only chemistry happens in a science lab.

A slightly warped edge keeps us engaged with the simplistic characters and goofy situations.

John Tucker Must Die is trying to be Mean Girls with a more pointed purpose, but it's less fun than it sounds.
July 28, 2006
Teen comedies are notoriously predictable, and screenwriter Jeff Lowell isn't out to rock the genre boat, but his smartly written dialogue and the infectious charm of the cast, particularly Snow and Metcalfe, add up to a winning combination.
July 28, 2006
... a dreary female revenge timewaster that steals from so many and returns so little.
