save yourself some time and don't watch this movie. Unless your a 6th grade girl who is "interested" in this kind of garbage. if you liked this movie, you should also check out Bio-Dome, and Gigli.

This movie was clearly made for 12-year-old girls, or high school students in the remedial classes. It didn't make me laugh once or hold my attention.

A curious measurement of this failed romcom-with-deeper-aspirations' ineptitude is that although its female lead is completely miscast, at the end of the day this movie still proves itself to be completely unworthy of her. Any actress A curious measurement of this failed romcom-with-deeper-aspirations' ineptitude is that although its female lead is completely miscast, at the end of the day this movie still proves itself to be completely unworthy of her. Any actress who looks and sounds so much like she could pass for Sarah Michelle Gellar's little sister has no business playing the class wallflower, but Brittany Snow is nevertheless so likable and appealing as the girl who inspires and is the key player in a revenge plot against a three-timing jock (Jesse Metcalfe) that she completely transcends her material, which is admittedly not a Herculean task. No, the movie doesn't have to be a pitch-black gem like Heathers in order to work on its own level, but would merely being one-tenth as good as Mean Girls, a movie that really had the courage of its convictions, have been too much to ask? Leaving aside for a moment the fact that the movie's only good gag (involving thong underwear) was in the preview (where it was much better edited) and that it features the cheesiest-looking high school I've ever seen in a release that didn't go straight to video, and that JENNY McCARTHY (!!) is called upon to deliver the Author's Message, John Tucker wimps out at every turn:it has the spine of the title characters of Snakes on a Plane and the balls of an overly progressive school that completely axed its P. E. program. The frequently capable Betty Thomas (The Brady Bunch Movie, Private Parts) substitutes real comic bite with stupidly cruel jokes about maimed chem-lab partners and heartbroken waitresses, and wraps the whole sorry mess up with a let's-get-everybody-together-and-preach-at-them finale reminiscent of 1987's Can't Buy Me love, except in that case it at least came off as sincere and heartfelt while this is just...desperate. Speaking of which, if you're a 15-year-old girl (or maybe a gay man) whose main rationale for seeing this is to watch Metcalfe with his shirt off, why not just rent out and rewatch the entire first season of Desperate Housewives on DVD? Even at 16 hours plus, trust me...it'll seem shorter. Expand

This movie was horrible. About a no-good guy who cheats on girls. Then they get him back. Predictable, obvious, not funny in the least bit! This movie was made for high school guys to envy Tucker. Absolutely horrible! If I ever see the director I

Bottom Line: This film is dumb. D-U-M-B, dumb.

There are three aspects to a comedy that should immediately tell you itâ

'John Tucker Must Die' is a laugh-free comedy with a ridiculous plot, and mixed morals that it tries to show.

The movie's plot mainly focuses on a hot-shot high school student and popular basketball player named John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) who starts going out with multiple girls at once. These many girls then find out about each other and begin to get jealous, that is, until they meet Kate Spencer (Brittany Snow) who pretty much gives them the idea to get even. All this popular guy did was go out with multiple girls and broke it off with them...he's unlikable as it is, all they want to do is humiliate him to the point where he gets it, and pretty much when the audience gets it.

There is absolutely no comedy from then on...while the acting from most of the young cast is better than expected, the screenplay is absolutely atrocious, and the representation of its principal cast is more humiliating than what the girls do to the John Tucker character.

I could go on and on about why I loathed this movie so much, it's a movie I've only seen once, and I seriously do not plan on seeing it again. Perhaps writer Jeff Lowell would have moved on to do better things...
