    A slumber-party classic that belongs on the same shelf as "Bring It On" and "10 Things I Hate About You." This high-school comedy should do for its 20-year-old star, Brittany Snow, what those movies did for Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles.
  2. What it does have is the laughs.
  3. 60
    The performers are a bright bunch, especially Snow (even if she's no sane person’s idea of a wallflower), Metcalfe, who has the cocksure swagger of a young Travolta, and McCarthy, who infuses her few scenes with a haggard dignity masquerading as optimism.

    Predictable developments are more or less redeemed by spirited execution and the pleasures of an able, good-looking cast.
  5. Getting worked up about John Tucker Must Die is a bit like getting worked up about the taste of flan.

    Its storyline is very predictable and cliché but teen girls will no doubt have a good time with this movie anyway.

    Really good movie with a lot of comedy but that wasn't the only good part of the movie. I also really liked the ending, definitely not what you'd expect. Expand

    Frickin' Hilarious. Sophia Bush is superhot...and funny too! Who knew that the former Mrs. Chad Michael Murray was actually talented? I know I didn't until this movie! If you love 80s teen comedies...than JTMD is the movie for you. If you hate them, then go see something else. Expand

    There are definitely some laughs to be found here. Nothing about this stands out, but if you're a sucker for movies like Mean Girls, Clueless, or teen comedies in general this should be worth your while in the theater or on video. Expand

    what is it with these American high school movies, that they try and have some 'big' moral at the end of them, which is barely a moral, don't lie to girls to get them into bed?' are American teenagers really this stupid? if i was an American teenager id feel pretty ashamed that this sort of trash is being constantly thrown at me. CLUELESS is a classic, as it mocks stupidity but since then we get one after another of this unintelligent rubbish, where the kids are actually portrayed as real American teenagers. It must be true, Americans really do have a terrible education system. 4 for being entertaining. but for god sake stop treating kids like morons. Collapse

    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. Expand
