About the Movie

First, I guess you need to know something about them, "The beautiful ones. The flawless four. Everyone wanted to be them. You know 'em". They went to your school, too. First there's Courtney "Satan-in-heels" Shayne (McGowan) and her pawn, the dense but dangerous Marcie Fox (Benz), a legend in her own little mind. Then there's angelic Julie Freedman (Gayheart), doomed to be popular because of her pretty face, and lastly, the teen dream herself, Elizabeth Purr. When an ordinary kidnapping prank leaves the future prom queen dead (accidentally gagged with a jaw-breaker), a deadly sweet prank leads to cover-up makeover in this edgy and unpredictable comedy. But there will be no mercy as prom night arrives, bringing this spirited tale to its cruel tiara-dropping conclusion.

Rotten: A synthetic yet shrill sadomasochistic cartoon! – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: Imitative of Heathers, but not nearly as witty or engaging. – Emanuel Levy, Variety, Jun 13, 2011

Rotten: Jawbreaker may promise a series of gleefully cheap thrills, but in the end all it delivers is a whole lot of bad taste. – Mary Elizabeth Williams,, Nov 6, 2002

Great all around

This has an amazing plot, cast, and terrific acting. Rose McGowen plays an excellent "bad girl" and overall I was very happy with the way the film ended, tying up all loose ends. It's one of my favorites.

the best movie of all time!!!

I watched this amazing movie because my favorite actress, rose mcgowan is in it, and also because the trailer for the movie looked pretty good. i found out that this is actually an amazing movie, the best one that i have ever seen in my entire life, actually. it is definitely my new favorite movie. rose played an awesome courtney!!! keep up the great work, rose, and i hope to see you in other films in the future!

The ORIGINAL Mean Girls

My aunt showed me this movie recently. I loved it!

It is like Mean Girls, except with a better plot. It has elements of a teen movie, but it also deals with death.

There are many funny parts in this movie. There are also more serious scenes. It keeps you intrigued. There are no dull spots.

On a side note, Marilyn Manson also has a small non-speaking role. It is really funny when he comes on because of the song that starts playing. The Donnas are also featured in the movie.

If you are into teen movies, or teen dramas, this movie is for you.
