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: 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

this movie is a trip, the first time i saw it was wierd, but its a good movie. Not good enough to buy it though. You can get it cheaper at wal mart or something.


This movie isn't not as good as heathers (my favorite movie) but still funny. But this movie gets dark way too soon u never get to see liz with actual lines or get 2 know her just what people thought about her. But this movie was funny for it's time.

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.
