John Tucker Must Die
Source: Catholic News Service
Lightweight comedy about a new girl at a high school (Brittany Snow) who, wanting to fit in, conspires with a spiteful trio of popular girls (Arielle Kebbel, Ashanti and Sophia Bush) to seek revenge against a girl-juggling jock (Jesse Metcalfe) after discovering that he'd been triple-timing them. Director Betty Thomas undermines the film's basically positive -- if muddled -- message about honesty and personal integrity by introducing sexually charged innuendo and situations into the get-even scheme, resulting in a movie that, though inappropriate for the obvious teen target, will be of little interest to older viewers. Some suggestive humor and sight gags, an uncritical view of premarital and teen sexual activity, and scattered crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
