More Info:
  • Kyle Smith

    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.

  • Angel Cohn

    Surprisingly entertaining, if less than original.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Betty Thomas, directing a script by TV veteran Jeff Lowell, seems uncertain whether to sympathize with her three heroines or with the title cad, but there's something mildly charming about this cheerful revenge comedy's lack of any straightforward moral agenda.

    What it does have is the laughs.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    A briskly-paced, refreshing kick in this season of draggy, two-hour-plus movies. The film is smarter and funnier than its trailers indicate, and, as a bonus, there are no superheroes, pirates or Wilson brothers to be found.

  • Nick Taylor

    Although mixing teen humor with sentiment will never be done as well as in "American Pie," John Tucker Must Die has just enough heart to entertain the "MySpace" set.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    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.

    Reasonably entertaining.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Every woman falls for the wrong guy at least once in her life. This week, it's Betty Thomas' turn.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Too cute by half, the high school comedy John Tucker Must Die is just so likable, so, um, cute - in that helpless-bunny-wabbit sort of way - that to diss it would be to admit being a heartless, cynical Bambi-killer.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ruthe Stein

    Something to see and occasionally even to laugh at.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The movie starts out cleverly enough but grows insipid as the girls' antics become more predictable.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The movie is as inconsequentially pleasant as its star, and far nicer than the title lets on, too.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Getting worked up about John Tucker Must Die is a bit like getting worked up about the taste of flan.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    The film lacks the nerve for any genuinely nasty fun or comic bite.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Penn Badgley is wildly charismatic in the role of John Tucker's younger brother. The entire picture could hang on his cheekbones alone. If only Mr. Metcalfe shared his talents.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Predictable developments are more or less redeemed by spirited execution and the pleasures of an able, good-looking cast.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Revenge movies often end with the message that vengeance is empty and futile, but it's never encouraging when revenge seems pointless from the start.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Lame and unconvincing teen comedy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Ferraro

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

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    A load of formulaic nonsense that should still turn a few young heads thanks to its fantasy plot and Jesse Metcalfe's chest

    Empire Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    John Tucker Must Die will undoubtedly fade into obscurity like so many silly and sentimental teen comedies before it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    But despite doing its best to jiggle, giggle and ogle its way into a niche somewhere between "Heathers" and "American Pie," it becomes just another forgettable pastiche of sight gags and pop-culture references.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    John Tucker Must Die is toothless. The jokes are obvious and unfunny, the storyline goes nowhere that's interesting or unexpected, and the only chemistry happens in a science lab.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Gregory Kirschling

    Astonishingly (and offensively), the witless ending comes down harder on the women than the cad.

    Whatever the target demographic was in the pre-production phase, now it's limited to sexually active 14-year-olds still retaking the sixth grade.
