A guilty pleasure
“Jawbreaker” has all the predictable, clichéd elements of past teen comedies, but I can’t deny the fact that I enjoyed it. I think part of its appeal is that it’s a darker comedy, like “Heathers”–though this movie certainly isn’t in the same league. Everybody in the cast gives fine performances. Rose McGowan’s is a little over-the-top, but I think it fit the tone of the movie. The running time is about 85 minutes, so it doesn’t go on long. There are plenty of funny moments that keep it entertaining. You can argue that the Karen Carpenter joke was too cruel, but that joke alone didn’t ruin the film for me. The ending is certainly a cop-out. There could’ve been a MUCH better pay-off! But despite the fact that “Jawbreaker” is undoubtedly a flawed film, it’s energetic and fun. There are much worse teen movies out there.
less than Heathers and too old for school
Liz is a nice girl and the most popular in her school. Her three friends accidentally kills her playing a birthday prank when she chokes on a jawbreaker. Mean girl Courtney (Rose McGowan) takes over the leadership. Marcie (Julie Benz) is willing to follow, but Julie (Rebecca Gayheart) is troubled with the death. When geeky Fern (Judy Greer) finds out by chance, she’s remade into a popular girl to keep her in line.
This has several problems. The most obvious are the girls in their mid 20’s, and the Heathers comparison. The girls are all gorgeous. Rose McGowan has a great mean girl persona. But the girls are so visibly too old for high school. It is extremely distracting. And the Heathers comparison doesn’t help. The writing and the dialog can’t stand up to the comparison. It doesn’t have the snappy dialog or the memorable lines. It isn’t as funny, and drifts into boring.
This movie excels in one thing, and that is the music. It’s fun and candy coated which fits the story perfectly. Sure the supermodel walk down the hall is great, but that’s a pittance. There’s not enough here to recommend this movie.
