This sequel to the blockbuster stumbles out of the gate and never quite recovers, but still looks and sounds amazing in this 4K Ultra HD edition from Paramount.
With the grotesque looks, lame comedy and bland acting, these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles should probably slink back into their shells.
Jennifer Westfeldt’s Friend’s with Kids is a romantic comedy aimed squarely at adults, and while it is handled intelligently with witty and unexpected dialogue, its uneven tone keeps it from being a complete success.
Passion Play is a quirky, absurd, and passionless David Lynch imitation that is carried only by a surprisingly strong-ish performance from an easy-on-the-eyes Megan Fox.

Jennifer’s Body is neither scary enough nor gory enough to satisfy the most ardent slasher film fans, nor is it funny enough (on purpose, anyway) to fully qualify as a bona fide comedy/horror film, but the intelligent writing, unintentional camp and memorable one-liners mean the film has cult classic written all over it.
