Jawbreaker

Jawbreaker

3 of Reagan High School's most popular girls pretend to kidnap their friend by shoving a jawbreaker into the victim's mouth to keep her from screaming. Their plan goes awry when the girl swallows the jawbreaker, choking to death. Now the leader of the pack will do anything to keep the accident a secret.

In the opening scene, we are introduced to four high school girls whom are blessed with beauty and charisma. They are known as the "Flawless Four" who are the most popular girls in Reagan High School in southern California. The clique consists of Courtney Shayne (Rose McGowan) known as Satan-in-heels; Marcie Fox (Julie Benz) known as 'Foxy'; Julie Freeman (Rebecca Gayheart); and Elizabeth Purr (Charlotte Ayanna), known as the "Princess Di of Reagan High." Of the four, Elizabeth Purr was the only one who was genuinely kind-hearted and loved by the entire school. Julie was "doomed to be popular because of 'that face' and because she was best friends with Elizabeth Purr". Cold-blooded queen bee Courtney and her airheaded friend, Marcie, demand respect through terror.However, Courtney, Marcie and Julie play a mindless prank on Liz the morning of her seventeenth birthday, by performing a fake kidnapping: They surprise Liz in bed, bind her with ropes (with Courtney ramming a jawbreaker candyball into her mouth to gag her) and cover it with duct tape. The girls trap Liz, dressed only in a shirt and panties, in the trunk of a car, as she struggles and squeals through her gag, and drive off. They plan to take the bound, gagged, and helpless girl to a restaurant and "stuff her face with pancakes". However, upon opening the trunk, they are greeted with the grisly sight of Liz dead, having choked to death by aspirating the jawbreaker into her larynx.Horrified, Julie wants to go to the police but Courtney forbids her. Instead, Courtney calls the school pretending to be Liz's mother and tells them Liz is ill and cannot attend school. To keep up appearances, Courtney, Marcie and Julie then go to school as though nothing had happened. When the principal sends school outcast Fern Mayo (Judy Greer) to deliver Liz's homework at the end of the day, she stumbles upon the three girls and Liz's mangled and decomposing body. Out of jealousy, Courtney fabricates a story that Liz died at the hands of a rapist, and plots to tarnish Liz's good reputation by spreading false rumors that she was actually a rebellious, promiscuous girl, and not the perfect angel she made herself out to be.Fern, who had admired Liz to the point of hero worship, is appalled and attempts to flee the house, but the girls easily catch her. To buy Fern's silence, Courtney accepts Fern into the clique, telling her to take Liz's place. Courtney and Marcie then give her a makeover, transforming her from plain and awkward to elegant and beautiful. Later in the school cafeteria, Courtney introduces Fern as the beautiful exchange student "Vylette." Julie, overwhelmed by guilt at her part in Liz's death, distances herself from the clique, only to be shunned and tormented by her former friends and becomes a new target for abuse throughout the school. Her only real friend during this time is her drama student boyfriend, Zack.Meanwhile, a police detective, Vera Cruz (Pam Grier) begins investigating Liz's death after her body was discovered by her parents who arrived home from a long vacation. With some cooperation from the wary principal Ms. Sherwood (Carol Kane), Detective Cruz interogates all of Liz's friends (Courtney, Marcie, and Julie included). All of them deny knowing anything about Liz's death. Fern/Vylette however comes across as suspicious due to her demeanor. But without any evidence, Cruz allows 'Vylette' to remain free.As Vylette's popularity soars, Julie watches in mute horror as Courtney spins a relentless web of lies, trickery and manipulation to cover up the murder and maintain her popularity at the school.A few days later, Julie learns from Detective Cruz (to her disgust) that after they'd returned Liz's corpse to her house, Courtney went out and seduced a stranger (Marilyn Manson) at a sleazy bar and had sex with him in Liz's bed, making it seem as though he had raped Liz.Meanwhile, Vylette becomes intoxicated with her newfound popularity, which has eclipsed Courtney's own. Realizing she has created a monster, Courtney threatens to reveal the truth about Vylette if she doesn't stop showing off, but Vylette vows she will reveal the whole truth about Liz's death if Courtney attempts to expose her.The next day, an infuriated Courtney and Marcie post enlarged yearbook photos of Fern Mayo all over the school with the message "Who is Vylette?" written on them, revealing Vylette's true identity. Fern is thoroughly humiliated by the entire school and once again reduced to an outcast. Feeling no remorse for the lives she has destroyed, Courtney casually attends the senior prom with her boyfriend, jock Dane Sanders (Ethan Erickson).Julie takes pity on Fern and forgives her for falling under Courtney's influence. Later that night as she sulks in her room, going through a bag of Liz's belongings that were given to her, Julie finds the recording card she was fiddling with when Courtney was faking Liz's death and discovers it has incidentally recorded Courtney's admission to the murder. Struck with an idea, Julie, Fern and Zack all hurry to the prom. Upon seeing them, Courtney, Marcie and a few of their lackeys call Julie and Fern names and try to embarrass them, but it backfires when the girls completely ignore their taunts and go on with their plan.Later on, as Dane and Courtney are announced as Prom King and Queen, Zack sneaks backstage and broadcasts the card message, "I killed Liz! I killed the teen dream! Deal with it!", over the sound system while Courtney is making her acceptance speech. Dane (seized with shock and disgust over the revelation) quickly abandons Courtney. Marcie also runs and hides to distance herself from Courtney. Horrified that her scheme has become unraveled, she races for the exit as the rest of the students pelt her with corsages and call her a murderer. Awaiting Courtney at the very end of the mob is Julie, who gleefully snaps a picture of her former friend's anguished face to immortalize the occasion. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

valerie p (fr) wrote: terrific movie, well worth the price of a ticket

john p (jp) wrote: This is a fantastic movie, especially to fans of David Lynch during the 90's (think Lost Highway). This is the kind of director that we need now because Lynch doesn't have too much time left. I highly recommend.

Xander K (kr) wrote: Probably too long for its own good, but still takes you on a fascinating ride of hero-worship and villain scapegoating surrounding a tragic set of events.

William W (us) wrote: Excellent and fair coverage of a tough subject. The rare doc that doesn't have a slanted POV but really just wants to get to the truth.

William F (mx) wrote: It was a feel good movie of some good folks risking their lives for Polish Jews.

Wesley B (us) wrote: You may have heard Nazis are bad and known about the Warsaw ghetto... and nothing here is necessarily new or illuminating in that regard. But the Zookeeper 's wife maintains a sure footing and quiet dignity treading familiar territory about the chaos of war and the work to subvert the Nazi war machine (it's part of a new generation of stories out of Eastern Europe, probably held back by the Cold War). None of the performances are astonishing - Chastain is fine but bland, and her accent wavers - but this is a solid, worthwhile effort.

Walter T (ru) wrote: From the Ashes should be required watching in Washington DC and in coal country. Surprisingly balanced, it paints a realistic picture of a world rapidly moving away from coal as an energy source and its devastating impact on jobs. The politics of coal dominates America and our ability to solve this has profound impact on literally millions of families directly or indirectly impacted by this industry. Go see it.

Walter R (au) wrote: Quite the puzzle if you go with it. Took me awhile to get it but once I did, very cool. The mood is very strange and always keeps you uncomfortable. My girl figured out ending before I did which pissed me off. Jena Malone is great. Not for all but very intriguing nonetheless. Cool locations too.

Vince A (mx) wrote: Very good documentary. It's frightening to see what a mob mentality, hero worship and obsession can do to a community. Happy Valley is filled with nut cases who spent more time making themselves and Joe Paterno into victims than actually caring about the real victims of child abuse. It's sickening.

Ursula L (br) wrote: This documentary really disturbed me. As if the crimes committed weren't bad enough, this whole view of the town where Joe Paterno and the football team were "victims" is shameful. The university and the town are complicit in my opinion, because if it wasn't for the reverence of football above all else, these people wouldn't have had their blinders on to not see a child molester among them. Well done documentary, but the topic left me feeling sick.

Tracy M (ca) wrote: Not many movies get you so emotionally vested and feeling the ups and downs of the characters. This movie needs to be out there for the masses to see. Not to just teaching about pledging but taking a stand when you know something is wrong. It has a lot of messages that can be taken through journey of life. It's easier to build strong children than repair broken men. F.D.

Tiago A (mx) wrote: I enjoyed this movie since the beggining. I enjoyed the acting and the fact that this was a movie made by black people. And please, don't judge them because of the color the the skin. This movie presents the nightmare living by millions of students trying to get on on college and can't or are affraid of the underground hazing. This movie represents a current problem about the colleges and needs to be watched like it.And for those who said this movie has no end: You did not understand a bit about it.

Tex S (it) wrote: The Zookeeper's Wife, movie review"The Zookeeper's Wife" tries to do too much. It's a resistance film at it's heart, but it was also a family drama, a war film, a psychological thriller, and more. None of the parts are played out well enough to be satisfying. For example, about half way through the film, we realize that the title character, Antonina Zabinski played by Jessica Chastain, is having a baby. We saw the married couple having sex, and then bam, she's having a kid. Another example is the husband, Jan Zabinski played Johan Heldenbergh is suddenly in armed resistance against the Germans. The film seems disjointed without enough lead up to these and other major plot elements in the film. The acting is fine, but it doesn't have enough gravitas for such a story. Chastain's accent fluctuates from flawless to not so perfect. To give her full credit, Chastain is an asset in most of the film. The way she holds the young animals shows genuine love for the beasts. Heldenbergh seems like he is phoning it in half the time; he doesn't embody the character. Even Daniel Brhl is mediocre as the sinister Lutz Heck, a German officer with a lust for Antonina and an affinity for animals. His performance is uneven and he is out of sorts. In the end, much of the problem is with the script. Some of the dialogue is terrible. Antonia's line "Maybe that's why I prefer animals to people. You can look into their eyes and know exactly what they think" is terrible. Certainly, the line is trying to show that she empathizes with animals, but it comes across as false and out of place. The way she treated the animals was enough for us to get the point. And besides, you can't know what an animal is thinking. That's stupid. While most of the script is competent, none of it stands out as spectacular or well written. However, the dialogue is not the worst part of the film. It's the cloying treacle they call a sound score. It's so light and lovely, but I don't need to be told how to feel. Silence would have served the film better. Harry Gregson-Williams did well with his score for The Martian, but here the music is an annoyance from the first note. More Chopin, please!?Rating: MatineeIt's a great story that could have been done better by sticking to one plot line: the refugees and their act of resistance. By trying to do too much, it was less of a film. Peace, Tex Shelters

Sue D (br) wrote: Excellent movie. Don't miss it.

Stuart P (br) wrote: An interesting documentary about blame, scapegoating and idol-worship.

Steven J (es) wrote: Easily one of the strangest and most confusing films I've ever seen, Bottom of the World is also a captivating and intriguing film. Most people will probably hate it, but for some reason I was fascinated by it...some scenes are very suspenseful and creepy, others are wonderfully strange and surreal. Nice performance by Jena Malone. Guy is ok.

Steve C (ca) wrote: Brutal and gutteral, but seriously lacking humor.The film ends with a cell phone call and an utterance that is unintelligible. A fatal failure.
