Vengeful trio's efforts to kiss `John Tucker' goodbye earn laughs

Review B-

July 28, 2006|By CHRIS KALTENBACH | CHRIS KALTENBACH,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

We should all have it as bad as John Tucker, a high-school BMOC (or whatever they call them nowadays) who always gets the girl, always sinks the winning basket and is, by acclamation, the coolest guy on the planet.

But as Spider-Man has learned, with great power comes great responsibility. John Tucker has great power, but of late, he's been misusing it. Why, the cad, he's been dating three girls at once. And so, as our title suggests, John Tucker must die.

John Tucker Must Die (20th Century Fox) Starring Brittany Snow, Jesse Metcalfe. Directed by Betty Thomas. Rated PG-13. Time 90 minutes.
