Adam Brody Thinks This Is The Reason Why 'Jennifer's Body' Failed At The Box Office

Talking with The Independent, Adam says the marketing was off key for what the film was really about.

“To have it receive such tepid reviews — and in a way, to be a punching bag — felt sh****,” he says, adding that it “wasn’t my movie, so I didn’t take the brunt of it, but it still felt a little unjust.”

Adam continued, “The film was a marketing person’s dream, and then to see them do that…Part Goosebumps, part Maxim. It’s not even anything she wears in the movie..The film was directed by a woman, starring two women, written by that year’s screenwriting Oscar winner [Diablo Cody]…and instead they’re like, ‘Let’s bury all of that. Don’t tell anyone that. This is for people who like Transformers.’”

Here’s the actual summary for Jennifer’s Body: When a demon takes possession of her, high-school hottie Jennifer (Fox) turns a hungry eye on guys who never stood a chance with her before. While evil Jennifer satisfies her appetite for human flesh with the school’s male population, her nerdy friend, Needy (Seyfried), learns what’s happening and vows to put an end to the carnage.

If you missed it, Megan recently opened up about a sequel to the movie.
