GIVEN THAT ITS SCRIPT IS by http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1959505/awards - - ® WINNING SCREENWRITER , IT WAS http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0476201/ - , and ITS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35xxdqr3U5c - SUGGESTED IT at LEAST HAD a SENSE of HUMOR ABOUT ITSELF, WE HAD PLANNED to HOLD OFF on ADDING a FORUM for http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=385 - 'TILL the LAST MINUTE, JUST in CASE IT TURNED OUT NOT to be a LIKELY RAZZIE® CONTENDER...

THEN WE SAW an MTV BEHIND-the-SCENES SPECIAL on IT, WHICH SERVED to PROVE THAT, WHILE SHE MAY INDEED HAVE a SMOKIN' HOT BOD, STAR  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1083271/ - MAY WELL HAVE NOTHING MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN SMOKE BETWEEN HER EARS...

AND THEN, MORE DECISIVELY, the http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=3856&PN=1 - ® TERRITORY -- and ANY ADDITIONAL REVIEWS ARE UNLIKELY to ELEVATE IT OUT of "ROTTEN" TERRITORY at R.T.

IF YOU WISH to DEFEND THE FILM, YOU CERTAINLY MAY -- BUT OTHER THAN at the BOX OFFICE (WHERE WE EXPECTED IT WOULD DO BERRY WELL -- and DIDN'T!) WE EXPECT THIS to BE ONE BODY LIKELY to ARRIVE D.O.A. (DISSED ON ACCOUNT) COME RAZZIE® NOMINATIONS TIME...

I was kinda hoping for another good movie from Diablo Cody (cuz she's hot), and at first this didn't look that bad. But as the trailers trickled in...not so much. And that "I go both ways" joke? It's l-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-me!

Diablo Cody and the director of this both showed skill with "Juno" and "Girl Fight." But leave it to H-Wood to take emerging talent and water it down. Then throw in Fox, a studio with no talent to speak of.

Campy cult classic in the making? Yep. Megan Fox a lock for a Worst Actress nod? I'd hafta say...YEP!

I was thoroughly disappointed to see this movie's lukewarm reviews on RT. I mean let's face it: if Megan Fox is playing a demented cannibalistic psychopath in a slasher movie written by Diablo Cody, I (as well as most Juno fans) will be marking our calendars.

Megan Fox is really not a huge draw for me, I guess. Maybe it's just because she's not my type. But Diablo Cody is. If she were in it, I might be more interested.

I think most "Juno" fans would be marking their calenders for when "Juno 2" is set to be released, not for a slasher movie starring Megan Fox in the role she was born to play: a demonic, man-eating slut.

It's not really Megan Fox who had audiences buzzing, it's the fact that the
movie is written with the politically incorrect dialogue and snarky,
uncensored edge(which Juno was interdicted from in order to secure a
PG-13 rating) from Diablo Cody that had us Juno fans pumped. Just by
watching the preview, you can tell Diablo Cody had a blast writing the
material.

But shock value is what horror movies are all about, so of course there will be politically incorrect dialogue and an uncensored edge in a movie about a girl who is turned into a murderous demon. And critics can usually see right through that shock value and the camp to see that there's not much to the movie besides that.

You know, this will probably be taken off the ballots. It's at 39% at RT, which isn't BAD bad, while Love Happens is at 14%. Technically, this is an improvement over Megan Fox's performance in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

ANYTHING is an improvement from "Trannies 2". But 39%, while not "BAD bad", is by no means "good" either. You have to watch it solely for what it is, a campy horror movie.

Megan Fox is, from my point of view, one of the worst actresses in Hollywood. Sure, lots of guys who like her, but only for her body. I can definitely imagine how jealous the girlfriends of those guys must be of her...

Rumor has it, before he cast Fox in the first "Transformers" movie, Michael Bay invited her over for a "private screen test." The "screen test" had Fox washing Bay's car (no doubt a Humvee), which Bay filmed (and saved for himself?).

So not only do we have Bay to thank for ruining one of our favorite childhood memories with his two most recent bad movies, we also have him to thank for making this over-rated, talentless, should-be-in-porn-rather-than-mainstream-movies "actres s" famous.

I've heard that same rumor (more than once). And let's face it, she probably did more than "wash his car." It seems especially likely when you hear how much she bad mouths him and the crew, and he just sort of laughs, and insists he can't wait to shoot Trannies 3 with her.
Here's the problem with Trannies 3, before it's even been shot - it seems that studios are learning, BECAUSE of Trannies 2, that you're better off not screening your !@#$ty movie for critics, because it's only going to hurt your profit margins in the long run, and ticket-buyers don't care about quality anymore.

Oooh, and look, Idiocracy is on Comedy Central at this very moment -- How ironic!!

Thankfully, H-Wood has yet to make "Ass: The Movie", the biggest box office hit of all time and winner of 12 Oscars (such events happen in the distant future, according to "Idiocracy"). However, "Trannies 2" has proven that such events might happen sooner than "Idiocracy" claimed.

Actually I think it should go for worst movie or worst screenplay.
Definitely not for Megan. She was exactly how she had to be. I mean she had to bd sexy and meany and she did this well. She's not the best actress but she really doasn't expect for Razzie.

 Megan Fox is actually good in the role, and perfectly cast.  She has a
presence that fits here exactly as the character must have seemed on the page.  Trumping her is Amanda Seyfried, who does
tremendously underrated work here as the heroine of the film.
 
That's a part of awardscircuit review (oscar predictions).

Sorry, Anuss, but she's a shoe-in to get the nod, if not for this movie, then for "Trannies 2".

I saw this film and I agree, Fox was actually decent in here that shows her ability to act in different emotions. I liked the film and the script was great. I loved Diablo Cody's "made-up" words like salty and Jell-o and biff's and many, many, many, many more. It's not as great as Juno, but it's good enough.

This was made to be a campy movie with tongue in cheek humor. No one hires Megan Fox for her acting ability. Fox as a sex demon, that's the perfect use of her. If she does win Worst Actress, it won't be for this, it will be for "Bayformers 2", a role she got for washing Michael Bay's car.

If Michael Bay gave Megan Fox such a huge role for washing his car, it could also mean that Bay was desperate to find a cast, and/or something general (be it her name or body) sells to CGI pornographers, or the novelty of ill-gotten fame has gone above and beyond anything you've ever seen before. This takes cinema industry scandals to a whole new level!

Meh, if it's true, it's really less of a scandal than a lot of roles given to people who actually sleep with the producers. There's no way that stereotype isn't partially true.

Desperate? More like a perfect example that his filmmaking skills are as shallow and superficial as can be and he couldn't care less about quality filmmaking when he does care about is filming poorly rendered CGI, an overdose of explosions, and would-be porn stars like Fox.

Oh no, the mistake they made was casting Megan Fox. When a movie casts her as their lead actress, you KNOW it's not going to be a quality movie, just softcore porn at best.

I gotta agree with Vits on this one. There was really only one thing that the marketing campaign gave me that would've made me wanna see it. And after the fact, hearing that it had that Diablo Cody kinda dialogue, I was a little interested in that, but all that the ads on TV gave us were Megan Fox being sexy.

Although I may not always agree with Razzies,I do in general,and even if I hadn't seen the t2 movies for which she was nominated,I think most people believe she was bad,and she did this movie first,so...

Well mind you, Megan Fox made the biggest mistake in all of Hollywood ... she bit the hand that fed her. She called Michael Bay a hack (well, because he IS) and that "Bayformers 2" sucked (well, because it DID), and as a result, the media turned against her and said what pretty much everyone was already thinking: she sucks as an actress and is only good for softcore porn.

I just saw it,and gave it 4/10...or for Burn...I gave it ** or a D.

I'm the complete oposite of a macho man,but I think I should be one sometimes.So I'll say the lesbian kiss was worth it!

The movie was scary,but not enough.And it wasn't very funny.I blame completely on Karyn Kusama.Diablo Cody's scripts are very particular and require a good director too balance the dark and the humour.The movie deserved a nomination for "Worst Director",although Michael Bay still deserved to win.Also,this suffered from a "LORD OF THE RINGS effect":It had 3 endings in a row!

Megan Fox was average to bad in this movie,but so was Amanda Seyfried.I doubt they were uninspired,because that means they thought the movie would be at it's best a bad-reviewed box-office hit.It's reviews were mixed to bad,and the movie was only a hit internationally.Anyway,Megan's acting levels in this movie weren't bad enough to nominate her,but she had the same problem in http://www.razzies.com/forum/transformers-revenge-of-the-fallen_forum363.html - ,so maybe she kind of deserved a nomination,but not to win.I know she didn't actually win,but that's because Sandra Bullock said she'll show up and because she was going to win the Oscar.

Time for the penultimate entry in ABMMW, Jennifer's Body.
 
The good:
 
Amanda Seyfried: Seyfried is a decent actress and she does the best with her role here.
 
Karyn Kusama: There's a lot of greatly directed scenes in the movie. In particular, the scene where Jennifer is swimming in the water. You don't notice that she's there for a few seconds.
 
The music: The scene with Jennifer in the lake is helped by the throbbing metal music in the background.
 
The bad:
 
Megan Fox: Fox is a seriously bad actress. I could go into details, but you guys all know how bad of an actress is.
 
Half the lines: Half of the lines are unbearably pretentious. In particular, "move on dot org." Diablo Cody needs a beating for that line. The other half of the lines fall under awesomely bad.
 
The awesomely bad:
 
The other half of the lines: The lines that didn't piss me off too much were bad in the same way as Plan 9 is.
 
The gore: Watching Megan Fox eating people was more amusing than it should have been.
 
The kiss: The kiss is shamelessly done to try to get teen boys to come. That being said, it's still a hot scene.
 
A few monthes ago, I was discussing this movie's B.O. failure with some classmates. The reason I gave for the film's flopitude was that it banked solely on the hotness of Megan Fox and that teenagers that wanted to ogle Fox would just look on the internet. Not helping matters, nude shoots of Fox on the set appeared on the internet and the MPAA rating listed that there was no nudity. Grade: C+
 
Next-up: 2012!
