Jawbreaker (1999)
Popular girls kidnap their best friend, popular girls accidentally kill their best friend, dorky girl sees them with the body, popular girls make over dorky girl, dorky girl gets too big for her britches - and so on and so forth. This movie is actually really fun. It's dark and twisted, but Rose McGowan is perfect as the devilish head snob Courtney, who seems completely unfazed that she's just killed her friend, accident or not. Julie Benz is okay as the sidekick, but I can't help but notice how many projects she's been involved with that involve death - first as the vampire Darla in Buffy and Angel, then in this, and now as serial killer Dexter's wife on Dexter. And one would never expect it, since she looks perfect to play the blonde popular high school girl.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
