Jennifer's BodyJennifer's Body is a 2009 teen slasher film starring Megan Fox. Since the film does have some tongue-in-cheek moments, we were hoping the blooper reel might be better than most of the fare presented in this slideshow. In fact, the outtakes start out strong: Actors fumbling lines in funny ways during tense scenes. That should be 90-100% of any blooper reel, frankly: Tense scenes broken up by bad delivery. Then, however, it utterly confuses us by intermingling normal clips of the movie with bloopers (and actors laughing at some joke we weren't privvy to). Rather than return to the bloopers, it then becomes almost exclusively 2-second clips of the real film with no outtakes. Why does this happen in so many horror blooper reels? We were really digging the blooper reel, then it became a movie clip music video! What experience are we supposed to be having when watching these normal quick-clips? "Oh, I remember that part of the movie...where that guy was walking...that certainly was a part of this movie!"
