Jennifers body review.

I finally got around to watching this film. Is it appropriate for a young audience? No. There is a lot of sexual stuff, language, and plenty of gore. I haven't seen the unrated version, but I feel this film could of been close to an NC-17 movie. Otherwise, I'd recommend this to an older audience.
