  • Like the candy from which it gets its name, Jawbreaker is fun at the start, but can turn into a chore to complete. show more

  • Jawbreaker breaks ground in one way. The movie is notably unpleasant, not just because it's morally offensive, but because it strives for this arch, artificial John Waters tone without any accompanying pay-off in wit. show more

  • A slick production of a lame script, which kills time for most of its middle half-hour. If anyone in the plot had the slightest intelligence, the story would implode. show more
