Jesse Metcalfe, Brittany Snow

Three popular high school girls discover that—Oh. My. God!—they're all being romanced by the same lying jock (Desperate Housewives' Metcalfe). Time to get even. But what if he's not quite the horndog he seems? The sassy John Tucker Must Die is a smart enough teen comedy, but its concerns (the prom, the big game) are too narrow to appeal to many beyond its intended audience. As for Metcalfe, he dexterously doffs his shirt early and often. (PG-13)
