An air of self-congratulation hangs over the empty tank of gas called Jawbreaker, as if writer-director Darren Stein just can't wait to dazzle us with the gaudy visuals he's soldered onto a standard-issue black-comedy script.
The film's bright look and visual energy are much more liberating than the machinations of its teen queens.

The strongest dimensions of this self-conscious but centerless film are four sexy actresses parading in colorful costumes and Amy Vincent's radiant lensing, which makes the picture seem hipper than it is.
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.
It's not particularly funny or trenchant, and its portrayal of noxious high school cliques never amounts to more than was shown in "Heathers." [19 Feb 1999]
A synthetic yet shrill sadomasochistic cartoon.
Like the candy from which it gets its name, Jawbreaker is fun at the start, but can turn into a chore to complete.
Wickedly hilarious. [19 Feb 1999]
