Movie Review: Jonah Hex (June, 2010)

Possible spoilers ahead: Amanda Seyfried plays Anita “Needy”, the nerdy, plain jane best friend of Jennifer (Megan Fox), the popular beautiful girl of the school. One night, Jennifer implores Needy to join her at Melody Lane, the only local club in their small town to watch the band “Low Shoulder”.
