Jack and Diane, two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane's charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack's tough skinned heart. But when Jack discovers that Diane is moving she pushes her away. Unable to grasp her new feelings, Diane's emotions begin to cause unexplainable violent changes to her body. Through these awkward and insecure feelings, the two girls must struggle to turn their first love into an enduring one. -- (C) Magnolia

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""The Man With the Iron Fists" being a fairly satisfying slab of cinematic mayhem, particularly if seen in under conditions like the ones I describe from my younger days."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"Throughout, the filmmaking is tentative, as though Gray is unsure whether he wants to make a fantasy-tinged romance or a hyper-sexualized blood-fest. (He winds up with neither.)"
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Good direction is hobbled by inexplicable flashes of horror, which add nothing to the story and stick out like clumsy art-movie affectations."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"It stinks worse than rotten fish."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...teasing glimpses of horror merely pose as manifestations of an inner psychological turmoil that is nowhere else evident"
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Devoid of energy and direction, 'J&D' settles for faux-naif posturing and arty color design."
‑ Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
""Jack & Diane" offers a glaring example of a writer and director, Bradley Rust Gray, unable to trust in the simple strength of his material."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Little movie, called Jack and Diane. Must have been sitting too long in the can. No, it doesn't have the Mellencamp song. And it gets everything thing else terribly wrong."
‑ Dan Lybarger, KC Active
"Just plain icky - all toilets and blood and hair and bodily fluids."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"What could have been an appealing, offbeat romance is instead little more than Twilight for the arthouse crowd."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Tonally, the film swings between whispery romance and ominous horror as it explores the dark side of love and lust ..."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Felt like someone misinterpreting the most extreme bits of Gregg Araki and Harmony Korine and turning it into an unwatchable film made marketable by putting its leading ladies into lesbian situations."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"Let's see, monsters, internal organs with hair snaking through them, blood, teeth falling out after a kiss, vomiting, suicide over a broken heart. Some people call this romantic and charming. Pardon me while I gag."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Never really moves beyond or does much to develop...its sorta cool premise."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"A girl-on-girl werewolf flick may sound similar to a plot line for the ultimate guilty pleasure horror flick, but in reality Jack and Diane may be just a little too John-Mellan-campy for most viewers' tastes."
‑ Caitlin Colford, Paste Magazine
