My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Hell hath no fury like a superwoman scorned.
When a regular New York building designer guy Matt Saunders dumps Jenny Johnson - a smart, sexy and reluctant superhero known as G-Girl - she uses her powers to make his life a living hell!
The downside to the superhero phenomenon, which a super-geek like myself loves, is that all of Hollywood wants a piece of it. So somebody in an LA office turns to another guy in an LA office and says "let's make a movie about a superchick who gets dumped and is all pissy". Yay. Wonderful. The only reason it didn't utterly suck was Uma Thurman and Anna Faris breathing life into weak and uneven characters. The motivations and moods of these characters are all over the place. The script is such a mess.
On the upside Uma throws a live shark into Anna Faris' bed. You don't get to see that too often. Thumbs in the middle.
just finding out this was directed by Ivan Reitman has actually caused me to dislike this movie even more, and it was already approaching Scary Movie-level territory
Luke Wilson behaves reasonably enough in breaking off a relationship and has his life ruined by his ex: a super-powered Uma Thurman. Thurman's G-Girl is just completely crazy and nowhere near sympathetic enough to make this work, as the scheming against her by Wilson and super-villain Eddie Izzard is completely justified.
Pirmā filma, kuru noskatījos jau studenta statusā pēc lekcijām. Laikam biju ļoti pārguris, ja reiz tieši uz šo krita izvēle. Brīžiem gan kļuva tik apsurdi, ka pat palika interesanti un jautri.
This was randomly on TV and it was so stupid I loved it.
It gets one star because Uma Thurman throws a great white shark into Luke Wilson's bed. Other than that it's pretty terrible, which is a shame because the cast is kind of decent.
I like the premise - guy dates girl, guy dumps girl. It just happens that she is a superhero and she sets out to make his life a living hell.
I don't like the execution - overly cheesy, overly romantic and full of dodgy acting.
My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a terrible film with a unique idea that could've been terrific. I feel that the film could have been much better if there was better talent involved. The cast didn't do anything for me, and I felt that jokes were stale, and most of the time, unfunny. The concept of the story is interesting, but the actors here are mediocre and don't do anything unique. I laughed a few times, but once the film was over, I felt like I wasted my time overall. Ivan Reitman has had a great career, but with this film, it makes it to his forgettable films list. There's not much going on here, except for bad acting and forced jokes…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It has Eddie Izzard, I guess that was the best thing for me in this movie. The premise was interesting but it turns out to be boring and predictable. Yeah, this kind of movies are predictable but still...
