Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Hell hath no fury like a superwoman scorned.
When New York architect Matt Saunders dumps his new girlfriend 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.
Odd little comedy which doesn't know what it wants to be. Pitched at an adult audience for most of its running time, it is often hamstrung by trying to appeal to kids / teens.
It has some good jokes and employs a lot of talented people, but it doesn't quite hang together. It also feels more dated than it is.
This was my first super women movie, loved it in some parts with usual comedy bits, rest of the things are as good as other super hero movies... just watched for a time pass as it succeeded in entertaining..
I feel like the title of the film occurred before any notion of a story. Like the censored version of the Puddle of Mudd song "She Hates Me" the film features, any of the potential here is neutered.
Fun film which takes on the current Superhero fad and looks at it in a different light.
Don't expect much but is very likeable from the situations that are given to us due to the fact his girlfriend abuses her superpowers to make his life uncomfortable.
So bad and misogynistic (which is rather annoying when the main character is a female superhero).
Also, the fact that Uma Thurman can be in a masterpiece like Kill Bill but can also be is this kind of movie is rather astonishing.
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.

There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
