Movie Info

A regular guy finds out just how hard breaking up can truly be when attempting to call it quits with a clingy female crime fighter who doesn't want to let love die in director Ivan Reitman's super-powered romantic comedy. Matt Saunders (Luke Wilson) was looking for love when he first met pretty brunette Jenny Johnson (Uma Thurman), and at the time it seemed as if he may had finally actually found it. Jenny isn't just your typical girl, though, because despite her outwardly normal appearance she

At one point, jealous Thurman tosses a live shark into Matt and Hannah's love nest. Unwittingly plunged into this farrago, the shark earns my sympathy.

...A movie that would rather tweak male paranoia than liberate a nerdette terrified of her powers.

The Ivan Reitman-directed comedy manages to sap the charm from everyone in its cast, all of whom have shone quite brightly in other settings.

The fusion of effects-fueled action fantasy with comedy worked well for director Ivan Reitman 22 years ago in Ghostbusters and, less so, five years ago in Evolution. But, it fails to save his latest, My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

There's a funny idea here, but you might not know it from Don Payne's script, or, for that matter, from Ms. Thurman's performance.

[Ivan Reitman's] funniest movie since Ghostbusters, and a riff on superhero mythology that plays like a mashup of Bewitched (the TV show, not the movie), The Breakup and Fatal Attraction.

Though not without its amusements, My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a high-concept studio pitch trying to pass itself off as an actual movie.

What probably should have been an R-rated movie, ala "The 40 Year-Old Virgin," comes off as a half-hearted attempt at poking laughs with unlikable characters.

at heart a deeply misogynistic view of female empowerment.

The funniest parts of the script, like its characters' casual acceptance of a comic-book reality, are so subdued that they can be missed entirely.

It teetered on the edge of totally sucking, but in the end, it actually pulled everything off.

Even if it falls slightly short of super, Ex-Girlfriend is a film that's well worth having around.

A one joke film that runs its comedic course in about thirty minutes.

Smoothly sends up romantic comedies and the superhero genre with such panache, it leaps into mid-summer as one of its best diversions.

Over the years, I remember thinking "What the heck was that?" after seeing several movies with, uh, quirky concepts.

Ultimately, the star-power smoke screen withers, and you're left with a silly film, a couple of decent jokes, and an entirely too-predictable plot.

For Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters continues to cast one hell of a shadow. Shame - if he'd managed to resist the lure of big, shiny FX, this could have worked as a very black comedy...

Director Ivan Reitman is a good choice for this sort of thing - like Evolution, it's undeniably silly but extremely entertaining with it.

Days after I saw Ivan Reitman's latest fusion of action fantasy and comedy, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fashion sense surrounding our female superheroes.

Audience Reviews for My Super Ex-Girlfriend

A wee bit of fun, a guilty pleasure, reversing the traditional superhero dynamic: what if a woman had the superpowers? In this film, played for yuck-yuck-yuck-yuck-yucks, naturally she' d have to be, er, you know, a little, er, difficult, yah?
So what if its a one joke premise? The ensemble has some fun with it, with Luke Wilson as Lois Lane, Rainn Wilson as Jimmy Olsen, and Eddie Izzard as Lex Luthor.
And of course, me always liking some Uma Thurman and Anna Faris.
Its better than it sounds.

Welll this certanly stinks. It's just not okay. Nothing bad agains Luke or Uma. They're both allright. But who can perform under these conditions?

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 that aren't funny most of time. I love comedies, but My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a failed attempt at creating something very funny. Instead My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a disappointment and is a film thats easily forgettable. There's nothing going on in this film, and the end result is pretty pointless. A comedy that simply doesn't work, My Super Ex-Girlfriend is simply a bad film that you realize could have been better with a better cast and a better script. The idea is good, but theres nothing really good here to be entertained. A pointless, boring and most of the time, unfunny film.
