My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006)



Critic Consensus: My Super Ex=Girlfriend is an only sporadically amusing spoof on the superhero genre that misses the mark with a nerd-turned-superwoman who embodies sexist clichés.

Critic Reviews for My Super Ex-Girlfriend

All Critics (137) | Top Critics (40)

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

A pleasant, harmless distraction that's plenty of fun if you want a lighter take on the world of caped crusaders

Lyles' Movie Files

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

Empire Magazine Australasia

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.

Full Review… | April 22, 2009

A breezy timepass entertainment with a little hint of bite.

Full Review… | August 26, 2007

at heart a deeply misogynistic view of female empowerment.

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?

Martin Sahlin

Super Reviewer

Inexplicably, I love this movie.
