A pleasant, harmless distraction that's plenty of fun if you want a lighter take on the world of caped crusaders
| Original Score: 6.5/10
Though not without its amusements, My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a high-concept studio pitch trying to pass itself off as an actual movie.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: C-
A breezy timepass entertainment with a little hint of bite.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: D+
Smoothly sends up romantic comedies and the superhero genre with such panache, it leaps into mid-summer as one of its best diversions.
| Original Score: A-
How can a movie with such talented performers and such an original concept seem so entirely like a re-tread? Help them Superman!
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Hop on the crazy train and enjoy the ride!
| Original Score: 4/5
The likable cast and generally inspired mayhem make for a pleasant diversion.
| Original Score: B
The good news is that My Super Ex-Girlfriend does actually end.
| Original Score: 1/5
Over the years, I remember thinking "What the heck was that?" after seeing several movies with, uh, quirky concepts.
| Original Score: .5/4
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
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.
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.
