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
| Original Score: 8/10
A breezy timepass entertainment with a little hint of bite.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
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-
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
Director Ivan Reitman is a good choice for this sort of thing - like Evolution, it's undeniably silly but extremely entertaining with it.
With such an amiable cast and lots of crisp dialogue, you can forgive the chinks in the armour.
...generally a fun (albeit entirely forgettable) piece of work.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Like those superheroes who hide their costumes under unassuming street clothes in order to protect their true identities, this likewise masks its intriguing subtext under the surface charms of a romantic comedy.
A good effort by those involved, but I was hoping for more.
Uma Thurman is quite funny as she channels the anger from her 'Kill Bill' character and turns it into hilarious outbursts of superhero rage.
A movie with characters you like being allowed to like (despite their imperfections).
| Original Score: B-
I recommend this film to anyone who goes to movies to be entertained and come out happy and content without feeling that they had their intellect insulted by frat pack, Will Ferrell-level humor.
| Original Score: 7/10
This is your typical monster movie, and while there are a few funny scenes here and there Matt's too nice a guy for us to truly enjoy his discomfiture.
| Original Score: 2.6/5
[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.
My Super Ex-Girlfriend, simply by having a genuinely funny idea at its core, is one of the summer's better comedies, and director Ivan Reitman and the cast give it a straight-faced silliness.
Thurman is an ideally cast superhero and Wilson ably demonstrates the behavior of a guy who is involved way over his head.
| Original Score: 6/10
Directed by Ivan Reitman, it's a silly film with so-so CG effects. The main selling point is Thurman's inspired comedic work.
