Hiding in My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a clever conceit that never gets to reveal itself fully.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend sets the cause of psychotic superheroines back about 30 years. The movie roils with more unexamined hostility towards women than a roomful of Taliban clerics.

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.

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

How can a movie with such talented performers and such an original concept seem so entirely like a re-tread? Help them Superman!

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

There's so much going on that the movie never explores the comic potential of Thurman's unique character. Does G-Girl go mental because she's a superhero, or was she always destined to be a bunny boiler? Does she like being super? And what are her powers?

at heart a deeply misogynistic view of female empowerment.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a romantic comedy from a stereotypically masculine perspective.

Has occasional spurts of laughter but is otherwise benign and dopey.

Uma Thurman does double duty as a New York neurotic, Jenny Johnson, and a secret superhero, G-Girl, in a shaky comedy directed by Ivan Reitman.

There are about 20 minutes worth of decent sketch comedy here, which means this one beats the summer's other Wilson brother comedy, You, Me and Dupree.

Cole Smithey

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.

The movie's too slapdash to keep its characters consistent, but this has its moments.

This is certainly not good news for My Super Ex-Girlfriend, a lame laugher whose anemic superpowers couldn't put a dent into a marshmallow with a rusty hammer.

a bland movie that isn't quite sure if it is a parody of romantic comedies, a parody of superhero movies or a parody of Uma Thurman.

Directed by Ivan Reitman, it's a silly film with so-so CG effects. The main selling point is Thurman's inspired comedic work.
