Using sex so amusingly, Lee makes satire sexy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

If Lee had focused, the film might have been a great one.

If you're truly adventurous in your movie-going and fed up with movies that play by the numbers, play it safe and come with audience-fawning reassurances, then She Hate Me just might be the harsh cinematic tonic you crave.

[Lee's] most muddled message movie to date.

A misshapen and sometimes sorry affair that aims for satire, without always being clear about what it's attempting to satirize.

There's something in here to offend humans of any background or predilection, all of it unleavened by the humor or storytelling skill that might make it halfway palatable.

Someone needs to show Lee how to draw a straight line. He remains a vital and distinctive stylist, but as a storyteller he flies from one tangent to the next, as if he is so outraged all he can do is sputter.
| Original Score: 2/4
Lance Goldenberg
Weekly Planet (Tampa, FL)
September 2, 2004
...a movie that spews so much random, senseless, undigested matter that it seems more like projectile vomiting than filmmaking.

Less a joint than a high-rise built on a wobbly foundation.

Lee presumably had two ideas, one an exposť of pharmaceutical greed, the other a sex comedy: then he decided that neither one would make a film in itself and came up with the lame idea of combining them.

As visually electric as it is conceptually stupid.

Two movies mashed together.

Spike Lee's She Hate Me is about as awful as a film can be without being the ultimate awful, which is boring.

Lee seems to have no idea where he wants this satire to go.

A turn-off.

Scattered, clumsily ambitious, sexist, amateurish and just plain dumb, She Hate Me is a bad film, most likely the worst film Spike Lee has ever made.

Washington Post

Might qualify as the most misguided, ill-conceived and lamentable film of [Lee's] career.

Nothing in the film rings remotely true.

Detroit Free Press

It's not only unfathomable and borderline offensive, it's never-ending, leaving its bewildered and battered audience in the dark for well over two hours.
