Watching it is like listening in on a heated debate amongst five people about various issues where all of them are talking at once and no one is stopping for a breath.

Using sex so amusingly, Lee makes satire sexy.

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.

The shards of this film have more audacity and intelligence than most of what is out there and its failures are more interesting to ponder than most films' successes.

A reminder that Spike Lee is one of our great American filmmakers, unafraid to address, directly and artfully, contemporary issues in a context of national history.

Within its messy framework there's a lot to like about She Hate Me.

Richard James Havis
Film Journal International

Shot in a fast 26 days, the film has an off-the-cuff feel which makes up in enthusiasm what it lacks in polish.

She Hate Me invites anger and analysis about the stereotypes it appears to celebrate; a film that attacked those stereotypes would inspire yawns.

Fun to watch and fun to think about later; it's chockful of provocative statements about corporate morality, sexual hypocrisy and what's wrong about both today.

This intensely topical satire tackles a wide range of important issues, from corporate whistle-blowing to the toll sexual license takes on stable family structures.

May not be subtle or disciplined, but it is funny as hell.

When it comes to social issues, Lee is fiercely, admirably activist, but when it comes to sex, he plays into stereotypes and myths that are all the more easily reinforced because they occur in a raucously comic context.

More often than not, the sheer originality and ambition of the project carry pic, which is further bolstered by its superb ensemble cast.
