A mixed bag, but at least it's interesting and almost never boring.

How can a director as savvy as Lee make so many errors of judgment regarding taste, tone, intention and dramatic structure?

... may be the worst movie of the year.

As visually electric as it is conceptually stupid.

A distillation of rhetoric that never gets properly shaped, compounded by various on-screen speeches that leave the audience feeling taught, talked down to and criticized.

maybe She Hate Me's title does make sense - as foreshadowing for the reaction it'll receive from real-world lesbians

Is Lee satirizing something? Is this all a metaphor for something? Or is it just a heavy-handed mess, full of non-sequiturs? My vote is for the latter.

A bizarre stinker . . . it's too bad, for the sake of Lee's career, that this mistake of a movie didn't spontaneously combust on the first reel.

"She Hate Me" is just as tongue-tied as its ridiculous title.

What could Spike Lee have been thinking?

Deeply offensive, staggeringly unfunny, pretentious and, at 140 minutes, about 135 minutes too long...

Spike Lee's bold voice is lost in a sea of snaky narrative threads that squeeze the plot and virtually choke it to death.

This film is so all over the place that Spike Lee drowns out his own argument and sabotages the story.

Com idéias interessantes o bastante para render três filmes, Spike Lee realiza um filme assustadoramente caótico e sem foco para um cineasta com sua experiência.

Ankle-chained to the ball of Jack's depression, She Hate Me lurches from cartoonish didacticism to glum slapstick.
