Ultimately, the star-power smoke screen withers, and you're left with a silly film, a couple of decent jokes, and an entirely too-predictable plot.

For Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters continues to cast one hell of a shadow. Shame - if he'd managed to resist the lure of big, shiny FX, this could have worked as a very black comedy...

Director Ivan Reitman is a good choice for this sort of thing - like Evolution, it's undeniably silly but extremely entertaining with it.

At one point, jealous Thurman tosses a live shark into Matt and Hannah's love nest. Unwittingly plunged into this farrago, the shark earns my sympathy.

Days after I saw Ivan Reitman's latest fusion of action fantasy and comedy, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fashion sense surrounding our female superheroes.

...Neither fun nor funny.

With such an amiable cast and lots of crisp dialogue, you can forgive the chinks in the armour.

[A] scrambled spoof/romantic comedy/farce (the movie's own secret identity is never truly revealed).

Soulless and dimwitted.

It's doubtful that yet another depiction of a psychotically possessive harpy is a step forward for women, even if she does possess super powers instead of a 'Play Misty for Me' knife.

...A movie that would rather tweak male paranoia than liberate a nerdette terrified of her powers.
July 27, 2006
...generally a fun (albeit entirely forgettable) piece of work.

Vile. Nasty. Crude. Base. Ugly. Everything that's bad about 21st-century gender relations can be found in Ivan Reitman's dopily noxious Super Ex.

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.

It doesn't help that Wilson is such a bland actor that it's like watching a battle of wits between Gore Vidal and Larry the Cable Guy.

I didn't think it was possible, but here's a movie that hates women even more than the current season of TV's Rescue Me.

The city's saviour is transformed too easily into a horrible person.
July 24, 2006
This is the kind of material that can only soar under the hand of a fully engaged filmmaker, not someone who is just punching the clock.
July 24, 2006
The split in My Super Ex-Girlfriend is an ugly one, separating the high-flying opening hour from its eventual crash-landing. For the underhanded villains, look no further than Reitman, writer Don Payne and a slew of superfluous special effects.
July 24, 2006
Veteran filmmaker Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Dave) almost pulls off this offbeat comic romance. But not quite.
