July 21, 2006
My Super Ex-Girlfriend dispels any doubt that the philosophy of high concept -- in which a film's entire content can be contained in the title or one brief phase, a la Snakes on a Plane -- is back in vogue.
July 21, 2006
Hiding in My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a clever conceit that never gets to reveal itself fully.
July 21, 2006
The movie is a dude's one-way fantasy tinged with an element of fear. It's unfortunate that the premise falls so comfortably along trite gender lines.
July 21, 2006
The real heavy lifting (both literal and figurative) is left to Thurman, who commits to the craziness with gusto.
July 20, 2006
Girlfriend skewers both superhero films and romantic comedies. And it does so with surprising deftness; Girlfriend is not only the funniest film of summer; it may be the best superhero film since Spider-Man.
July 20, 2006
The movie's too slapdash to keep its characters consistent, but this has its moments.
July 20, 2006
Two lessons learned: Dump a superheroine at your own risk. And animatronic sharks sure have come a long way since the days of Jaws.
July 20, 2006
For a movie about an unstable superhero who dresses like Carrie Bradshaw after a gamma zap, Ex-Girlfriend is cleverly attuned to the real-life nadirs of big-city psychosexual dynamics.
July 20, 2006
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.
July 20, 2006
Wilson does his callow good-guy routine (if you close your eyes you'd swear he was his brother, Owen) and Thurman looks as if she'd rather be stalking prey in Kill Bill.
July 20, 2006
If anything, it's too airy and tends to be forgotten as soon as the lights go up. But it's certainly pleasant enough while it's on.
July 20, 2006
The two starring performances are spot on. Wilson gets the tone that screenwriter Don Payne so expertly evokes. Thurman is beautiful, fearless and perfectly believable as a superhero.
July 20, 2006
If you're going for plot, My Super Ex-Girlfriend will disappoint, but if you're going for a light look at aspects of the superhero experience that most 'serious' genre entries ignore, the film delivers.
July 20, 2006
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.
July 20, 2006
Everything about My Super Ex-Girlfriend feels clumsy and cut-rate.
July 20, 2006
Mostly, MSEG is one of those movies that make you ask why: Why was it made? Why did Uma Thurman waste her time? And, most important, why is there 10 bucks missing from my pocket?
July 20, 2006
This comedy is so unfunny, it's like director Ivan Reitman and company had their senses of humor tranquilized from guzzling kryptonite lattes.
July 20, 2006
[Thurman] again proves herself an inspired goofball, switching personalities and wardrobes with the quick-change precision of Christopher Reeve in his prime.
