My Super Ex-Girlfriend Reviews

August 3, 2006
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.

With such an amiable cast and lots of crisp dialogue, you can forgive the chinks in the armour.
July 28, 2006
...A movie that would rather tweak male paranoia than liberate a nerdette terrified of her powers.
July 22, 2006
Most of the jokes are left flapping like a fish on the line, delivered with zero energy by the leads...
July 22, 2006
The Ivan Reitman-directed comedy manages to sap the charm from everyone in its cast, all of whom have shone quite brightly in other settings.
July 21, 2006
The fusion of effects-fueled action fantasy with comedy worked well for director Ivan Reitman 22 years ago in Ghostbusters and, less so, five years ago in Evolution. But, it fails to save his latest, My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
July 21, 2006
There's a funny idea here, but you might not know it from Don Payne's script, or, for that matter, from Ms. Thurman's performance.
July 21, 2006
[Ivan Reitman's] funniest movie since Ghostbusters, and a riff on superhero mythology that plays like a mashup of Bewitched (the TV show, not the movie), The Breakup and Fatal Attraction.
July 21, 2006
A less willfully misogynist movie might have made Thurman's double identity the starting place for an exploration of female power, super- or otherwise.
July 21, 2006
My Super Ex-Girlfriend, simply by having a genuinely funny idea at its core, is one of the summer's better comedies, and director Ivan Reitman and the cast give it a straight-faced silliness.
July 21, 2006
The movie is unable to achieve lift-off and transcend the formulaic stuff coming out of Hollywood, despite the perfect casting of Uma Thurman, emboldened by a killer image from Kill Bill, in the title role.
July 21, 2006
If the script for this comic spin on Fatal Attraction were only a tenth as hot as Uma Thurman, director Ivan Reitman might have had something here.
July 21, 2006
This sophomoric mix of the supernatural and screwball from Ivan Reitman is diverting, cheesy fun, with Thurman's G-Girl as a droll combination of Superwoman and Uber Shrew.
July 21, 2006
For all its many shortcomings, this old-school laugher is a pleasure to sit through.
July 21, 2006
There are about 20 minutes worth of decent sketch comedy here, which means this one beats the summer's other Wilson brother comedy, You, Me and Dupree.
July 21, 2006
My Super Ex, directed by comedy veteran Ivan Reitman (the Ghostbuster movies) from a clever high-concept script by Don Payne (The Simpsons), is as cool a summer lark as you'll find.
July 21, 2006
My Super Ex-Girlfriend, despite a couple of amusing moments and the presence of The Office's Rainn Wilson, never really takes off.
July 21, 2006
Director Ivan Reitman, who's been busting our guts since Ghost Busters, stirs a high-concept stew of Fatal Attraction meets The Incredibles.
July 21, 2006
Funnier than Nacho Libre, more fashionable than The Devil Wears Prada, able to deliver more revengeful thrills than X-Men: The Last Stand in a single scene.
July 21, 2006
Directed by Ivan Reitman with the same loopy amiability he brought to hits like Ghostbusters, Junior and Dave in decades past, it is a solid summer confection with no pretensions.
