Maddening, invigorating, ridiculous, hilarious and messier than a rack of ribs without a napkin.
August 19, 2004
It's a muddled, overlong, politically incorrect satire that goes wrong in so many ways it's hard to know where to begin dismantling the thing.

I will not say that I liked it. I will say that like Bamboozled, it exasperates and resonates.

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.

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

Lee should know better -- he's too talented to be serving up this kind of silliness, and so are his actors.
August 13, 2004
Easily Lee's most disorganized movie, She Hate Me is also one of the most preposterous efforts by any major director in recent memory.
August 7, 2004
Lee, who always has an agenda, is fundamentally unsuited to satire, which has no sides, no friends, no agenda.
August 6, 2004
For all his irreverence, Lee still seems uncertain how to convey deep, adult feeling without seeming obligated to feel.
August 6, 2004
She Hate Me invites anger and analysis about the stereotypes it appears to celebrate; a film that attacked those stereotypes would inspire yawns.
August 5, 2004
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.

... may be the worst movie of the year.
August 1, 2004
The mlange of plots, subplots, reveries, gags, cartoons, dirty bits, and hissy fits points to a work that is structurally modelled less on the classic narratives of cinema than on, say, a portion of Russian salad.

This 140-minute I-don't-know- what-it-is unravels like a ball of yarn after a bout with a tiger on Colombian catnip.

When a Spike Lee film doesn't fly, it sinks like a stone. This one is Gibraltar.
July 28, 2004
At 2 1/2 hours running time, you get more than you bargained for in sheer befuddlement.
July 28, 2004
It seems as if She Hate Me is two different stories spliced together, with cross-purposed tones and topics.
July 28, 2004
May not be subtle or disciplined, but it is funny as hell.
July 28, 2004
It's quite a paradox that someone so acutely attuned to racism would so enthusiastically embrace the worst clichs of homophobia and misogyny.
July 28, 2004
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.
