From Amazon.co.uk

Girl power (or if you prefer, woman power) gets a goofy boost in My Super Ex-Girlfriend, a breezy rom-com that's as fun as it is forgettable. As devised by former Simpsons writer Don Payne and directed by comedy veteran Ivan (Ghostbusters) Reitman, the premise is certainly promising, and much of that promise is gamely fulfilled. When a New York building designer named Matt (Luke Wilson) discovers that his new girlfriend Jenny (Uma Thurman) is actually a crime-fighting, disaster-solving superhero named G-Girl who's also needy, neurotic, and unpredictably volatile, he realises he's got to dump her as politely as possible or face the potentially deadly consequences. Since he's really in love with a cute colleague (Anna Faris), and since the arch-villain Professor Bedlam (Eddie Izzard) has been in love with G-Girl since they were outcast pals in high school, you can easily figure out where the comedy is going. But getting there is surprisingly enjoyable, given the rather flat execution of a pretty good idea. The shark-tossing scene is a highlight, and other memorable scenes compensate for Reitman's embrace of a bitchy female stereotype that's either insulting or truthful, depending on your own romantic experience as the dumper or dumpee. Rainn Wilson (from the American version of The Office) performs the obligatory sidekick duties, and comedian Wanda Sykes is just plain annoying in a shrill and unnecessary role. Silly? You bet. Go in expecting that, and you won't be disappointed. --Jeff Shannon

This is a great idea, Matt Saunders (Luke Wilson) has no success with women and relies on his friend Vaughan Haige (Rainn Wilson) for advice, advice that is always wrong.

Egged on by his friend Matt approaches a girl on a train Jenny Johnson (Uma Thurman) who turns out to be quirky, insecure, and a real pain in the proverbial, but she also happens to be G Girl a superhero.

This is one really funny and amusing film, great interaction between all the stars, sure footed direction and stunts pitched exactly right, I enjoyed every minute.

Best of all is the laugh out loud sex scene when superhero G Girl gets on top of poor old Matt.

An excellent dual-role for Uma Thurman, as she plays shy art studio worker Jenny Johnson and her alter-ego super hero G-girl. Jenny/G-girl is nuerotic and lonely, so when Matt (Luke Wilson) tries to do something nice and heroic for her, she literally goes crazy for him. Matt tries to break it off with his super girlfriend, and that's when everything starts flying.

Rainn Wilson is great as Vaughn, Matt's quick/foul mouthed womanizing friend. Great interaction between Matt and Vaughn.

The sex scenes are hilarious (PG-13 rating), as are the scenes where G-girl/Jenny tries to have a normal life, especially when Matt knows who she really is (should she interrupt a date to save the city and leave Matt with another woman at the table? decisions, decisions!).

G-girl's arch nemesis Professor Bedlam (aka Barry) has a history with G-girl from high school. I would have liked more about what Bedlam had done that made him a villan, that would have made his character more believable and helped the ending.

My only complaint was that the ending was somewhat trivialized and forced. But this is a very funny and enjoyable movie, watched and enjoyed by my wife, myself and our teenage son.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice gentle comedy 9 Jun 2007
By Dazman
Format:DVD
I have just got this film, mainly on the back of what was a very good trailer, unfortunately just about all of the funniest bit's were on the trailer and so after my initial viewing I was a little disappointed.

This is a good little film, but is definately not an out and out comedy (which it should have been), it does take time to get going despite the film only being 1h30mins long it takes a good 30 minutes to really get going which is again disappointing, but I do recommend it if only to watch this once to see how you feel about it.

I am so shocked at the fact that the idea of a guy dumping a superhero and her getting back at him has not crossed anyones mind as a film for this long. What a great idea and its pulled off for these guys. Nearly.

The films plot is about when regular average Joe Matt starts dating unknown superhero Jenny Johnson (G-Girl) and starts getting annoyed by her high maintanance habits, he decides to brake it off with her untill he realises that everything isn't going to be all nice and dandy now hes doen that.

Uma Thurman puts in an excellent performance as the scorned superhero who plays some hilarious revenge on Matt by throwing a shark into teh room hes in and writing dick on his forehead before a major job conference. Ok her performance goes a little over the top at times but hey its a slapstick movie. Luke Wilson is the best thing in this movie considering in other movies he produces a stinker, his facial expressions and reactions to his "punishments" from the delightful G-Girl are priceless and made me chuckle in the cinema. Other performances from Anna Faris and Eddie Izzard are good but forgettable.

The special effects team have done a good job with the film except perhaps the CGI shark which could have been better, however dealing with G-Girl and how she flys and puts out fires are top notch.

The script is funny because the lines Uma Thurman's character has to stay are so run for your life men it brings tears of hilarity to your eyes.

The only criticism is some of the sex jokes are a bit OTT and carry on for too long and may even question the 12A certificate for this movie. Also there is a point in the movie where it becomes a bit boring and your just begging Matt to break it off so the laughing can start.

Overall My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a winner but may leave some people undecided because for some it may be funny but for some it may be damn right stupid.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Fatal Attraction" meets "Wonder Woman" 11 Dec 2006
By Gary Hilton VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A one-joke movie if ever there was, but the joke happens to be quite a good one -- a Tracy-and-Hepburn-style battle of the sexes in which Kate can fly and blast through walls -- and director Ivan Reitman (who made Ghostbusters) feels at home with the mix of screwball and supernatural.

Casting definetly helps the film work. Uma Thurman is among the few actresses who can pull off this role: the hot, buff, slightly deranged superhero and her dowdy, un-sexy alter-ego. Wilson gets the tone spot on -a weird sort of self-aware despicability.

Sadly, the script lets it down and if it were only a tenth as hot as Uma Thurman, director Ivan Reitman might have had a mega-hit here! There is a sense that there are a lot of missed opportunites and that the entire film is not as funny (or as clever) as it thinks it is. Still, "My Super Ex" does have a certain low-key, adult-contemporary charm and is recommended viewing.
