My Super Ex-Girlfriend


Breaking up is hard to do, but sometimes it can be downright dangerous. In the Ivan Reitman comedy MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND, Matt Saunders (Luke Wilson) thinks he’s finally found the perfect girlfriend, the beautiful Jenny Johnson (Uma Thurman)-who just so happens to be a superhero. When Jenny/G-Girl becomes overly possessive, Matt wants to call it quits-but how do you break up with a superhero? A scorned woman, Jenny/G-Girl unleashes on her ex the full fury of her super-powered wrath as she sets out on a no-holds-barred mission to bust up Matt’s budding romance with his co-worker Hannah (Anna Faris).

Dove Review

Let’s start with a couple of positives. Luke Wilson plays his role very earnestly in this film and does a great job acting. Uma Thurman also adds some nuances and is believable as a jealous woman who becomes a scorned woman and takes her superhero powers out on her former boyfriend Matt (Wilson). She also plays G-Girl and becomes a somewhat maniacal demon in seeking revenge against Matt.

The laughs are actually few in this film and the content area goes way over the line as far as this being a family-friendly film. There is rear nudity of Wilson’s character, sex scenes which are strongly implied though not graphically seen. The scene in which Matt and Jenny have sex is a scene of strong content due to the bed shaking (remember, Jenny is really a super woman named G-Girl). There are sexual innuendos throughout the film, including during the credits! A woman says a man has the “horni*s.” G-Girl blazes the word di*k in Matt’s forehead. And the language also knocks yet another Hollywood film out of the arena of family approved entertainment. If you want to spend a super evening, try an idea other than this film.
