A regular guy finds out just how hard breaking up can truly be when attempting to call it quits with a clingy female crime fighter who doesn't want to let love die in director Ivan Reitman's super-powered romantic comedy. Matt Saunders (Luke Wilson) was looking for love when he first met pretty brunette Jenny Johnson (Uma Thurman), and at the time it seemed as if he may had finally actually found it. Jenny isn't just your typical girl, though, because despite her outwardly normal appearance she is actually a powerful superhero dedicated to ridding the streets of crime. Her outward… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Edward Lawrenson, Time Out
"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."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"A pleasant, harmless distraction that's plenty of fun if you want a lighter take on the world of caped crusaders"
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"A breezy timepass entertainment with a little hint of bite."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It teetered on the edge of totally sucking, but in the end, it actually pulled everything off."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"...A movie that would rather tweak male paranoia than liberate a nerdette terrified of her powers."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"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."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Though not without its amusements, My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a high-concept studio pitch trying to pass itself off as an actual movie."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"at heart a deeply misogynistic view of female empowerment."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Even if it falls slightly short of super, Ex-Girlfriend is a film that's well worth having around."
‑ Josh Hurst, Christianity Today
"Most of the jokes are left flapping like a fish on the line, delivered with zero energy by the leads..."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"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."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"What probably should have been an R-rated movie, ala "The 40 Year-Old Virgin," comes off as a half-hearted attempt at poking laughs with unlikable characters."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"The funniest parts of the script, like its characters' casual acceptance of a comic-book reality, are so subdued that they can be missed entirely."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"A one joke film that runs its comedic course in about thirty minutes."
‑ Jim Chastain, Norman Transcript
