Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Succeeds in finding something to offend almost everybody."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Lee presumably had two ideas, one an exposé of pharmaceutical greed, the other a sex comedy: then he decided that neither one would make a film in itself and came up with the lame idea of combining them."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"She Hate Me isn't subversive, it's insipid."
‑ Nathan Lee, Film Comment Magazine
"Com idéias interessantes o bastante para render três filmes, Spike Lee realiza um filme assustadoramente caótico e sem foco para um cineasta com sua experiência."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"[Spike Lee] is a genius who's never made a decent film."
‑ Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Mercury
"A misshapen and sometimes sorry affair that aims for satire, without always being clear about what it's attempting to satirize."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Two movies mashed together."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"This extremely graphic movie is not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Tighter focus would have incited the fury that She Hate Me's ambition demands. It's left saying too much but not enough."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"Is Lee satirizing something? Is this all a metaphor for something? Or is it just a heavy-handed mess, full of non-sequiturs? My vote is for the latter."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"[Lee's] most muddled message movie to date."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Spike Lee's She Hate Me is about as awful as a film can be without being the ultimate awful, which is boring."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
""She Hate Me" is just as tongue-tied as its ridiculous title."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Seems like the ramblings of an insulated, precocious teenager"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
"The politest way to assess Spike Lee's latest polemic is to call it too ambitious. 'An unholy mess' might come closer to the truth."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
