Consensus: My Super Ex=Girlfriend is an only sporadically amusing spoof on the superhero genre that misses the mark with a nerd-turned-superwoman who embodies sexist clichés.

Time Out

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.

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.

A pleasant, harmless distraction that's plenty of fun if you want a lighter take on the world of caped crusaders

...A movie that would rather tweak male paranoia than liberate a nerdette terrified of her powers.

Robert Koehler

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.

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

Though not without its amusements, My Super Ex-Girlfriend is a high-concept studio pitch trying to pass itself off as an actual movie.

Most of the jokes are left flapping like a fish on the line, delivered with zero energy by the leads...

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

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.

Cole Smithey

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.

Welll this certanly stinks. It's just not okay. Nothing bad agains Luke or Uma. They're both allright. But who can perform under these conditions?
Bethany Murphy
Quite funny! Uma Thurman plays a great obsessed ex-girlfriend, she was the funniest of the film.
Jason Robinson
Inexplicably, I love this movie.
Lady D'arbanville
Having very low expectations of this film, I was satisfied that it turned into a watchable no-brainer of a movie, with a few comical moments. An easy Sunday… More
