Consensus: She Hate Me can't decide if it wants to be a commentary on corporate greed or a sex farce.

Roger Moore

Jeff Strickler
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Two movies mashed together.

The second star is for the sexyness and humour of SOME scenes. Nooo, it is for Kerry Washington. Any film with her gets a star just for including her. ;-) Apart… More
