    If the script for this comic spin on Fatal Attraction were only a tenth as hot as Uma Thurman, director Ivan Reitman might have had something here. show more

    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    The movie is unable to achieve lift-off and transcend the formulaic stuff coming out of Hollywood, despite the perfect casting of Uma Thurman. show more

    My Super Ex-Girlfriend manages to do what the recent crop of crime fighters haven't: show us how much fun it might be to fly, or have super strength, or look buff in spandex. show more

    This sophomoric mix of the supernatural and screwball from Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) is diverting, cheesy fun, with Thurman's G-Girl as a droll combination of Superwoman and Uber Shrew. show more

    Casting helps the film work. Uma Thurman is among the few actresses who can pull off this role: the hot, buff, slightly deranged superhero and her dowdy, un-sexy alter-ego. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Funnier than "Nacho Libre," more fashionable than "The Devil Wears Prada," able to deliver more revengeful thrills than "X-Men: The Last Stand" in a single scene, My Super Ex-Girlfriend may sound like a midsummer mash of "The Break-Up" and "Superman," but it's more clever and emotionally resonant than that. show more

    Overall, the film's sheer mediocrity prevents Thurman from flying to its rescue. show more

    Most of the gags recycle the same tired old romantic comedy schtick, with special effects. show more

    The dumbest movie since Supergirl, only with even more bad acting, and a cast that makes Adam West and Burt Ward look like professional actors by contrast.
