    When a Spike Lee film doesn't fly, it sinks like a stone. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    About as awful as a film can be without being the ultimate awful, which is boring. show more

    This 140-minute I-don't-know-what-it-is unravels like a ball of yarn after a bout with a tiger on Colombian catnip. Lee exhaust me. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    It's too much for a feature film, and too little, but it certainly isn't dull. show more

    Like most Lee films, She Hate Me is gasp-worthy, with something to offend everyone. I will not say that I liked it. I will say that like "Bamboozled," it exasperates and resonates. show more

    It's hard to say what's most disappointing about She Hate Me, Spike Lee's absurdly - and arrogantly overlong comedic drama. But there are plenty of options to choose from. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It is exciting to watch this movie. It is never boring. Lee is like a juggler who starts out with balls and gradually adds baseball bats, top hats and chainsaws. It's not an intellectual experience, but an emotional one. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A daring, entertaining, but somewhat disappointing affair, something of an overreacher despite Lee's usual pyrotechnics and a brilliant cast. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    This intensely topical satire tackles a wide range of important issues, from corporate whistle-blowing to the toll sexual license takes on stable family structures. show more
