Review - My Super Ex-Girlfriend

Brief Synopsis: Matt sees Jenny, an attractive girl on a train and asks her out. After they’ve been dating for a while, she tells him that she’s G-Girl, the local super hero. She’s also nuts and gets insanely jealous whenever she sees Matt with Hannah, the cute girl from his office. When Matt gets tired of Jenny’s craziness, he breaks up with her. She goes nuts and trashes his car, his house, everything. G-Girl’s nemesis, Professor Bedlam contacts Matt and asks him to help eliminate her power. (It turns out that Bedlam was a childhood friend of Jenny who is madly in love with her and wants to rid her of her powers so she’ll pay attention to him.) Matt asks Jenny to his place, planning on exposing her to a meteor that will sap her power. Then Hannah shows up, things go haywire and Jenny and Hannah end up with equal powers. They fight over Matt until he tells Jenny that Bedlam is in love with her. Everyone makes up and Jenny and Hannah fight crime together while Bedlam and Matt are left holding the purses.

What I liked about it: Uma Thurman was great as the neurotic Jenny. The dialogue between the characters was funny, and the movie actually had some sweet moments.

What I didn’t like about it: Way, way too much sexual humor.

Bottom line: I rate it a 7. Sally and I both enjoyed it more than Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
