My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Matt Saunders (Wilson) needs to find a girlfriend – one that isn’t his workmate, Hannah, who he would love to date, but who is seeing some-one else. He meets Jenny Johnson (Thurman) and despite her slight awkwardness, they start a relationship. It gets exciting when Matt discovers that Jenny is actually superhero, G-Girl. But even G-Girl can be needy, jealous and demanding. When he tries to break it off with Jenny, Matt finds out how dangerous dating a superhero can be. Time to call on the services of G-Girl’s arch nemesis (and former high school boyfriend), Professor Bedlam.
This is a light rom com from 2006. The comedy isn’t too clever, and the jokes are a bit tired, but some of the action helps it along. It’s not a bad film, but it could have been a lot better. There was a solid storyline, one that doesn’t fit in to one of the typical rom com themes, but nothing amazing to make it stand out. Not worth watching twice.
