My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Beautiful (but lonely) Jenny Johnson’s (Thurman) alter ego is super-heroine G-Girl, protector of New York City. One day, Matt (Wilson) spots Jenny on the subway and asks her out. A romance quickly blossoms. But, Matt soon learns Jenny's peccadilloes - she turns out to be a "trifecta": vindictive, jealous and manipulative.

Even after finding out Jenny’s alter-ego, Matt bails. But Jenny's not so willing to let go and uses her powers to exact revenge (such as biffing a great white shark through his new lady friend’s window).

Film wears it's cheesy effects on it's sleeve and is said to "address the true questions we'd ask if superpowered. What is superhero sex like? Would we get back at that date who never called again? Would we fry his goldfish with our X-ray vision?"

At some point in the development of "My Super Ex-Girlfriend," the notion of a high-concepts merger -- She's a superhero! She's a single gal prone to insane jealousy! -- must have provoked the movie-formula equivalent of a sugar rush. But audiences will find evidence only of the ensuing glucose crash in this sour, joyless affair...

For Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters continues to cast one hell of a shadow. Shame — if he’d managed to resist the lure of big, shiny FX, this could have worked as a very black comedy...

Inevitably there's fun to be had with scenes of superhuman coitus, but the laughs definitely belong to Wilson with his deadpan expression and general willingness to look daft as the nebbish left holding the handbag...
