My Su­per Ex-Girl­friend ELEVEN, 8.30pm, M (2006)

Geelong Advertiser - - TV GEELONG ADVERTISER TV GUIDE -

Try­ing to lam­poon su­per­heroes the way he did spooks in Ghost­busters, di­rec­tor Ivan Reit­man’s wryly ridicu­lous com­edy sees lik­able New Yorker Matt (Luke Wil­son) be­come smit­ten with book­ish art gallery worker Jenny (Uma Thur­man). But when the pair’s ini­tial chem­istry turns sour, Matt breaks it off. Big mis­take. It turns out that Jenny is a su­per­hero by the name of G-Girl and man­i­fests her heartache by mak­ing her re­gret­ful ex’s life a liv­ing hell. Uma throws her­self into play­ing the sassy, sexy crime fighter and Wil­son is his re­li­ably lowkey, hu­mor­ous self. MySu­perEx-Girl­friend of­fers a welcome dose of hu­mour to the in­creas­ingly self-im­por­tant comic-book-to-film genre.
