Pros:Luke Wilson

Cons:Boooooooooor-ing

The Bottom Line: The Bottom Line actually has quite petite feet....


We got stranded in Miami a day longer than expected, so I decided to go see a matinee while Lars fights with the DMV to get the company vehicle registration straightened out. I think I would have been better off to have gone with him today than to see My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Live and learn.

This one sounded like it would be good silly fun. The premise is that Luke Wilson is your everyday kinda guy. He's cute and nice and fun but is a little on the shy side and just not all that chic-savvy. One day on the Metro he gets goaded into asking out a slightly mousy brunette (Uma Thurman.) As it turns out, Uma is in her alter-ego personae... when trouble rears it's ugly head, she becomes way-hot G-Girl, super heroine ala Superman. Trouble is, she's a bit on the crazy side so eventually Luke wants to dump her for the cute little blonde chickie he works with. Uma goes rabid.

Now, Uma Thurman is like this mega-star. She has a great sense of humor and the rare ability to laugh at herself. There was even one line dissing her big feet, which I'm sure was inserted as a salute to her gig as The Bride in Kill Bill: Vol. 1, where she showed those feet in all their glory. This role of G-Girl just really did not suit her, though. It isn't that she was bad in the part, it's more that it is simply just a bad part and nobody could have made it any different.

Luke Wilson has seemed to always take backseat to his big brother Owen in the movie industry, but I always kinda wondered why that is. I mean, I like Owen a great deal, but I like Luke also. They had movies opening within a week of each other, so the sibling competition is in full swing this month. I gotta say that although Luke was fabulous in My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Owen is gonna win this one because Super is really pretty bad in spite of Luke's superior efforts.

I know damn well that what I like is very dependant upon my mood at the time of viewing, but I was in a good mood today in spite of our traveling plans having been delayed. Heck, I was happy about it because it gave me a chance to go get my nails done and catch a movie. So, it was not my own mood in this instance at all. It was the movie. There isn't one specific thing I can point out which buries it though. It's just a premise which could have had a good outcome, but didn't. It's just that simple. Not all good ideas work out in the execution, yanno?

It's just, well, stupid as hell. The gags fall short for the most part, Uma plays it a bit too schlocky, and the evil mastermind dude wasn't umm evil. I guess it comes down to me not caring about the characters, really. I mean, I wanted to Luke to get a clue and go for the dump, sure, but I wasn't like urging him on or anything. I was actually trying to read my watch in the dark theater... that has happened very few times in my life and is very telling. I can find something to like in most movies. I'm just a movie freak. I'm having a hard time with this one.

This ran for maybe the longest 95 minutes of my life and is Rated PG-13 for sexual content, crude humor, language and brief nudity. Bah, I say. Any age is fine. Yeah yeah there's some stupid gags about sex with a SuperChick, but they're just stupid and go on for a bit too long. The kiddies may giggle a bit. I yawned.

I'm going with 2 stars for My Super Ex-Girlfriend and saying to avoid it. If you really still feel compelled to see it, at least do yourself a favor and wait for it to show up on cable.
