Many of us have had that one ex that just couldn’t accept that it was over. But, they probably weren’t secretly a superhero with the ability to make your life a living hell after you dump them, and they also probably weren’t Uma Thurman. That’s the basic plot of the terribly awesome My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Thurman plays Jenny Johnson, who is also secretly the superhero ‘G-Girl.’ After going on a date and hooking up with average Joe Matt Saunders (played by Luke Wilson) Jenny falls madly in love with him and reveals her secret identity. However, it doesn’t take long for Matt to realize that Jenny is extremely needy and he dumps her. She doesn’t take this well and makes it her mission to ruin Matt’s life.
Why it’s terrible:
- The special effects. Yikes. Seriously, it came out in 2006. What was the budget being spent on?
- Luke Wilson…Sorry man, not your best work.
- Rainn Wilson. His character Vaughn is terrible, but in the best way.
- The acting, it’s so bad it’s good.
Why it’s awesome:
- It’s Uma Thurman playing a gawky, needy, insecure girl. How often does that ever happen?
- It’s Uma Thurman playing a crazy badass superhero. Again, how often does that ever happen?
- Anna Faris. Seriously. I don’t get why people don’t like her. She’s hilarious.
- The almost chick fight between Jenny and Hannah, I don’t know why, but there’s something so hilariously dramatic about that scene that just makes me laugh.
- The scene when Jenny reveals to Matt that she’s G-Girl. Hilarious and uncomfortable all at the same time.
