My Super Ex-Girlfriend ★★ 2006 (PG-13)

“Fatal Attraction” meets “Wonder Woman” in this weak effort from veteran director Ivan Reitman. Uma Thurman plays the dual role of Jenny Johnson, Manhattan art curator by day, and G-Girl, crime-fighting superheroine at night, who, unfortunately for her unsuspecting new boyfriend, Matt (Luke Wilson), is super-insecure as well. When Matt makes the mistake of dumping the possessive Jenny, she unleashes the fury of her powers on him. Reitman doesn't know what he wants—comedy, girl-power statement, relationship/date movie—and fails on all fronts as a result. 96m/C DVD . US Uma Thurman, Luke Wilson, Anna Faris, Rainn Wilson, Eddie Izzard, Wanda Sykes, Mark Consuelos; D: Ivan Reitman; W: Don Payne; C: Don Burgess; M: Teddy Castellucci.
