While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
In New York, when the shy and lonely project manager of a design firm Matt Saunders meets Jenny Johnson in the subway, he invites her to date and have dinner with him. Jenny immediately falls in love for him, they have sex and she discloses her true identity to him, telling that she is the powerful superhero G-Girl. After meeting his co-worker and friend Hannah Lewis, the needy Jenny becomes jealous, controlling and manipulative, and Matt follows the advice of his best friend Vaughn Haige and dumps her, breaking her heart. Jenny turns Matt's life into hell, while he has a romance with Hannah. However, the archenemy of G-Girl and former high school sweetheart of Jenny, Professor Bedlam, proposes Matt to lure Jenny to strip her superpowers. Written by

The shape and amount of damage caused by Jenny banging the bed against the wall changes between shots - at first it's L-shaped and makes an actual hole in the wall. Once she stops, it's just a straight line and just surface damage. See more »
Never had any interest in seeing this movie, but I caught in on HBO on a Sunday afternoon and found myself laughing out loud on multiple occasions. Better than I expected. Worth watching if you're looking for some good light laughs. Luke Wilson is pretty hilarious when he takes a beating, but Rainn Wilson steals every scene he's in, pretty much playing a sex hungry version of Dwight Schrute. Throws some funny twists onto the Super hero/villain dynamic as well. It's a well thought out movie and an interesting take on the superhero genre, but most of the execution is mediocre; in the end some of the jokes work and some don't. 6/10
