The names Jenny Johnson and G-Girl are alliterative, similar to numerous Marvel and DC characters. See more »
As the film opens, there's a shot from the back seat of the escape car looking forward. If you look at the dashboard, you can see the transmission gear selector is in park, even though the car's moving. See more »
A guy desperate for action attempts to hit on a gorgeous girl in a bus. She refuses him, but when he runs after someone who tries to steal her purse they get together anyway. And there it starts - a relation that is slightly tainted by the fact that she is a jealous and neurotic superhero. It can't be a secret that things between them are going to be problematic.
In short, a story that could promise to grow out into a cool film. And IMO, it succeeds at being a nice film. It's no masterpiece, but it had me in tears from laughing on more than one occasion - the two lead characters twirl around each other in a crazy love fest that is, even with the superhero thing going, believable.
So. Thin story, but worked out really funny and thus worthy of cinema time.
