Goofs

In the flashback in which we see the meteor land, the trajectory of the meteor implies a landing point many miles into western New Jersey (the Manhattan skyline is visible in the same shot). Barry and Jenny, on the eastern shore of New Jersey, are the first people to reach the meteor, which is absurd. See more »

Matt Saunders: That's right, you better run, asshole! Keep running, my man. You don't want any of this! Keep running! Yeah!
[purse snatcher comes back around the corner with a lead pipe in his hands]
Scary Dude: What'd you call me?
Matt Saunders: Holy shit!

Look, It's G-Girl!
22 July 2006 | by SonOfMoogSee all my reviews

This movie answers the question, how does a relationship survive when your girlfriend is codependent, clinging, needy, jealous .. and has powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal women?

Without spoiling the movie, I can safely assure you it does not, but there's great fun to be had along the way. Uma Thurman is perfect as the mercurial super-heroine, an uber-babe, mysteriously named G-Girl, who unlike most in her sisterhood, is not *always* dedicated to truth, justice, and the American Way.

Thurman is also believable as the thoroughly daft, yet somehow still fetching, curator Jenny. When she is dumped for a less endowed but more emotionally secure and well adjusted rival, G-Girl goes ballistic, and what follows is not pretty. It's funny, but it's not pretty ..

It's a delightful premise, hell hath no fury like a super-heroine scorned, and those involved don't altogether carry it off, but it has its moments, and I think I'll get the DVD.

I liked this movie ..
