My Super Ex-GirlfriendClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while the tone remains light-comedic, the film includes frequent sexual references and images, including jokes about "close" male friendships, effeminate men, and domineering women. Three sex scenes in beds (two comically show beds slamming through walls as superwomen are on top of partners). A character makes repeated sexual remarks about women; a black supervisor at work discusses sexual harassment and feels offended when Matt carelessly calls her "homegirl." Violence is cartoonish and frequent (explosions, robbery ending in gunfire at superbodied G-Girl, falls, slamming through ceilings and walls). Characters drink wine and beer. Villain smokes cigarettes.
- Sexual Content
- Sexual situations and slang; tongue-kissing; sexual-activity jokes; Matt stripped naked in his office (you see him from behind); references to sexual harassment; Jenny's breasts grow when she's first transformed into G-Girl; Matt feels "emasculated" sex while flying; another sex scene shows flesh in conventional close shots (hands, torsos, soft light).
- G-Girl thwarts robbery, mugging, fire, and missile headed to NYC, also saves Matt who is hanging from Statue of Liberty (all these scenes feature frantic camera, harrowing/comic situations); explosion when Jenny touches meteor; shark in apartment bites at Matt and destroys furniture; in a nightmare, G-Girl threatens Matt with a chainsaw; fight between supergirls wreaks havoc on street.
- Some profanity ("a--hole," SOB," "hell," "s--t," "damn" etc.); and some lively phrasing ("hellcat in bed," "chainsaw up the a--"); Jenny laser-burns the word "dick" into Matt's forehead.

- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
