    My wife and I saw this before X-Men 3. The whole theater was laughing pretty hard. I thought it looked just OK. But we might give it a try during the $5.00 days at our theater.

    It stars Luke Wilson and Uma Thurman. I believe it's directed by Ivan Reitman.

    Oh and I searched HTF for the title and got 500 hits but didn't go past the 1st page of search hits.

    Sorry about that. Had a major connection slow down. Please delete the duplicates.

    I was originally thinking of waiting for the dvd but I feel kind of obligated to see it because a buddy of mine worked on the film. Hopefully it'll be a good funny time.

    I know one thing, Uma looks hot on the movie poster for this.

    When watching the trailer I was thinking, oh great another cookie cutter romance ripoff. Then the superhero kicked in. I laughed outloud at her throwing the shark. Overall, looks like a hoot. [​IMG]

    The trilaer looked like they were playing it too broad for my taste, but I'll likely check it out at some point.

    God, I dunno. Looks kind of dumb.

    I like superhero flicks
    I can dig a good romantic comedy
    but I don't know that the two of them really need to be put together.

    Have to agree here. Looks like barely a rental if they're lucky.

    I haven't seen the trailer for this one yet (although, all this stuff about a shark-throw really makes me want to), but I do quite like the poster.

    Looks like fun to me. I don't expect a great superhero film or a great romantic comedy, but it looks like a good rental choice.

    I'd heard about this before seeing the trailer and I was quite interested in the premise. In my mind I was seeing a superhero struggling with doing the right thing, taking the high road - when it's something personal and, in comparison to saving the world, trivial. But the trailer presented it like she's a total psycho. She might as well have been a witch or a demon. Of course it could be just the trailer, so I'm hoping there's a little more substance to the film than just her going all Fatal Attraction, but with super powers.

    Ivan Reitman is one of my favorite directors of comedy, so that helps me boost my enthusiasm a bit.

    And yes, I even enjoyed Bedazzled. [​IMG]

    If you are referring to the fact that "Bedazzled" is an Ivan Reitman film, then I hate to disappoint you. That film was directed by Harold Ramis.

    Although if you are saying that it's in the same vein and you enjoyed it, then yes, I would agree with you on that. I didn't think that film was half bad myself.

    I know I am going to get killed for this. But, I really don't find Uma that good looking. I am not saying she is ugly. She just doesn't do it for me. Sorry Uma fans. [​IMG]

    Where the hell was my brain at!? I knew that Harold Ramis directed that but for some reason I got him mixed up with Ivan Reitman. [​IMG] My bad and thanks for correction or I would have went all year thinking that. [​IMG]

    My comment still stands, though, with the exception of Junior i've loved all of Ivan's films. [​IMG]

    Well it may not be in the running come oscar time but it looks like it has promise. I'll make it a date flick, my girlfriend will definitely get a kick out of it after the fight we had a few weeks ago....she didn't have a shark at the time, but if she had.....[​IMG]
