A film from the director of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' starring Creator/UmaThurman and Luke Wilson. The latter plays Matt Saunders; your basic everyman, who unwittingly ends up dating Superheroine G-Girl's alter ego. He finds out her secret, but soon also discovers that she's a ClingyJealousGirl and breaks up with her for being controlling and dangerous.

[[WomanScorned She doesn't take it very well]]. Meanwhile, [[EddieIzzard her nemesis]] hatches a plan to use this domestic dispute to depower her, and enlists Matt to spring the trap.

!This film provides examples of:

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Jenny acquires this along with her superpowers and became G-Girl, leaving poor Barry alone and embittered to become Prof. Bedlam.
** Although considering the off-hand way she states she chose to lose her virginity to Barry, "just to get it out of the way", apparently never bothering to notice that he was ''completely'' in love with her, heavily implies she was somewhat of a self-centred jerkass ''before'' she got her powers.
* AllIsWellThatEndsWell. [[spoiler:She ruins his entire life AND his car. She offers to pay for the car she ruined. He's somehow okay with that]].
** [[spoiler: Considering she threw a ''Shark'' at him, he considers himself lucky to be still breathing! It's obvious that he'd be BullyingADragon if he continued to press the issue and even Matt's not ''that'' stupid.]]
* AlliterativeName: G-Girl's SecretIdentity is named Jenny Johnson. It gets a LampshadeHanging near the beginning.
* AnimalAssassin: G-Girl throws a live ''shark'' through her ex's bedroom window.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: The source of G-Girl's superpowers. (Specifically, GreenRocks.)
* BerserkButton: Do not call Jenny, "Crazy!"
* BewareTheSuperman: Particularly if she is a ClingyJealousGirl and you're planning to break up with her.
* BreastExpansion: Happen's as part of G-Girl's origin story.
* ButtMonkey: Matt.
* CaptainErsatz: G-Girl is basically a female {{Superman}}, complete with a copy of LexLuthor.
* CasanovaWannabe: Matt's friend Vaughn. [[spoiler:He finally gets laid after the credits]].
* CatFight: [[spoiler:G-Girl and Hannah after the latter gets superpowers]].
* ClarkKenting: Wig + NerdGlasses = Instant disguise!
** Averted when Matt later discovers that his initial assessment of her ''was'' correct after all. Jenny's civilian personality isn't an act and she really ''is'' a emotionally unstable, neurotic, basket-case!
* ClingyJealousGirl
* DatingCatwoman: [[spoiler:In the end, G-Girl and Professor Bedlam. He's implied to have [[HeelFaceTurn switched sides though]]]].
* DestructoNookie
* DoNotCallMePaul: Professor Bedlam does not appreciate being referred to as Barry.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: TheMovie. The film basically portrays a manipulative, controlling, [[DomesticAbuse physically and emotionally abusive relationship]] [[UpToEleven enhanced with superpowers]], as a comedy. It's still put in a negative light, of course, but a GenderSwap would be the stuff of ''nightmares''.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Between Matt and Hannah.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Includes the main guy going from the superheroine G-Girl to his crush, Hannah. [[spoiler: What is odd is that, while G-Girl's hair turned blonde with her new powers, Hannah's hair actually turns from blonde to redhead]].
** Justified, because [[spoiler: HeroesWantRedHeads]].
** It seems the power turns redheads blonde and blondes into redheads.
* EvilFormerFriend: Prof. Bedlam.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Guy dates a super-girl. Guy breaks up with super-girl. Super-girl is angry. HilarityEnsues!
* EyeBeams: On lower settings, they're useful for FaceDoodling. Nothing wrong with shooting people in the head, right?
* FanServicePack: An effect of the GreenRocks.
* FingerSuckHealing: Hannah sucks on Matt's finger to remove a splinter.
* FlyingBrick
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Subverted when we see Matt and Hannah have sex, [[spoiler: after Hannah gets superpowers, in exactly the same way as Matt and G-Girl used to have sex.]]
* HarmlessVillain: Professor Bedlam. He's never seen doing anything overtly villainous, making his status as a supposed supervillain almost something of an InformedAttribute. While he ''does'' leave Matt dangling off of the Statue of Liberty, considering he intended for G-Girl to rescue him, it makes it obvious that he knew he was never in any ''real'' danger at all.
** Likewise, the only person he's implied to have tried to kill is G-Girl, who is completely ''invulnerable''.
** If anything, it is heavily implied he became a "super villain" just to get her attention.
* HeroicComedicSociopath
* HypocriticalHumor: Carla. Throughout the film, she practically considers men as always sexually harassing women, and pushing for the woman to file a complaint against the guy despite the guy doing nothing. During the credits, Carla goes up to a male employee and grabs his butt.
* JerkAss: Jenny. Seriously.
* [[strike:KickTheDog]] [[KickTheDog Burn The Fish]]
* KryptoniteFactor: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]. G-Girl's "kryptonite" comes from the same meteor that gave her her powers in the first place.
* MadScientist: Professor Bedlam.
* MagicMeteor
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Lampshaded.
-->'''Professor Bedlam''': Please, I am not super. I am not a villain. I'm just a regular man like yourself with 10,000 more money, intelligence and taste.
* MostCommonSuperpower: Exposure to GreenRocks made G-Girl [[BreastExpansion grow a few cup sizes]].
* MundaneUtility
* NighInvulnerable: Even her hair. [[FridgeLogic One wonders how she gets it cut]].
** [[FridgeBrilliance Her heat vision?]]
* ObliviousToLove: [[spoiler:G-Girl thought she and Bedlam drifted apart after she got her powers when really her newfound popularity caused her to unwittingly ignore him. He became a supervillain to get her to notice him again]].
* PunchclockHero: G-Girl appears to have become a superhero simply because that's what you do with superpowers, rather than out of any apparent heroic urge or instinct.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: with SUPERPOWERS!!!
** {{Yandere}} - and a super-powered one at that.
* RightThroughHisPants
* RomanticComedy: [[RecycledInSpace With superheroes]]!
* SassyBlackWoman: Carla, in a weird pseudo-StrawFeminist sort of way.
* ShamuFu: Again, G-Girl threw a ''LIVING'' shark at her ex. [[DisproportionateRetribution That'll]] learn 'em!
* ShapedLikeItself: One character describes G-Girl as "spinning like a spinny thing."
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Professor Bedlam's real name is '''B'''arry '''Ed'''ward '''Lam'''bert.
* SuperSpeed
* SuperStrength
* SuppressedRage: When Matt first mentions "needing space", Jenny's OK with it...until he mentions dating other people, when she slams the knife she is chopping carrots with into the board. [[spoiler: And then frighteningly, bends it with her bare hands]].
* ThreateningShark: When G-Girl turns on Matt, she throws a shark at him. [[SuperPersistentPredator It almost kills him, despite his apartment being on dry land.]]
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler:Professor Bedlam]].
* [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility With Great Power Comes]] [[AvertedTrope Petty Revenge]]
* {{Yandere}}: Uma Thurman's character vows to destroy the protagonist's life after he breaks up with her.
