YMMV / My Super Ex-Girlfriend

  • Designated Hero: The protagonist is both selfish and lacking in empathy for how the stress of her job has made G-Girl the neurotic mess she is. G-girl herself can also count when she's not fighting crime.
  • Designated Villain: Bedlam, before he makes a Heel–Face Turn at the end. He is stated to be a Super Villain and G-Girl's Arch-Enemy, but despite this we never see him commit any crime nor fight G-Girl for most of the movie. His only "villainous" act is to de-power G-Girl, who by this point has been established as a terrible superhero and a Psycho Ex-Girlfriend.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: See Designated Hero above and Unintentionally Unsympathetic below.
  • Foe Yay: G-Girl and her archnemesis, Professor Bedlam. They end up as a couple when Matt convinces Bedlam to confess that he's in love with G-Girl. Interesting, considering the aforementioned Superman-Lex Luthor parallel...
  • Karma Houdini: G-girl commits several crimes and receives no punishment for them; her Domestic Abuse of Matt, property damage (destroying Matt's car) and several counts of attempted murder (against Matt), one of which (her stunt with the live Great White Shark) also included animal cruelty and killing an endangered species - Great Whites were declared protected in 1999, when the movie is set in the early 2000's.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Some women see G-Girl as a character to look up to.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Those who root for G-Girl to come out on top in the end instead of Hannah.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: This is due to the fact Matt breaks G-Girl's heart and doesn't show much concern about the fact depowering her will probably result in many innocent people being killed. His lack of concern about her and treating their relationship as It's All About Me also hurts any chance of us taking his complaints seriously. There is also the fact he casually dumps Uma Thurman as Supergirl so many audience members were confused, even if she is a neurotic mess.
