Revealing mistakes:
After G-Girl's tornado tears off Matt's clothes in the boardroom meeting, the rear shots of him are visibly more muscular – obviously a body double.


[over the phone]

Matt Saunders:
What's going on there?

Vaughn Haige:
Some big fire on 73rd and Broadway. Everything's burning.

Matt Saunders:
Is anyone hurt?

Vaughn Haige:
I don't know, probably. It's blocking my way to the gym.

Matt Saunders:
All my thoughts are with you in this time of crisis.

User Review

Look, It's G-Girl!

Rating: 7/10

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 ..
