Movie Info

Harvard-educated biotech executive John Henry "Jack" Armstrong gets fired when he informs on his bosses, launching an investigation into their business dealings by the Securities & Exchange Commission. Branded a whistle-blower and therefore unemployable, Jack desperately needs to make a living. When his former girlfriend Fatima, a high powered businesswoman--and now a lesbian--offers him cash to impregnate her and her new girlfriend Alex, Jack is persuaded by the chance to make "easy" money. Word spreads and soon Jack is in the baby-making business at $10,000 a try. Lesbians with a desire for motherhood and the cash to spare are lining up to seek his services. But, between the attempts by his former employers to frame him for security fraud and his dubious fathering activities, Jack finds his life, all at once, becoming very complicated.

Critic Reviews for She Hate Me

All Critics (103) | Top Critics (48)

Ten minutes into She Hate Me I knew it was a bad film, 20 minutes in I knew it was offensively -- to its audience -- poor, 30 minutes in I began to wonder how it was that the producers hadn't pulled the plug on it when they saw the rushes.

She Hate Me isn't subversive, it's insipid.

June 28, 2013 | Full Review…

This extremely graphic movie is not for kids.

December 28, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The politest way to assess Spike Lee's latest polemic is to call it too ambitious. 'An unholy mess' might come closer to the truth.

October 19, 2004 | Rating: 0.5/5 | Full Review…

Attractively cast and at times amusing, but it's undermined by a plot that doesn't make sense and plays like three-and- a-half genre movies fighting for screentime in one overlong one.

September 25, 2004 | Rating: 2/5

If this is a subtle inversion of the sex wars it passed clear over my head as Anthony Mackie grunts his way through five ecstatic women a night

Audience Reviews for She Hate Me


Spike Lee tries to mix strawberries with mashed potato. It doesn't work

Spike Lee is aiming for too many things here, in some is a hit, in others are a miss. The first half builds up around the usual relationships stuff, then the second half forgets about the first and goes into a socio-political-commentary rampage. Also the movie depends on just way too many wishifull thinking and "happy coincidences" to work properly and be convincing. If only Spike cut it off the political stuff, his movies would be actually a lot better. John Turturo's character, and all his dialogues and scenes were like if Spike was doing a parody of Do the Right Thing.

Aloha, Spike, what is up with this? No worry, shrimp curry, I've had some dry spells myself.
