      "EXterminators" explores the possibility that if you put a bunch ofangry, violent women, in the same room, something bad might happen. Infact something worse than bad happens to cheating husbands, as a fourlegged pest control business becomes the front for "two legged vermin"extermination. Although the outrageous screenplay of"EXterminators" isfertile ground for "black comedy", only occasional scenes display darkhumor, the best being shopping for lethal weapons, while casuallydiscussing an eggplant recipe on the cell phone. The clever plot neverreally blossoms, because everything is too restrained. Simply put, fora supposed "black comedy", this is a rather toothless effort. – MERK

      This is by far one of the funniest and under-rated films I have seen inrecent years. Jennifer Coolidge rocks as usual and she makes this filmwhat it is. She is just funny with meaning to be or at least in a veryunpretentious way. I love all these girls and have watched this movieover and over. The soundtrack also compliments this movie completely.This is a movie that doesn't go stale or off in left field like most dohalf way through. The story offers continuous laughs and keeps yourattention. It has some very surprising takes along the way and keepsyou guessing what's next. These girls are my hero's and this film wascast in absolute perfection as each one plays their roles perfectly andgives this movie a sense of reality. These characters all pull offtheir roles in a way that doesn't at all seem scripted but like you'rewatching an actual everyday happening. Thanks to everyone involved inthis movie for offering such an entertaining and comical movie that Ihope will gain all the recognition it deserves. My hat's off to thesewomen.

      So let me say this clearly, this movie isn't a classic, it's not agreat movie and the story is bit ordinary BUT this is a fun movie towatch.

      The story really starts with 3 drunken women following the violentboyfriend of one of their friend and ending up causing him to die in acar crash… Then the word gets out and their start a business ofkilling ''jerks'' what bothers me about that is you never know for sureif the guy really is a jerk of if the girl is just insane and in theend the 3 girls get away with several murders as the main charactermarries a cop… which makes for a funny very naive story good forpeople who doesn't ask too much questions and don't mind some not quiteguilty people getting killed or a good Sunday afternoon movie. Iwouldn't even say that women who lived with real jerks would find anyechos of their feelings in that movie, so if you decide to watch itwatch it for what it is a not so dark comedy with a weak story butenjoyable to watch.

      "ExTerminators" is about a woman named Alex (Heather Graham) who lovesto help out people. This could be the reason why she married a man thatshe supports and doesn't work. One day, Alex comes home from work tofind her husband cheating on her. Without any explanation needed, thisends the marriage leaving Alex feeling bitter and upset. A few weekslater, Alex is at the grocery store and while shopping a random maleapproaches her and takes the pie that Alex was planning to purchase.Alex informs the man that she was going to buy that pie. The guyresponds by stating, "I don't see your name on it." Upset by theresponse, Alex punches the guy and is of course, arrested. Alex now hasto attend an anger management class. This is where she meets Stella(Jennifer Coolidge) and Nikki (Amber Heard), who have their history ofanger issues pertaining to men. What happens next has to be seen to bebelieved but the three women go into business to become theExTerminators.

      "ExTerminators" is terrible title for a film. I get the fact that it'ssuppose to be funny because its a play on words. If you read the titleand get the little gag in the title than you will figure out exactlywhat the film is about. Its a film about a group of women who go aroundand terminate the exes of various women who pay them to do so. I guessif the film had the right director and writer on board it could havebeen a pretty funny film but instead it turned into something that Ifeel I would see on Lifetime.

      The first problem I had with the film was that it made every male inthis movie out to either be a jerk or completely clueless. That elementalone made this film feel like a Lifetime movie. Alex's husband is auser and a cheater, another guy is a woman beater, and all the othermen in this film are all the typical college guy stereotypes who justgrab female asses. Even the good guy in this film was portrayed asstupid. I understand this is a film about strong women but seriouslynot every guy is an ass or an idiot. Don't insult my intelligence likethat. I would pose to even question what kind of guy would cheat onHeather Graham? The woman is freaking beautiful with an amazing body. Idon't really get that. If your going to make a film about someonecheating why not make Jennifer Coolidge the main character, becausethan it would be a bit more believable but that's just my take.

      The next issue I had was the whole subplot of the film, which involvedan IRS agent by the name of Hutt (Sam Lloyd). You see Hutt wasinvestigating Stella's business, which ironically is a exterminatorbusiness. She kills bugs for a living. As it turns out, Hutt now beginsto investigate Stella and and the rest of the girls. One would arguethat this is all part of the story and adds something to it. Ipersonally found it to be rather silly and the twist in the end seemedalmost too simple for its own good. It wasn't as crafty as writer,Suzanne Weinert intended it to be. As the story develops everythingjust seems to simple and unexplained. Why doesn't anyone look into whyall of a sudden this anger management class keeps getting a ton of newmembers each and every week. Why are the cops so stupid? It's threewomen who are killing men left and right but yet no one can figure thisout? I am sorry but that's a bit of a stretch. The cops didn't evenreally investigate through the film.

      I actually liked Heather Graham in this role. I think she did a decentjob even though the script was weak and the characters weren't wellwritten. I personally thought it was really silly to try to make herlook ugly by giving her huge glasses from the 50's though. What theheck was the director thinking? Who makes fun of people who wearglasses anymore? Seriously, what is this… the 70s? I don't get it.Anyway, Graham did all she could to survive the role. As for Coolidge,she was alright as well. I think she plays a good drunk and bitterex-wife. Amber Heard was unrecognizable in the film and was good in therole even if she was a bit too over the top at times. I don't know whythey made her into such a psycho but would guess she was the perfectopposite of the character Graham played. The acting by the leads wasdecent however all the smaller supporting roles were horrible includingthe guy who played Hutt. Just bad supporting roles all around…

      At the end of the day, "ExTerminators" is a direct to video film thattruly deserves the title. While the film's premise could be funny, itfails to produce any real laughs. The direction is sloppy and thewriting is poor. Graham, Coolidge, and Heard do all they can to helpmake the film watchable but sadly due to the poor character developmentthey couldn't do much. It's no shock to me why this film went right tovideo because it would have failed in theaters as a feature film. Itssad to see movies like this sometimes because you can see where if itwere in the hands of another writer or director it could have been 100times better. I will give it some points for the premise and for thedecent acting job by the three leads but other than that I would haveto tell you to skip this one because it's definitely a stinker.

      MovieManMenzel's final rating for "the ExTerminators" is a 4 out of 10.

      I'm going to start with the positive. I really didn't recognize AmberHeard. The same Amber who were so great in "All the Boys love MandyLane" and should have been recognizable. Was it the colour of her hair,that made me not realize it was her? Whatever it was, she was reallygood in her role.

      On the other hand, this tries to ground itself into reality while beingcompletely fantastical. Like the idea behind this or not, it is notwell "executed" though (no pun intended). The twist almost saves themovie, though if you really think about it, it could also make themovie redundant. Depending on how you feel about it. While it mightspeak to the mind, heart and soul of some (women), this still is weakrealization of an idea, with lots of clichés

      I think the movie has real potential. Hilarious in many places throughout the film. I loved the cast and the idea behind the script! Musicselection could have been better, but that's what the screening processis all about. Great to see they used Texas as the main location, itbrings some diversity to the movie industry and shows that Texas doeshave a lot to offer for the filming industry. Jennifer Coolidge made melaugh as she always does and up coming star Amber Heard really workedwell with Coolidge. Heather Graham was a delight as always to see inthe movie. She seems to always be able to bring a sense of familiarityto every film she's in and had the pleasure of meeting Sam Lloyd fromScrubs and had to say his acting was superb as always. He brought afunny yet ironic inside look portraying an IRS Agent. Hope to see it intheaters soon!!!!
