The Ex

Acclaimed music-video director Jesse Peretz made his third feature with this comedy starring Zach Braff and Jason Bateman. Tom (Braff) is an aspiring chef whose wife Sofia (Amanda Peet) has just quit her high-paying job to stay home with their new baby. When it becomes abundantly clear that they can no longer maintain their New York City lifestyle, the family picks up and moves to Sofia's hometown in Ohio, where Tom is hired to work at her father's ad agency. It is there that Tom meets Chip (Bateman), the agency's wheelchair-bound golden boy, who also happened to have a one-night stand with Sofia while the two were cheerleaders in high school. Suddenly, Tom finds himself sabotaged by Chip at every step as the nefarious paraplegic schemes to steal Sofia from him and destroy any chance he might have of success at the agency. Released briefly in 2006 under the title Fast Track, the film was retitled The Ex before receiving a wide release in the Spring of 2007.

Though this movie has been given some bad reviews, I found it very funny, with some romance and a little drama. Zach Braff is a great actor, he is able to be extremly funny and also very serious. It is a good movie for a light, fun watch. I recommend it.

This movie tried hard to be funny, but the jokes fell flat and the jumpy, erratic script distracted from the acting, which was not bad. The scenes felt like they were thrown together in editing. It didn't feel like a complete film. The acting was as good as it could be with what the actors had to work with. Jason Bateman was great as a thoroughly evil troublemaker, but the place where they worked was so obnoxious that it was difficult to get over it. The scenes with Amanda and Zach were good. They had great chemistry. My husband and I both thought their scenes together about childbirth and the baby were very realistic, refreshingly so. But that couldn't help the rest of this one. The movie totally wasted the immense comic talents of Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen. Sorry, Zach! Love ya, but you need to write them before you star in them.
