The Ex (2006) Fim Review

51kBFVM6XDL._SX200_QL80_

When Sofia (Amanda Peet) has their baby, Tom (Zach Braff) is forced to face up to the fact that continuing in life getting fired from one job to the next while attempting to write his second novel – that’s not going to take care of the family. So they return to her home town, to her parents Mum (Mia Farrow) and Dad (Charles Grodin) and he starts to work at the advertising company with her dad. Little does he know that he will be working with Chip (Jason Bateman), the horrible, wheelchair ex of Sofia’s.

The cast goes on – there is Josh Charles, Fred Armisen, Amy Poehler I mean really, the director or casting agent or someone must have had some serious favours owing to them to get such a great cast for such a stinking pile of poo. This is one terrible film. It doesn’t work on a humour lever, it doesn’t work for drama, it just does not work. So disappointing – and I got about three-quarters of the way through before I realised that I have seen it before – so no only is it not good, it’s also not memorable.
