Story


Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) is a bit of an underachiever when it comes to his career (or lack thereof), but his adoring wife Sofia (Amanda Peet), a formidable lawyer, has always been happy to act as the breadwinner. With the birth of their first child, Sofia decides she wants to be a stay-at-home mom so Tom needs to step up and take care of his growing family.

Unfortunately he gets fired from his job in New York City and is forced to start working with his father-in-law (Charles Grodin) in Sofia's hometown of Ohio. Tom soon clashes with his work colleagues, especially the outrageous Chip (Jason Bateman), who still carries a torch for Sofia from their high school days, and Sofia becomes increasingly uncomfortable staying home with their new baby. But in a comedy about doing the right thing for all the wrong reasons, the couple needs to get back to what they're good at before their model family goes completely off track.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..plays like an ex-movie..”
by Michael Sragow [Baltimore Sun]
“..the humor in The Ex is sit-com in nature - mild, juvenile, filled with pratfalls, and not especially funny..”
by James Berardinelli [Reel Views]
“..it's not just bad, but perversely bad..”
by Dr. Frank Swietek [One Guy's Opinion]
