Movie Summary

Director:
Jesse Peretz
Released:
2009
Rating:
Not Available
The Ex is a touching story of a couple that has it all until a baby comes into the mix. Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) and Sofia Kowalaski (Amanda Peet) are exact opposites, but somehow this works for their relationship. They are great together; Sofia is a successful attorney at law and Tom is a slacker cook who slides from job to job without a care. Sofia discovers that she is pregnant and volunteers to stay home with their child, which means that Tom will have to support the new family all on his own. Like always, Tom gets fired and has to take a new job in Ohio. This puts Tom and Sofia in the same town where Sofia had a semi-serious relationship with Chip (Jason Bateman). Chip decides that he wants Sofia back and makes life for Tom at his new job as hard as possible. Will Tom be able to keep Sofia or will Chip prevail?

Metacritic Score

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    The best jokes in this scattershot screwball satire of job insecurity, upward mobility, political correctness and yuppie marital tensions have claws that leave scratches.

    Variety

    A half-baked comedy torn between sincere emotion and over-the-top outrageousness.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    Originally titled "Fast Track" when it was scheduled to open last January, neither the wait nor the new title makes it worthwhile. The only fast track here is the one to home video.
