Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) has a hard time holding onto a job. When he or a fellow employee is treated unjustly, Tom emphatically states his opinions on the matter and he, invariably, finds himself on the street. Unemployed.
Married to Sofia Kowalski (Amanda Peet), a successful lawyer, the two decide to have a baby since Tom seems to be happy in his latest job as a cook. No such luck as Tom loses his job on the same day Sofia quits hers to have the baby.
With limited choices, Tom and Sofia decide to take Sofia’s dad’s, Bob (Charles Grodin), offer of employment and move from NYC back to Sofia’s hometown.
At the new job, Tom’s new supervisor is Chip Sanders (Jason Bateman) who also happened to date Sofia back in the day (and she still seems to like him). To make things even worse, Chip is a total asshole as he uses his disability (he is in a wheelchair) to gain favor and sympathy.
Chip also wants Sofia back and will do anything to get her.
“The Ex” is a fun, light, movie. No Oscars here, but, a solid, accomplished, cast.
Worth a few bucks and a couple of hours.
