Editorial Reviews

Tom (Braff) and Sofia (Peet) have just had their first baby and that means it is time for Tom to grow up. But, when Tom goes to work for his father-in-law, his new boss Chip (Bateman) seems to have it out for him. Tom soon discovers that Chip is still carrying a flame for Sophia from their high school days. Now, Chip will stop at nothing to see Tom out of the company and out of Sophia’s life. As the two go head to head, Tom must expose Chip’s dirty tricks and push him out of the picture forever.

I love Zach Braff. Tis the reason my anticipation to see this film was so high. Garden State and The Last Kiss were both amazing movies but I wanted to see him play a character like JD from Scrubs. You know, the kinda wacky, really funny, guy. Enter The Ex.

In no way is this the greatest or funniest movie you'll ever see, let's get that straight right now. And honestly, your enjoyment of this movie will probably be based solely on whether you like Zach Braff or Jason Bateman since they're the primary characters. Everything about this movie is predictable, there's no surprises and I think that that's one of the best things about The Ex. It doesn't try to be something it isn't. However, there isn't that tired 'boy gets girl/boy loses girl/boy gets girl back' scenario which is a good thing.

Tom (Braff) and wife, Sofia (Peet), move to Ohio after their son is born to try and start anew, thanks to a job offer from Sofia's dad. That's when Tom meets Chip (Bateman), a handicapped guy who is gonna be acting as his mentor at the new job. You can guess what happens next and probably be right.

The thing that keeps The Ex funny throughout is far and away Tom and Chip's fued. I'm sure that's why everyone who heard about this movie wanted to see it, and it's just as funny as I thought it'd be. Now you may think differently. Past that, there are some memorable scenes, but only fans of the actors in it are gonna remember this film. Worth the money though.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the version you want. August 28, 2007
IF YOU SAW THE EX IN THE THEATRE AND LOVED IT, THIS IS THE VERSION YOU WANT! THIS IS THE VERSION THAT WAS SHOWN IN THE THEATRE. The unrated version has a lot of material cut out, including a lot of character development and stuff that made the movie funny in the first place. This PG-13 version is 5 minutes longer than the unrated. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that this rated version is available in widescreen at this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Theatrical Version... not so much the DVD August 23, 2007
I really liked this movie when I saw it in theaters.. it made me laugh and not very many movies can do that. So when I bought it I was all excited about watching it again. The DVD version is nothing like the movie I saw at the theater. They cut all the good parts out!!! I want them to release a theaterical release version so I can have the movie that I thought I bought originally.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic! September 7, 2007
As much as I love Zach Braff and Amanda Peet, I really thought this movie was a bust. I would have given it 1 star except for the two of them. This is a very dark "comedy," and most of the movie is rather depressing as Braff goes from one predicament to another. You feel sorry for him rather than wanting to laugh. Jason Bateman's character is really too diabolical for a comedy, and the constant pratfalls are just not funny. The movie seems to miss its beat somehow. The concept is sort of cute, a guy whose boss just happens to be his wife's ex, but the movie is more like a foray into an evil and disturbed alternate universe than the side-splitting hilarity I was expecting. I would not recommend this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars "The Ex" Does Not Mark The Spot June 7, 2007
It's never a good sign when filmmakers can't figure out what to call their films. This one was originally marketed under the name of "Fast Track" (the defunct title also shows up in the end credits -- whoops!), indicating that it's about the hijinks to be found in the corporate zeitgeist. Then the name was changed, ostensibly to draw focus to the alpha male struggle that makes up much of the plot.

Such card-swapping doesn't make much difference. This movie, by any other name, would smell just as stanky. Zach Braff, donning a personality as interesting as acetate, plays Tom Reilly, a recently fired chef who gets a job at his father-in-law's advertising agency. Also employed there? His wife's sorta-kinda-ex-boyfriend, Chip, who also happens to be a passive-aggressive wheelchair-bound jerk.

So, let's see ... the advertising milieu means lots of commercial gags, we have an upwardly-mobile careerwoman stuck playing homemaker in suburban Ohio ("Look at all the white people," Tom says when they first drive into town), Tom is working for his father-in-law (a wealth of material there, even if it is dusty), and look at that cast! Zach Braff, Amanda Peet, Jason Bateman, Charles Grodin, Mia Farrow, Donal Logue, Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, Paul Rudd, Romany Malco. I love all those folks! On paper, this looks like it has the potential to be a great movie.

Maybe they should've written some more stuff on that paper, though. Like a coherent plot, or funny jokes, or creative character struggles, for example. Instead, we have pratfall after pratfall, lots of "cripple jokes," and a kid who can swallow an entire hamburger without chewing once.

3.0 out of 5 stars THIS ISN'T THE VERSION OF THE MOVIE YOU ARE WANTING!!! September 8, 2007

The unrated version has MOST of the funny parts cut out and the ending isn't the same or as good. i wish i read the reviews for this version before i bought it but i didnt. so hopefully i have saved yall from buying the less funny version of the movie like i did.

1.0 out of 5 stars A lot of great people in a pretty terrible movie.
The movie was awkward, but not in that sympathetic, "I've been there" way. It managed to be cringe-worthy and boring at the same time. Read more

Do not waste your time with this movie. There are important and hilarious scenes cut out for some reason. The movie seems to just end abruptly without conclusion to the plot.
