Film review: The Ex

5 11 2007

I love Zach Braff. Let me just get that out of the way. I was ready to love this film too. I was not disappointed. The main three characters were perfect. Zach played the slightly unfortunate, cute, principled Tom to perfection. Amanda Peet did a great job as his attractive, smart wife. Jason Bateman, however, stole the show as the insidious, sneaky, down-right mean ‘ex’, Chip, who is in a wheelchair. There is nothing complex about this film but it was hil-arious. It had all the cringeworthyness and eventual comeuppance that you could ask for. If you haven’t seen it, you should (but if someone throwing a disabled person down the stairs might offend you, you’d be best to give it a miss). The blooper reel is worth a watch too!
