Day 121

Movie: The Ex
Starring: Jason Bateman, Zach Braff
Genre: Comedy
Year: 2006
Format: TV EDIT

Plot: When a new dad looses his job, he ends up working for his father in law and his wife's ex boyfriend at an ad agency.  Soon all hell breaks loose in the office.

This might have been a really funny film about paranoia and one-upmanship, but it just fell flat.
I'd like to say it was missing something because it was a Television edit, but it was just not as good as it could have been.
The jokes were formulaic and shallow, and there just didn't seem like much chemistry with the on screen pairing.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Jealousy will get you nowhere
