The Ex ★★ Fast Track 2007 (PG-13)

Tom (Braff) loses his job after his wife (Peet) quits hers to raise their first child. To save the family, he moves them from New York to Ohio to accept an advertising job with his father-in-law. Then he discovers that his new boss is a wheelchair-bound paraplegic who had a one night stand with his wife in high school, and has been obsessing over her ever since. Plays like a mean sitcom, but without the laughs that would normally accompany black comedies. Although it might make you squirm like one. 90m/C DVD .
