Jesse Peretz in The Ex

The Ex

2006 UR

Tom Reilly is an underachiever. But when his pregnant wife, Sofia (Amanda Peet), decides to quit her demanding career as a well-paid, high-profile attorney and become a stay-at-home mom, he's forced to step up to the plate and become the family breadwinner. Reilly takes up a job at his father-in-law's (Charles Grodin) ad agency, where he must report to Sophia's irritating ex-boyfriend (Jason Bateman), who still carries a torch for her.
