The Ex 2007 90 PG-13 2.5 out of 5 ducks
Tom and Sophia are married living in New York, and expecting their first child. Sophia is a successful lawyer and Tom is a slacker who goes from job to job. They agree after the baby is born, Sophia will be a stay at home mom and Tom will stay at one job. The day baby Oliver is born, Tom gets fired. Tom decides to accept a job with his father-in-law, Bob, at his ad company in Ohio. Tom starts work as an assistant to Chip, Sophiaís ex from high school, who's now in a wheelchair. Chip is still carrying a torch for Sophia and does everything he can (using his disability to his advantage) to undermine Tom. Tom tries everything to get the wife and in-laws to see what is really going on, but they all think Tom is just jealous and picking on Chip. Tom comes up with a winning ad for a client and Chip takes all the credit when they present it to the client. Tom finds out that Chip is waiting to hear back on his dream job with a company called Idea in Spain and arranges for his friend to call Chip and lead him to believe he has been accepted for the position. Through a series of mishaps, Tom (through Chipís antics) gets Bob fired and Sophia leaves him. Chip rushes over to let Sophia cry on his shoulder, but she lets him know she's not interested. Chip heads home and Tom is waiting for him and they end up fighting, during the fight, Chip stands up and tells Tom that he has been faking being disabled since he was 14 to get chicks. Tom heads home and the next day goes to the coffee shop where Sophia is meeting with Chip and asks her to believe him when he says that Chip is lying. Sophia says she believes Tom and then Chipís phone rings and it is the supposed VP (Tomís friend) from Spain calling to arrange his flight. Chip asks Sophia to come with him and she says no. Chip says whatever, stands up and walks out. While standing in front of the coffee shop with his wheelchair above his head taunting Sophia and Tom, he gets hit by a bus and breaks both legs and actually needs the wheelchair now. Tom and Sophia move back to New York, Sophia goes back to her high paying lawyer job and Tom opens his own ad agency and brings baby Oliver to work with him; Chip ends up in Spain with his wheelchair and no job.

In the unrated DVD, Chip remains cripped, with the walking photo being that of his now-dead brother; he ends up in Spain, but they don't reveal the prank until the near end of the film.
