Mildly amusing but far too timid.

Though Bateman rolls through the film with sly comic skill, the whole exercise seems half-baked -- a high concept and some funny gags that do not a great comedy make.

Braff has a natural likability, but the screenplay gives him so many stupid, far-fetched and annoying things to do that The Ex loses credibility quickly.

What if Zach Braff acted in one more quarter-life-crisis movie, and instead of Sundance it went straight to video? If only that's what had happened to The Ex.

It's good to have Grodin back onscreen after an extended absence; it's just a shame it has to be in this dreary graveyard of wasted opportunities.

Delayed, re-titled and presumably at least partially re-shot, Jesse Peretz's troubled office-bound romantic comedy The Ex is as half-baked as you'd expect it to be, but the better half -- the office half -- really does cook.

It's really pitiful.

Depending upon your perspective, The Ex is either too offensive to be funny or too stupid to be offensive.

It's a pretty twisted concept, bordering on offensive. But mostly it's just not funny.

The Ex is shrill when it means to be irreverent. It's frustrating to see the lead performers squandering their collective talent in a movie that fails to match the fun and pathos of their TV work.
