Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) is a career underachiever who bounces from one job to the next, always getting fired or quitting for silly reasons, while his wife Sofia Kowalski (Amanda Peet) is a formidable lawyer and the breadwinner of the household. However, with a new baby on the way, Sofia has chosen to become a stay-at-home mother, forcing Tom to get with the program and start paying the bills. When he gets fired yet again on the same day Sofia gives birth, Tom decides to take up Sofia's father on a job offer in Ohio… working for an advertising agency that he's been at for 30 years. So, they pack up and move from New York to Ohio… but it doesn't take long for Tom to start clashing with his new boss Chip Sanders (Jason Bateman) who used to have a thing for Sofia in high school (he was on the cheerleading team with her). Soon, Tom and Chip are in an all-out office war and Tom's job is on the line. Meanwhile, Sofia likes the stay-at-home thing less and less and both of them are becoming increasingly miserable. So they must somehow find a way to get back to their old selves and be happy again.
I'm sure this movie will draw a crowd of "Scrubs" and "Arrested Development," but it's really a bland movie. The writing and the jokes are not of the caliber you'd find on those TV shows. The script is mediocre at best and I think the actors did what they could with the material, but it just wasn't very entertaining. Most of the jokes were aimed at Chip's disability (he's in a wheelchair, paralyzed form the waist down) and just didn't have the bite that jokes are supposed to have. I think I may have chucked once during the movie, but that's about it. Overall, I really don't have anything good to say about this movie, so I'm just going to recommend steering clear of this box office stinker... save the $10 and wait for the DVD if you absolutely must see it.
All in all, I'd give this movie 1 STAR (out of 5). Re-watch value: NONE (all the talent was wasted in this movie).
