1599 - The Ex
It's the story of a man whom moves his family back to his wife's hometown only to find himself competing against a former flame. The biggest problem with this film is that it features a rivalry over a woman who has her own opinions and can not be won. Secondly it just really feels kind of 'meh'. There is a fun 'couples therapy' sequence in the middle of the film, but other than that not really any great solid laughs. I liked Braff, Peet, and Bateman as always, it's just a shame that they didn't have stronger material to play off of. This is by no means a terrible film, it's just not something I can passionately recommend. Good rainy day watching.
