loved it
29 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

you know,i really liked this film.the plot concerns a mentally disturbed woman,(Yancey Butler)who attempts to ruin her her architect ex husbands family an life,after realising he doesn't want anything to do with her.he happens to be happily remarried with a 5 year old son.the biggest reason i liked this movie is Yancey Butler.i really like her as an actress.i thought she did a very good job playing a psycho.it seemed she really had fun with the role.i liked the movie itself,as well.it won't get any points for originality,but so what.there are some great moments of tension and suspense and some real nail biting moments.i also liked how explosively violent Deidre(Butler)becomes when killing or injuring her victims.this is one movie i didn't want to end.i enjoyed it that much.i give "The Ex" 9/10
