In Manhattan, Sofia's an attorney and Tom's a cook who has a hard time holding a job. When their first child is born, they agree that she'll be a full-time mom and he'll get a promotion. When he gets fired, he takes a job in Ohio working at the ad agency where her father is assistant director. Tom's assigned to report to Chip, a competitive, hard-driving guy who's in a wheelchair and who's Sofia's ex-boyfriend - from high school. Chip still carries a torch for her, so he connives to make Tom's work life miserable. As Tom's frustrations mount, it may be that Sofia will take Chip's side. Is Tom doomed to fail yet again?

I think the main actors in this flick (Zach Braff, Amanda Peet, and the totally wasted Jason Bateman) were the only thing that was even somewhat decent about this terrible attempt of comedy. I have seen better episodes of "Arrested Development" than this. If you are looking for a couple chuckles and plan on forgetting it immediately, this is right up your alley. If want to see an actual funny comedy, there are many others that are worth while. Bateman is pretty good, but you can be the best in the biz, but with a crummy script, no one can save it. A lot of the little bit parts are somewhat amusing, but hardly worth watching.
