Storyline

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?

Can compete for Worst movie of 2006
8 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie doesn't move anywhere plot-wise. Everyone apart from the guy which is disabled seem to range from dumb to very dumb.

Tom's in-laws are very naive. Tom isn't intelligent either. Most of the people lack common sense. His wife never supports him and Tom doesn't does anything to improve his life either at work or at home. i feel i wasted 100 minutes of my life by watching this movie.

NEVER watch this movie, unless you have NOTHING, by nothing i mean it. Even staring out of your window can be an interesting thing to do than watching this movie.

NEVER NEVER watch this movie.
