Life After Ex is a new romantic comedy about searching for love after a gay divorce. Set in the months before the Supreme Court ruled to legalize same sex marriage nation-wide, Dylan Holm must put his life back together after his partner leaves him. However, Dylan is unable to file for a divorce, even though he and his partner were legally married in Iowa, because the state of Nebraska never recognized their marriage. Because of this, Dylan must move to Council Bluffs, Iowa, for a year to establish residency so he can file for divorce there. As Dylan begins to put his life back together and finds a new boyfriend, the Supreme Court rules to make same sex marriage legal all across the U.S.A. Now, Dylan is free to file for a gay divorce and remarry, but things aren't what they seem, and once the truth is revealed, Dylan is finally able to find happiness and true love at last. Written by F. Coppola

Just awful.. Stay away!
16 April 2018 | by natureparkSee all my reviews

All the positive reviews must be spam. Trust me. This movie is just awful! Bad acting by everyone and the lead actor is just awful. 10 minutes into the movie, I realized it was bad and it kept getting worse. I was laughing through the whole movie but it wasn't a comedy.

The lead actor is not easy on the eye with zero personality and it's hard to believe multiple gay men are falling for him. Everyone in this movie should take at least a year worth of acting lessons and I am sure the director was drunk or high. Stay away unless you are in the mood to watch something truly abominable.
