This Zach Braff bomb makes it obvious why the guy was a front-runner to replace Chevy Chase in the Fletch franchise. Braff is prone to mugging and is so over the top here that it becomes mighty grating at times. He plays a cook who loses his job and must take up employment with his father-in-law (Charles Grodin, back from movie limbo) at a strange ad agency where the ex-boyfriend (Jason Bateman) of his wife (Amanda Peet, a good actress in yet another bad movie) also works. The Bateman character is in a wheelchair, so Braff must walk on eggshells during a rivalry for Peet’s affections, so as to not appear insensitive. This leads to all strains of wacky wheelchair humor. It all comes together in a film so vile, so unfunny and so ugly, the words “Zach Braff” will likely cause a gag reflex in me for years to come.
