When his lawyer wife, Sofia (Amanda Peet), becomes pregnant, chronic underachiever Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) must take a job at his father-in-law’s advertising firm. Tom has to adjust to the demands of a very high-powered job, and he finds himself in an increasingly hostile office rivalry with Chip (Jason Bateman), Sofia’s paraplegic former lover.
