10/25/2007 12:46pm EDT
Sklar Brothers - Sklar Maps
Less than a year after they taped the final episode of ESPN Classic's Cheap Seats, which did for sports what Mystery Science Theater 3000 did for bad movies, The Sklar Brothers

have released a comedy album and filmed a web series about a web series called Layers , where they play publicists for an agent (Nick Kroll) who represents other agents.

Movie Review: 'The Ex' Is A Flat, Desperate Comedy

5/10/2007 3:04pm EDT
The Ex
The Ex isn't so much a movie with a plot as it is a filmed series of situations in which Zach Braff a) injures himself, b) humiliates himself, or c) both.

Borrowing early and often from Meet the Parents and You, Me & Dupree, this desperate comedy finds Braff starring as bumbling straight man Tom (sorta like his role on Scrubs), who always manages to say and do the most painfully awkward things around his wacky in-laws and co-workers, people with whom he's never in sync.

Most of these moments involve Chip (Jason Bateman), the chipper high school boyfriend of his wife, Sofia (Amand...
