We gave it an D-

Zach Braff calls this black comedy ”a mesh between the sensibilities of Arrested Development and Scrubs” — which makes sense since Development alum Jason Bateman costars as Chip Sanders, a wheelchair-bound scoundrel using dirty tricks to win his high school crush (Amanda Peet) from her irate husband (Braff). And despite a scene where he throws the disabled guy down a flight of stairs, the Scrubs star has no concerns about tarnishing his good-guy image. ”Luckily, Chip is a real d—,” says Braff. ”He’s a d— in a wheelchair — but he’s still a d—.” (May 11)
