In an interview with Creative Screenwriting magazine, the screenwriters, David Guion and Michael Handelman, virtually disowned the film. Guion said "That movie was a bit of a cautionary story for screenwriters in terms of that it was a movie that struggled a little bit and didn't test well initially, and the financiers panicked and said, 'We better show a lot of people getting hit in the balls' It was unfortunate because the director, Jesse Peretz, is great and very talented, but the movie was ultimately taken out of his hands."

Q
Why is it called "Fast Track"?
A
"The Ex" was only the USA title.
Q
What are the differences between the PG-13 Version and the Unrated Version?
A
The two US versions differ a lot: in the Unrated version there are missing scenes which are contained in the PG-13 version. The other way around, the Unrated version contains scenes which are missing in the PG-13 version. Surprisingly the PG-13 version is longer in total than the Unrated version. Moreover there are almost no new explicit scenes in the Unrated version. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.The German Version does contain some more scenes during the end credits and again one can find a detailed comparison here.
