The Break-Up Reviews

Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

The Break-Up is a funny and light comedy, but it tries to be something a bit more without being something a bit more, hampered by shoddy characterization, ending up a bit empty.

The two stars remain painfully wrong for each other

Is anxious to be a modern "Annie Hall," but really it is just a tedious, glum, and god awful affair.

"The Break-Up" comes with a slap and a kiss that's at once bracing and pleasing.

A word of caution to anyone heading off to see The Break-Up with the assumption that it is a romantic comedy: this is not a comedy movie with a serious side -- it is a serious movie with a comedic side.

Stereotypes across the board, puerile one-upmanship games, and an utter failure to explain why, indeed, these two even were together.

Projection Booth

High-aimed intentions are thrown askew by the reliance on inconsistent laughs seemingly meant to break the otherwise overriding tension.

Right up there with the best of the revenge genre, and earns praise from this critic for its sophisticated brand of humor which kept me in stitches from start to finish.

Not even the tacked-on ending, hinting at some future sparks between Brooke and Gary, can lighten the sturm und drang in this break-up.

..."The Break Up" may go down with "Fatal Attraction" as the worst "date" movie of all time.

Now Playing Magazine

There's nothing broken about The Break-Up, which turns rom-com conventions on their side in free-wheeling fashion, and in doing so colorfully, wittily celebrates what it is about men and women that both attract one another and drives us crazy.

A romantic comedy that is neither romantic nor particularly funny.

[I]t combines a naked desire to please the audience with a try-anything approach of the kind that made Wedding Crashers such a desperate stab at entertainment.

It's still very much a quick and painless Hollywood production, what slight genius there is in its premise dulled by the sheen of the high production values and its prettier-than-pretty cast.

It's never less than entertaining and the chemistry between our two leads, whatever their personal circumstances, really holds things together.

This is that branch of the romantic comedy known as 'a relationship movie', but generally short on witty lines and amusing incidents.

The Break-Up doesn't turn the rom-com on its head, but with its focus on the darker side of love manages to gently tip it on its side.

Sharp dialogue and detailed observations make it a good deal funnier than you might expect.
