Common Sense Media

Not much worth seeing in this mess of a movie.

...may be fluff, but it is patient, character-driven fluff.

Mark Collette
Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Digresses into that hazy zone where we're not sure if we're watching overwrought drama or a joke that just isn't funny.

| Original Score: 2/4

Sean the Movie Guy

it's all very silly and highly unbelievable, but the five main leads are all having a good time.

Boulder Weekly

With a little more polish, Daniel Taplitz's quick-witted romantic comedy might have lived happily ever after.

A good cast tries to rescue a bad script.

Breakin' All the Rules doesn't break any rules at all. It's just a by-the-numbers romantic comedy.

...the comedy never tried to stretch beyond being common.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Everybody involved in Breakin' All the Rules -- especially the audience -- deserves something more than this tedious excuse for a movie.

All the performers deserve better than this.

sticks to the rules of too many lame sitcoms and unfunny comedies past, which the doomed actors follow like lemmings off a cliff

If one movie could prove once and for all that dating is a blight on humanity, this dismal, depressing flick could be it.

Breakin' transcends cliches thanks to Jamie Foxx's irreverence and charm

Angela Baldassarre

Laden with misunderstandings, contrived situations, and terrible characterizations. Even Foxx's charisma can't save this one.

Roanoke Times (Virginia)

Foxx , Union, Chestnut and MacNicol deserve to be A-list stars much more than any Tom (Cruise), Dick (Gere) or Halle (Berry).

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A black-cast romantic comedy that derives its humor from character and plot development rather than from cliched notions of race-based uproariousness...

| Original Score: 2.5/4

May 17, 2004
Jackie K. Cooper

Foxx and friends are broken by this laughless comedy

Dustin Putman

How is Breakin' All the Rules different from all the countless other romantic comedies specializing in misunderstandings and mistaken identities? It isn't.

Full Review Source: | Original Score: 2/4

Nell Minow
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

A leaden daisy-chain of mistaken identity that holds the interest of the characters much longer than it does the audience's in watching it or mine in explaining it.
