Whatever might have been raunchy-cute has been edited out of it. It's a movie with a lot of very good-looking people trying to find something funny to say or do.

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.

Not much worth seeing in this mess of a movie.

While bland and generic, the title certainly is fitting.

... this is basically just a sitcom.

You wouldn't think a movie with this much plot could be this dull, but you'd be wrong.

The results are at once unfathomably complex and staggeringly uninteresting.

Breakin' All The Rules has moments when it is very good, but it doesn't maintain that high level throughout the movie.

True love draws blood, or so the film's awkward metaphor goes. Breakin' All the Rules leaves little more than a hickey.

The personable, good-looking cast helps things along somewhat but Daniel Taplitz's script falls short of success.

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

The best screwball comedies seem to breathe helium, but this one never gets airborne.

The laughs are supposed to come from the mix-ups ... but this stuff is so attenuated and idiotic, it makes even less sense than is the norm for such flyweight workouts.

It follows all the rules of comedic plot convention, with only an occasional ripple of surprise.

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

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