Movie Info

Based on a two-character play by Michael Cristofer (who also wrote the screenplay), Breaking Up is an odd sort of love story about a couple who aren't sure what to do about their relationship. Steve (Russell Crowe) is a photographer and Monica (Salma Hayek) is a schoolteacher. They're in love, but their emotional bond is so intense it borders on manic-depressive -- at any given moment, they're either deliriously happy with each other or so frustrated they're ready to call it off for good.

Uneven action, flat acting, and a narrow plot that leaves little room for empathy.

Crowe was at the screening of the movie and I wished someone would have asked him "How could you do this movie after doing LA Confidential?"
