Audience Reviews for The Break-Up

  • Dec 02, 2011
    This film was awful, one of Jennifer Annistons worst. When a couple can't stand eachother anymore, they break up but both refuse to move out. The plot was very boring, we all know what happens at the end, and it wasn't a fun ride. The cast was horrible, Vince and Jennifer spent just two hours yelling at eachother and I maybe chuckled twice at them. The jokes were completely terrible, because there is none, in fact this is like 40% horrible comedy and 60% crappy drama. Even though I hated this, their scenes where they are fighting are very real situations that couples fight about. This movie was boring, unfunny, and even with a few interesting scenes, I never found this movie any fun and it completely sucked.

    It didn't deserve such negative reviews, for it is a decent comedy. My favorite scene was between Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau in the bar towards the end.

    Just a movie about a couple who keeps yelling at each other after break-up. Some might not like this movie as it's nothing new to watch. But it's actually taken from reality and most of the parts are really true. They tried to add a bit of comedy in it but I didn't find any of those scenes to be funny. It's an okay type of movie. But I wouldn't spend money to watch this movie that I can tell.
