was mostly shocked by Vince Vaughan, who showed me for the first time that he wasn't the long-delayed immature frat boy he so often plays, but actually an imperfect hilarious, yet often silly, character who's main flaw is his selfishness.

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 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.

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.

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 little broken, but worth the viewing.

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.
July 22, 2006
It's never less than entertaining and the chemistry between our two leads, whatever their personal circumstances, really holds things together.

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.

While consistently funny, The Break-Up deals in bitterness and revenge, sometimes in ways that cut closer to the bone than most fluffy romantic comedies.

Tende mais a drama com toques cômicos %u2013 e se você entrar no cinema compreendendo isto, certamente terá muito mais facilidade de se envolver com a história.

Delivers something worthwhile to those open-minded enough to be able to settle with wild shifts between average satire and grounded pathos

Every bit as unpleasant as it sounds. But the film's intentions are to examine a separation, and the story achieves its set goals.

Oh, did you want to see a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy? Life isn't always about Hollywood expectations; let's cut Jennifer some slack and enjoy her doing good work.

In an era of formulaic romantic movies that bear no resemblance to reality, The Break-Up offers a refreshing flipside.
June 11, 2006
It's frustrating, but it's real.

This is a tragedy with laughs, not a comedy.
