The Break-Up Reviews

  • Sep 03, 2019

    Kind of what you'd expect from a Jennifer Aniston movie. The plot is two incompatible people quickly grow to hate each other, then nothing really happens after that. They bicker, they get petty revenge on each other. Most of the movie is filler that the author though was clever. The man is in the wrong of course and the woman is perfect.

    This was one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. Save yourself all the bad feelings and stay away from this movie. The worst part is the movie is full of great actors. If they were going for romantic comedy they missed it. There was nothing remotely funny about this movie.

    A fairly cynical rom-dram-com, The Break-Up is kind of sloppy and mean, but also maybe slightly underrated? Creepy politics aside, Vince Vaughan IS capable of a strong dramatic performance, and he demonstrates it here (re-teamed up with his Swingers buddy Jon Favreau for some reason). But by far the person who steals the show is Jennifer Aniston, whose acting chops have probably never been put to better use than here. I take issue with Vince Vaughan's appeal, or lack thereof, but otherwise this is a solid movie.

    A rom-com in total, exaggerated reverse like a battle of the witty sexes with the passionate meaning intact but only because the whole thing was ridiculous from the start, which might be a positive effect to reasonably give you the mental urge to break up with it. (C)

    This movie refreshing strays away from the norms of a typical ï¿ 1/2~rom-comï¿ 1/2(TM). Vince & Jennifer have good chemistry, spar off each other in the movie and keep it moving at a decent pace. I particularly liked the ending (SPOILER ALERT) and that it didnï¿ 1/2(TM)t conform to the ï¿ 1/2~happy-ever-after-together-foreverï¿ 1/2(TM) ending usually given. It reflected the real issues of break-ups often found in life, but adding some humour along the way to avoid the film being a truely accurate, depressing portrayal!

    An all time favorite romantic comedy. The characters organically portray all too real scenario in relationships.
