Breakin' All the Rules

Critics Consensus

This formulaic screwball comedy is weighed down by a contrived, overly complicated plot.

Audience Reviews for Breakin' All the Rules

  • Feb 15, 2010
    Jamie Foxx and Gabrielle Union headline a very funny romantic company. The chemistry between these two is genuine. "Breakin' All The Rules" is a film about mistaken identities gone wild. While the relationship between Foxx and Union is predictable...how the other relationships turn out are not...making you stick around until the end. The movie doesn't waste time...starting out with Foxx's character Quincy getting dumped by his girlfriend. Quincy then writes a successful how-to book on breaking up and that sets off a chain reaction that will keep you in your seat until the end.

    A romantic comedy with good looking leads (Foxx, Union, Chestnut, Esposito, and Lawson), some farcical complications involving relationship break-ups, but not very intelligently written.

    The story is half decent, although I think a lot of these films, waste time on film which is just modelling shots. So they found it tough to fit the rest of the story in. But it works, no complaints. Funny !
