...may be fluff, but it is patient, character-driven fluff.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Digresses into that hazy zone where we're not sure if we're watching overwrought drama or a joke that just isn't funny.
| Original Score: 2/4

it's all very silly and highly unbelievable, but the five main leads are all having a good time.

With a little more polish, Daniel Taplitz's quick-witted romantic comedy might have lived happily ever after.

A good cast tries to rescue a bad script.

Breakin' All the Rules doesn't break any rules at all. It's just a by-the-numbers romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

...the comedy never tried to stretch beyond being common.

Everybody involved in Breakin' All the Rules -- especially the audience -- deserves something more than this tedious excuse for a movie.

All the performers deserve better than this.

sticks to the rules of too many lame sitcoms and unfunny comedies past, which the doomed actors follow like lemmings off a cliff
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

If one movie could prove once and for all that dating is a blight on humanity, this dismal, depressing flick could be it.

... this is basically just a sitcom.

Breakin' transcends cliches thanks to Jamie Foxx's irreverence and charm
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Angela Baldassarre
May 17, 2004
Laden with misunderstandings, contrived situations, and terrible characterizations. Even Foxx's charisma can't save this one.
Beth Jones
Roanoke Times (Virginia)
May 17, 2004
Foxx , Union, Chestnut and MacNicol deserve to be A-list stars much more than any Tom (Cruise), Dick (Gere) or Halle (Berry).
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
May 17, 2004
A black-cast romantic comedy that derives its humor from character and plot development rather than from cliched notions of race-based uproariousness...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Jackie K. Cooper
May 16, 2004
Foxx and friends are broken by this laughless comedy
Full Review| Original Score: 3/10
Dustin Putman

How is Breakin' All the Rules different from all the countless other romantic comedies specializing in misunderstandings and mistaken identities? It isn't.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

May 15, 2004
A leaden daisy-chain of mistaken identity that holds the interest of the characters much longer than it does the audience's in watching it or mine in explaining it.
| Original Score: C
