Movie Info

In this hip-hop oriented comedy, Mitch Mullany plays a guy living in Oakland, California, who's having a really bad day. Of course, the fact that he's one of the only White people living in his neighborhood doesn't help -- especially since he goes out of his way to "act Black." The Breaks features cameo appearances from NBA star Gary Payton and legendary funkmaster George Clinton.

Audience Reviews for The Breaks

Malibu's Most Wanted meets Friday. (To be fair, this movie came out before Malibu's Most Wanted.) It feels like it goes on forever... Despite its 90 minute-length, it's 45 minutes too long.

I watched 20 minutes of this and gave up. It's not funny, it's just racist and stereotypical and ignorant. Too bad, because I liked Mitch Mullany, and I thought it might be nice to see him in something besides Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher. I was very, very wrong. This is a complete and total waste of life.

This is kinda like Malibu's Most Wanted, only it doesn't suck... as bad. It's goofy, but it has some laughs.
