THE BREAK-UP MOVIE PAGE




BREAK-UP, The(2006)


Guy meets girl. Guy wins over girl. Girl decides she wants
the guy to change. He doesn't get it. They break up. Really
not too bad of a movie.

From Amazon.com:

The combined star power of Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers,
Swingers) and Jennifer Aniston (Bruce Almighty, The Good Girl)
makes The Break-Up a high-profile romantic comedy. Gary
(Vaughn) and Brooke (Aniston) find that their brittle relationship
may have reached the breaking point--but neither is willing to
give up the condo they co-own. As their fighting grows increasingly
bitter, neither is sure if they're fighting to get out of the relationship
or to save it. The Break-Up is an odd combination of realistic scenes
that capture the harsh yet human ways that lovers can hurt each
other, and broad comic scenes with a more farcical edge. Both types
of scenes are entertaining on their own terms--the movie is never
boring--but they don't fully mesh, and as a result it's hard to engage
emotionally with either Gary or Brooke. But the sterling supporting
cast--including Jon Favreau (Wimbledon), Cole Hauser (The Cave),
Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy), John Michael Higgins (A Mighty
Wind), Justin Long (Dodgeball), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development),
Vincent D'Onofrio (Happy Accidents), and the ever-delirious Judy
Davis (Husbands and Wives)--give every scene they're in a boost
of comic energy. An uneven but enjoyable movie that may suffer
from viewers having overly high expectations due to Vaughn
and Aniston's celebrity. --Bret Fetzer
