The Break Up starts where most romantic comedies end: after boy and girl have met, fallen in love, moved in to start their happily-ever-after… and right when they wind up driving each other crazy.

Pushed to the breaking-up point after their latest “why can't you do this one little thing for me?” argument, art dealer Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vince Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics. Overtures and underminings suggested by the former couple's friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to movie out of the condo they used to share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves.

But somewhere between protesting the pool table in the living room, the dirty clothes stacked in the kitchen cupboards and the sports played at sleep-killing volume in the middle of night, Brooke begins to realise that what she may be really fighting for isn't so much the place but the person.

Another 'love' story - but with a slight difference - the couple are trying to break up. I found it really frustrating, and wished they'd just get themselves sorted. The ending seemed unfinished -... Read more

This movie was a huge let down. I was expecting a light-hearted comedy with some pretty accomplished funny people. I was wrong. This was not funny, and was just constant snickering between the two,... Read more

It was OK. Not really that funny. A lot of silly arguments and behaviour. The ending was not your typical predictable, happy one, which would have been OK if the main story line was stronger.

Didn't really enjoy it - too much arguing & a silly ending.

Good Rainy day movie. Vince is hilarious. Great Movie to watch with alongside your male partners - if they are lazy.

Although this movie had some good points, it was too negative and argumentative overall. I prefer to spend my time watching something with with a worthwhile plot or a story that is more uplifting.

Let me make it very clear. This is not a romantic comedy. It has been marketed as such which is a huge mistake because this is a much better movie than I expected it to be. It is literally about... Read more
