Simply Fantastic

Honestly, I was completely shocked by this film. I didn't see it in theaters because it honestly didn't look like the type of film I would typically find appealing. But when the DVD was released, I snatched it up in a hurry because my wife loves romantic comedies. And that's exactly what we thought we were going to get. Instead we got a poignant, heartfelt and almost painfully realistic piece of insight into the psychology and calamity of two people struggling to hold onto something they never had ahold of in the first place: love.

First of all, I must say that Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston were absolutely fantastic. I'm a huge fan of Vince's and I've enjoyed Jennifer in most of the films I've seen her in, but I've never appreciated either of them as much as I did in The Break-up. Their acting was directly on-target. The initial fight scene (when the break-up actually occurs) was so phenomenal I actually paused the movie when it was over just to take it all in. I've never seen two people on screen portray a 'lovers quarrel' so accurately and realistically. Hats off to Jen and Vince for an outstanding performance.

The movie definitely has its funny moments. Vince brings his usual fast-talking wit to the screen and that's an instant recipe for comedy in my book. But what I really took from this movie, as someone who is in a committed relationship and understands (as well as the average person can) the complexities of love, was its underlying message. Love is not all moonlight and roses; it's not always romantic, it's not always fun and it's sure as hell not always easy. But hard work, dedication and a solid foundation of love and respect can bring two people through just about anything together. This movie is absolutely brilliant and I'd recommend it to anyone, but especially married couples or people in committed relationships.

Great movie

I only have 3 "steps" in rating a movie. 3 stars - loved it, kept me awake, had fun, ate a lot of popcorn 2 stars - barely kept me awake and it was boring for me 1 star - the last transformers the last knight :))

I give 3 stars to this one, great story, realistically illustrated, looks great, sounds great, fantastic acting, maybe the soundtrack could've been better. Overall great movie to watch at night, makes you think when you go to sleep :). Girlfriend/wife friendly, tho it might bring up some unsaid stuff so be aware :)

Accurate depiction of an American relationship

The current situation in America has been summed up well by this movie. Relationships are completely one sided. Yep, I said it. You women are spoiled rotten. Let's review here. A guy doesn't want to do the dishes. His girl retaliates by doing horrible things to him. She kicks him off his bowling team and makes him walk out of the bowling alley 1/2 naked. Try reversing those roles! This movie clearly shows that women can be pure evil to a man and it's okay because she's a girl. Nonsense. She then has him attacked by her brother in his own home. He retaliates by not wanting to be in a relationship with her anymore. She responds by being meaner and meaner to him in an insane attempt to fix the relationship. Insanity! They then both parade other lovers in front of each other and in the end the guy still somehow wants the woman. This movie sums up the incredibly lopsided state of relationships in America. This movie is a sad statement of affairs in this country.
