The Break-Up (2006)
USA / English
". . . pick a side.
"In a bid to keep their luxurious condo from their significant other, a couple's break-up proceeds to get uglier and nastier by the moment.
Not what I expected at all.
The Break-Up tells the story of a couple that start off pretty happy,
their lives seem good, they're in love, and they live together.
However, when what could have been a small argument explodes into
attack after attack, they decide to break up. Then the real fighting
begins. Both of them want the apartment, and neither is willing to back
down. This movie has one of the most misleading trailers in history,
making it look like your average Vince Vaughn comedy, when it reality
it is 75% dramatic.
I seriously can't stand it when a trailer makes a film look like
something it's not at all. This film was made to look like a laugh out
loud comedy that would have you grabbing your sides through the entire
film, but when you actually watch it, it's funny at the beginning, and
there's a few parts here and there, but mostly it's a depressing look
at relationships and break ups. The fights they have are actually very
realistic, and not funny at all, as the trailer would have you believe.
I'm actually on the fence about this film, because it wasn't what I
wanted to see, and yet it was still well made and had some really good
Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston do very well in their roles, and
everybody else in the film does a good job as well. The funniest
performance comes from Justin Long as Jennifer Aniston's flamboyant
Overall, the movie is good if you're expecting a dramatic film with
some comedy thrown in, so take this as a warning. If you're expecting
non stop laughs, you will be let down. The movie is well made and has
really good performances, but because the trailer was misleading, I
ended up being disappointed.
