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 performances.

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 fellow employee.

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.
