Quick movie review: "The Break-Up"

The Break-Up: As a drama, it was just okay. As a comedy, it wasn't all that funny*. Even the score - composed by Jon Brion, whose work I love - wasn't anything special. Overall, very blah. However, it was good seeing Mikey and Double Down together on screen ten years later. The highlight of the film would have to be seeing Joey Lauren Adams again. Still nice.

Independent of each other, both my mother and grandma said I looked like Vince Vaughn. I think it's the hair and sideburns.

*The TV spots make it look like a light comedy, but it really ain't. Just a warning.

This movie was definitely a dud, though there were some funny bits with Vince and Favreau together again

There definitely was some laugh out loud stuff, but the last 20 minutes of the movie were awful. It was good to see Ralphie from A Christmas Story back though.

Reel Fanatic - I wouldn't go so far as to say it was a dud, but it wasn't great.

GMadrid - Holy crap! I didn't even recognize him.
