    Although a half decent performance from Jennifer Aniston, the film is a complete waste of supposedly good actors who try to not be cliche by having an opposite of a romantic comedy and then it goes cliche, and lacks in laughs and good performances. I give this movie 47%.

    Hard to hate anything Vince Vaughn is in .. for me at least. Good humor there :) Jennifer Aniston is ok but barely. Great flick if you want some VV sarcasm and laughs!

    Vince Vaughn is fantastic as usual but he and Jon Favreau are the only positives about The Break-Up. It truly still puzzles me how Jennifer Aniston continues to get roles. She consistently plays the same detestable character in every single movie she's in and makes the films almost unwatchable. Sure, she's attractive but it's not like she's a supermodel or anything and her personality is atrocious. Fans of Vaughn will at least get some decent humor out of a few scenes but that's about it.

  1. Audiences expecting a good time will instead be rewarded with wildly unsympathetic lead characters and uncomfortably long stretches without a laugh in sight.

    Sporadic rays of sunshine emanate from the broad and gifted supporting cast, but the core story is almost relentlessly unpleasant, like sitting through a dinner party where the host couple does nothing but bicker.

    A routine, stereotype-stuffed sitcom with pretensions.
