    Default The Break Up

    Got this move from netflix yesterday so I watched it last night. Overall funny movie and 2 funny endings(main one and alternate). Jennifer Aniston is good looking as usual.

    Definately worth the quick watch seeing two people who broke up trying to live together and bring new dates to the same condo......definately had me laughing.

    Not much else to say, watch the trailer.

    Not a bad flick. I caught this one on a flight back from Amsterdam. Long flight and I watched 3 movies. I did not get to see the alternative ending but I liked the regular one.

    Spoilers


















    I cound not help but laugh when VInce's character got home from work and said he needed to unwind. He then started playing GTA San Andreas and the camera showed the game as the player got out of a car and beat a guy to death with a baseball bat. Vince was saying "get some" during that scene.

    Reminds me of the Venom household.

    Haha, yea. I liked when he decided it was the right time to bring in a pool table and move the dining room table out of the dining room and into the living room.

    Ugh, I didn't really like this one.

    Way too much time spent on fighting, like actual yelling back and forth, which just really grates on my nerves, evne when it's sprinkled with some comedy. We've all been in these situations where you're fighting with an irrational woman and no one needs to see it recreated on screen ad nauseum. The story itself wasn't anything special, it was mostly predictable and kind of boring to me. There wasn't as much sappy chick-flick stuff as I expected, but that didn't make it any good. The only thing that kept it in the sea of mediocrity was some of the comedy. And Aniston, of course.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I actually thought it was pretty good as it gave a fairly balanced perspective of each side of the argument.

    My wife just heard alot of yelling and pretty much has the same opinion of bobman. (except in her story it was fighting with an irrational man :) )

    My vote is that it is at least worth a rental - I would not recommend a blind buy on it though.

    Exactly why I Netflixed it. Seeing her in bed on the cover had me sold. :D Could have cared less about the relationship aspect of it since I haven't been in even a semi-serious relationship since the end of high school/first month of college.:o

    Jon Favro (shortest way to butcher his name) had a decent cameo. . . especially where he's claiming that Vince's lady's cheating on him, and threatens to kill the other guy.

    Good stuff.

    My wife was laughing her at ass at that part saying it was me. I'll admit, thats pretty much what happens at my house too.

    Very good movie. I've watched it twice.

    Yep! But they neglected to show any of the goods . Vince's head got in the way of the camera. :(

    This movie was HORRIBLE! Sorry but I chuckled a few times when Vaughn's doing his thing on the bus but that's about it. It wasn't funny, it went nowhere and Aniston is the only reason to watch it.

    I heard that the nudity shot of her wasnt actually her boobs. I guess I would have to feel them to be sure but I thought they were hers. )I havent actually seen the movie yet, only the picture that was on break.com that was from that movie.)
