DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic - While being billed as a romantic comedy, this is a little more hard-edged and darker in its humor. The vibe is more along the lines of Vince Vaughn's big-screen comedies than Jennifer Aniston's gentler TV humor--though fans of both stars will find plenty to enjoy here.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Unfortunately, The Break-Up fails to satisfy on any of the many levels on which it could have succeeded. It's an uneven mess with a confused tone. The number of scenes that work are dwarfed by those that don't, and some nice acting by Aniston is wasted. The Break-Up is too badly fractured to be deemed repairable.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average That Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are such likable actors compounds the problem. They're not convincing as sadistic meanies, and when the movie makes them act that way, we feel sorrier for them than for their characters.

USA Today Full Review
Average The Break-Up is not comical or romantic, and it's certainly not a date movie. Sitting through it is almost as painful as going through the demise of a relationship.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on an exit polling of 202 moviegoers. Teens, both male and female, really enjoyed "The Break Up." The twentysomething male opinions aren't terrible, but they certainly aren't great. Most are in the "average" to "above average" range, which is somewhat low.

Teen and twentysomething females thought it was great. I would highly recommend this movie to them. As for the adult females, some loved "The Break Up" but many only rated it as "average," to "below average." So, for adult ladies it's a toss up. Fortunately, only a few actually disliked it so chances are most of you will enjoy it, at least to some degree.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Pushed to the breaking-up point after their latest "why can't you do this one little thing for me?" argument, art dealer Brooke (Aniston) calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics, overtures and under-minings suggested by the former couple's friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to move out of the condo they used to share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves. 

But somewhere between protesting the pool table in the living room, the dirty clothes stacked in the kitchen cupboards and the sports played at sleep-killing volume in the middle of night, Brooke begins to realize that what she may be really fighting for isn't so much the place but the person.
