Crap Movie of the week

While the MPAA is desperately trying to curtail our ability to entertain ourselves, they expect us to shell out 10+ bucks to see crap like The Breakup. If you haven't yet seen this movie, please don't. If you have, you should immediately proceed to your nearest DVD player and cleanse your pallet with something much more worthwhile.

I just wonder why anyone felt we needed to see this movie? Two extremely dislikeable characters behaving abominably, which results in both of them being unhappy. Breaking up is likely the best thing in the world for both of them, and you're left feeling like you wasted your time watching it happen. The few bits of humor that we enjoy are limited to Vince Vaughan being Vince Vaughan, and a few jokes about gay people who like to sing.

While I agree that the best comedy often comes from pain, the pain is supposed to be inflicted on the characters, not the audience.

it is a pretty bad movie but the only bonus many people found was that supposedly it was mirroring reality more than other love stories
