Critic Reviews of "The Break-Up"Time OutJuly 20, 2006
Sharp dialogue and detailed observations make it a good deal funnier than you might expect.Wall Street JournalJune 22, 2006
It's not a good sign when a movie is called The Break-Up and you can't wait for the couple to split so they'll get some relief from one another, and give the audience some relief from them.New York ObserverJune 21, 2006
One seemingly terminal problem with the casting of Ms. Aniston and Mr. Vaughn is that neither of their careers has featured characters who excelled at one-to-one relationships with the opposite sex.Ebert & RoeperJune 05, 2006
Vince Vaughn kills me. Jennifer Aniston, I think, is underrated as a film actress.San Francisco ChronicleJune 02, 2006
The movie offers nothing funny, just a series of sour situations.Seattle TimesJune 02, 2006
The Break-Up, a grim excuse for a romantic comedy, is basically an hour and 45 minutes spent in the company of two unpleasant people during a miserable time in their lives.ComingSoon.netJanuary 07, 2011
The Break-Up is a funny and light comedy, but it tries to be something a bit more without being something a bit more, hampered by shoddy characterization, ending up a bit empty.CinePassionAugust 30, 2009
The two stars remain painfully wrong for each otherCinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Is anxious to be a modern "Annie Hall," but really it is just a tedious, glum, and god awful affair.ColeSmithey.comApril 23, 2009
"The Break-Up" comes with a slap and a kiss that's at once bracing and pleasing.BrandonFibbs.comFebruary 28, 2008
A word of caution to anyone heading off to see The Break-Up with the assumption that it is a romantic comedy: this is not a comedy movie with a serious side -- it is a serious movie with a comedic side.eFilmCritic.comAugust 11, 2007
Stereotypes across the board, puerile one-upmanship games, and an utter failure to explain why, indeed, these two even were together.
