    “The Break-up” Movie makes me remind something that happens in real life, hehe it’s a nice movie and the cast was very supportive… and they got 2 awards and 5 nominations…

    This movie was just awkward and painful to watch. It was almost exactly like having 2 real friends going through a messy split-up, only with this movie, you have to witness all of the bitter, nasty, petty behaviors during the relationship's end rather than just hear about them second-hand.

    I like Vince Vaughn – although he has become something of a one-trick pony – and really like Jennifer Aniston, but I'd never endure this movie again.

    Yeah… I found Vaughn funny enough in that holiday movie (Four Christmases) but not enough to warrant dropping ten bucks for Couples Retreat in the theater.

    Really liked Aniston in The Good Girl and Friends With Money; such a contrast to see her bored out of her mind in Marley And Me. I've got “Management” in the queue but don't have my hopes up.

    Ugh. Just watched “Management.” Disappointing.
