I went out and caught The Break-Up last Friday. Would have rather have been skiing, but things didn’t cooperate so I hit the theatre. Took some slack for it from my buddy too. Anyway, back to the movie. My main reason for seeing is it looked like it might be a little bit of a continuation of Swingers, kind of taking up the character of Trent (played by Vince Vaughn) several years later.
Saying it is like Swingers is doing a little disrespect to just how good Swingers was. Now for those of you who don’t know, Swingers, in my opinion is the one and only Guy Flick. Now the ladies in the world have hundreds, if not thousands, of Chick Flicks to choose from. Us guys have one. Luckily, we have a great movie to pick from since our list contains only one choice.
Now back to The Break-Up. Yes, it is a little like Trent’s life a few laters, but it is nowhere near as good as Swingers, but it is just a little bit enjoyable. Just enough where it was worth watching. There is another pretty good video game sequence, once again not as good as the sequence in Swingers, which is the definition what a video game movie sequence should be.
BTW, Jennifer Aniston is in the movie as well, and that never hurts.
