I love this movie because one I like chick flicks and two it is a smart and sassy flick. Jamie Fox is great and so is Gabrielle Union.

The movie is about a man (Jamie) who is dumped by his girlfriend and writes her a letter which in turn becomes a novel. Everyone loves his book and wants his advise even his cousin and boss. When trying to help his boss his cousin gets in on the plan yet Quincy (Foxx) doesn't know that his cousin is pretending to be him and that everyone is getting further into the game. Quincy is falling in love with his cousin's girlfriend which also adds to the mix of things. This movie is a good comedy and is all about breaking the rules of romance. I liked this movie and watch it when I am in a chick flick mood.

Breakin' All The Rules is a mediocre-to-fun movie made more than serviceable by its awesome cast, which include Jamie Foxx, Gabrielle Union, and the gorgeous Morris Chestnut. Jamie Foxx stars as Quincy, who has been unceremoniously dumped by his girlfriend at their engagement party. When layoffs loom at his job, his boss asks him to research the science of firing employees--and Quincy discovers that the manner in which he was "fired" by his girlfriend was all wrong. Research leads to Quincy penning a runaway bestseller on how to break-up with your lover--chock full of theories tested out by cousin and best friend, Evan (Morris Chestnut). When Evan suspects that his current girlfriend Nicky (Gabrielle Union)is about to break up with him, he sends his cousin Quincy to plead his case. Mistaken identity ensues.....and the two become romantically involved. What follows is a hilarious tale of romance gone awry.....great fun!!

I really enjoyed this movie. I wasnt expecting much because I knew of no one who had seen the movie prior to myself. Now though I recommend this movie to any one who enjoy's intellectual black humor.I really appreciate Jamie Fox taking comedy to another level. For those who enjoy more than your modern day black exploitation films you'll be pleasantly surprised.

To tell the truth, I enjoyed "Breakin' All the Rules." It is one of those romantic comedy where nobody knows who anybody else is, and you know that everything is going to be alright at the end. But sometimes that could be alright in the plot is good. That is exactly why this is a good movie. It has a good story, and it has alot of witty dialouge. It isn't a masterpiece, and it's not going to be on my Top 25 of 2004 list at the end of the year, but it is pretty good. Jamie Foxx is the star of the movie, and I never really saw him act before. I never saw his television show, or any of the movies that he made. He was good in this, and that could be a good sign for his next movie "Collateral" starring Tom Cruise.
Jamie Foxx plays Quincy Watson. He works with his cousin Evan at spoil magazine. Quincy gets a new job from his boss Philip, where he has to fire people. He gets dumped by his girlfriend on that night that he was going to propose to her, and that causes him to quit his job, because he realizes that getting dumped and firing people are one of the same. He insteads writes a book. A break-up handbook on how to do it, when to do it, where to do it, why to do it, etc. It is a bestseller, number one of the list, and soon he is being asked by Philip on how to break up with his girlfriend Rita, who married people for their money. Even then gets the idea that his girlfriend Nicky is about to break up with him, so he decides to have Quincy go to a specific place, and talk to her about him. He has never met her, and she got a haircut from the last time Even saw her, making her look like Halle Berry. Quincy talks to her, thinking she's somebody else, and the two start a relationship of some sort.

Jamie Foxx & Gabrielle Union are magnetic.

Breaking up with someone is always a difficult thing; especially when the person being dumped isn't ready for the relationship to be over.

But this film gives some great tips on how to do it and get out of the person's house in one piece. I just hope my woman doesn't use them on me! I would be seriously hurt! LOL!

Fun film! One tip though, park your ride in your garage at all times!

Qunicy Watson, after being unceremoniously dumped by his fiancée, pens a "how to" book on breaking up and becomes a best-selling author on the subject. Not wanting his male friends to suffer the same fate, he gives them advice on dumping their mates. A comedy of errors ensues. "Breakin' All the Rules" has some genuinely funny moments. It's not a classic but most of it is quite enjoyable. It sticks to the main point.

Breakin All the Rules is a good movie. Very funny at times, a lot of laugh out loud moments, a good storyline, and great/believable chemistry between Union and Fox. And the pug did a great job also!! It's always great to see a good love story - especially one involving African American main characters.

I'll give it an "A" for effort. Though not flawless, this movie is not disappointing and should be given a try.
