Editorial Reviews

Monica teaches, Steve's a photographer. They've dated more than two years. They're arguing, and she leaves for her apartment, only to return in a few minutes to say they should stop seeing each other. A few days later, they're back together, but within two hours, he takes offense at an off-hand remark, and the separation starts in earnest. They see other people, then, out of the blue, Steve asks Monica to marry him. She says yes, and a time of ecstasy begins: they interview strangers, asking them what makes a marriage work, and she moves in with him. Then comes the wedding, and when Steve freezes, anger rends the relationship again. Can harmony return?

This has to be one of the worst films I've ever seen.
June Johns
I am sorry to say that this movie is a waste of time and money to watch, purchase, rent...whatever.
T. L. Fentress
The characters in this film did nothing to endear themselves to me.

The adverse reaction to the movie by other reviewers makes me wonder. This movie ran alot like an independent film, and these types of films are not for eveyone. If you have ever been in a relationship that is full of fire but that cannot withstand the unfortunate weaknesses of human character, then you will understand, and quite possibly, as I do, think this was an excellent movie that was about real life. Not every movie should be larger than life, don't you think?

Hey guys, give this poor little flick a break! In the first place, if you are a Russell Crowe fan, I think you'll just like watching him because, darlings, he's at least half of what's on the screen at a given time. Yes, many of the criticisms in the other reviews are valid, but my husband and I...married 38 years this summer...saw ourselves all through the movie. (He cried at the ending.)I think anyone who's been in any kind of long-term relationship could get something from it. Okay, the "talking to the screen" bits are annoying. I felt the "man-on-the-street" interviews were relaxed but went on a bit too long, yadda, yadda, yadda. This will not be on anybody's list of top 5 or even top 100 ever, but any movie where Russell Crowe licks someone's toes has to be worth a look-see and given a little slack!

I saw this movie as a Russell Crowe fan and found it to be quite realistic in depicting the ups and downs of a sexually charged relationship. Sometimes the characters' quarreling gets to be too much, but the end results are worth seeing.

Breaking Up is a movie either loved or hated by everyone who sees it. No one is indifferent. It's the story of a very dysfunctional, pain-filled, sexually charged relationship between two people, Steve and Monica (Russell Crowe and Salma Hayek, both still a few years away at this time from major stardom) who don't have the emotional maturity to handle their sexuality in a responsible fashion. They have great sex, savage each other emotionally, break up, come back together, have more great sex, beat each other up some more, break up...until they're both hurt so deeply they just can't hack it anymore. If you've ever fallen into this category, you're going to love this movie because you'll see yourself in the characters. Or you're going to hate this movie because you see yourself in the characters. Breaking Up is frequently quite funny, but it's "you laugh so you won't cry" brand funny.

Russell Crowe is just amazingly good as Steve, flexing the acting chops that shortly will be exposed to the world in Gladiator. One thing impressive about Russell in Breaking Up is he's not afraid to look bad - emotionally strung-out, tired, unshaven, fat, sloppy. He's completely believable as a guy whose horrible relationship skills are eating him alive.

Salma Hayek matches Russell talent for talent. Director Robert Greenwald tells a touching story about Salma's audition for this role. She came in, she read, and as she was leaving told him, "Thank you for letting me audition for this part, even though I know I'm not going to get it." When he asked, "Why wouldn't you get it?" she told him every part she'd ever gotten so far was a role specifically for a Latina. But that's not the case with Monica - she could be ANYTHING.

journal of a dysfunctional relationship. You want them to stay together, as much if not more than they do. But loving each other sometimes just isn't enough. If you like a movie based on relationships and characterizations, then give this a try. Imagine a gritty "When Harry Met Sally".

Just watched the movie "Breaking Up." Editing not the best. Watched the alternative/deleted scenes and felt one of the scenes should have been included in the movie to improve clarity. Highly recommended movie for Russell fans; he's adorable and very talented.

The characters simply got on my nerves. I so wanted to reach out and shake some sense into both, demanding they grow up. There's only one scene where I felt the characters became real, and that's when they decide to get married and as a lark are interviewing people on the street about love/marriage/relationships. It's as if the actors finally relax and are being themselves. Otherwise, turn down the sound and simply enjoy looking at two beautiful people. Make up your own dialogue. It'll probably be more interesting than what's actually being said.

Finally a movie that depicts real relationship dialogue during its ups and downs. Bottom line: you can be sexually charged by your significant other - even love them - but it doesn't mean that Mr. or Mrs. Wonderful is Mr. or Mrs. RIGHT. Thumbs up to Russell Crowe and Salma Hayek for oblivious digging through past personal relationships to deliver such affecting performances - you can't "act" that. A "must see" movie for persons going through the emotional ups and downs of relationships.
