'Breakin' All the Rules'
(Jamie Foxx, Morris Chestnut, Gabrielle Union, Jennifer Esposito / PG-13 / 89 mins / Sony Pictures)
Overview: Quincy (Jamie Foxx) gets dumped by his fiancée,, but he then writes a best-selling book advising guys to avoid heartache by breaking up with their girlfriends before they can get hurt. Quincy's cousin (Morris Chestnut) enlists him to break up with his girlfriend (Gabrielle Union) for him, but while doing so, Quincy falls for her.
Verdict: For sure, 'Breakin' All The Rules' has something many movies don't these days: interesting and attractive people talking to each other! But, it not only fails to break the rules, but it follows them to the letter! Mechanical and unimaginative, 'Breakin' ...' is a romantic comedy that strains to be screwball but at least is likable. Crudely embraces reverse ethnic stereotypes, 'Breakin' ...' is yet another unfunny buppie sex comedy!
