Joe Baltake, Passionate Moviegoer
"The Break-Up": A brilliantly uncompromising, often harsh but very accurate examination of a relationship unraveling– Full review
Philip French, Guardian [UK]
This is that branch of the romantic comedy known as 'a relationship movie', but generally short on witty lines and amusing incidents.– Full review
Tony Horkins, Empire Magazine
The Break-Up doesn't turn the rom-com on its head, but with its focus on the darker side of love manages to gently tip it on its side.– Full review
Anna Smith, Time Out
Sharp dialogue and detailed observations make it a good deal funnier than you might expect.– Full review
Stella Papamichael, BBC
Like the story of many broken down relationships: despite the initial attraction, you're left feeling cheated.– Full review
Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
Delivers something worthwhile to those open-minded enough to be able to settle with wild shifts between average satire and grounded pathos– Full review
