    The Break-Up

    Remember the time when all movies were like this?

    Vince Vaughan and Jon Favreau are so fun together, need to rewatch Swingers, it’s been a while.

    The Owner of a Lonely Heart acapella dinner table scene is awkward comedy gold. John Michael Higgins nails it.

    The Half of It

    ★½

    All for the representation here but it’s disappointing when the story, characters and dialogue are thinly written. 

    A whole lot of nothing happens and anything that does happen is either predictable, strangely contrived or just eye-rollingly dumb.
