The Break-Up


Aila and I went to visit Bik & Len after her out-patient procedure earlier today. We had planned to see Nacho Libre, the Jack Black-starrer from Jared Hess, the director of the cult hit Napoleon Dynamite. We had forgotten that it was a Wednesday, which is new movie day and were overwhelmed by the slew of new movies that opened. On the menu were M.Night Shyamalan's Lady in the Water, which I had no hope of seeing that night because I had scaredy-cats for companions (that's Aila and my brother Bik, mind you, and not the two girls necessarily); the Lindsay Lohan rom-com Just My Luck; and the Jennifer Aniston-enhanced The Break-Up (which also stars some tall, fat dude).

We let Len decide what movie to watch, and thankfully she chose The Break-Up (Lady in the Water had its odds stacked against it. Damn!). What I imagined to be a typical rom-com turned out to be an extremely pleasant, very uplifting, and mature movie about... well... breaking up. Watching this movie made me just like Jennifer Aniston more and, in some deep perverse level which I have no business feeling because I don't know shit about the real deal, hate Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Showbiz partisanship aside, The Break-Up gives a real (albeit woman-friendly) view of relationships and how love can turn to crap. Jennifer Aniston's character Brooke was so much like Aila on many levels. It was funny because earlier in Bik & Len's apartment, we were watching Friends best-ofs and we realized how she was so much like Jennifer Aniston's character Rachael. I had a lot of fun with this movie and it was feel-good in a non-cheesy way. Oh, and as Aila said, you get your ticket's P110 worth on seeing Justin Long's (he's the cool Mac guy in the commercials. click the link!) character in the movie. Go watch it!
