Broken Over the Break Up
You can’t help but analyze the “relationship” between Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston when you see The Breakup. Frankly, that was the only reason I agreed to see the film. I don’t think they were or are in love. It is all a publicity stunt. The film was flat and so is their supposed relationship.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad and Angelina sizzled with chemistry. You believed that they were a couple that had a history together and could rebuild their lives despite their attempts to kill each other.
Jennifer came off as a manipulative, angry bitch and Vince was towed around by her behavior. Angelina was in it for herself and so was brad – but they found strength in each other and brought that to the heart of their relationship.
Am I over-analyzing these folks and their movie personas? Heck, I’m not alone. It is like junk food for the brain. So much more interesting than real life.
