Movie review – The Break Up

On Friday night I went to see the chick flick 'The Break Up' starring Jennifer Aniston. No, it's not about the very long and boring saga of her and Brad Pitt's marriage breakdown, it's a fictional not that long and definitely not boring tale of a couple's split over … a bowl of lemons.

Both funny and poignant, the film looks at miscommunication between the sexes in true 'Men are from Mars, women from Venus' style. Him: "OK I'll do the dishes". Her: "I want you to want to do the dishes". Him: "Why would I want to do the dishes?"

Although the couple's lifestyle is far from realistic – expensive apartment, couple's bowling nights, fancy job in a posh art gallery – the dialogue is pretty much spot on.

Jennifer (according to Heat magazine, so it must be true) is dating her co–star Vince Vaughn in real life. If they want to stay that way my advice to them is never, ever, to attempt a table centerpiece with a bowl of lemons. Jennifer, don't flirt with another man to try and make him jealous. And Vince, OFFER to do the dishes before you're asked.
