Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Writer and director Daniel Taplitz piles on the convolutions in an overripe comedy of sitcom stock characters and bad jokes. – Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Packed with enough muddles and mixups to stock a French farce (or a middling UPN sitcom), Rules coasts amiably on without striking any real sparks. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: For the most part, Breakin' All the Rules feels like a Richard (Love Actually) Curtis film but without the inventiveness and wit. – Jonathan Foreman, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: No movie this stupid should need a plot synopsis this complicated. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

The Perfect Romantic Comedy

Thi is a great movie, its funny as hell and its something different than your average romantic comedy.

Breakin' All the Rules

This was a great romantic comedy. Jamie Foxx is at the top of his game and Gabrielle Union is a stone cold fox. Definately worth a rent, probably worth the buy.

Breakin' All the Rules

Great romantic comedy.
