THE BREAK UP

I went to this movie prepared to feel impatient and disappointed, and instead, enjoyed it thoroughly. It turns out to be a quick, one-two punch session of couples counselling in the guise of a romantic comedy. It's done in absurdly large and cliched terms, but it's accurate, nonetheless, in depicting the universal course of romantic breakups.

In a way, this is the big budget version of THE PUFFY CHAIR.

Hunh. What does this say about the mood out there? The zeigeist's opinion of the current state of our romantic hopes and illusions?
