The Break-Up

(USA, 2006, 106 minutes)

Shortly after moving in on a shared flat, an art gallerist breaks up with her loutish tour guide boyfriend, but neither wants to give up the house. Unusual romantic comedy that starts where most genre entries never go but never really takes off because, despite earnest performances, you never see why the leads would want to move in together in the first place; the supporting cast keeps it afloat, but you never get enough of it.
