Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 05/21/2004
"Jamie Foxx's smash-and-grab charisma remains intact."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/14/2004
"The movie depends for its success on the likability of Jamie Foxx, Morris Chestnut and Gabrielle Union, and because they're funny and pleasant, we enjoy the ride..."
Premiere - 07/01/2005
"Foxx presides over the goings-on with a fluency nicely calibrated between goofiness and urban romanticism."

Product Description:

Things are looking bleak for Quincy Watson (Jamie Foxx, ANY GIVEN SUNDAY and BOOTY CALL). His company is firing people left and right and his heartless fiancée Helen (Bianca Lawson) has just taken off for Paris with his best man. What else is there to do but sit around the house in an old bathrobe writing anguished letters to Helen that express just how bad he feels over how tactlessly she broke the news to him' His cousin Evan (Morris Chestnut, CONFIDENCE, HALF PAST DEAD) is a magazine publisher who convinces him to take the letters and turn them into an instructional book about how to scientifically and skillfully break up with someone. When the book hits the bestseller list, Quincy is suddenly regarded as an expert on the subject. Both Evan and Quincy's former boss Philip Gascon (Peter MacNicol of ALLY MACBEAL fame) enlist his help breaking things off with their girlfriends. Quincy even agrees to meet Evan's girlfriend Nicky (the lovely Gabrielle Union of BRING IT ON and DELIVER US FROM EVA) in his place, but Nicky recognizes him from a TV interview about his book and immediately suspects (correctly) foul play. So, she decides to play her own game by introducing herself to Quincy as someone else.

BREAKIN' ALL THE RULES is a head-spinning yarn of mistaken identity that has everyone in the movie in a convoluted tailspin. It's a charming, clever, and complicated tale of love, sex, and romance. This comedy of errors has a lot going for it, including an up-to-the-minute hip-hop and R&B soundtrack with some cool Middle Eastern dance grooves and some old school tunes to boot.
