Should Have Been Better
It's pretty safe to say I will never miss a film about New York artists, their lives and loves. So of course I paid to see "Breakable You." I enjoy seeing my city in a film, and I enjoy seeing stories about writers and therapists, as I am both. So on a superficial level, I enjoyed this film. At the same time there was a lot about it, mainly about the characters and their choices, that left me cold. Perhaps that was the writer's/director's intention? I don't know, but I prefer to watch people in films struggling with "Life Issues" and resolving them in ways I like and approve of than in ways I find selfish, dishonest and morally bankrupt. What this means about Breakable You is that yes, it held my interest, but in the end, left a bad taste in my mouth.
