Amanda Crew stars in The Break-Up Artist as Britney, a girl who's turned her back on love, waiting for Cary Grant to come along and sweep her off her feet. She's started a business in which she breaks up for people. You hire Britney to come over to do what you haven't got the guts, time, or gumption to do. She does well at first, but slowly her business is being taken away by a competitor with low, low prices.

Enter Rick (Peter Benson), who Britney jilts for a customer. He takes it really well, and soon he's so smitten with Britney that he puts all his efforts into wooing her. She falls for it eventually, and they become a couple. Maybe she was wrong about love.

Not so. Rick turns out to be her competitor. He breaks her heart, steals her clients, and leaves her emotionally scarred. In order to save her business, she takes on another challenge.

Mike (Ryan Kennedy) gets jilted (by Brit) after falling for Britney's sister, Ashley (Serinda Swan). He's a nice guy, an artist who believes that Ashley is his muse. He agrees to pay Britney $10,000 to teach him to be perfect for Ashley.

The Break-Up Artist is a pretty standard romantic comedy - no real surprises here. If you see the trailer, then you can guess how it ends. Some funny bits are sprinkled throughout, but mostly it's running on auto-pilot. You never connect well enough with the characters to get to the point where you give a damn whether they succeed or fail.
