Storyline

What was your worst break-up? How did you get over it? Who do you date next? Why online dating? Why speed dating? Why Cuddle Parties? Why are there more single people out there now than there ever have been before? The new documentary Break-Up Date attempts to answer these questions by following regular people who are at that awkward and uncertain time between relationships when one is confronted with the dating world that favors appearance over substance. Featuring candid and funny interviews with filmmakers, authors, dating coaches, divorce attorneys and talk show hosts, Break-Up Date is like a romantic comedy in documentary form; a smarter, more insightful alternative to the empty-headed dating realty shows on television. This is a movie everyone can relate to, whether you want to or not. Written by Collin Souter

A Stellar Effort
11 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of us who have been around the block a few more times than we would have liked, we can watch this and see very much to agree with. For anyone interested, this film may have some very valuable insights and suggestions that can make meeting and dating new people a lot less painful than it sometimes can be. Here I felt there was very much level-headed thinking and a lot of straight forward truth.

Collin Souter, seemingly little known, has done an excellent job of showcasing the way our culture and generational influences have impacted our social values and intimate relationship habits. Things change as they will, the more things change, the more they stay the same. A person of any age can see timeless methods of interacting with potential dates in a good and positive manner. And we see how the entire landscape has changed in many ways also. Take note of the comment Marcia makes regarding Reid's High School reunion, and the contrasting demeanor of those attending. I would ask if the current trends are healthy ones?
