Excellent movie!
23 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I would highly recommend this comedy-drama to anyone. I sincerely enjoyed this gem of a movie. The acting was great and sincere. It was funny. It was serious and thought provoking. It had some sad moments and some thrilling moments. In the end, it made me cry, so it is definitely an emotional movie.

Even though I knew what to expect, or so I thought, the movie caught me off guard with a surprise twist and a very emotional one.

I also liked the singing and music in this film. The soundtrack to it must be awesome. The singing was just fantastic. The performances were powerful and enthralling.

All in all Breaking the Rules (Sketches) was class-A entertainment and worth viewing by anyone wanting to see a really good show with some substance. I can't recommend it enough. I give it a thumbs up.

See this movie. You won't be disappointed.
