Let’s Break them Up
Peter and Emma hitch a plan to split their exes from their new partners. Peter befriends Noah and seeks to show him how wonderful Emma is. On the other hand, Emma tries to seduce Anne’s boyfriend and show her how amazing Peter is. They, however, end up with mixed results as Emma succeeds and Peter and Anne get back together while Peter fails as Noah decides that his newfound love, Ginny, is the one.
I Want You Back is a funny movie that ties in the tragedy of heartbreak with a lot of humor. Peter and Emma are both hilarious characters who find themselves becoming good friends while they try and execute their crazy plan to get their exes back.
I Want You Back is a good watch, though we don’t feel it was as funny as could have been. The humor in the movie feels authentic and natural, however, and the plot twist at the end makes it all that more worthwhile. We rate the movie 6/10 and we think it’s a good watch. Enjoy.
