However much the Breakup tracking upticks, which, as expected, it is now doing, Vince Vaughn‘s staunchly alpha-male rat-a-tat-tat smartass schtick is an absolute must-have…as long as the movie he’s in agrees with and salutes who and what he is. Is that movie The Breakup? An above-average portrait of the 36 year-old comedy star by USA Today ‘s Susan Wloszczyna pretty much lays iton the line as far as Vaughn’s pre-Breakup situation through a quote by Jon Favreau: “This movie will determine how his career goes. He could either be a well-paid hired gun or, if this film is successful, he could be somebody who gets to create his own material and decide who and where and how he is going to work.”
