The events of "Breaking All The Rules" almost all take place at a place called Fun Park, but there is absolutely no fun to be found in this dismal Canadian comedy. I was able to forgive the movie for its unanswered questions like why a valuable gem is being exhibited in a third rate amusement park, but not for much else. There are plenty of attempts at humor, and while some are *almost* funny (such as the scene taking place in the bus), in the end *none* of the attempts at humor actually work. The cast seems to know they are in an utter bomb, because their performances come across as labored and with no sense of having any fun. In fact, the director seems to be feeling the same way as his poor actors, because the energy level is woefully low and there is absolutely no feeling of enthusiasm or passion. The icing on the cake is the cheap feeling of the entire enterprise, from the shabby production values to the grating songs on the soundtrack. The Canadian government actually provided funding for this movie, and while I normally like it when the government takes a break from funding boring and pretentious art films as it usually does for something more commercial, in the end this so-called commercial film is almost as tough to sit through as those painful art films.
