Don't Go Breaking My Heart (2021)
83 min | Comedy, Romance
Miranda's Breakup Boot Camp, touted as the greatest thing in breakup therapy since sliced bread, is taking Portland, Oregon by storm, so much so that psychologist Dr. Miranda Faraday, who developed the six week program largely styled as a traditional boot camp, is in the process of expanding the business in order to meet demand. She developed the program in part as her own therapy to deal with the emotions surrounding her now ex-husband, Dex Finnegan, leaving her. She would also admit to herself that the boot camp is not easy in she herself having broken one of her own cardinal rules in recently having cyberstalked Dex. Among the disparate group that has signed up for the latest camp is magazine reporter Ben Meyers, a reluctant attendee who does not inherently believe in such therapy, viewing it solely as meaningless psychological mumbo-jumbo and a fad, but is attending as a favor to support his sister, Kim, who is dealing with the discovery of her ex-husband getting engaged, and who, in attending, does truly believe in such therapy being able to ease her pain. While Ben is indeed dealing with his last girlfriend Jennifer having recently broken up with him, Ben, if being honest to himself, would admit that it is the breakup with a former girlfriend, Serena, from ten years ago that has made him a broken man unable to commit. Two opposing items complicate matters between Miranda and Ben. First, they start to fall for each other, no dating between camp members one of the golden rules in the inherent issues with the rebound. That may be a moot point with the second in Ben's assignment editor Leo learning of he being in boot camp: to write an exposé on Miranda and the camp, a promotion to an editorial position and a corner office pending the resulting article.
