Content:

(PaPaPa, HoHoHo, LLL, SSS, NN, AAA, DDD, MMM) Very strong pagan worldview with very strong pro-homosexual sentiments where a young Jewish couple lives a vile, vulgar, promiscuous pagan lifestyle while participating in a Jewish celebration, plus brother of lead character is homosexual and parents joke about wishing both their boys were “gay”; at least 54 obscenities with 25 or so being the “f” word, and four profanities; no violence; very strong sexual content several depicted sex scenes with different partners including nudity; some upper and rear female nudity during sex; ample drinking with obvious drunkenness and one of the drunken parties in the movie involves wife swapping; drug abuse by the couple’s parents including bringing drugs to a party where a Jewish celebration is being held; and, plenty of miscellaneous immorality.

Summary:

BREAKING UPWARDS is a low budget story of a young Jewish couple trying to decide if they should break up or stay together. With much depicted sex, foul language and a strong pagan worldview, this story features an abhorrent lifestyle lived by children and their parents who participate in Jewish celebrations but live as if the Ten Commandments no longer apply.

Review:

BREAKING UPWARDS is a low budget story of a young Jewish couple trying to decide if they should break up or stay together.

The movie opens with the unmarried couple engaging in sex. It quickly reveals that these youths and their parents think nothing of using obscenities and profanities. To see if they were meant for each other, the couple spends some time apart drinking and fornicating with other people. The girl’s Jewish mother uses drugs and even brings them to the above-mentioned religious celebration.

BREAKING UPWARDS is poorly made with a substandard story and flat characters. There is very little to enjoy about this movie. It’s an absolutely abhorrent movie about an abhorrent lifestyle lived by children and their parents who participate in Jewish celebrations but live as if the Ten Commandments no longer apply. In fact, the filmmaker himself describes the movie as “exploring alternatives to monogamy.”

Because of the movie’s voluminous negative content and wicked pagan worldview, BREAKING UPWARDS is unacceptable viewing. The lifestyle portrayed in this movie leads to venereal disease, distrust, emptiness and misery. Worse, it demonstrates the lack of a relationship to God.
