Breakin' All the Rules
When it comes to getting dumped... He wrote the book.
Inspired by his fiancée (who dumped him), a man publishes a break-up handbook for men, becoming a bestselling author in the process.
2004 was the same year in which Jamie Foxx starred in the two films that defined his acting career: Ray and Collateral, and he received an Academy Award nomination for each performance in the same year, winning one for his masterful performance as Ray Charles in the former.
It is a bit hard for me to believe that casually in the same year, he starred in this horrible romantic comedy called Breakin' All the Rules. Too bad for me that I had the misfortune of watching it, and good for him because it was such a commercial and critical flop that most people haven't even heard of it and evidently it was overshadowed by the success of the other two.
