The movie producers have not announced the official weekend gross of the movie making the online viewers abuzz. Since the movie bested its toughest competitor 'Terminator: Genisys' with around 1.5 million dollars or 65 million pesos, it is expected that the movie has reached 100 million peso mark after its 5th day showing in cinemas given the positive online reviews from the critics and pictures from the viewers lining up the cinemas up to its last full show of the day.

According to, " The Breakup Playlist is a film that juggles commercial demands with the impulse for creative change. Sure, it may not be perfect, it may not dent the system or cause a revolution, but the film, with all its heart and soul in all the right places, is proof that even in the much maligned arena of escapist entertainment, there is hope. There is substance.
