"Very disappointing"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Based on the trailer, I expected so much more. I have given it two stars as the trailer and the short sketches at the beginning of the movie were very funny. Unfortunately the two main story lines of the movie weren’t.

The Breaker Upperers

Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Their film feels marvelously shaggy around the edges – their personalities pop – until after a whiplash-funny first hour, they play it safe with an everyone-gets-a-hug Paul Feig-style climax " – Amy Nicholson
  • " As hilarious as it is, the film packs so much more of a punch because of how genuine Van Beek and Sami's friendship comes across onscreen " – Stephen Saito
  • " A new addition to the New Zealand invasion of comedy, with hysterical jokes, infectious energy, and an honest story about friendship. " – Rafael Motamayor
