what the critics are saying about Heartbreakers

See what the critics are saying about Heartbreakers *************************************************************************
EBERT & ROEPER and the movies
give Heartbreakers 'two thumbs up'

Roger Ebert, EBERT & ROEPER and the movies

'Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt are dirty rotten scoundrels in extremely tight skirts.'

'Jennifer Love Hewitt has that Erin Brockovich-Brittney Spears kind of thing going on, and her neckline is kind of a special effect in this movie.'

'it’s slam-bang, roustabout-type comedy.'

'Two thumbs up for 'HEARTBREAKERS,' the raucous comedy with Jennifer Love Hewitt.'


A.O. Scott, New York Times

Naughty is an outdated word in an era of proud nastiness, but 'Heartbreakers' has a slinky, teasing quality that recalls the dressed-up comedies of the studio era. Central to Max and Page's scam is the withholding of the sexual favors they dangle in front of the men they encounter. This strategic chastity helps the movie steer clear of sleaziness (and an R rating) and also allows it to rediscover, and profit from, some of the traditional values of screen comedy, missing since the demise of the prudish old Production Code: repression, frustration, double dealing and hypocrisy.'

Joel Siegel, Good Morning America

'Gene Hackman is hysterical'

Amy Longsdorf, Camden Courier Post

'HEARTBREAKERS is the year’s best comedy. It’s a side-splitting delight. The movie is thoroughly entertaining and masterfully acted. See it for the clever, sexy performances by Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt.'

'HEARTBREAKERS is that rare treat: a black comedy with heart. It’s fresh, funny and filled with smart, savvy dialogue.'

Neil Rosen, NY 1 & Centerseat

'The funniest comedy of the year!'

'Witty, stylish, clever and fun, fun, fun!'

'Sigourney, Jennifer and Gene have never been funnier!'
