Slickly built and Highly Entertaining

This film is like Ocean's 11 crossed with French farce, tinged with a touch of dramatic intensity. It shouldn't be good, but it is. If you liked Romain Duris (and all his sexually charged intensity) in "The Beat My Heart Skipped", and if you already know that Vanessa Paradis can be the French Lauren Bacall, then you're probably surprised that they...

Fantastic french film

My husband and I went to this movie and both loved it. Neither of us knew what it was about as we'd won tickets. We saw the promo poster and my husband was a little concerned it would be a girlie romance movie. Well, while it was romantic it was brilliantly funny with lots of laugh out loud moments. So, definitely suggest you get out there and see this...

Yes, Heartbreaker is diverting, intermittently charming and occasionally funny, but it is also a jumble of jammed-together notions. Unevenly paced, it goes on too many tangents to cohere as a persuasive comic fable about love and money.

Slick entertainment is rarely as, yes, slickly entertaining as it is in Heartbreaker, a French romantic farce that is commercial cinema at its most successful.
