Dealbreaker was hilarious!
30 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Dealbreaker at Sundance Film Festival in January. Since I have never watched an episode of Sex in the City, I didn't notice any similarities to it or any other film. But you may be onto something, since Gwynneth Paltrow herself says: "I find "Sex and the City" (1998) irreverent and shocking. It's one step beyond how girls really talk. I would do a cameo on that show in a flash." (IMDB). Wherever she got her inspiration, this film was my favorite short! I thought it was hilarious from start to finish, and I would love to see it again. My only complaint was that there was only one star from the short there to represent the film at the Q&A at the end, and the other suits didn't have much to say about it. I did think I spotted the star of the film, Arijia Bareikis, on the streets of Park City, but I cannot be sure. I thought the writing was great, the story line was easy to understand, and my girlfriend and I were totally howling out loud at some of the scenes, screaming: "OH MY GOD!! We've been there, done that!" I thought it was a great bit of entertainment, as well as all the shorts in that program.
