Forget matchmaking! Now, match un-making is big business in this fun romcom
16 September 2013 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Britney (Amanda Crew) has been dumped one too many times. Now, she stays away from romance and runs a lucrative business called Splitsville. If you dread breaking up with your current squeeze, but know there is no future as a couple, you hire Britney to do the dirty deed for you. So, instead of your "true love" showing up at an agreed upon diner, Britnes shows up and delivers the bad news. Ugh. But, there are so many clients, the money keeps rolling in. However, that becomes a problem, as soon, another break-up biz arrives to give Brit serious competition. It is run by handsome catch Rick (Peter Benson), who gives Britney the rush without revealing his line of work. Unbelievably, Brit lets her guard down and starts to fall for him. They re-enact scenes from Titanic and American Beauty, with Rick pelting her with rose petals. At the very next lunch date, Rick shows up, gives Britney the bad break-up news and the information that he is out to steal her clients. There are tears, shame, and anger coming in waves for the young businesswoman. Soon, Splitsville is struggling. Therefore, when Britney gets a plea from darling Mike (Ryan Kennedy) to help him win over the affections of Britney's snooty sister, for a large fee, she leaps at the chance. But, can a woman who has become an expert in heartache truly lead a couple to everlasting love? Also, will Britney refuse to take another chance at wine and roses for herself? This is a very cute romcom with a fun premise. Yes, its lower budget but still quite entertaining for fans of humorous love tales. None of the cast is well-known but Crew, Kennedy (a dead ringer for Keanu Reeves), Benson and all of the others are a pleasure to watch. Add on the fine costumes, sets, script and surefooted direction and we have a winner, people. Break out of the re-run rut and find this little flick.
