Storyline

Fifteen years ago, Mel and Jen 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. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.

Cute and quirky - not a masterpiece though
17 February 2019 | by AristarchosTheArchivistSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this kiwi movie, mostly for the really cute and quirky humour.

The movie does have a problem with pacing and setting up the different characters, and some of the scenes are just not really believable even in the quirky context (police station strip scene - watch it and you will know... although... I'm not a kiwi, maybe it is believable...).

But anyway, if you are looking for something nice and different to fill some boredom, this is a good choice. I certainly didn't regret watching it.
