Boring, poorly acted stupid plot.
Lawrence M. Bosley
Things will not end well for the lesbian, of course... even though (or because) Guinevere Turner had her hand in this script.

Basically a Lifetime Network movie with a little lesbian play thrown in.

When Sara (Agnes Bruckner) meets Alex (Madeline Zima) at a bar one evening, they hit it off an end up going back to Alex's place. Alex shares horror stories about her stepmother and Sara confides that she has a school rival that is making her life miserable. Fantasizing about what life would be like without each of their respective enemies, they partake in a super hot love scene before drifting off to sleep.

When Alex brings Sara her rival's necklace as a souvenir the next day and announces that she has killed her, Sara is shocked. What Sara thought was idle talk had now slammed into reality. Alex, her part of the bargain fulfilled, now looks to Sara to fulfill her end. When Sara refuses, things get ugly. Sara, scared for her life must now choose between Alex's revenge and committing a crime herself.

Director Jamie Babbit (But I'm a Cheerleader) and screenplay writers Mark Distefano and Guinevere Turner have brought a wonderfully creepy film to the screen. Full of twists and turns, this thriller will keep you guessing as the tension mounts.

Madeline Zima's portrayal of Alex is deliciously evil as she alternatively seduces and threatens Sara into doing her bidding. Agnes Bruckner is tender and sweet as the wronged scholarship student Sara pulled into Alex's twisted seduction plot.

I already knew one of the lead actresses from her role as skanky slut Lolita-type character on "Californication." She continues her typecast well here. The whole cast is great but the main drawback for me was the ridiculously convoluted script that took too many twists and turns to such a degree that it took away from the good performances by the solid cast. Too bad, really, because it's got such deliciously sexy, deviant scenes. A few moments reminded me of excellent scenes in "Diabolique" with sexual tension thick and exciting. This is good but could have been great. One thing for certain, it is NOT for children, in fact anyone under 18.

Even small thrillers tend to find a measure of success if (and that's the key word) they can summon something `new' or `exciting' upon which to capitalize an otherwise thin plotline. In many respects, it's a cultural phenomenon not unlike what action films endure - when one is successful, leave it to the next aspiring screenwriter to recast that original idea in a new mold, and - voila! - you have a reasonably efficacious rip-off ... but a rip-off, nonetheless. More than any other city, Hollywood knows that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that's probably why films like BREAKING THE GIRLS have a chance of getting made: they'll imitate what's been done before, add in a twist (say `lesbianism'), and hope for the best.

The failure to legitimately capitalize on that twist will kill you every time, and that's a lesson I hope all involved learned with this meager film that tries hard but, in the end, just doesn't quite deliver on its potential.

(NOTE: The following review will contain spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you're the kind of person who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

A financially strapped law student, Sara (played constantly as if under the influence of an Ambien by Agnes Bruckner) gets caught stealing from the tip jar at her job, so she immediately cozies up to wealthy socialite Alex (Madeline Zima) for a place to stay and a meal on her table.

I spent the whole first hour of this movie waiting for it to be over. I was kinda interested in the blonde lead (Sara) which kept me from tuning out altogether, but she was obviously so straight it kinda sapped the sexy out of her appeal and the lead chemistry altogether.

Basically, I just watched this plot some months ago in Kill For Me. And I know it's been done before a-plenty. One pretty psycho disturbed lesbian corners a lovely straight girl in her weakest hour and seduces her. The straight girl isn't normally into women, but when your whole life falls apart and everyone abandons you and only an attractive lesbian offers friendship and intimacy (and a nice place to stay)... it sure is better than being alone!! When the lesbian doesn't get the emotional loyalty another lesbian might give her, the plot devolves into a 'you kill my enemy and I'll kill your enemy' crime drama... because what other purpose is there to hang out with a hot straight chick who will never love you???? Use her for pest control, dammit. How else does the mind of a pretty lesbian function?!

Things will not end well for the lesbian, of course... even though (or because) Guinevere Turner had her hand in this script. And the straight girl will fall back into the arms of a man-- and the manhood she desperately longs for. A lot of this stereotypical lesbian drama is catering to dudes and the straights... all the "lezzies" are L Word types and there are just as many graphic heterosexual sex scenes as f/f scenes. Can't explain the dykey obese black detective. Nope. She must be a friend of the writer or director... someone needed to be the token female minority to "keep it real," lol. There just isn't an ounce of chemistry between any of these women, in my opinion.
