Entirely hollow and kind of gross.
Verified purchase
Much like its protagonist, this film hacks out an existence by masquerading as something it is not: a romantic comedy. While it certainly bears all the superficial hallmarks of a romcom, it lacks the principal requirements of both romance and comedy. The gags are limited and hackneyed, and the idea of Juliette ending up with Alex for even a minute is wholly unappealing. The movie presents literally no elements of compatibility between them besides the physical--and even that element we're asked to believe in because they say so, not because we can feel any chemistry on screen. The few memorable moments in this film are explicitly ripped from another movie. Add to that some shallow chauvinist humor and a couple of casually racist depictions of Slavs, and you get one stinky imitation of humor and romance.

I genuinely resent each and every one of you who rated it highly for making me waste 104 minutes of my life on this steaming pile.

Romain Duris Peut Bien Sur Etre A ArnaCouer
Verified purchase
This is my all time favorite Romain Duris movie and this is also my all time favorite French comedy ever made! My favorite thing about the DVD release is the audio quality because everytime when a rock and roll song or rap song would come on, it would sound like a radio is on with really lound speakers that are turned all the way up! My two favorite songs throughout the whole the film is America by K'naan and The Joker by The Steve Miller Band!

The whole point of the film is this guy Alex Lippi (Romain Duris) who breaks up bad relationships. So, he finds this couple (Vanessa Paradis, Andrew Lincoln) that are about to get married 10 days and he turns out to be the bodyguard for Juliette (Vanessa Paradis) and they start to like each other before Alex breaks them up!

This is a really good movie I mean REALLY, REALLY good movie for everyone but it's not rated when it should be rated PG-13 for langauge but the langauge is in the subtitles but the langauge is not strong!

When will IFC pictures put "Heartbreaker" on bluray in America?

review of Heart Breaker

Roman Duris plays a man who is used to break up unsuitable engagements. A girl's family hires him when they think the girl's fiance is wrong for her. Duris' character's back-up include his sister and her husband.

Vanessa Paradis's family think that her English fiance is not right for her. Oh, he's rich and not bad looking. It's just that he's also very boring.

If you've ever seen Frank Capra's It Happened One Night starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, you know how this film ends. This film mostly takes place in beautiful Monaco rather than in rundown trailer camps.

Still, I recommend this film as being funny.

This movie was recommended for me on Netflix. I rented it and then promptly purchased it from Amazon. I wasn't thrilled to read subtitles while watching the movie, but after the third time watching it, it got easier. The cast is superb and work SO well together. The movie has a lot of laugh out loud moments with excellent comedic timing. I enjoyed watching it and have recommended it to my friends. I also made my husband watch it and he recommended it to his friends too! Really a sweet movie filled with action, humor, suspense and love. The actors really made the movie memorable and worth purchasing. This is a movie you will not regret watching!

I was so happy to find this gem on DVD because it isn't ever streaming. It is a clever French film with comedy and romance and fun.

Fun Rom-Com
Verified purchase
Super fun and cute rom-com. Showed it to my French 3s and they loved it. Some racy scenes so if you teach in public schools def pre-view. I also had the kids read 2 movie reviews 1 good and 1 bad along with assigning vocab for the film and film reviews on quizlet. My kiddos have to work in order to get their movies. They don't mind at all. When everything is contextually based they learn and ENJOY French more.

Even if you don't speak French, this is a cute movie.

A Modern Classic of the Genre
Verified purchase
This is what a romantic comedy can be. Wonderful chemistry, intelligent script, beautifully directed.
The unexpected within the expected. Absolutely worth owning, sharing, and watching again, and again
to lift yourself out of one of those days. It's a perfect example of the French style lifting way above the
usual Hollywood fare. A great gift for movie lovers film libraries. Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris,
and the supporting cast, are all special in their own right and combine for the perfect "je ne sais q'uois"
we all look for in films, especially the light ones. So good I ordered the other DVD's available from
the director but they just came so haven't had time to watch yet. If you haven't seen Paradis in
The Girl On The Bridge order that at the same time, you'll want more of her and it's a real classic.
