Unwieldy, dumb, rarely funny (and never truly hilarious) and largely charmless.

It is clear that the dream cast members are all enjoying themselves immensely, but that does not translate into much fun for the audience.

like its central characters, it cons the audience members as they are watching it and only later leaves them feeling taken for a ride.

A picture to be watched for its plot mechanics and very occasional laughs rather than with any engagement in its characters or the stakes involved.

I tend to agree with Ray Liotta's query, 'Do you have any idea how much therapy you people need?' and his conclusion, 'This is just too sick.'

Heartbreakers breaks our hearts by taking a promising premise and slowly dissolving it into formula clichés.

What the comedy had going for it was a lot of spunk, enough to overlook the film's many drawbacks.

An expensive imitation of older, better films from older, often better times.

It ignores one of the game's unbreakable rules: Do the job and get out quick. Instead, Heartbreakers spends more than 2 hours meandering its way through the story.

There are not enough Hefty bags in all The Home Depots to contain the trash generated by this vulgar burlesque.

Director David Mirkin, whose Romy and Michele's High School Reunion was similarly afflicted, never gets the timing right and allows the story to drag with little internal logic.

A surprisingly dull comedy with a smart cast and a predictably uninteresting script.

This movie had a lot of potential, but in the end it was a bit of a disappointment.
