It sparkles like champagne. It's not the good stuff, but it'll do the trick.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
If Heartbreaker were made in America, it would probably star Dane Cook and suck. But, instead, it's French and delightful.
| Original Score: 3/4
It has neither a cynic's conviction nor idealist's perseverance, and its ideas about what a woman wants seem cribbed from bad paperback fiction.
| Original Score: 2/4
Romantic comedies are generally not my cup of tea but this French film goes down a little easier mainly because lead actor Roman Duris is so much fun to watch.
| Original Score: 5/10
In his first feature, TV veteran Pascal Chaumeil demonstrates a flair for schmaltz and pratfalls, evoking nostalgia for a time when French cinema wasn't a farm league for American studios.
James Bond meets Don Juan in this charming French romantic comedy.
Not a complete waste of time, but close.
Chaumeil's comedy cum scenery -- mainly Monte Carlo -- gives the mercurial Romain Duris a chance to show his chops as an homme fatal.
Alas, it turns out to be just as bad as any routine French romantic comedy -- illogical, inconsistent and sloppily written, a charmless, tasteless, witless waste of time.
| Original Score: 1/4
Skips along with a funny, stylish flair that only adds to a brisk yet breezy romanticism.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The travelogue component of Heartbreaker is its best selling point.
| Original Score: C+
A lighthearted sitcom with enough slapstick and sheer silliness to generate laughs galore for the duration.
| Original Score: 4/4
A refreshing, pleasantly diverting romantic comedy that offers plenty of laughs, escapism and charm.
| Original Score: 8.496/10
Yes, Heartbreaker is diverting, intermittently charming and occasionally funny, but it is also a jumble of jammed-together notions.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
This is a big screen movie, a whipsmart twist on a particular kind of romantic comedy typically associated with charmless big-budget American studio films.
| Original Score: 4/5
A sweetly ingratiating fuzzy navel of a movie...
...convoluted and with inferior subtitles, a farce depends mightily on the music to frame the action and this score isn't up to the task.
| Original Score: 6/10
Slick entertainment is rarely as, yes, slickly entertaining as it is in Heartbreaker, a French romantic farce that is commercial cinema at its most successful.
Heartbreaker relies far too heavily on the charm and attractiveness of romantic leads whose chemistry is lukewarm at best to sell a groaning collection of rom-com clichés.
| Original Score: C
Labors to channel old fashioned Hollywood sophistication as unsuccessfully as any average 21st century rom-com, it just has subtitles and gorgeous Monaco locations to distract you along the way.
