Heartbreaker (L'Arnacoeur) Reviews

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Heartbreaker is a French attempt at an American romantic comedy. At this endeavor it is a total success - in the sense that it's as trite and contrived as most of our romcoms.

James Bond meets Don Juan in this charming French romantic comedy.

Heartbreaker really isn't terrible - there are a few moments of manic slapstick and the actors are charismatic even when their characters are boorish. But it's a movie for people who think movies are about wasting time.

Heartbreaker's best ideas come courtesy of There's Something About Mary, while its worst are ripped straight from the rom-com boilerplate.

Not a complete waste of time, but close.

A light and fluffy internationalised French rom-com, stripped of any quirkiness and with little heat generated between Vanessa Paradis and Roman Duris as romantic leads.

While it opens with a promising start, this quickly becomes a vacuous and formulaic romantic comedy.

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.

Independent

For the most part, though, it's way too broad, and its tacit assumption that the heroine is too stupid to twig she's been played is fairly monstrous. Perhaps you just have to be French.

Romain Duris (Paris) is ridiculously engaging... If only the film had trusted in its own premise, instead of succumbing to the blandness of the conventional.

Yes, Heartbreaker is diverting, intermittently charming and occasionally funny, but it is also a jumble of jammed-together notions.

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.

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.

...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.

There's trouble in Paradis-and in a script that prizes frenzy over any actual feeling.

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.

If the ultra-annoying Hitch happened to be a French film (Le Hitch?), it might be welcomed with the same double standard as this slapsticky rom-com...

Duris shows us his comedy chops and his very useful dance moves, and this might even get a Hollywood remake. But the deja-vu factor is a little too high
