The Broken Hearts Club

Critics Consensus

The Broken Hearts Club often feels like an amalgam of 70s sitcoms -- though a hunky lead and a sweet central romance provide soapy delights.

Movie Info

In the palm-shaded oasis of West Hollywood, we meet Dennis, a promising photographer. As he prepares to celebrate his twenty-eighth birthday, he laments, ' I can't decide if my friends are the best or worse thing that ever happened to me.' The gang includes Benji, the punkish innocent with a penchant for gym bodies; Howie, the psychology grad student who thinks too much and lives too little; Cole, the charismatic actor who accidentally keeps stealing everybody's guy; Patrick, the cynical quipster, and Taylor, resident drama queen, who, until recently, prided himself on his long-term relationship. Providing sage advice and steady work is Jack, the beloved patriarch whose restaurant is a haven for them all.

Audience Reviews for The Broken Hearts Club

½

One of the best films targeting the gay interest group without focusing on pessimistic elements. It's a film about the friendship between a group of gay men as they deal with their problems. It has surprisingly good performance from everyone, plus it has a nice message by showing the characters as normal people with normal problems. A rare gem for people interested in this type of cinema.

I had never seen this before, just heard a lot about it. I kinda loved it. The cast is great and filled with some popular actors I'd only seen in one or two big roles so this was interesting. Fairly light-hearted but a lot of witty dialogue and loveable characters. It also rekindled a crush I have on Andrew Keegan.

For romantic comedy, this film was pretty flat

A very interesting cast for a mostly average film. Nothing ground breaking here, but it was an enjoyable little journey. Seemed to enforce stereotypes (there is always at least a little truth in them) while giving a fairly realistic look at some of the (internal) issues that the gay community has to deal with. A bit like a gay version of one of those "Lifetime" movies.
