To fully appreciate the pleasures of Pascal Chaumeil's debut feature, Heartbreaker, it helps to know-and love-Dirty Dancing.
January 19, 2013
Like "How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days," only funnier, fresher. And French.

This is fun, frothy screwball stuff that won't demand much more cerebral participation than reading the subtitles. But, like Duris, it should charm your pants off.

A romantic comedy with a decidedly French twist ... There's bound to be a Hollywood remake, but you can be sure it won't have anything like the same élan.
December 27, 2010
The formulaic feel of (this) enjoyable rom-com leads one to suspect the French are now making films with a clear view to being Hollywoodised.

In being farcical instead of cute, Heartbreaker reveals itself as a welcome treat. It leaves you knowingly happy.

December 20, 2010
While it opens with a promising start, this quickly becomes a vacuous and formulaic romantic comedy.
December 20, 2010
A romantic comedy that is charming and light as a souffle.

December 15, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

At its core, the film fails to convince us
December 15, 2010
A funny and utterly charming romantic comedy
November 28, 2010
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.

"Unapologetically silly."

November 4, 2010
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.

It ain't all "Breathless" and "Jules and Jim" in Paris, apparently; they can churn out glossy, formulaic entertainment like "Heartbreaker," too.

October 27, 2010
Manages to be such a pleasant little soufflé of a movie that it's hard not to like it on its own terms.

Hollywood should sit up and take notice of how to revitalize the romantic comedy with the fresh and original spin from director Pascal Chaumeil in his feature film debut.

October 22, 2010
"Heartbreaker" has some amusing moments and gorgeous settings (the Riviera), but it never achieves the smooth slickness director Pascal Chaumeil aims for.

What "Heartbreaker" lacks in suspense it makes up for in charm, especially when Duris and Paradis start re-enacting numbers from "Dirty Dancing."

Pascal Chaumeil's debut rom-com gets by with a little help from Romain Duris and the enduring beauty of Vanessa Paradis. He may not be so lucky next time.
