This was a very fun story. It isn't a completely original idea, but somehow it is better in French.

Pursued by creditors and helped by his married sister, a man is hired to break up a happy woman's wedding.
Stuck between screwball comedy that allows Alex to emerge unscathed from a high-speed collision with a car and honest romance that features Alex and Juliette staring longingly into the sunset, Heartbreaker is a mixed bag that is charming and funny when it's good and insufferably sophomoric when it's bad. Its understanding of relationships seems drawn from Cosmo articles as the film expects us to be that a few faked tears will destroy a relationship, but the stars, Romain Duris and Vanessa Paradis, are able to make badly written scenes plausible.
Overall, I liked Heartbreaker in spite of itself.

Charming. Yes, that is a good word to describe this one. Highly improbable situations and a highly predictable story, but this film still managed to enchant, and yes, to actually prompt laughter! Romain Duris as Alex, the professional relationship buster, and Vanessa Paradis as Juliette, his latest target, sparkle in this French romantic comedy. The supporting cast is nearly perfect as well. The dialog crackles, the villains are drawn largely (and physically large) and the action is practically non-stop. There is a lot going on, but the crux of the story is about the sparks between the two principals. A lovely, lively, ultimately entertaining film.

Heartbreaker is a laugh outloud and tender French romantic comedy. Intriguing plotline. First time I've really seen Johnny Depp's former love and mother of his children in a film. The real charming standout is Romain Duris, the lead character.

As far as romantic comedies go, this is up there with French Kiss and Starship Troopers.

Chaumeil hands us a smooth and enjoyable work, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Nothing more than a funny and cool romantic comedy with subtle slashes of a different action because of the 'breaking relationships' plot, always in a soft touch. I point out the chemistry between the two main actors, one of the film's main qualities, and specially Romain Duris that is becoming an essential actor of french contemporary cinema, commercial as independent.

A 'feel-good' movie destined to amuse the public and that achieves well his mission in a dynamic and pleasuring way

Goofy and fun, although highly predictable as most romantic comedies have become, regardless of the country of origin. At least it's set in a beautiful locale with a gorgeous language. Although I can't say the same for the female love interest, who kind of reminded me of a skeleton.

I'm not a huge Paradais fan but the movie is sweet.
