The Breaker Upperers (2018)




Critic Consensus: The Breaker Upperers brings the laughs early and often, thanks to the dry wit -- and effervescent chemistry -- of writer-director-star duo Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami.

Their film feels marvelously shaggy around the edges - their personalities pop - until after a whiplash-funny first hour, they play it safe with an everyone-gets-a-hug Paul Feig-style climax.

Most importantly of all: it's funny. Really, really funny, consistently and constantly. The pair are a wonderful double-act on screen.

If we have the good sense we will throw our money at writer-director-stars Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek, because they certainly have a whole lot more to say.

The first film by a New Zealand female comedy duo, it's in-your-face bawdy, outspoken but also very funny showcase for their multiple talents.

"The Breaker Upperers" is a film that I had a chance to see twice in one day. After the first viewing, with a second helping on offer, I did not hesitate, not for a second.
