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.

The script is a marvel of understated hilarity.

It's crude, vulgar and slapdash, so don't go along expecting the Lubitsch touch.

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 Breaker Upperers is a joy from start to finish.
