The Breaker Upperers (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Breaker Upperers
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.
To call the script "shaggy" would be far too generous. It's baggy and flat, and at its worst falls back into extremely tired (and insulting) tropes.
The kind of female-focused buddy comedy that cinema could use considerably more of.
The bad scenes are overwhelmed by the good, the laughs outweigh the mis-steps, the characters are great, and Sami and van Beek do an excellent job.
The Breaker Upperers is packed full of that awkward, dry-as-a-desert Kiwi wit - the unmistakable rhythm of a bloody good time at the movies.
