Nigel's Review of Heartbreakers
Heartbreakers was a funny movie and one of the very few good movies Jennifer Love Hewitt was in. This is because she was surrounded by a strong cast of actors such as Ray Liotta, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Lee and Gene Hackman. And the story of a mother-daughter team conning rich men out of their money was an original plot. The mother Max has a low opinion of men because of her one bad experience when she dated a guy in high school who got her pregnant and then left her to raise her daugther Page all by herself. Later on in life, she took to being a con artist who married weak rich men, used her daughter as bait a day after the wedding ceremony (they did not know this was her daughter), caught them in the act and then divorced them for a big settlement.
