Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An erotic thriller with too many twists and back stories to count."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
"It woefully lacks subtlety and suspense, and its characters aren't the least bit sympathetic."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"This "Shadow of a Doubt" riff is a bisexual Hitchcock teaser."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"[Zima] saves some of this plodding thriller - a police investigation alone seems to go on forever - but not enough to make the steaminess pay off."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Gratuitous sex, double-crosses and more gratuitous sex await in the silly but always-entertaining sexcapade."
‑ Phil Villarreal,
"Babbit's poky pacing ... doesn't do either star any favors, and anyone tempted to watch for prurient reasons should know the film is more basic-cable-at-10 p.m. sexy than after-midnight-on-Showtime sexy."
‑ Keith Phipps, The Dissolve
"What remains is a bland, perfunctory erotic thriller that lacks the courage of its would-be-trashy convictions ..."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"Babbitt loves her actors and gives them fun stuff to do. If she works with similar themes in the future, I hope she gives her performers and her clearly fertile imagination more room to play."
‑ Steven Boone,
"At the center of Breaking the Girls, festering like an open sore, is the stereotype of the psycho lesbian bitch."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
