Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Great escapist fun."
‑ Paul Clinton (CNN.com), CNN.com
"Unless you're a Hackman aficionado, there's no reason to bother with Heartbreakers."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Not terrible, it just doesn't work very well."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Mirkin keeps the humor wicked, keeps the rhythm going, and refuses to cave in to sentimentality or overt slapstick."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A light, fun movie in the vein of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Director David Mirkin, whose Romy and Michele's High School Reunion was similarly afflicted, never gets the timing right and allows the story to drag with little internal logic."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"Hits just the right note between naughty and raunchy."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"A funny and utterly charming romantic comedy"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"We can be sure that the makers of this movie know what their product and her assets are and intend to exploit them to the utmost"
‑ Jordan Hiller, Bangitout.com
"Surprisingly, this one is actually very funny and entertaining!"
‑ Paul Salfen, Supercala.com
"Heartbreakers is one of these guilty pleasures."
‑ John Zebrowski, Seattle Times
"There are not enough Hefty bags in all The Home Depots to contain the trash generated by this vulgar burlesque."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"The only contribution--and it's a dubious one--that Mirkin makes in his trifle of a comedy is to feminize the perennially male profession of con artists with a mother-daughter team, played by the regal Sigourney Weaver and sexy Jennifer Love Hewitt."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Perhaps the biggest surprise is Liotta, who turns in a hilarious turn as Dean, in a blatant send-up of his mobster screen persona."
‑ Tom Grealis, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"The opening 10 minutes... set a high-water mark that the rest of the movie valiantly and vainly struggles to reach again."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
