The Breaker Upperers

Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.

Watch Trailer

“ The film coasts off the energy and rapport of this affable pair, whose smart-mouthed performances are full of pep and fizz.”

Guardian

“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.”
