I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
They Will Love You For Richer. And Leave You For Poorer!
Max and Page are a mother and daughter con team. Max seduces wealthy men into marrying her, and then Page seduces them into infidelity so Max can rake them over the divorce court coals. And then it's on to the next victim
Lo que empieza como una divertida comedia de original planteamiento se desinfla sin remedio mediado el (largísimo, dicho sea de paso) metraje, justo cuando desaparece de escena el personaje de Gene Hackman, cuya caracterización de anciano decrépito es un logro.
A partir de ahí, Las Seductoras pasa a ser una película vulgar, aburrida y previsible, incapaz de dar ningún giro que resucite la chispa inicial.
"Heartbreakers" is a solid rom-com featuring a mother daughter duo who take on rich men in the romance scam. Naturally things go wrong when the daughter, Paige (Jennifer Love), falls in love. Typical caper style humour with just enough substance to be interesting. There is a brilliant example of "the flop" in a hotel lobby, and as someone who has worked in 5 star hotels this got a good laugh out of me.
Doppi giochi e il velato sapore dell'imbroglio. Una commedia gradevole con un cast notevole (Gene Hackman su tutti).
I just don't remember finding this terribly funny, and I had a huge crush on Hewitt at the time so that's surprising. I'm sure I'd have been even more disappointed if I realized this was coming from David Mirkin, the showrunner for The Simpsons during some of its greatest years.
In true mainstream original-but-not-that-original form (and despite many glaring flaws), Heartbreakers is *easy* to watch, so entertaining as to foil the mind: Through twists, dialogue exchanges and sheer volume, our interest never flags, even when we know that some of what we are watching is rather stale to say the least.
Really long and I think everyone in the cast minus Lee plays a totally unlikable character. They even make Hewitt a bad person to root for. The whole movie is about screwing people over too. Just not a very fun film, despite the great cast.
