Heartbreakers is a 2001 comedy film that tells the story of a mother-daughter team of con artists, Max and Page Conners, played by Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt, respectively, who scam wealthy men out of their money by marrying them and then promptly filing for divorce. The duo's latest target is William Tensy, played by Gene Hackman, a tobacco millionaire who they plan to deceive and rob of his fortune.

Max and Page are experts in the art of seduction and manipulation, often using their feminine wiles to lure unsuspecting men into their web of deceit. However, as they prepare to pull off their latest heist on William, things don't quite go according to plan. William proves to be a wily opponent who is more than capable of playing the game at their own level.

As the scam unfolds, the relationship between Max and Page becomes strained, with each woman jockeying for control and trying to outsmart the other. Adding to the mix is Dean Cumanno, played by Ray Liotta, a private investigator who is hired by William to investigate Max and Page's past marriages and expose their fraudulent activities.

Despite the seemingly serious nature of their illegal activities, the movie is filled with comedic moments and light-hearted banter between the characters. The film relies heavily on the chemistry between Weaver and Hewitt, who play the roles of mother and daughter with ease. The two actresses bounce off each other well, delivering the witty one-liners and comedic timing required for the film's humor to succeed.

Heartbreakers also boasts a strong supporting cast, with Hackman delivering a fun and memorable performance as the unsuspecting William Tensy. Liotta, meanwhile, adds a touch of pathos to his character as a jaded private investigator struggling with his own personal issues. Angela Elayne Gibbs also delivers a standout performance as Gloria Vogal, a wealthy widow who provides Max and Page with much-needed advice and support.

The film's direction and pacing are tight, with director David Mirkin seamlessly blending the comedic and dramatic aspects of the film. The comedic scenes are well-timed and never feel overdone or forced, while the dramatic moments are poignant and well-acted.

One of the film's most memorable scenes involves Max and Page performing a musical number in a hotel bar. The humorous and well-choreographed scene showcases the actresses' singing and dancing abilities, while also providing a fun and catchy tune that will remain in viewers' heads long after the movie has ended.

Overall, Heartbreakers is a fun and entertaining comedy that blends humor and drama in a way that will appeal to a wide audience. The film features strong performances from its talented cast, witty dialogue, and memorable scenes that will stay with viewers long after the credits have rolled.

Heartbreakers is a 2001 comedy with a runtime of 2 hours and 3 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 47.
