Breaking up is never an easy thing to do.

So why not hire a team to do it for you.

Those that wish to be out of a relationship make use of The Breaker Upperers service, who will, for a fee, take on the task of getting you out of a relationship via a singing telegram, posing as Police, or even as a fling on the side.

But all of the negativity of breaking relationships also means that the two Breaker Upperers; Mel (Madeline Sami) and Jen (Jackie Van Beek) forget what it’s like to have a relationship or even friendships of their own.

Jen, being a prickly type of person does not really like to associate with others and takes her work very seriously, after having her heart broken fifteen years ago.

Mel on the other hand is more outgoing and begins to make friends with one of their ‘victims’ of a break up job and even dates one of their clients; Jordan (James Rolleston).

What plays out is a slightly inconsistent, cringing and awkward film that will have you laughing out loud in parts. Kiwi humour at it’s best, The Breaker Upperers takes on a serious theme and with tongue in cheek, runs with it. It also teaches a few lessons along the way as the two characters gain and lose friendship and love themselves.

A must see more than once film.
