After the little white lies of Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997), director David Mirkin focuses on scheming of a different sort in Heartbreakers. Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt play Max and Page Conners, a mother and daughter who share everything with each other: relationship advice, hair and makeup hints, and the money they win in costly divorce settlements with rich men. When the film opens, the Conners are putting the finishing touches on conning Dean (Ray Liotta), an auto-body shop owner. When the dust from that scam clears, Page announces she's ready to move away from her mother and set up shop on her own -- but in order to clear an outstanding debt, Max insists they bankrupt one more bachelor together. They settle upon phlegmatic Palm Springs widower William B. Tensy (Gene Hackman), a chain smoker with a heart of gold and a similarly bountiful bank account. Only two things stand in their way: Tensy's Teutonic caretaker Miss Madress (Nora Dunn) and beachfront bartender Jack (Jason Lee), a wry stargazer with whom Page becomes unexpectedly smitten. Heartbreakers is the third collaboration from writers Steven Mazur and Paul Guy, whose previous screwball comedy was 1997's international hit, Liar Liar. Michael Hastings, Rovi

Gene Hackman acting the stooge. The multiple wedding cons that two of America's sweethearts (Weaver and Hewitt) run go counter to their acting images and give us new perspective on their talents. The producers didn't know what they had when they failed to even mention Jason Lee on the tagging of this movie. Anne Bancroft playing a nasty underhanded role is a hoot and maybe her best work since "The Graduate". Ray Liotta plays so many character twists, i wonder how he kept track of them. This film is a plain delight in a 'come on' package. But, have no fears, this is no con of a film. The DVD has behind the scenes, deleted scenes, two dubbed commentaries, one with the director, Weaver and Hewitt having a jolly time recollecting the production. And just two more things: don't play cards for any stakes with Hewitt; and, one of Weaver's ruse characters is a Russian socialite and she's forced to sing a Russian song for a dinner crowd which she does by singing "Back in the USSR" by the Beatles. The movie just has a clip of it while the whole tremendously entertaining effort is in the DVD extra deleted scenes. She sings the whole song in a Russian accent and does a few octaves of range to get it perfect!
