My boyfriend and I were scrolling Netflix the other day, and Breaker Upperers came up as a recommended movie. It looked silly, and then we saw that it was by Taika Waititi, and knew we had to watch it. Take Waititi is responsible for What We Do In The Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok. You may see some familiar WWDITS faces in here, though!
The Breaker Upperers are a duo that does a couples’ dirty work for them, they break them up! These two women have many different ways to break folks up; claiming that they’re missing, pretending to be the other woman, saying that they’ve died, it’s a whole business situation. But when one of them starts to befriend some of the broken up people, some issues come about.
This movie is about friendship and love and how dang awkward breaking up is. It’s beautiful and hilarious (something Waititi is known for), and I absolutely adored it.
If you’ve got Netflix and are looking for some fun, lazy day movie to watch, check out the Breaker Upperers! It’ll be a great time, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
