Kudos, that's what.

Heartbreaker isn't great cinema. Yet it gives great escapist burger — In-N-Out, say, compared to the McDonald's deep fry of gender-flipped similar Hollywood exercise Failure to Launch in 2006. Yeah it's easy, but you won't feel cheap the morning after.

HEARTBREAKER opens Fri/17 in Bay Area theaters.
