Storyline

Driven by a history of dating pitfalls and frustration with men, Alexis and her best friend Lindsay decide to turn the tables and devise a plan to lure unsuspecting men close enough to knock them out and drag them back to their lair for their own satisfaction. When an absent father and an obsessive ex-boyfriend force Alexis to confront her issues with men, the girls' plan goes awry and Alexis falls head over heels in love with one of her male conquests. Lindsay, consumed by her darker nature, decides to go out on the hunt alone, leading to her arrest. In the end, the girls reunite and recognize the strength of their friendship and that ultimately; their own self worth determines how men will treat them. Written by Official site

Mindnumbing...
11 January 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Based from the cover of the movie, you'd expect this to be another teenage comedy movie, but it didn't turn out to be that. The movie tells a story about two women who start using men for sex. Somehow the stereotypical image of the approach to sex is reversed in this movie, and that was a refreshing way to go at it.

As for the cast and the acting, actually people in the movie did good jobs with their roles and characters. Cameron Richardson, playing Alexis, came off as a slightly gullible and lovable character, while Sophie Monk, playing Lindsay, was the aggressive vixen. And these two carried the movie, with their charms and beauty.

Though, I prefer a movie having more carrying it than just two pretty ladies. And there is a handful of familiar faces making appearances throughout the movie. Tom Arnold playing Alexis's father. Tia Carrere playing the gunstore owner wearing pink camouflage! That was weird, just where do you need to camouflage yourself in pink? And I would say that the best performance in the movie was the one done by Chris Kattan, in the role of Hertz Waters.

The movie isn't all bad, there are moments where it had potential. And actually there are lots of nice scenery and views in the movie, good camera work as well.

But as for the story, it was fairly weak and failed to come off more than mediocre. I am sure the idea was really good on paper, but on screen it didn't stand out in a memorable way.

I managed to sit through the entire movie, though I was tempted to get up and find something else to do a couple of times. I just hoped the movie would pick up and become more than it was, but no. The movie just went onward in a monotone dull pace, leaving you able to disconnect your brain entirely and just sit there and glare at the screen.

If you are in for an evening's worth of entertainment from the comedy genre, there are better choices than "Hard Breakers" available.
