The film manages to be several different comedic plots at the same time; odd couple pairing, screwball antics, quirky romance making it comedic gold that isn't present in it's Hollywood and even indie comparatives.

In a time when female filmmakers are at the lowest end of industry statistics, The Breaker Upperers deserves attention on principle alone with [Jackie] van Beek and [Madeleine] Sami proving how gracefully the heavy lifting of constructing a film can be.

It's crude, vulgar and slapdash, so don't go along expecting the Lubitsch touch.
