The Breaker Upperers

SOME have compared wacky new Kiwi comedy The Breaker Upperers to Bridesmaids. That’s not quite right.

They are similar in the sense that they’re both female-led comedies that unapologetically relish in being “unladylike”. But if you’re looking for a spiritual twin, The Breaker Upperers is a lot closer to TV series Broad City, with its story of complex and unbreakable female friendship and a fresh, irresistible looseness.

Written, directed and starring Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek, The Breaker Upperers is packed full of that awkward, dry-as-a-desert Kiwi wit — the unmistakeable rhythm of a bloody good time at the movies. Plus, it’s produced by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) and that is a man who knows talent.
