Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt are Heartbreakers.

Set in Palm Beach, Heartbreakers follows the escapades of Max (Weaver) and Page (Hewitt) Connors, two con artists who use beauty and brains to bilk big bucks from their perspective suitors. Page’s plan for a solo career is threatened when confronted by the IRS (in the form of Anne Bancroft, The Slender Thread) for back taxes. So, it’s time for one last job…and what a last job it’ll be! With their sights set on tobacco tycoon William B. Tensey (Gene Hackman, The Conversation) it looks like their problems are solved. Enter former con Dean Cummano (Ray Liotta, Goodfellas) and potential con (and romantic interest) Jack Withrowe (Jason Lee, Almost Famous), and the stage is for comic confusion.

The movie co-stars Jeffrey Jones (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), Nora Dunn (Bruce Almighty), Sarah Silverman (School of Rock) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover).
