Preview, Kiwi laughs come fast and furious in “The Breaker Upperers”

It’s such an obvious concept that you feel you’ve seen an “SNL” sketch or two on the subject. Maybe a Matthew McConaughey/Kate Hudson comedy about it.

Professionals who consult with you about a relationship you want to end, and then play-act the perfect way for you to get out of it, no muss, no fuss — disrupting weddings, helping fake your death, “going missing,” at least four black-out gags here gave me a laugh in this trailer.

As it played SXSW and opened in New Zealand, let’s hope Sony Classics or Samuel Goldwyn got hold of “The Breaker Upperers,” from the country that gave us “Flight of the Conchords” so we can see it and laugh at the gags and the funniest version of the Down Under Accent.
