Overall, it's good, not great. This is a pleasant enough but small English romantic comedy.

It's what the Brits themselves might call fair to middling.
April 26, 2002
...an adorably whimsical comedy that deserves more than a passing twinkle.

No worse a film than Breaking Out, and Breaking Out was utterly charming.

A pleasing but routine British comedy set in an English prison.

A bit of jailhouse schlock, sure, but you'll enjoy doing the time.

The movie has a raffish charm and good-hearted characters, and like The Full Monty it makes good use of the desperation beneath the comedy.

Mike Leigh mainstay Timothy Spall deftly shades in the designated goner, fellow Still Crazy alum Bill Nighy is sweetly wispy as the capable fop, and anger-management counselor Olivia Williams trembles pleasantly as usual.

Not as good as The Full Monty, but a really strong second effort.

It is amusing, and that's all it needs to be.

You'd think by now America would have had enough of plucky British eccentrics with hearts of gold. Yet the act is still charming here.

Lightly reflective and consistently entertaining, Lucky Break is an easy-to-take diversion.

This is mostly well-constructed fluff, which is all it seems intended to be.

Like The Full Monty, this is sure to raise audience's spirits and leave them singing long after the credits roll.
February 23, 2002
A wildly funny prison caper.
