    Movie synopsis
    The Farrelly Brothers add their trademark bounty of bodily functions to this remake of Elaine May's 1972 comedy, THE HEARTBREAK KID. This time around Ben Stiller plays Eddie Cantrow, a 40-year-old bachelor who is tired of having his foulmouthed father (Jerry Stiller) and henpecked friend (Rob Corddry) give him a hard time for not being married. So when he meets the seemingly perfect Lila (Malin Ackerman), he decides to marry her--despite knowing her for only six weeks. On their honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, he realizes his mistake when Lila reveals her true colors, which turn out to be quite ugly. While Lila recovers from a sunburn, Eddie meets fellow vacationer Miranda (Michelle Monaghan) and falls in love. He must break the news to both women before they find out the truth.After the more standard romantic comedy of FEVER PITCH, Bobby and Peter Farrelly are back to the gross-out comedy that made them famous in films such as THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. This is the first time they've re-teamed with Stiller since that landmark film, and it proves a far better marriage than Eddie and Lila's. Ackerman may be most famous to date for a small role in HAROLD & KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE, but she's fearless in this part. The Farrellys have always been fans of bodily humor, and Ackerman's Lila gets to be the butt of the joke most often, largely thanks to her character's deviated septum. There are several moments here that threaten to top the infamous hair-gel scene in THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY as far as groans and giggles go.

    "[M]errily quintessential Farrelly....Stiller is perfect....Akerman does a fine job in this silly role, recalling a younger Cameron Diaz..."

    Good comedy for adults only

    Due to the crude language, nudity, and explicit sex scenes, I would recommend THE HEARTBREAK KID for adults only. If you are not bothered by these aspects, this film is funny, yet disturbingly realistic at the same time. Ben Stiller plays a 40-year-old man whose past relationships have always ended due to his fear of committment. Finally, he meets a seemingly perfect woman and marries her after only six weeks. He even holds off on sex until the honeymoon. By society's standards he finally does the RIGHT thing, but it goes horribly wrong. Many men would be delighted at the wife's idea of normal sex; Stiller is frightened and exhausted. Then his wife gets a severe sunburn and is confined to their hotel room. Stiller wanders around the resort by himself and meets another woman. She seems perfect, more perfect than his wife --- although astute viewers might see the handwriting on the wall: if he had in fact married her first, he might well have been driven crazy by her eccentric relatives. In the end, though Stiller believes he has finally gotten what he wants, the real message seems to be that some people really are NOT cut out for marriage. As a serial monogamist, Stiller was happy with each girlfriend until the girlfriends broke up with him and they remained friends. When he listens to his friend, father, and girlfriend and gets married, he turns into a liar and cheater who feels miserable, guilty, and ends up hurting his wife and himself. Stiller's character, who can't love a person through better AND worse, and who is always looking for greener grass, should have remained single. To thine own self be true!

    My Heart Was Fine But my Sense of Humour Is Now Broken

    With all do respect to the script writers and the many other people that come up with funny movies. There are things that you can really laugh at and there are things that are just plain gross.

    Well, this was one of those movies that you just think that the most uncouth comedian minds in the world get together and throw everything in including the kitchen sink.

    I will say that there are a few good lines of conversation that go on between the brothers that are memorable and hilarious, but the rest of the movie was extremely painful to watch.

    You didn't feel sorry for Ben Stillers character even after he spends 6 months trying to get back across the border. The ending was so lame and morally reprehensible that I couldn't believe they even brought his girlfriend back into the picture.

    Ben always plays semi-neurotic, anxious, and totally disfunctional characters probably very well because he is so good at it. I'm not saying that this character doesn't have real problems but he should have seen it coming much sooner than on his honeymoon.

    If I hadn't been so bored, I probably would have not watched this however, usually, if I buy a movie to watch and turn around and sell it beforehand, then I often feel like I wasted my money, so I wind up feeling obligated to watch it. But, this time, I'm really sorry that I even started this one.

    On the laugh index I'd say about 5 small chuckles every 20 minutes or so.

    This film get a mere 2/5 just because it has a few funny uncomfortable moments.

    "Good Romantic Comedy!"

    Ben Stiller, Malin Akerman and Michelle Monaghan star in this
    2007 Farrelly Brothers comedy. A married man falls for a woman
    on his honeymoon. Ben is great as usual and Michelle and Malin
    are also great in this. This dvd has nice picture and sound plus
    neat extras. I recommend this good romantic comedy.

    Painful to Watch

    The Heartbreak Kid was painful to watch. :( I'd give it 0/5, but that is not an option.

    This was billed as a "gag/fun" movie. However, the jokes were all just bad.

    Watching poor Ben Stiller in this film was sad. He looked like he just tossed his name in the ring to make a little money. I felt like sending him $1 to help the poor guy out. What a drop off in the career from Something about Mary & Night at the Museum!

    This movie is not worth your time to watch. :( Stay away. Ugly and it is a train wreck. :(

    0/5 (forced to give 1/5).
