The Heartbreak Kid [Blu-ray]

The plot has elements of both comedy and drama making it rather difficult to label it as one or the other; it's actually a bit of both. Very well written and very well presented, the movie is without a doubt guaranteed to provide more than just a few laughs, not to mention a few tears. The film is simple enough, but does a great job of describing people's every day lives and the problems they face.
Ben Stiller, Malin Akerman (who is GORGEOUS!), Michelle Monaghan, Jerry Stiller, and the rest of the cast, carry out their respective roles very well.
The setting, the plot, the dialogues, the humor, and the music are all good.
In a nutshell, though not a masterpiece it will surely provide for an evening's entertainment.
Maybe it was because I wasn't expecting it, but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Now just because it's a Farrelly Brothers movie, didn't guarantee that it would be a good or funny movie. They've got some bombs in their catalog. But "Heartbreak Kid" is definitely a 4 out of 5 stars. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say it's a 7.5. Not great. But entertaining as all hell!
I would suspect that people that got offended by this movie, are the types of people that get offended by films by Kevin Smith, Todd Philips, the Wayans and probably even Judd Apatow. Those are the kind of people that I try to avoid in my daily life. This movie definitely has some "raunchy" moments. But nowhere near what these prudes complaining about it here would have you to believe.
Pick it up and laugh. Let the naysayers go line the pockets of PJ Hogan and Chris Columbus.

One the finest films Ben Stiller has done...! Not so much a comedy, as it presents rather droll, unusual, and adult, entertainment. Read morePublished 1 month ago by J. G. Lewis
