Editorial Reviews

Big laughs head south of the border in the Farrelly Brothers' newest twist on boy-meets-girl. When the single and indecisive Eddie (Ben Stiller) meets the sexy and beautiful Lila (Malin Akerman), the guy who could never pull the trigger jumps the gun. While honeymooning in Mexico, Eddie discovers he's made a really big mistake. He soon meets Miranda (Michelle Monaghan), his real soul mate. But when the love of your life isn't your wife, things can get quickly out of control. Now it will take some desperate measures to turn his honeymoon from hell into the perfect romantic getaway.

I appear to be in the minority, but I couldn't stop laughing during this movie so I have to defend it against the other reviewers. I went to see it at the theater, and it reminded me a lot of "There's Something About Mary". Of course Ben Stiller's character is a heel, that's the whole point of the movie. He marries a girl that he barely knows, realizes that she's not the person he thought she was (she's very disturbed, in a Farrelly Brothers sort of way) , meets a normal (and I might add very hot) girl while on his honeymoon, and falls in love with her. Just by knowing that plot, that Ben Stiller is in it, and that the Farrelly Brothers directed it, you've really gotta see this movie for what it is. It's not Shakespeare. It's just a very funny, very ADULT summer comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get over yourself, it's funny January 7, 2008
By zooni
Format:DVD
I very rarely rent comedies, but I'm a fan of Ben Stiller. I like the neurotic comedy thing so Ben does it for me. This movie started off kind of dumb and boring and I was like, "uh oh....another waste". Finally the story got interesting when he met the psycho girlfriend. I was totally impressed with her performance (Mila Akerman?). She reminds me of Cameron Diaz. But if Cameron Diaz played the part of the girlfriend, I know I wouldn't have liked this movie, she's too over the top and self-aware and a crap actress. What I loved about this movie is the unraveling of how much of a loser she turns out to be. I enjoyed watching Ben Stiller have to deal with her and slowly start to realize what he had got himself into. I was like, "ha ha, you ended up with a looneybird". If you have issues with men, you actually get enjoyment out of seeing him all dissapointed and screwed over. There are some dull moments, it's not a perfect comedy, but overall, "Hearbreak Kid" had me laughing out loud in the genuine giddy way near tears. It's extremely rare for me to laugh, I'm sort of jaded like everybody these days. I think Ben Stiller is fantastic, and I loved Mila's performance, she made the movie for me. This is now one of my favourite comedies and worth owning, it deserves more praise than what it's getting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Comedy Lovers; This Is Not Your Movie July 22, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Ha ha. I've read some of the reviews of this movie and laughed. People who thought this was a romantic comedy and got disappointed, good! I was just the opposite. My wife turned this movie on while I was fielding some email, and I would peek up every now and then to see what she was watching. My wife is a big "romantic comedy" and chick flick lover, so when I saw Ben Stiller, I zoned out thinking it was probably some crap like "Along Came Polly". But then I saw that Stiller was playing the "annoyed guy" role and started watching more, then laughing, then launched IMDb and saw that it was a Farrelly Brothers film and started to get into it. My wife went to bed halfway through it and I continued the movie in the bedroom and laughed my butt off!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as bad as most have said. January 2, 2008
Format:DVD
I'll start this out by saying this is one of the better movies Ben Stiller has done. It's not as good as Something about Mary or Meet the Parents, but it's certainly better than Dodgeball or similar movies such as Duplex and Along came Polly. I tend to judge a comedy by the amount of laughs I get out of it and I had several "lol" moments in this movie. Sure, some of the humor is crude and some of it is done in bad taste, but that is to be expected in a Farrelly brothers movie. I thought the way that Stiller's character finds out all the bad and surprising history of his new bride was very entertaining. It's worth at least a rent if you like the Farrelly brothers movies or are a fan of Ben Stiller.

There is a smattering of laughs in this 2007 comedy, the latest over-the-top concoction from the Farrelly Brothers, but the laugh quotient is not nearly enough to sustain interest in this particularly mean-spirited movie. Ostensibly a remake of the 1972 Elaine May-directed comedy penned by Neil Simon, this film trivializes the original's overriding theme of the have-nots coveting the privileged lives of the haves by focusing more strictly on the premise of a lifelong bachelor who decides to marry only to find out it's a grave mistake and moves from one deception to the next to get out of it once he thinks he has found his soul mate. It should not come as a big surprise that Farrellys focus most of their attention on the humiliation and gross-out antics, but their techniques seem more contrived and their set-ups more scripted this time around, especially when Judd Apatow has done a better job humanizing such hi-jinks in movies like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Moreover, the film shows a particularly cruel streak toward the two women involved in the shenanigans. The bloom may finally be off the hair goo.

The plot starts out promisingly in a particularly picturesque San Francisco (thanks to Matthew Leonetti's crisp cinematography) as Eddie Cantrow, the lonely owner of a San Francisco sporting-goods store, has a history of averting commitment in his long-term relationships.
