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.

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.

The Heartbreak Kid brings to the screen the story of a man whose fear of commitment has led him down the path of loneliness as one after another the people he knows get married and settle down. When he does a meet, and fall, for an attractive young woman who feels the same way he wastes not time (literally) in marrying her. Things get a bit complicated, however, when the effects of his rash decision, surface during their Mexican honeymoon...
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.

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!

This is a good Ben Stiller movie with several shocking parts and lots of laughs. Malin Akerman is one of the hottest actresses around yet this movie almost ruined it for me, not for bad acting but the character she plays is psycho. All in all good entertaining movie and addition to comedy collection.

If you like comedies, you'll love this movie, to me it was non-stop laughs. People should realize that comedy movies are meant to make us laugh and feel good (and they do not necessarily need to be taken seriously) and this movie does just that.

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.
