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.

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.

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 There is odd and there is Farrelly Brothers odd... December 12, 2009
Format:DVD
Talk about a movie that takes you, spins your head around in circles and dumps you all over the place the Heartbreak Kid breaks a lot of rules of film making and comedy and does it well.

It tells the story of a single guy Ben Stiller who is unable to find a woman, his sex obsessed father (played by his father Jerry) and his best pal Mac who are all looking to get him married off.

The movie starts to get you invested in his plight as he goes from embarrassment to embarrassment until he seems to come across the right girl, Lila.

In a mere 5 weeks pushed by his father and friend he marries her, and it is on the drive down to their honeymoon retreat to Mexico that things get interesting...

...that's where he meets the girl of his dreams, Miranda.

From here the plot twist and turns from disaster to disaster, in terms of the comedy the Farrellys set you up for every turn from Carlos Mencia through Miranda's family to the twins who after a brief introduction at the beginning of the film are used for great comic effect. The reaction of his father and best friends to his martial problems made me instantly think of the famous Three Stooges short The Three Stooges Collection Volume 2 Husbands Beware.

The comedy becomes so odd and the situations so ridiculous (one scene with Jerry Stiller on the phone with his son from Vegas still gives me the shudders) that you don't know what to do. The Farrellys slowly build up sympathy for Eddie as the film and then slowly bit by bit start to remove it until you wonder if you want him to get the girl of his dreams.
