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 never expected this movie to be as funny as it was. Ben Stiller is a funny guy, but this movie was a lot funnier than I'd expected. Jerry Stiller's hot tub scene really caught me as I sipped my coffee and nearly choked to death. The whole movie was one laugh after the other. I laughed so hard when Malin Akerman used the ladies room while Ben sat on the bed and well I don't want to be a buzz kill, but it was Hilarious what she said!! Like I said, this was a surprise, I knew it would be funny with Stiller, but this made me laugh so hard I cried!! I don't think anyone wouldn't enjoy this nut fest of a movie. So much off the cuff humor, slap stick style, I will give this 2 thumbs up for sure!

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.

I love this movie, I like Ben Stiller movies, this is funny, the cd quality is good, I got it as a present for my sister in Christmas, and she enjoyed it a lot, especially the parts when the mariachi band comes on singing "mariachi loco", very funny

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.

Waited six years to see this movie because the initial reviews were mixed. I was pleasantly surprised. I rarely laugh out loud, but did several times. And rarer still to laugh out loud right at then end. Stiller's superb at playing the poor sap who can't do anything right; his facial expressions were spot on as his life spun out of control. I loved "There Something About Mary," so I should have seen this sooner.

One the finest films Ben Stiller has done...! Not so much a comedy, as it presents rather droll, unusual, and adult, entertainment. This is a redoing of a film of the same name from 1972, which featured Elaine May as Director, and perhaps to a degree, writer. The modern film [2007] by the Farrelly brothers, is not as serious and dead pan, but it is a decided improvement being due to the fact that it is broadly speaking lighter fare, and offering larger scope. The Farrelly's attempt to be more illustrative of the man's side, while nonetheless retaining the whimsical comedy and basic dignity that was so characteristic of the Elaine May and Mike Nichols movies of the 60s/70s, and which made them in a manner so charming and notable. A refinement of the original vision, therefore, and highly recommended.
