The Heartbreak Kid

If you have something wrong with you and actually liked this movie, I suggest that you stop reading this review. That means its pretty negative. The only positive thing I have to say about this is that it was pretty entertaining.
Eddie (Ben Stiller) is a man who just can't settle down, but decides after a while he wants to get married. He meets a woman name Lila (Malin Akerman), who seems sweet and funny, but after the wedding is she all she seems? Eddie realises he has made one of the biggest mistakes of his life, and things only get worse when he meets Miranda (Michelle Monaghan), a totally cool woman who is not embarassing to be around.
This was a bad, bad movie. I'm not really sure if I can stress that any more. It is formulaic, but takes that formula and makes it even worse than it already is. If you made a list of all the bad things that happen in movies, this movie has them all. The only thing holding it up was a good 'comedic' performance from Malin Akerman and the sweetness from Michelle Monaghan. Thank the lord Ben Stiller was in Tropic Thunder, because after seeing this I vowed that I would hate him forever.
Really, do not watch this unless you are insanely bored. The only reason I watched it was because it was the Sunday night movie, which is the traditional way for me to relax on a Sunday night. I couldn't relax during this because I kept checking the time to see how much was left to go.


  1. This was without a doubt, one of the worst films I had ever seen. After being disappointed by the Farrelly Brothers a few times starting with Shallow Hal. I decided to to leave them behind because not only was the film not funny at all. It felt like a fucking chore to watch it from one bad gag to another and then have Danny McBride pop up to act like an asshole. If I was to rate it from a 1-10 scale. I give it a 0. That's how bad it is for me.

    The worst part of the film for me was that it's called The Heartbreak Kid and they don't even get the actual Heartbreak Kid, the Icon, the Showstopper, Mr. Wrestlemania himself in Shawn Michaels to appear in the film. Instead, some other guy with the same name appears in it and it's not the actual HBK. Farrelly Brothers can suck it!


You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
