1.0 out of 5 stars One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, snore March 23 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This is a Ben Stiller movie with a difference! This time, he's not an unlikeable, whiny, obnoxious, accident-prone loser, but an unlikeable, whiny, obnoxious loser, with an accident-prone wife. BIG difference!

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Boy has commitment issues
2. Boy meets girl during purse-snatching incident (her purse, not his)
3. Boy listens to advice from hen-pecked best friend and typecast real-life dad (truth being stranger than fiction, blood being thicker than getting than another actor)
4. Boy marries girl
5. Girl has issues bigger than boy's issues (Impossible, but true)
6. Boy meets girl while on Mexican honeymoon
7. Usual Stiller shenanigans follow
8. Boy still has commitment issues

Recommended for fans of foul-mouthed slapstick, unfunny situations and the Stiller father-son duo, but not for anybody else. One extra point given for the soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious movie Jan. 14 2014
By Alley_P
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is so funny, I looked for it everywhere and was happy to find it here on amazon. The only thing that is kind of annoying is why is it shown in a Blue Ray case if it's a DVD version? I thought I was getting a Blue Ray copy and yes I did see after in format that it says DVD but it's still a little misleading. Oh well, great movie either way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really liked this movie Dec 27 2011
Not sure why this movie has been given such a bad rap. My wife and I rarely watch any movie more than once but we've seen this particular comedy at least three times now and we're still laughing. I'm not a fan of every Ben Stiller comedy made but this one, for some reason, still kills in my opinion. If you liked Zoolander you'll love this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Il ne faut jamais ce fier aux apparences... Jan. 15 2008
En amour comme dans toute chose allez trop vite en affaire peut vous couter fort cher... Et bien ce film est basé sur ce principe plutôt simple de la vie... un homme après 6 semaines de fréquentations épouse une femme qu'il a rencontré par le fruit du hasard... et dire qu'il aurait fait un choix plutôt impulsif et pas très éclairé est vraiment peu...

Imaginez une femme qui n'a pas de travail mais est bénévole, n'a pas un sous, n'a que des dettes, a des manies plus que folle, ronfle plus que la plupart de vos amis réunis ensemble... et vous serez à peu prêt presque proche du portrait de cette charmante jeune femme... après si on se demande si le gars est un salaud ou pas de vouloir vouloir aller regarder ailleurs là c'est plus mon domaine...

Par contre je le comprends de vouloir s'évader un peu, il ne fait rien de mal, il n'embrasse pas l'autre femme et ne fais rien de déplacer si ce n'est la courtiser... mais il veut de toute façon quitter l'autre femme... qui franchement dans une telle situation ne ferait pas comme lui ?

Ok a bien regarder le film on se rend compte que cet homme a sa part de tort (comme tout couple, il y a 2 personnes...) mais est-ce vraiment un salaud si on s'arrête qu'à la première histoire ? Par contre si vous allez plus loin la question semble ne pu pouvoir se poser tellement la réponse vient d'elle même... à vous d'aller en juger par vous même je vous dirais...

5.0 out of 5 stars What's up with these reviews? Funniest movie I saw in 2007 Dec 30 2007
By B. Mahaney - Published on Amazon.com
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 Jan. 7 2008
By zooni - Published on Amazon.com
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
By Joshua Owen - Published on Amazon.com
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. Jan. 2 2008
By L. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Farrellys Flail on a Flummoxing Flick About a Schlub Who Turns Into a Jerk Oct. 17 2007
By Ed Uyeshima - Published on Amazon.com
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. Turning forty and watching his last girlfriend of five years get married from the desperate kiddie table, he decides to throw caution to the wind when he meets Lila, a seemingly sweet blonde beauty, in a meet-cute situation involving a mugger. They get married after only six weeks of dating, but the marriage starts to unravel on the car trip down to their honeymoon destination, Los Cabos. One bad revelation after revelation comes out, and she evolves into a nightmarish freak with a free-flowing deviated septum. In a twist of fate, she suffers from severe sunburn and is stuck in the hotel room recovering. Enter Miranda, a good-humored girl-next-door from Mississippi in Los Cabos with her extended family. Naturally, Eddie and Miranda hit it off, and you can guess the rest.

Ben Stiller plays Eddie in familiar manic mode, though his character degenerates through the course of the story from likeable schlub to obsessive jerk. Some of the turns he takes are hilarious, like the out-of-kilter segment where he illegally crosses the border back from Mexico, but for the most part, he just feels like a sketch of a person. Malin Akerman deserves a medal for subjecting herself to a series of humiliations that turn her into an imbecilic harridan, while Michelle Monaghan provides a unique version of the "dream girl" as Miranda. It was a creative move to have a blonde bombshell like Akerman play the one Eddie tries to jettison, but the problem is that both she and Monaghan come across more as victims of their characters' stupidity than Eddie's machinations. By the end of this overlong movie, I became indifferent to anyone's fate as the story spits and sputters in the final stretch. As the final credits roll, there are two random scenes included that extend on the characters, but they aren't worth the wait.
