John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
Eddie is forty, owns a sporting-goods store, and is still single. After watching his ex-fiancée walk down the aisle, he meets Lila, an environmental researcher, who seems too good to be true. Pressured by his father and best friend, Eddie pops the question and marries Lila after only 6 weeks. However, as he almost instantly discovers, his new bride is a nightmare with more baggage than he can handle. She's immature, foolish, a monster in bed, owes a tremendous amount of money to various sources, and as it turns out, is only a volunteer and doesn't actually have a job. While on their honeymoon in Cabo, Eddie meets Miranda, a down-to-earth lacrosse coach who is visiting with her family. Sparks fly, and Eddie falls for her. Now comes the tricky part of breaking off his marriage to crazy Lila, all while keeping the truth from Miranda about why he's in Cabo in the first place... Written by

So, what's new Eddie? Anything exciting?
Ah, yeah, we just got those new Nike Sasquatch drivers in the store, so that's been kind of cool.

After the completion of the end credits, a scene showing Eddie Cantrow's (Ben Stiller) bunkmate at camp saying good night and then snorting cocaine (in reference to the deviated septum scene in the film). See more »
In 1994,the Farrelly brothers became famous with the brilliant comedy Dumb and Dumber,a film without sophisticated or intellectual humor(really,it was a vulgar humor) but with lots of laughs and the Farrelly bros,appeared as two very promising talents in the comedy genre.Then,they continued with other three excellent comedies which are Kingpin,There's Something About Mary(their best work to date) and Me,Myself and Irene.But,after the last mentioned film,the Farrelly bros. started with a row of mediocre comedies which were very far away from their first four films.After the tedious romantic comedy Fever Pitch,I thought the Farrelly bros. were going to redeem themselves with their new film.But it was not like that.The Heartbreak Kid is a tedious,unfunny ''comedy'' and the worst movie in the career of these two directors.The Heartbreak Kid is one of that films which is always trying to make us laugh.But it fatally fails on that intention.On the first half,I frequently looked to my watch.But it gets worse on the second half and,on that moment,I was all the way through looking to it.One of the few good elements on this crappy film is Malin Akerman's performance.Akerman is great on her role and she gave to this film the four points I put to it.The Heartbreak Kid is a tedious film and an enormous waste of 116 minutes.I hope the Farrelly bros. will back to their best on their next movie to make us forget of this pathetic moment of their careers.
