Storyline

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 Lex

Horrible and a waste of time
18 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In general, people review a film out of will because they either loved it, or hated it. I am sorry to say but this review was written because I hated "The Heartbreak Kid". I went to see this film after weeks of anticipation. I am a huge Ben Stiller fan – as well as a fan of the Farrelly Brothers, so I thought, "this film is going to be gooood". No, no, no. Don't even consider seeing this film. Sure, you may get a few laughs out of it- (the beginning is averagely funny) but those few laughs will be strongly outweighed later in the film and you will just be filled with a feeling of discontent. I must say "The Heartbreak kid" is the worst film I have seen in a long, long time. It is definitely the worst Stiller film of all time. And yes I even saw "Night At The Museum"- Night As The Museum is "The Godfather" in comparison to this film. I can't even begin to explain how much a waste of your life seeing this film will be. Please do something else for 2 hours instead of seeing this film - unless you like horrible characters, plots, very-very-try-hard humour, then go ahead and waste your time.
