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

This was possibly the most uncomfortable movie I have ever seen
27 December 2007 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

And that's incredibly sad after seeing Pink Flamingo's last year, I mean The Heartbreak Kid was just one of the most stupid films I have seen. There was absolutely nothing funny about this movie and I don't understand it's rating. The Farally brothers have lost their gift, because I have no idea what they were smoking when they came up with this film and thought it would be a good idea. Ben Stiller also, I mean, his character was absolutely the biggest jerk I have ever seen on film and was in no way likable. I think that was the main problem I was having with this movie was due to the fact that I think Ben Stiller's character was supposed to be likable, but there was no saving him from the way this script was written, because he is in no way justifiable. The Heartbreak Kid was definitely the worst film of 2007.

Eddie is starting to feel a bit alone in the world filled with love sick couples. But that all changes when he meets a beautiful girl, Lila, and after 6 weeks of dating her, she needs to go to a different country for a job, but Eddie is feeling so good that with the pressure from his dad and friend, he marries her. They go on their honeymoon and Eddie finds out that Lila have some disturbing traits to her personality. But his vacation quickly changes when he meets Miranda who is on a family reunion, and he falls in love with her. But of course, since he's still "technically" married, it gets hard to tell Miranda.

The Heartbreak Kid has some of the most uncomfortable nudity I've ever seen. I have no problem with nudity in films depending on the context, but this script was so awful, like how Lila loved being a freak in bed. OK, I get it after the first scene, but they continue this weird joke for a few more scenes, not to mention her jellyfish scene with Ben was beyond gross. This was just an unnecessary film in every aspect, the script needs at least some major work because the characters are awful and so is the story. Please stay away from this junk, it's not worth your time.

1/10
