Very good movie!!!
Most of Stiller's movies are funny...this one is just raunchy. The f___ word was used way too much,and his dad (who is his dad in real life) was supposed to be funny with his comments, but just came off as a disgusting dirty old man. Just too gross for me.
We love Ben Stiller so we thought we'd really enjoy The Heartbreak Kid. This movie could have been very funny if it hadn't been so crude, this borders on an x-rated film. Much of the vulgarity could have been left out. To see Jerry Stiller use the language he does in the movie is unbelievable and distracting and really takes away from the small part he has.
Extremely vulgar! Lots of unnecessary female nudity and foul language. Would have been a very funny movie if they had toned it down. Very dissappointing for a Ben Stiller movie.
A terrible remake of the 1972 movie version. I didn't see the remake, but watching this new version of "the Heartbreak Kid," didn't help. Bobby and Peter Farrelly who directed this movie, had turn this remake into one big toliet humor of the movie. they sometimes can direct a funny movie. Not here! this movie will drive anyone out of the theatre.this movie was made with reckless abandment. Ben Stiller who can either be funny or annoying, choose to be annoying. I was turned off by his character. His new bride played by Malin Akeman did help much as Stiller's bride. what we have here are two people who are trying to out-annoy each other and the audience. Stiller's continous whinning didn't help me or this film. The movie's only bright moment comes from the performance of Michelle Monagham. she plays a likeable character who I found to be a complete joy. Not only she is the best person in the movie, but she is the only thing that I like to come out of this horrible movie. Monahham is like the sum coming though the clouds after a thunder storm. Other than that I see the remake of "The Heartbreak Kid" as a heartbreak to the audience.
