A miserable pathetic mean spirited effort on the Farrelly brothers...

The dumbing down of the central joke just heightens its nastiness

...largely gross, mean-spirited, frustrating, and ugly.

If The Heartbreak Kid doesn't go totally wrong, its big problem is that doesn't really go anywhere. It just sort of lies there, like dumb Lila on the beach, waiting to turn gold.

[The] 2007 remake delivers a lot of laughs despite the fact we're clearly supposed to root for and feel sorry for the cad ... no matter how squirmy or awful his actions.

Washington City Paper

Bobby and Peter Farrelly don't bring any fresh insight or relevance to their remake of The Heartbreak Kid. Mainly, they've taken a decent comedy and turned it into a...decent comedy.

If you watch this film, don't expect much and you may not be too disappointed. Now there's a ringing endorsement for ya!

The original's premise has been stripped of anything to do with upward mobility, and except for one shot involving a Prince Albert, the Farrellys' signature shock humor is largely absent.

It's disappointing to see a comic talent like Ben Stiller slum it in these studio-grade romantic comedies.

It's like watching the younger brother of There's Something About Mary: it's brash and talks too loud, it's a bit snotty and it so wants to be as cool as its older sibling.

Beyond its contagious, wacky humour, the film has a very sweet heart

The elements with which the Farrellys transcend mere gross-out -- pacing, inspired and quirky performances, good writing with an underlying heart -- are missing here, which exposes the underlying creepiness at the heart of the film.

The cast is pitch perfect, with Stiller adding another notable character to his resumé.

Most jokes land with a thud--particularly the gross-out gags, which nearly ten years after Mary now just feel played out.

The "illegal alien" gag is a lazy joke, contingent on ridiculing otherness in the most insipid ways. Bitches, Mexicans, they all be crazy.

This sporadically funny Farrellys farce is worth watching (mostly) for Stiller (Ben) and the game Akerman (Malin) in the leads.

Face it: If you've seen one deviated septum gag, you've seen them all.

Compared to past Farrelly movies, I found the jokes raunchy and cruel rather than funny.
