The Heartbreak Kid Reviews

Page 1 of 8
Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

Neither as daringly vulgar as the Farrellys' most well-known work nor as melancholy and jaded as its source material, Heartbreak ends up in a dissatisfying middle ground.

Like much of the Farrellys' work, there's no soul to what might very well be a Something About Mary sequel.

Palo Alto Weekly

Although the edgy humor provides plenty of side-splitting moments, Heartbreak ultimately cracks beneath a lackluster storyline.

A squirmy miscalculation of tone.

The Heartbreak Kid, while not without its share of tiny, ephemeral pleasures, is a surprisingly flat and unamusing comedy.

[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.

Monaghan's comic timing saves this go-nowhere affair from 100 percent lousiness, and I couldn't really tell you why; she doesn't earn any laughs, exactly; there are none, but she's charming and she makes tiny bits of a stuporous flop slightly less grim.

The dumbing down of the central joke just heightens its nastiness

The Heartbreak Kid is a shabby, sleazy train wreck ... and anyone who backed it ... before its being made or rewards it with money or acclaim upon its release should feel, if they can feel at all, something like shame.

The Farrelly brothers blow all the good will accumulated in the first half of the movie by taking the humor deeper and deeper into Tedious Cad Land, where Stiller's self-obsessed, nattering guyishness turns pathological and strange.

Farrelly brothers films are looking better and better, but aren't nearly as funny as their grungy early films that hit with the stealth and vigor of guerrilla commandos.

It just falls flat, flat, flat.

An unwatchable mess like this is exactly what you ought to expect from anybody with the unmitigated gall to overhaul Neil Simon.

'Please be shocked into fits of laughter by our impish rudeness!' the Farrellys seem to say. 'Please forget the other, better R-rated comedies you've seen this year!'

The Heartbreak Kid represents less a return to form than a worn regurgitation of past success.

The Heartbreak Kid ... is a disaster, an unmitigated humorless horror that never once plays as raunchy or as outrageous as it thinks it is.

OK, just so long as you don't expect the old Farrelly magic.

There's just not enough of what we've come to expect from the Farrellys: gut-busting laughs, jaw-dropping gross-outs and heart-tugging sincerity.
