Critic Reviews for The Heartbreak Kid

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (2)

  • [May] captures the implausibly boundless sense of wonder, possibility, and entitlement of a time when even a self-proclaimed schmuck like Len Cantrow, endowed with little but the gift of gab, attempted daring feats of self-liberation.

    February 1, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Elaine May's deft direction catches all the possibilities of young romance and its tribulations in light strokes and cleverly accents characterization of the various principals.

    February 3, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Wittily directed by May, and neatly scripted by Neil Simon.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Elaine May's The Heartbreak Kid was directed with a sure feeling for how comedy can edge over into satire and then tragedy.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Just as the film grows more and more distressing, it also manages to squeeze uncommon humor from outrageous situations.

    August 30, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Neil Simon's screenplay, from a Bruce Jay Friedman story, must be given credit along with May's direction and the film's priceless performances.
