News & Interviews for The Heartbreak Kid
Critic Reviews for The Heartbreak Kid
[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.
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.
Elaine May's The Heartbreak Kid was directed with a sure feeling for how comedy can edge over into satire and then tragedy.
A first-class American comedy, as startling in its way as was The Graduate.
Grodin cria um personagem extremamente egoísta que, ainda assim, consegue despertar nossa pena, ao passo que Shepherd, lindíssima, surge mais complexa do que poderíamos imaginar. Mas é Berlin quem rouba o filme com sua Lila irritante e comovente.
Audience Reviews for The Heartbreak Kid
Tragicomic look at the trials and tribulations of love for young newlyweds. Poignancy and bitterness in constant balance.
I understand the story is realistic and it's supposed to be that real life kind of humor, but I just couldn't get into the movie. I found it boring and the actors pretty annoying too. Not a great movie at all.
the remake might be good but it will have to be good in a totally different way than this dark, subtle comedy about a guy lusting for the unobtained and totally at a loss about who he is; Grodin shows that he was a great actor
