The Heartbreak Kid (2007)

1/2 Star (out of 4)

May Day

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Elaine May directed the 1972 original with uncanny skill and brilliance and somehow balanced its difficult situation: a schmuck falls in love with another woman while on his honeymoon. For their new remake directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly and star Ben Stiller desperately re-work the character to make him more "likeable," and henceforth, unexpectedly underline the hateful, repugnant nature of the idea. Both the Farrellys and Stiller seem to have run their course; the film is flabby and the jokes are tired, and all that's left is easy potshots at the usual targets. Blond Malin Akerman plays the dumped wife, although she's far less annoying than the loser husband, while plucky Michelle Monaghan is wasted as the romantic newcomer.
