Movie of the Week: The Heartbreak Kid

Actually not as bad as the reviews say.

Ben Stiller + The Farrelly Brothers = raunchy humor.

You’re going to laugh and cringe a lot. Probably the latter more then the former.

It went on too long and there’s this weird part of the movie where you no longer feel sorry for Ben Stiller because what he’s doing is kind of despicable.

But you’ll still laugh.

One thing I always appreciate about Farrelly brothers movies is the “No joke left behind” style of script writing. Things that feel like random statements come back later in the movie.

Stay for the credits. There are a couple of extra scenes.
