The Heartbreak Kid Synopsis


Single and indecisive, Eddie (Ben Stiller) begins dating the incredibly sexy and seemingly fabulous Lila. Upon the urging of his father and best friend, Eddie proposes to her after only a week, fearing this may be his last chance at love, marriage, and happiness. However, while on their honeymoon in sunny Mexico, Lila reveals her true beyond-awful nature and Eddie meets Miranda, the woman he realizes to be his actual soul mate. Eddie must keep his new, increasingly horrid wife at bay as he attempts to woo the girl of his dreams.



Once a the filmmaking standard in raunch, disgust, and double-dildo humor, the Farrelly brothers have slipped into a coma in recent years. They’ve gone soft. Their last movie was about retarded people… but it was endorsed by the Special Olympics. They’ve lost their touch for offense. Either they’ve lost it, or simply given it up willingly. Either way, in the process they’ve become completely irrelevant.

This fall Ben Stiller and the Farrelly Brothers are getting back together in an attempt to re-create the magic that made Something About Mary such a cultural touchstone with a remake of the 1972 Elaine May movie The Heartbreak Kid. While Ben Stiller may not exactly be genius, he’s at least an upgrade from the original movie’s star, Charles Grodin.

The plot of the film sounds like fertile territory for a Farrelly return to the despicable, low brow, worn out crap that made them famous in the first place. It also presents plenty of opportunities for Ben Stiller to get frustrated and angry. He may even accidentally set something on fire, or perhaps he’ll battle a ferret, a small fluffy dog, or even a cat.
