The Heartbreak Kid 

Reviewer's grade: C

 

Eddie (Ben Stiller) is a lonely sporting goods store owner with commitment issues and bad luck with the fairer sex. Forty and wondering if he'll ever get married, Eddie takes the plunge with Lila (Malin Akerman), a sweet young thing with a deviated septum and David Bowie underpants, and heads to Cabo for the honeymoon. What could go wrong? Everything, of course.

 

The Farrelly brothers return to "There's Something About Mary" territory with a more or less predictable romantic comedy that provides an excuse for a series of gross-outs the siblings might have thought up in fifth grade while they were collecting their own boogers and smelling each others' farts. If you're into that sort of thing, go see it. But if you saw any of the Farrellys' other movies, don't bother; same crap, different day. R
