The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

TheHeart­breakKid is a re­make of a dark 1972 com­edy penned by Neil Simon. It fol­lows long-time bach­e­lor Ed­die Cantrow (Ben Stiller) who gets caught up in a whirl­wind, no-sex-‘tilwe’re-mar­ried ro­mance with stun­ning blonde Lila (Malin Akerman), who is sev­eral years his ju­nior. The pair get hitched and the trou­ble starts on their hon­ey­moon. Lila re­veals a se­ries of freaky quirks, mak­ing Ed­die doubt the mar­riage. When he meets the down-toearth and charm­ing Mi­randa (Michelle Mon­aghan) at the same re­sort, an in­no­cent courtship en­sues leav­ing Ed­die to jug­gle a se­ries of lies and mis­un­der­stand­ings. From the Far­relly brothers, Peter and Bobby, there’s also plenty of gross-out hu­mour. ★★★
