The Heartbreak Kid

What would happen if you combined Neil Simon and The Farrelly Brothers? The makers of There's Something About Mary try remaking a 1972 Neil Simon comedy with decidedly mixed results. Ben Stiller plays a loveless 40-year-old who marries an attractive gal (Malin Ackerman, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle) on a whim. While on their honeymoon in Mexico, our boy discovers his wife is nuts and manages to fall in love with an even more attractive gal (Michelle Monaghan, Mission: Impossible III). There are a few stabs at the Farrelly's tradmark rude humor, but most of it is awfully uncomfortable and unsympathetic. 116 minutes R.
