On the third day of his honeymoon, Eddie Cantrow (Ben Stiller) believes he’s finally found true love. Unfortunately, it’s not with his new bride.
After years of bachelorhood and ample pressure from his father (Jerry Stiller) and best friend Mac (Rob Corddry), Eddie starts to wonder if he is being too picky about the women he meets. So when a chance encounter with an alluring blonde named Lila (Malin Akerman) leads to a sweet romance, Eddie impulsively proposes. But right after the wedding, as the newlyweds get to know each other on the drive down the California coast, Eddie begins to realize he’s made a terrible mistake. Soon after reaching their exotic Mexican hideaway, he falls for the down-to-earth Miranda (Michelle Monaghan), who has no clue he’s on his honeymoon. Now Eddie has to find a way to extricate himself from his days-old marriage without losing the girl of his dreams.
“The Heartbreak Kid” is an offbeat romantic comedy, liberally seasoned with the patented over-the-top humor of directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly (“There’s Something About Mary”). Raucous and side-splitting, THE HEARTBREAK KID piles outlandish antics on top of wickedly twisted sight gags to create an outrageous comedy of errors.
The film stars Ben Stiller, Michelle Monaghan, Malin Akerman, Jerry Stiller, Rob Corddry, Carlos Mencia, Scott Wilson and Danny McBride.
