The Heartbreak Kid

Anyone else seen this? Usually really like films with Ben Stiller in, but this just seemed rushed and lacking ideas.

I quite enjoyed it actually. I like Ben Stiller, and I think he was great as usual, but he's certaintly seems to be getting on a bit, Thought the movie was very funny, and had a few good laughs throughout,it was probably a little too long, but I didnt feel that uncomfortable watching it till the end.

P.S Stay and watch the entire end credits, as there are 2 more short scenes to watch. You will find out what happens with Lila,and we learn alot about that kid at camp Eddie mentions.

It's utterly dreadful, particularly compared to other Farrelly Brother films. It just doesn't flow, Stiller is dull, Stiller's Dad is even worse and the jokes are tired and badly thought out.

Plus, it's over 2 hours long. Avoid it like the plague.

I watched this at the weekend but the fire alarm went off about 80% through the movie. I didn't want to wait around as the film was pretty poor but I have to admit that it's now bugging me what happened. Therefore can some kind soul tell me in a line what happens at the end?

Saw this last night. Jerry Stiller was very funny. But the rest was a bit crap.

Watched this tonight and felt it was lacking something and the plot was all over the place.

What was the last 2 scenes, as i forgot to stay?

The BBFC apparently cut this to remove a shot of an erect donkey schlong close to a woman Typing that was funnier than the film.

They didn't remove it, it just has a black box covering it up. I remember seeing it at the cinema and wondering if the black box was sposed to be there as it looked really out of place.

I reckon that donkey scene and the sex scene was the funniest thing in the film
