is a dark romantic comedy that shows you should know your potential
spouse before marrying her, or it's a honeymoon made in Hell.
Only after the wedding did Eddie (played
by Ben Stiller) realize his wife is a total wacko -- which I
found some of the funniest parts of the movie.
I think this film does its job, which is
to make the audience laugh from the sickest, raunchiest things.
If you can handle this kind of humor and
liked Something About Mary, you shouldn't be too disappointed.
Frat boy humor is at an all-time high as
the Farrelly brothers completely bastardize Elaine May's 1972
Good taste is thrown out the window, so
Ben Stiller may wallow in revolting wit and tasteless jokes.
Still his father Jerry fares well as his
foul-mouthed . . . well . . . father.
This has the three Bs you expect from the
Farrellys -- bad taste, Ben Stiller, and bodily fluids.
This Farrelly brothers' remake of Elaine May's
1972 comedy classic has some funny spots, and in some ways is
a little better than the original Heartbreak Kid, but
in other ways the movie becomes grossed-out with physical humor
that, in my view, is offensive, especially the donkey show scene
and the poisonous jellyfish scenes at the beach.
