Heartbreak Kid, The

Wry, often tasteless farce about a commitment-shy bachelor (Ben Stiller) who, under pressure from his father (Jerry Stiller) and his best friend (Rob Corddry), finally takes the plunge, only to discover on his honeymoon in Mexico that his new wife (Malin Akerman) is a vulgar, whiny shrew, after which he promptly falls in love with another woman (Michelle Monaghan) who's staying at the same resort. Peter and Bobby Farrelly's remake of Elaine May's 1972 marital comedy (scripted by Neil Simon) has some genuinely funny moments, but these are more than overshadowed by scenes of outrageous coarseness. Graphic sexual activity, full-frontal and upper female nudity, grossly scatological humor, implied bestiality, drug use, comic adultery theme, pervasive rough and crude language, and occasional use of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
