First half so-so, second half quite funny.
The Heartbreak Kid isn't right up there in the list of great comediesstarring Ben Stiller. It's a bit further down, nestled in amongst thelikes of Along Came Polly and Envy.
That's not to say it isn't a good film. As far as romcoms go, it'salright. I think it's fair to say the first half trudges along quiteslowly but stick with it while the main characters are introduced andthe plot is founded because the second half is nicely paced with somevery funny moments as things start to conclude. The cliffhanger endingis surprisingly delightful and watch for a final funny scene aroundhalfway through the end credits.
