Heavy-handed remake of the 1972 original replaces selfish adults with immature brats...

Sporting goods store owner (Ben Stiller, incredulous as ever) from SanFrancisco has a whirlwind courtship and marriage to a leggy blondewhich culminates in disaster once they honeymoon down Mexico way; shereveals a seamy past, an uncertain financial future, and a deviatedseptum while he falls for a dryly humorous brunette on vacation withher relatives (they meet when she drops her camera over the balcony).Bruce Jay Friedman's original story (and Neil Simon's 1972 adaptation)retooled for the "There's Something About Mary" generation. What wasoriginally played for ethnic laughs (Jews vs. Gentiles) has beensubstituted with what can only be described as nasal-passage humor.Five screenwriters worked on this bombastic version, including thedirectors Bobby and Peter Farrelly, but the jokes are nasty and uglythroughout. Elaine May's version was unsympathetic and cruel, but atleast had credible characters. Stiller believes his new lady-friend andher family are aware he has a wife, unaware they think he's a grievingwidower and that his spouse was viciously murdered! The scenario, ladenwith misunderstandings and dim slapstick worthy of a "Three's Company"rerun, is so wrongheaded that even the gags which should work tend tofail. The glossy locale turns out to be a presumptuous obstacle in theproceedings (it overwhelms the slim little plot), while the romanticentanglements are not unraveled with any smarts. What a missedopportunity! This tale is ripe for satiric barbs, but the writing teamaims instead for low-brow shenanigans made to appeal to an audience ofthe lowest common denominator. * from ****
