''The Heartbreak Kid'' is a 2007 romantic comedy starring Ben Stiller and Malin Akerman. It is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name. Nothing to do with [[Wrestling/ShawnMichaels Shawn "The Heartbreak Kid" Michaels]].

----
!This film has examples of:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Lila becomes this to Eddie.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Lila, who doesn't reveal her myriad of annoying habits, mood swings, and oddities until ''after'' the wedding.
* BrattyHalfPint: The twins who accuse Eddie of being gay and later start a rumor that his wife was killed by an ice-pick murderer.
* TheBrute: Martin.
* CloudCuckoolander: Lila.
* CountryMatters: Lila calls Eddie this when he tries to treat her sunburn.
* CringeComedy
* DirtyOldMan: Eddie's father, played by Jerry Stiller. He has an obsession with "crushing pussy" and even suggests that he and Eddie go to Vegas together to tag-team women.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale
* DownerEnding [=/=]HereWeGoAgain
* {{Fanservice}}: Lila naked.
* GagBoobs: The woman with Eddie's father in Vegas has these.
* HeroAntagonist: Martin, Miranda's cousin. He's a belligerent and short-tempered JerkAss, but has more moral fiber than Eddie.
* HenpeckedHusband: Mac.
* HopeSpot: When Miranda looks out the window to watch Eddie leave near the end of the film. Naturally, he screws it up again.
** Tito gives Eddie a small one, making him think Miranda still wants him [Eddie], before saying, [[CatchPhrase "Screw off, I'm joking!"]]
* HumiliationConga: The man-o-war scene near the end.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Martin. He's pretty unlikable personality-wise, but he has Miranda's best interests in mind.
* KarmaHoudini: Both Lila and Eddie fall under this category.
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Cousin]]: Martin, although it's somewhat justified.
* PapaWolf: Eddie's father when Martin attacks him with a baseball bat.
* [[PsychopathicManChild Psychopathic Woman Child]]: Lila. Among other things, she refuses to wear sunblock in ''Mexico'' and then accuses Eddie of "siding with the ozone" when she gets a horrific sunburn.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The hobo who Eddie ''thought'' was deaf-mute gives him one when he [Eddie] won't stop obsessing over Miranda.
* RedAndWhiteComedyPoster
* RealLifeRelative: Jerry Stiller and Creator/BenStiller.
* RunningGag: The increasingly annoying mariachi band that always shows up at the worst times.
* StalkerWithACrush: Eddie is this to Miranda near the end.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Eddie is pretty level-headed at first, but goes into full-on psycho stalker mode by the end of the film.
** Not to mention that he spends his honeymoon trying to cheat on his new bride. Yeah, she's a complete psycho, but still...
