Episode 72 – THE HEARTBREAK KID (1972)

Join us this week as we discuss the 1972 film The Heartbreak Kid. This isn’t your average Farrelly Brothers’ remake, but the original helmed by comedian/actor/director/writer Elaine May. The film starring Charles Grodin, (pre-grumpy Dad phase), Cybill Shepherd and Jeannie Berlin, follows a honeymoon doomed with bad decisions and packed with so much squirm-inducing, terrible behaviour, it’s a wonder if this could be inspiration for all the anti-hero leading characters of more contemporary comedies. While being both a challenging and hilarious film, we do learn that Charles Grodin may also not like being a husband, as well as those big dogs.

We also welcome special guest Rob LaRonde, from the Rewatchability podcast.
