The Heartbreak Kid Review


Long before Meet the Parents, there was The Heartbreak Kid. Genuinely funny, Kid features Charles Grodin as a hapless and sappy ex-G.I. who decides to dump his new wife -- on his honeymoon in Florida -- after falling for a young blonde played with perfect coyness by Shepherd.
