‘Heartbreak’ for Bateman and Poehler

ON

I am a bit torn on this one as The Hollywood Reporter lets us know that Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman and Amy Poehler have signed on to star in The Heartbreak Kid for DreamWorks Pictures.

The film sounds a bit hokey and like an early year release in which a man (Bateman) is convinced that he has finally met the right girl and marries too quickly. While on his honeymoon and in the process of discovering that his new bride (Poehler) is a nightmare, he meets the girl of his dreams.

Now the only redeeming aspect of this feature is that James Bobin is aboard to direct, and if you are unfamiliar with Bobin he is one of the contributing writers to ‘Da Ali G Show,’ which is quite possibly one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. If you are unfamiliar just check out a clip at the bottom of my DVD review here and if you have the cash purchase a copy for yourself, you won’t regret.
