S02E02: The Heartbreak Kid

Travis and Matt take on Elaine May’s second film, the anti-romantic comedy The Heartbreak Kid. We talk about the film’s emphasis on character and how the movie upends conventions that had barely been invented yet. We also compare it to May’s former partner’s best-known movie and the atrocity that is the Farrelly brothers’ remake.
