Heartbreak Kid, The (2007): Remake by Farrelly Brothers, Starring Ben Stiller, is a Flop

The Heartbreak Kid grossed a weak $14 million, ending up no. 2 behind Disneys The Game Plan, which dropped only 29% to $16.3 million.

The Ben Stiller vehicle directed by the Farrelly Brothers, the first under DreamWorks/Paramount, averaged $13,756 at 3,329 theaters.

It was one of Stiller’s lowest openings of recent years, behind comparable pictures like Along Came Polly, Starsky and Hutch and Zoolander.

Its slightly ahead, however, of the Farrelly Brothers last two films: Fever Pitch and Stuck on You.

Disney’s The Rock starrer has now cumulated $42.8 million and with the Columbus Day holiday tomorrow, looks well positioned to extend its lead.
