"The Heartbreak Kid"
Valentine's Heartbreakers! week begins at Trailer from Hell with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing "The Heartbreak Kid," starring Charles Grodin and Cybill Shepherd.

Charles Grodin was passed over for the lead in The Graduate, but gets to play a similar role here as Peter Pan syndrome sufferer Lenny Kantrow, who falls for shiksa goddess Cybill Shepherd days after marrying his annoying wife Jeannie Berlin. Both films share similiar endings as well, but Elaine May's comic take is darker and edgier. As Shepherd's banker dad Eddie Albert channels Edgar Kennedy's slow burn into an Oscar nomination. Remade to little avail in 2007. The original film can be seen online here.
