Lauren shows Greg 2007’s The Heartbreak Kid, the awkward romantic comedy that takes its jokes just a little too far. Our hosts discuss where they think this bait and switch movie lost its audiences with its crude sense of humor, including unexpected donkey shows, graphic and confusing sex scenes. Also why you shouldn’t ask someone for a second chance at love by breaking into their bedroom at night while looking like a hobo. Music by bensound.com
