"The Heartbreak Kid"

(Jan. 22 & 31) — “An excruciatingly hilarious masterpiece of modern misanthropy, Elaine May’s second directorial outing stars Charles Grodin as a [Jewish] newlywed who, not five days into his honeymoon, mercilessly dumps his bride (played, with an Oscar-nominated mixture of hapless pathos and a double order of egg salad, by May’s daughter, Jeannie Berlin) in order to pursue Cybill Shepherd’s teenage Minnesota WASP princess. An anatomy of internalized rage, curdled misogyny, and bottomless self-deception." – Chuck Stephens, Film Comment
