Grodin is a magnificent worm in the movie, filled with the kind of tightly restrained physicality and choked, nervous laughter that (like his posing with a pipe) suggests his character is caught up in how others view him, an anxiety over identity that sends him from Lila into the arms of a shiksa cliché.

If I had to apply, or in this case, make up, a narrative genre to the film, I’d label it a comedy of proportion. Each element, be it a character or a scene, fits perfectly—but not equally—within the whole. Such a sensibility is part of what accounts for May’s distinct brand of New York Jewish humor, a temperament that balances equitably divided self-loathing with genuine affection for all its targets.

A near-peerless comedy of humiliation and dissimulation, The Heartbreak Kid finds Charles Grodin’s craven Lenny Cantrow ditching his bride of less than a week, Lila (Jeannie Berlin), for shiksa coed Kelly (Cybill Shepherd) while the new spouses are honeymooning in Miami Beach. Berlin gives a flawless performance: Lila is vulgar, childish, and maddening, but never pathetic; she’s always in possession of some small kernel of self-respect, no matter how mortifying her situation may be.
