Adding another "catch up" title to their Blu-ray catalog, DreamWorks has announced a mid-December release for the Ben Stiller comedy 'The Heartbreak Kid.'

Originally released on HD DVD in late 2007, this remake of the 1972 cult favorite (starring Charles Grodin in the Stiller role) barely earned $35 million at the domestic box office. DreamWorks will give the Farrelly Brothers-directed farce another shot when it hits Blu-ray on December 16.

Extras are plentiful and match the HD DVD, including an audio commentary with the Farrellys, four featurettes ("The Farrelly Brothers in: The French Tradition," "Ben & Jerry," "Heartbreak Halloween," "The Egg Toss"), deleted scenes, a gag reel and the film's original theatrical trailer.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio, plus standard Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and subtitle options in English, French and Spanish.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
