There’s Something About Mary (1998)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Directors: The Farrelly Brothers
Starring: Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, Chris Elliot, Sarah Silverman.
Ted (Stiller) gets a second chance to meet up with Mary (Diaz), his dream girl from high school. It is a surprising event since this first date back then ended in disaster.
This is a great comedy from the late 1990’s, among the very best work from the Farrelly brothers. I think this movie speaks to many who blew the first date with someone awesome, but somehow get a second chance. There are some really gross/disturbing jokes inside, but it adds some bite to a comedy that would otherwise be average.
The work of Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller makes this comedy better than it probably should be. There isn’t a lot of depth to it, but certainly wouldn’t ruin your night to watch it. (Unless you are squeamish about sexual situations and fluids )
I think everyone should watch this film once. Among the better comedies of the 1990s.
