Product Description

Farrelly brothers comedy featuring romantic obsession and unusual hair styling products! In 1985, high school senior Ted Stroehmann (Ben Stiller) gets a date with gorgeous classmate Mary Jenson (Cameron Diaz) after rescuing her mentally handicapped brother, Warren, from a bully. The date is ruined when Ted catches his penis in his fly zip and has to be rushed to hospital. Thirteen years on, Ted is still obsessed with Mary, and hires private detective Pat Healy (Matt Dillon) to find her. Healy tracks Mary and Warren to Miami, but falls in love with her himself and tells Ted that she is now an overweight mother of four. Undeterred, Ted makes his own way to Miami, but soon finds that he has plenty of competition for Mary's attentions.


There's Something About Mary is one of the funniest films in years, recalling the days of the Zucker-Abraham-Zucker movies, in which (often tasteless) gags were piled on at a fierce rate. The difference is that co-writers and co-directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly have also crafted a credible story line and even tossed in some genuine emotional content. The Farrelly brothers' first two pictures, Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin, had some moments of uproarious laughter, but were uneven. With Mary, they've created a consistently hilarious romantic comedy, made all the funnier by the fact that you know that they know that some of their gags go way over the line.

Cameron Diaz stars as Mary, every guy's ideal. Ben Stiller plays a high-school suitor still hung up on her years later; the obstacles standing between him and her include a number of psychotic suitors, a miserable little pooch and, oh yeah, a murder charge. The Farrellys' admittedly simplistic camera work, which adapts easily to a TV screen, and the fact that you'll likely to laugh yourself so silly over certain scenes you'll want to replay them to see what you were missing while you were busy convulsing, make this a perfect film for home-viewing. --David Kronke, --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars We've got a bleeder... 23 Feb 2006
Here is the most tasteless, low brow comedy of the 90s. It is also the funniest. There really is no accounting for taste. Mary will make you laugh from your gut more than any other film that has been made. A number of its scenes have already passed into legend. Many are more memorable because of their audacity - the hair gel scene - than their belly laugh quota. Certainly, the funnier scenes involve Matt Dillon resurrecting a poochie and Stiller having to deal with the neighbourhood taking a gander at his frank and beans. The Farrellys know what makes people giggle but they also know how to tell a story and Mary's love story is improbably sweet - mainly due to Diaz. Dillon's performance is also noteworthy in its comic expertise, a skill that Hollywood far too often fails to invest in. If you're not easily offended, this film is a classic, an absolute blast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Comedy 22 Jun 2004
Theres something about mary is a hilarious comedy with a fantastic storyline.
If you watch this, you will not stop laughing, it is so funny.
With a list of fantastic actors, this is a must see movie.
The double disc edition is a fantastic buy, as it has a theatrical version, and the extended version, both with loads of special features!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 14 Feb 2004
I dont understand why there haven't beem more reviews for this because it is just so funny. I haven't seen this for ages but i can basically remember the plot. There are a few guys chasing this one girl ( cameron diaz). Ben stiller is involved who makes the whole thing evem more hilariously funny than before. This is one of those films that will have you laughing all the way through and not just snigger snigger, more like having to stop the dvd whilst you finish laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this film- non stop comedy! 4 Feb 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this film. I have watched it over 20 times. I recommend it to anyone with a sense of humour- the jokes are so subtle yet each one had me laughing for hours. My favourite part is the hairgel- I rewinded it over and over just to see the expression on Ben Stiller's face as she takes it from his ear!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest love story of our time... 19 Mar 2004
I must've seen this movie a hundred times, and it's still on my top 10 list. It truly is laugh-a-minute stuff for anyone with even a vague sense of humor, while the gags run the gamut from ridiculous to sublime, the plot twists ands turns, and the characters are actually well-developed and distinctive, more so than you'd expect for what is essentially, a romantic comedy. In my opinion too much attention has been paid to various scenes in the movie (I'm talking about clearing the pipes here...) and that shouldn't overshadow the many other hilarious bits. I think it definitely is a movie you need to watch repeatedly to pick up on all the running jokes and more subtle humor.
It also helps that Cameron Diaz is pretty much every man's dream - beautiful, low maintenance and willing to date nerds. Ker-ching!
Stiller is fabulous as usual, gamely getting humiliated movie after movie, but I think this movie was his zenith, the peak of his powers and so-on. he brings a smile to our faces, and at least once, tears to our eyes.
The supporting cast is also used effectively, with Lee Evans and Matt Damon in particular standing out.
The Farrelly brothers are the kings of skating the thin line between good and bad taste, funny and irritating. Here they come down solidly on the side of solid gold entertainment, although it appears many people here beg to differ as to which side of the line that is!
I think I'll go hit that 101st viewing now...

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is funny 17 Mar 2001
By A Customer
You've been looking for a comedy file that actually makes you laugh out loud? You've found it. There's something about Mary is a nicely constructed film that, for all its apparent bad taste, keeps delivering where it counts; in the laughs department. If you also want some depth to your comedy then watch two skilfully crafted performances from Stiller and Diaz as the two will-they-wont-they love birds. I hated Dumb and Dumber, but this takes the Farrelly brothers onto a higher level.
P.S. Also worth it for the director's commentary where you find out just how much of friends and family affair the film was.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's Something About This Film 2 Mar 2008
By sergio
There's Something About Mary is one of the funniest films of its kind and you have to admire how well it was made. Directed by the Farrelly Brothers and starring Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, Chris Elliott, Lee Evans and Brett Favre; There's Something About Mary starts off in 1985 in Rhode Island where Ted (Ben Stiller) and Mary (Cameron Diaz) are teenagers. After 20 minutes or so, it goes to the present day where Ted hires Pat Healy (Matt Dillon) to track down Mary in Miami. Full of funny moments such as 'the hair gel scene' and the 'zipper scene', There's Something About Mary will keep you laughing throughout.

There are three kinds of comedy. Comedies that make you smile (Sixteen Candles), comedies that make you laugh (Airplane), and comedies that cause you to nearly asphyxiate yourself from laughing so hard. Mary falls in the the 3rd category.This is the Farrely Brothers at their funniest. The idea is simple, a guy (Ben Stiller) who had a crush on a woman (Carmen Diaz) he knew since high school and continued to yearn for her privately, finally getting an opportunity to try to reconnect what never got going. This is something almost everyone can identify with.

When you watch it you just know how it's gonna end, and so the focus is not on the plot but the actual happenings in the movie, and there's a lot. First, the movie is funny, with its many gags that just keeps on coming (a Farrelly Bros. tradition). They might not be in everyone's taste, but at least they aren't forced or out of place.

Second, the people seem real enough to be in the situations they brought themselves into (kudos for the great acting, though it could be better). Third, Cameron Diaz is adorable, beautiful, and a marvel to look at unlike in failed ventures such as The Sweetest Thing. Plus, she got the job carrying the whole movie and she accomplished that ever so gracefully. You just can't help but fall in love with her too, along with every guy in the film.
