Outrageously funny comedy that only veers from the gutter when it feels like taking a dip in the sewer. Set in 1985, the prologue introduces us to geeky Ted (Stiller), who gets a prom date with class knockout Mary (Diaz) after sticking up for her retarded brother Warren (Brown). The big date is not to be, however, for a vicious tuxedo zipper to the privates incapacitate Ted. Thirteen years later, Ted is still depressed over the incident, and still carries a torch for Mary. He hires Pat (Dillon), an oily detective with enormous choppers, to find her. Unfortunately for Ted, Pat is instantly smitten with Mary and lies. Ted learns the truth and heads to Miami to find her himself. Merely looking at the plot does not do justice to this lowbrow masterpiece.

There's Something about Mary
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

There's Something about Mary is a hilarious movie. It's definitely a must see. There's a great cast, which include, Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon, and Ben Stiller. This definitely has to be one of my favorite Ben Stiller movies. I think it's cute when the geeky guy or not-so-popular guy gets the popular girl. This movie will definitely have you falling out of your seat laughing hysterically. The three actors do a great job together. There's Something about Mary is about a geeky guy in high school who's head over heels for this popular girl.named Mary. Years later he wonders what she's been doing and would like to contact her. So he hire a detective to find her. He finds out the detective is trying to get with Mary. So he goes and finds her to get her back. This is definitely a movie you should watch. It's a great comedy.
