THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY
PETER & BOBBY FARRELLY (Directors/Co-screenwriters)
join forces behind the camera for their third film, following
their blockbuster debut on the 1994 box-office megahit, Dumb
and Dumber, which starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and
earned over $340 million throughout the world, and their follow-up
comedy, the critically-acclaimed bowling spoof, Kingpin,
starring Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid.
The Cumberland, Rhode Island natives rolled their first strike
with the sale of two episodes of the award-winning NBC series,
Seinfeld. They continued writing screenplays, 15 to-date,
and sold half-a-dozen before Dumb and Dumber made it to
the big screen. On their freshman effort, Peter made his directorial
debut, with Bobby co-producing the breakout comedy hit.
The pair pursued distinctly different educations, with Bobby (the
younger by a year) earning a B.S. degree in Geological Engineering
from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (attending on a hockey scholarship)
in New York and Peter studying at Providence College for his undergraduate
degree, and Columbia University for his Masters in creative writing.
Peter subsequently published his first novel Outside Providence,
which the brothers adapted and produced independently (under Michael
Corrente's direction) on location in Rhode Island immediately
prior to the start of their new film. His second novel, The
Comedy Writer, was recently published.
