An outrageous romantic comedy, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY stars
Ben Stiller as the lovable loser Ted, Cameron Diaz as the luscious
beauty Mary, and Matt Dillon as the pathological liar Healy.
Joining the cast are Chris Elliott as Ted's friend, Dom; Lee Evans
as Mary's architect friend Tucker; Lin Shaye as Magda, Mary's
wily housemate in Miami; and Jeffrey Tambor as Sully, Healy's
alcoholic colleague. Also starring in the film are W. Earl Brown
as Mary's handicapped brother, Warren, Markie Post as Mary's mom
and veteran actor Keith David as Mary's stepfather.
THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY is directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly
from a screenplay they co-wrote with Ed Decter and John J. Strauss.
The film is produced by Frank Beddor, Michael Steinberg, Charles
B. Wessler and Bradley Thomas, with Marc S. Fischer serving as
The film also reunites the Farrelly Brothers with cinematographer
Mark Irwin, A.S.C., C.S.C, visual consultant Sidney J. Bartholomew,
Jr., costume designer Mary Zophres and film editor Christopher
Greenbury, all of whom collaborated with the Farrellys on their
two previous big screen efforts, Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin.
There's something about the Farrelly Brothers that elicits such
comments as outrageous... tasteless... wacky... offensive... crazy...
mad... and raunchy. Not from critics, mind you. Those observations
come from the film's cast!
Ben Stiller, whose character Ted becomes the butt of many of the
film's gags, proclaims, "There are going to be some people
who are a bit offended by this movie. Then again, some people
will be gratified to see that somebody's finally putting something
up on the screen that is tasteless!" Adds co-star Matt Dillon,
whose character also suffers a few indignities along the way,
"Peter and Bobby really like to push the envelope."
And, Cameron Diaz, playing the object of everyone's affections,
the lovely Mary, caps off the endorsements when she exclaims,
"They cross every line in this movie, which is outrageous
and totally unique. The thing you learn very quickly with Peter
and Bobby is that you can never go too far."
Not that Peter and Bobby Farrelly haven't earned such heartfelt
praise. With their unmatched brand of bad taste on display in
their first two big screen outings, these kingpins of movie comedy
may have redefined the industry phrase box-office gross. Who can
forget an indisposed Jeff Daniels relieving himself on a broken
commode in the Farrellys' 1994 debut feature, Dumb and Dumber,
or a smiling Woody Harrelson, adorned with a milk mustache, pleased
with his efforts at milking what he thought was a cow in their
follow-up film, Kingpin.
With their unique brand of humor, the Farrellys struck box-office
gold, sparing no one in their wacky wake. Dumb and Dumber subsequently
earned over $300 million worldwide. Two years later, the fraternal
filmmakers scored again with the critically acclaimed bowling
The Farrellys strike yet again with THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY,
another outlandish cinematic exercise. Bobby Farrelly, the younger
of the sibling celluloid jesters, calls their new collaboration
"a cross between When Harry Met Sally... and Blazing
Saddles. You might even call it When Harry Stalked Sally...
It's basically about a couple of guys stalking the same woman,
with whom both are truly in love."
The Farrellys certainly follow diffe
