Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's Something About Mary is one of the funniest movies 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 cowriters and codirectors Bobby and Peter Farrelly have also crafted a credible story line and even tossed in some genuine emotional content. The Farrelly brothers' first two movies, Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin, had some moments of uproarious raunch, 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 Mary 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 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 video movie. --David Kronke

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Comedy. October 14, 2005
Format:DVD
I really can't understand how this one didn't get five stars from everyone here. I mean I know that tastes differ, but I think people may have been expected something this one couldn't possibly deliver. As a comedy, it is absolutely phenomenal. I really have to say that it's the only movie of the nineties that can match up with Stripes or Animal House. It's utterly amazing.

There's Something about Mary is a mélange of every kind of comedy. There's slapstick, physical situation, and intellectual social satire. This movie made Ben Stiller and rightly so. I recall seeing it in the theatre and not being able to breathe at times due to the convulsions erupting from my abdomen. No time was this more true than when Stiller walks into the gay rest stop and gets busted, but there are a million scenarios that could be cited. All the actors were sensational. Matt Dillon's character is exquisite in his cheesiness and he really excels in his role especially when he's playing football with the "retards" and showing off his sensitive side by pummeling them on the gridiron. Chris Elliot is exceptional in his role and any film that features Jonathan Richman that much is special and rare. I could not recommend this one any more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonstop humor! July 21, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
You will laugh from begining to end with this movie. The humor is very crude at times, but not raunchy. I found myself saying,"oh my" and at the same time laughing out loud.
The storyline is unpredictable and extremely enjoyable.
It is a comedy and love story all in one, intertwined superbly.
I wouldn't recommend watching this with your mom and dad. I am 37 and would have crawled under the carpet if my mom and dad were in the room watching this movie during the scenes "before the big date."

2.0 out of 5 stars What are they thinking?? May 26, 2009
By Malcolm
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I hate it when they don't create a Blu Ray with a proper master copy! Why the hell would they bother using a lower quality copy to create this??!?! It's just plain lazy. Don't bother buying, as it is obviously about the same picture quality as the DVD you already own!

WAKE UP MOVIE STUDIOS!! IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE HIGH DEF, FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER, WHY WOULD WE BOTHER BUYING IT IF THE PICTURE IS THE SAME AS DVD!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting! December 17, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This was an interesting movie. It kept me laughing so hard that the next morning my stomach muscles felt as if I had done about a 1000 crunches. You will truly enjoy this one, but if you are soft of heart, weak of stomach or easily offended this may not be the movie for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Stiller My Quaking Sides! June 27, 2005
Format:DVD
This movie was my first real experience of Ben Stiller and in the numerous times I have seen it, I have yet to tire of it. It endures as one of my favourite movies, and I hate romantic comedies as a rule! However, this is not your usual romantic comedy by any stretch of the imagination.

The story basically carries you along the life of angst ridden, therapy dependent and introverted Ted, (Stiller), as he tries to track down the one high school love he had. That would be Mary, (Diaz). In the process, he sends out a private detective with a host of his own problems, (Dillon), who also falls for this Mary. That is also in addition to the host of others who have fallen for this girl. Throw in a serial killer, a gay bust at a roadside rest stop, Puffy the dog and some healthy doses of speed, and great comedy is what you have.

Stiller is great as the pathetic and somewhat anal-retentive Ted. The role seems excellently suited to Stiller's style of acting and character. He really shines in this movie, and it is largely his work here that has got me to be a large fan of his. Diaz comes across well as the sports loving, butch, but-so-sexy-at-the-same-time perfect woman, Mary. Both of them lack some of the chemistry of other on-screen love interests, but that lack is hardly noticeable in the chaos of the comedy.

Be warned that there is a lot of sexuality used in the jokes, and that some of it is pretty sick. However, overall, the comedy is truly great, even if it has a sick moment or two.

I laughed myself almost to oxygen starved loss of consciousness. I have seen the movie perhaps more than 10 times, and I am not yet bored of it. If comedy of a high standard and only many levels, (some crude levels, too), is your thing, I would recommend you get this movie. It is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Scottsdale viewer, settle down June 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Ok, I admit it. This movie is incredibly stupid and has scenes that represent how our culture has turned to toilet humor for laughs, but it is one seriously funny movie. I agree with the other comments that this movie deserves(d) funniest movie of the year. When I saw the previews for it originally, I too thought what a waste of a movie and how stupid can we be, but I constantly heard how funny it was. Stil, I didn't go see it until it was in the dollar cinema with terrible sound and picture quality. Still, the movie was sold out with people seeing it for the upteenth time.....and I laughed my A** off. I was suprised and a little regretful that I chose to miss it at a quality theater. Anyway, now that it is going onsale for preorder DVD, I was first in line to pay for it 3 months before I could actually load it into my player and laugh some more......So, if you don't like it, too bad.....there are other movies to see. And yes, the Simpson's is equally funny, in a different way. Raising Arizona with Nick Cage is also a comic masterpiece, but give movie viewers credit, sometimes, people want to be humored in way that TSAM can give them, without being labeled as infantiles and morons. Believe me, I know many people much more intelligent and smarter than yourself (Scottsdale viewer) have seen and enjoyed Mary more than you could ever imagine. Watch it again, maybe you'll like this time.
