There's Something About Mary Movie Review
They brought you Dumb & Dumber. They brought you Kingpin (which I neither have seen nor want to see). And now they brought you There's Something About Mary. This movie is in a world of it's own. In the long run, it's not as funny as Dumb & Dumber, but, individual scene-wise, it blasts every other comedy out of the sky. Some scenes are just so hilarious you will be on the floor laughing, even if the jokes are crude, disgusting, and repugnant. There's Something About Mary is a gross movie, including a couple shots most other directors wouldn't dare include. The whole movie is based on sexual content, which, with Cameron Diaz in the lead role as Mary, can be excused. Unfortunately, there was excessive strong language that the film didn't need but, if you go to a film like this, with painfully hilarious, sexually-related scenes and lots of crude jokes, it doesn't really matter. There's Something About Mary is a great flick and I wouldn't be surprised if it will be even better the second time around.
