There's Something About Mary - Movie Synopsis & Plot

13 years ago, Ted was in his senior year of high school. None of his friends believed him when he said that Mary Jensen, the hottest girl in school, had asked him to the prom. It was going to be the greatest day of his life... Until he caught his family jewels in his zipper.

Present day, Ted has changed his look but not much else. He has no wife, no kids, no upstanding career. But he does still have a crush on Mary.

Deciding it wouldn't hurt, he hires a private investigator, Pat Healy, to go down to Miami and find out where Mary lives and how's she doing. Healy does but in the process falls in love with Mary himself. So, he tells Ted a few, small lies to keep him from meeting her, but, unfortunately for Healy, Ted still insists on going down there.

By the time Ted does get to Florida, after being arrested for sexual activities and murdering a man, Healy has already pushed himself into Mary's life (though he has lied to do so) and is well on his way to winning her heart. And then there's Warren, the supposed crippled architect. And Dom, the shoe-loving not. And Tucker. And of course Ted. Because, there's just 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.
