You may also want to keep [a] washcloth handy, just to stifle those embarrassing aftershocks of laughter.

Though the plot of this film is trivial, what makes it succeed is the sheer outlandishness of the comedy.

[The filmmakers], out of some hyperactive reflex, grab at any joke they can get, like toddlers trying desperately to spear fish in a creek--a shallow creek.

Sensational, sicko fun -- you won't believe your eyes -- and just the thing to shake up the creeping conservatism that is draining the vulgar life out of pop culture.

...sophomoric, politically incorrect, exaggerated, overdone, and trivial. Yet it's as hilarious as anything ever filmed.

There's Something About Mary doesn't approach the witty anarchy of movies like Animal House, The Naked Gun, or Hairspray.
