For pure, unadulterated, rude, crude, stupid, disgusting, scatological puerile humor, you can't do better.

This reprehensible and deeply unfunny film is obviously critic-proof.

There's Something About Mary may be many things, but dull and routine aren't among them.

Comparing this to other movies that were actually funny is insulting.

I wasn't completely won over with so much comedy that depended on making fun of someone else's problems.

Sometimes tender, mostly wildly over-the-top, the Farrellys have managed to make a movie at least ten times funnier than "Dumb and Dumber."
