Blends ludicrous fantasy, uncomfortable reality, and cartoonish slapstick, which magically straightens out the mess of combating characters - all with romance and sincerity.

Farrelly bros' classic is full of gross-out laughs.

The movie managed to walk a line between raunchy, gross-out comedy and a romantic comedy.

Gauche, garish, and gross, a prime example of the coarsening of our culture and of the art of comedy in film. It's also pretty darn funny. [Blu-ray]

If the sight of a large chunk of a man's private parts caught in the teeth of a zipper is funny -- and I'm not saying it isn't -- then have I got a movie for you.

This one is dumbest. And funniest, as if that matters even a little bit!

Losers competing against one another (and even bigger losers) for a dishy woman: That's the setup for [the Farrellys'] wrackingly funny new farce There's Something About Mary, maybe the ultimate nerd masochistic fantasy.

Crudely made, somewhat overlong and larded with plenty of things that don't work, pic stands as proof positive that a comedy can be far from perfect and still hit the bull's-eye if it delivers when it counts in its big scenes.

Remarkable for all the sick and politically incorrect sight gags it gets away with in its rule-breaking romp through the supposedly sacred laws of what makes people laugh, and what doesn't.

It was the raunchy comedy that raked in the headlines and had audiences shaking their heads in offended laughter, then coming back the weekend after, dragging in friends by their arms.

Crude, offensive, sexist -- and embarrassingly hilarious.
Dec 6, 2005
Everyone falls for Mary -- why wouldn't they? -- and no one is spared from the Farrellys' razor sharp raunch.
Apr 9, 2005
One of the weirdest romantic comedies around, combining scatalogical and no-taste humor with naivete and sweetness.

...there were also moments when I was actually bored.
Apr 26, 2004
Two very entertaining hours -- something that Hollywood comedies these days fail to deliver to the audience, with or without references to certain bodily fluids.

Gross-out laughs with heart.

When it's not mean spirited, tastelessness can be riotously funny. And this is a gag-a-thon of hugely funny proportions.
