    In the movie, "There's Something About Mary", the story is of a loser who hires a private investigator to find his high school sweetheart - the love of his life. Unfortunately for him, the investigator that he hires falls in love with the woman. The two men then compete for her affection. 

    This Farrelly brothers comedy is directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly ("Dumb and Dumber"). 

    imho - Choppy, coarse, crude, sporadic sophomoric humor. There is the zipper scene and the gel scene and the dog scenes. Beautiful innocent Cameron Diaz is the focus of the attention. Ben Stiller does a good lost teen Ted who never makes it to his Senior Prom. Matt Dillon plays such a low life classic sleaze of a private investigator that you wonder what could Cameron possible see in him. Maybe itís the pencil moustache. Nicely segmented in bytes with interludes by singer Jonathan Richman. Strong supporting cast. Full of energy. Refreshing change from most of the other films this summer. Some scenes may offend some. Bobby and Peter Farrelly have done a good job. The audience seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. Recommended if you want some humor in your life. 

    The film was shot in Miami and Rhode Island. 

    Romantic comedy.
