There’s Something About Mary

January 12th, 2003  |  Published in Uncategorized

There’s Something About Mary isn’t for everybody, but I own a copy. It might be because in the Farrellyverse, no one’s completely innocent, so what could be cruel in another context becomes a question of justice on a sliding scale, and perhaps gentle justice at that. Beyond fancy-pants rationalizations, this is a funny movie because it’s never satisfied with the first iteration of a gag… it always aims for the most over-the-top it can go and usually gets there.

Matt Dillon gets the best lines in this movie.
