There's Something About Mary

Critics Consensus

There's Something About Mary proves that unrelentingly, unabashedly peurile humor doesn't necessarily come at the expense of a film's heart.

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (70) | Rotten (14)

  • 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!

    February 3, 2009 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • Despite my earlier reservations about Bobby and Peter Farrelly, they're progressively winning me over, partly because they keep getting better.

    February 3, 2009 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    There's certainly something about Mary in the film, everyone loves her!! I loved the humiliation humor in the film and the montages, the jokes were pretty good (The interrogation scene was hilarious) it's a feel good retro comedy
