There’s Something About Mary

theres-something-about-mary-r-rated-romantic-comedy“There’s Something About Mary” is my second favourite R rated romantic comedy, next only to Amélie. It’s a comedy on a whole different track- the journey of an incredibly awkward man as he chases a beauty. Mary is like a rock dropped into a pond filled with waterlilies, waterlilies that are flung about wily nily by her captivating force. Watch as men turn to silly putty, trying to mold themselves to caricatures that will resemble anything to catch even a glance from her enchanting eyes.
Ben Stiller- awkward and kind hearted
Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz are great in “There’s something about Mary”, but the real reason I love this film is supporting actor Matt Dillon, who counters Ben Stillers kind hearted character as an unethical private detective named Pat Healy who will stop at nothing to get Mary (Cameron Diaz) in bed with him. Okay, that was a mouthful. Basically, Pat Healy makes this film (although Diaz and Stillers are no slouches!)
This film is a mix of two different genres: romantic comedy and gross-out film. It does exactly what it set out to do, which is make you laugh and feel good, although there are some rather disgusting scenes that I won’t spoil for you. Guess what Mary uses for hair gel? Well, I guess you will have to watch the movie to find out.
One of the most conniving bastards to hit the silver screen

I’m laughing as I write this, remembering the sleazy detective Pat Healy and the lengths he goes to lie, cheat, and steal away Mary’s heart. This movie shows the length that men will go to win the love of someone they are obsessed with, in a comical fashion of course. If you only had the scenes with Pat Healy, this movie might have made my list of top comedies on that alone.

Looking for top comedies? Well, I would recommend that you watch this comedy if you are looking for a fun night. This movie is especially great to watch with friends to share the laughs. Just make sure you use the bathroom first- you might pee yourself laughing. Okay, that was corny. Don’t worry, this movie is funnier than me.
