So, after three days of trying to clean a skipping disc, I have finally finished watching “There’s Something About Mary”, a 1998 movie starring Cameron Diaz, Matt Dillon and Ben Stiller. Ted (played by Stiller) falls for Mary (played by Diaz) at first sight when he is 16 years old. After helping her mentally disabled brother, Warren, after being bullied in the school yard, Mary becomes indebted to Ted, and as he walks them home, they decide to go to the Senior prom together. However, the night of the prom, it seems to go bad when Ted messes with Warren’s ears on accident, pisses pff her step-dad, and to make it worse, zips his dick in his pants. The step-father showing his wife, the cop, the fireman, the cop says, “On the count of three. 1, 2…” followed by an EMT guy yelling, “We’ve got a bleeder!” After taking Ted to the hospital, he gets out a couple weeks later just to find out the Mary has been relocated. He goes 13 years without contact.
When Ted’s memory of Mary begins to resurface, his good friend Dom (played by Chris Elliot) suggests that he recieves help from private investigator Patrick Heely (Matt Dillon). When Heely goes to Miami, Florida to find Mary for Ted, his mission of private eye turns covetous when Heely falls in love with the kind, attractive Mary, and returns to Ted, telling Ted that Mary is not as his memory suggests, and that Ted had his window and should just look to some other broad. Heely then goes to Miami and uses his intel to create for Mary her dream guy. When Ted finds out the truth, he goes after Heely to find Mary in what is an epicly hilarious, romantic comedy that puts you on a fun ride. Filled with mini sub-love-triangles, and singers from time to time, “There’s Something About Mary” is a real treat.
