Trailers from Hell on 'There's Something About Mary'

Today on Trailers from Hell, writer and producer Chris Wilkinson takes on the Farrelly Brothers’ raunchy 1998 comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, “There’s Something About Mary.”

If Mel Brooks had directed “An Affair to Remember,” it might look something like this 1998 comedy from the Farrelly Brothers. Mixing gross out humor with a genuinely sweet romantic pay-off expanded its target audience and helped make “There’s Something About Mary” the fourth highest grossing film of its year. Starring Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon in a ribald spin on the screwball comedies of the thirties, the Farrellys proved themselves to be inspired vulgarians with their hearts on their sleeves and DNA on their pants.
