THERES SOMETHING ABOUT MARY
The Farrelly brothers nail the laughs in this hugely popular comedy about a hugely popular girl. Mary (Cameron Diaz) is the ideal girlfriend of every guy she meets, especially frustrated high school suitor Ted (Ben Stiller). But he's got plenty of competition from Matt Dillon and other unexpected rivals. This special edition includes the original theatrical version and a new extended version with extra footage.
When megalomaniacal White Goodman (Ben Stiller), the owner of a trendy, high-end fitness center, makes a move to take over the struggling local gym run by happy-go-lucky Pete La Fleur (Vince Vaughn), there's only one way for La Fleur to fight back: dodgeball. Aided by a dodgeball guru (Rip Torn) and Goodman's attorney (Christine Taylor), La Fleur and his rag-tag team of underdogs launch a knock-down, drag-out battle in which the winner takes all.
The writing-directing siblings Peter and Bobby Farrelly train their camera on Hal (Jack Black), a terminal bachelor obsessed with scoring a knockout babe. A chance encounter in an elevator with a self-help guru imbues Hal with the (hallucinatory) power to see people's inner beauty over their outer shell. Soon, he finds true love in Rosie, a 400-lb. social worker who appears to Hal in the lithe form of Gwyneth Paltrow.
