  • Bob Graham

    In the person of Cameron Diaz, Mary is an island of sanity, good-natured humanity and genuine sweetness in an ocean of anarchy. Without her presence, There's Something About Mary would be merely sophomoric and tasteless.

  • Peter Travers

    Sensational, sicko fun -- you won't believe your eyes -- and just the thing to shake up the creeping conservatism that is draining the vulgar life out of pop culture.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joe Garden

    One of the funniest movies of the year, but you may need to shower afterwards.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Even when you're able to guess the next calamity, it's still a shock in its ejaculatory intensity. The Farrellys never throw in the towel. Pretentious Sundance independents could learn a lot from such pistols.

  • Susan Wloszczyna

    A gut-busting blast of tasteless tomfoolery.

    Their taste is as bad as their timing is exquisite.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    The Farrellys here show a gift not just for finding humor where others have feared to look but for presenting it in a way that is surprisingly close to irresistible.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elvis Mitchell

    A romantic comedy that's a hoot in every sense, worth a smidgen of disapproval and a whole lot of helpless laughter...The film works ridiculously well because it never stoops to being mean-spirited or (despite all appearances) authentically inane.

  • Stephen Hunter

    This one is dumbest. And funniest, as if that matters even a little bit!

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Their gross-out humor is basically sweet tempered, for all its tweaking of PC attitudes, and though this film looks slapdash, its script (by the Farrellys, Ed Decter, and John J. Strauss) is surprisingly well put together.

  • Roger Ebert

    After months and months of comedies that did not make me laugh, here at last is one that did.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    [The film] occasionally had me convulsed with laughter.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • The performers all fall effortlessly into their slapstick roles and the troubadour duo -- the film's Greek chorus -- adds a delightfully poetic touch.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    For those who park their sense and sensibility at the 'plex door, there's plenty to enjoy in the performances, the rowdy innocence of the whole thing, the closing sing-along of Build Me Up Buttercup--and the vision of Cameron Diaz in giggly, gangly bloom.

    Time Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    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.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    A surprisingly large number of the laughs work, although, understandably, a good number of them also fall flat. You can bet that whenever the story slows down to advance the plot concerning its paper-thin characters, the film takes a noticeable dip.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Barbara Shulgasser

    A supremely silly movie, which means that it has moments of boring idiocy mixed with moments of inspired hilarity.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    There are several scenes in There's Something About Mary that are so absurdly original and outrageous they will leave audiences talking about them for weeks.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The laughs are low -- very low -- and the comedy often flags. But two elaborate sequences involving a bad-tempered little ankle-biter are standouts.

  • Charles Taylor

    The type of comedy the Farrellys love requires dizzy, pell-mell pacing. If There's Something About Mary were tightened up by about 20 minutes, it would be much funnier. Full Review
  • Kendall Hamilton

    If the film has a problem, it's that the Farrelly brothers, co-writers and directors, seem content to bunt for long stretches between home runs.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Fitfully amusing and ultimately kind of heartwarming in a twisted sort of way

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    This comedy is as down-and-dirty as you'd expect from the Farrelly team...but more than one sequence manages to be hilarious on its own outrageously crass terms.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The Farrellys may well be the new kingpins of adolescent slob comedy, but There's Something About Mary doesn't approach the witty anarchy of movies like "Animal House," "The Naked Gun," or "Hairspray."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Denby

    The general insensitivity of the atmosphere gets one down after a while. None of these people go together: Friends don't seem like friends, lovers don't seem like lovers. In brief, it's not enough just to have bad taste. You have to have talent, too.

    A shocking and hilarious triumph.
