THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY is a no-holds-barred comedy tour-de-force in which 30-something Ben Stiller locates and courts his high school dreamgirl (Cameron Diaz), unwittingly enlisting the help of some of her more hilariously psychotic suitors. In-your-face sight gags and unapologetic raunchiness disguise a riotously funny love story that is actually very sweet. Be amazed at the impeccable casting and stellar performances of the supporting players.
Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:
Ted (Ben Stiller) is still in love with his high school prom date, Mary (Cameron Diaz), even though it's been years after the humiliating incident that cut their date short. Ted hires Pat, a private detective (Matt Dillon) to track her down, but Pat ends up falling in love with her too, starting a battle for Mary's heart.
