Duo of Farrelly brothers comedies, both featuring the brothers' trademark 'gross' sense of humour and farcical plot lines. In 'Stuck on You', Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon star as conjoined twins Walt and Bob Tenor. Desperate to become a professional actor, Walt persuades the shy and reticent Bob to move to Hollywood. However, the twosome find Tinseltown to be less accommodating than life back home. 'There's Something About Mary' is another oddball comedy, this time featuring romantic obsession and unusual hair styling products. In 1985, high school senior Ted Stroehmann (Ben Stiller) gets a date with gorgeous classmate Mary Jenson (Cameron Diaz) after rescuing her mentally handicapped brother, Warren, from a bully. The date is ruined when Ted catches his penis in his fly zip and has to be rushed to hospital. Thirteen years on, Ted is still obsessed with Mary, and hires private detective Pat Healy (Matt Dillon) to find her. Healy tracks Mary and Warren to Miami, but falls in love with her himself and tells Ted that she is now an overweight mother of four. Undeterred, Ted makes his own way to Miami, but soon finds that he has plenty of competition for Mary's attentions.
