In 1985, teen-nerd Ted challenges a high-schooler who's bullying retarded Warren. His concern prompts Warren's sister, the dazzling and desirable Mary to choose Ted as her senior prom date, but the date never happens. 13 years later Ted hires Pat to locate Mary, and the private investigator finds her in Miami. Pat claims to be a Harvard-educated architect and Mary falls in love with him. Meanwhile, Ted learns the truth but continues to encounter offbeat obstacles as he accelerates to Miami in hopes of finding happiness with his true love.

This comedy/romance movie stars Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, and tells the story of how he gets back the “one that got away”. Ted hires someone to track down the girl that he was supposed to go to prom with years ago, so that he can trick her into dating him. This leads to many outlandish and farce moments that will leave you with your jaw hitting the floor. It definitely goes beyond where most movies do, but still delivers a fairly entertaining and hilarious story. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars, for its sheer ability to entertain alone.

Did not see this when it first came out in the theaters. Glad I watched it. Absurd with an intelligent script, if that makes sense. Almost got disgusted with the twists and turns out of nowhere, however.

if freedom of speech were only applicable to popular speech, it would be meaningless.

VERY GOOD 1998 Farrelly Brothers film - whack sense of humor which may not work for everyone but did for me. The bits with the dog were good, as were others also a bit over the top.

This is easily one of my all time favorite movies, it is wonderfully acted, well scripted, and Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz have some of the best chemistry to ever grace the silver screen. If you haven't seen this movie yet you are really missing out on one of the best dark comedies ever made. I would highly recommend this movie to fans of darker comedies as well as to fans of Stiller as this is easily his best film to date.

[after telling Mary that he's an architect]

Pat Healy: Really, it's only a side thing for my true passion.

Mary: And what's that?

Pat Healy: I work with retards.

Mary: Isn't that a little politically incorrect?

Pat Healy: Yeah, maybe, but hell, no one's gonna tell me who I can and can't work with.

Ted: Japan? What's she doing in Japan?
Pat Healy: Well, you've heard of mail-order brides? Well, they go that way too.
Ted: What, are they desperate? She's a whale!
Pat Healy: You can't forget, it's a sumo culture, Ted. They pay by the pound over there. Sorta like, um, tuna.
