dumb & dumber is funniest but i really like shallow hal and the one with greg kinnear & matt damon as siamese twins, farrelly bros are the best for like 00s john hughes funny/sweet movies

I like when they give the dead budgie back to the blind girl in Dumb & Dumber. Bar none their funniest moment.

Bill Murray's character in Kingpin has the same surname as me. Someone was watching it on cable once and called me up to tell me that. I said, "Well alright."

ok i know you didn't just not allow us to vote for Osmosis Jones

dude i remember a film called osmosis jones but im pretty sure i never knew they had anything to do with it. but just go with the last option, thatll cover it.

i have watched all of shallow hal, & found it far far more sweet than funny. which isnt really what i look for in a comedy.

and nothing theyve done comes close to approaching planes trains & automobiles in terms of funny+sweet.

ABBOTT THAT REALLY IS YR LAST NAME??? OMG. JUST FUCKING MARRY ME ALREADY.

my professor made us watch the end of fever pitch the other day and i wanted to kill myself, but dumb & dumber, something abt mary, kingpin, stuck on you are all fucking ultra-classic. i still laugh really hard at dumb and dumber which is more than i can say for like... tommy boy, which i re-watched the other day and laughed only intermittently (specifically "did i hear a 'niner' in there? were you calling from a walkie talkie?")

I thought you hated me now! And Jesus, I know shit all about the Yankees, I don't really think they suck.

Shallow Hal is probably my least favorite movie of all time. I voted for "I Am Clinically Retarded."

Pete Droge's favorite Farrelly Bros movie is probably Kingpin for its use of his hit song "If You Don't Love Me (I'll Kill Myself)" which is probably my favorite non-Gin Blossoms Gin Blossoms song

I hadn't seen a Farrelly Brothers film since Dumb and Dumber thirteen years ago before going to see The Heartbreak Kid tonight.

I found it a disturbing insight into how easily disconnected from reality a man's mind can get. The audience's mind too -- it acts as a study of the dramatic licence we afford romantic comedies, by letting us get carried away with Stiller's exploits before pulling us up short in a "WHAT AM I THINKING - THE MAN'S A COMPLETE MONSTER!" kind of way. Michelle Monaghan's perfection in the dream girl role helps. It's also a brilliantly cartoonish account of how romantic notions of others can be burst.

I really loved it.

not as foul as Apatow's worst. The guys are outright idiots at the beginning, but of course things get (relatively) warm & fuzzy.

I was most impressed w/ Christina Applegate! Billy Wilder woulda cast her a lot.

disappointed that the Farrellys don't actually have a movie called I Am Clinically Retarded, unless that was the working title for Fever Pitch or something

btw of the 4 big gross-out set pieces in this one, audience groaned more than laughed at 2 or 3.

how about Applebee's product placement?

kind of shrill and very self-righteous (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 24 February 2011 22:05 (seven years ago) Permalink

is that 1 of the gross out set pieces

johnny crunch, Thursday, 24 February 2011 22:37 (seven years ago) Permalink

I only saw two gross out gags in this one but they both seemed really out of place, still admit I laughed

altogether I can say it was better than Shallow Hal (which was god awful), mostly entertaining but only a few legit laughs in the whole thing; the whole side plot with Christina Applegate and the baseball player seemed unnecessarily cruel and a bit too serious for a movie like this. also it has the Apatow staple plot where an awkward, loserish guy somehow manages to charm a girl way out of his league by being weird and stammering a lot around her

frogbs, Monday, 7 March 2011 19:55 (seven years ago) Permalink

The Applegate strand was the most appealing one for me! Needed some 'serious'!

Also, ballplayer had an awesome torso.

except this woman is pretty much just a pair of tits

i mean really, there is nothing at all there other than that

apatow broads usually have something beyond that

loved the hipsters-who-like-snow-patrol bit, zeitgeisty

wait, I guess there were two women who wanted him, I would only say one of them was just a pair of whoppers

the hipster thing was kinda funny at first but it just veers off into really weird territory at the end, like "we need an exciting climax with action and some danger" so they just have someone go completely off the deep end for no real reason

that said the hard cut to credits in the end really was hilarious

Dargis and Gleiberman are fans of T3S. I dodged this bullet through lack of advance screenings.

Kingpin is not *that* funny, that's all. (I was even tired of Murray by the last 20 minutes.) Their plots always turn to mush, but not always as dully as this one.

There's really nothing more '90s than cameos by Urge Overkill AND Roger Clemens.

Peter Farrelly has in fact made a far richer, more rewarding film than Green Book addressing the subject race in America. It is called My, Myself and Irene (2000), and involves Jim Carrey being cucked by Tony Cox over a period of decades.
