At the time of that movie's release Stiller was a notable presence on the small screen, but he'd also directed two movies - Reality Bites and the Jim Carrey vehicle The Cable Guy. Mary's success turned Stiller into a bona fide comedy leading man, and roles in big budget fare such as Meet the Parents, Dodgeball and Night at the Museum followed.
Of course Stiller has still found time to make films - who could forget Zoolander and Tropic Thunder? - but his output of five films in the space of a 20-year directing career could have been significantly higher had it not been for the Farrellys' 1998 comedy classic.
