If you liked "There's Something About Mary" you'll love the sequel.
16 April 1999 | by (Kirkland, Washington) – See all my reviews

David Spade fans will undoubtedly love this well-made vehicle. He finally gets to play himself, after several films wasted his talents by forcing him to play the unlikeable nerd. Now he's playing the nerd, but it's the sympathetic dork that is the essence of Spade's humor. He ridicules himself so effectively, you don't mind that he's ridiculing everybody else.

There are some scenes that are downright hysterical, and I'm not the kind of person who usually laughs out loud at movies. Some of the dog jokes wore a little thin (see below) but the laughs are consistent. The musical number at the end is an absolute scream.

Sophie Marceau does a good job as the unattainable beauty. And if you think some of her punchline deliveries are flat, try telling a joke in your fourth language and see how much "zip" you put on it.

It is a great movie and a lot of fun. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention one criticism. It's A LOT like "There's Something About Mary." This is what happens when an inexpensive comedy makes over 100 million bucks. From the dog gags, to the zany things two men will do to get the perfect woman, to the sexually-driven old lady humor, this was a film that was obviously trying to fill a niche. And the shot-for-shot remake of "Mary's" closing credits will make you think they brought in Gus Van Sant.

But since I, and a lot of people, loved "Mary," the preceding paragraph is not so much a criticism as an observation. Don't let it stop you from seeing a terrific film. Next to the newly-minted multi-billionaire Adam Sandler, Spade is a comedy genius. Of course, next to the newly-minted multi-billionaire Adam Sandler, Gallagher II is a comedy genius. But that's beside the point. Spade sells this movie, and I highly recommend it.
