Farrelly Brothers Respond To Mental Health Criticism

23 June 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

There's Something About Mary (1998) creators Bobby and Peter Farrelly have apologized to mental health groups over the upset caused by their portrayal of schizophrenia in new movie Me, Myself & Irene (2000). In the film, Jim Carrey plays a policeman with a split personality - and groups such as The Alliance for the Mentally Ill claim it pokes fun at what is actually a very serious disease. But the Farrelly brothers say that wasn't their intention. A statement says, "We certainly in no way intended to make light of this situation. "We approached this movie as a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde movie and we're in no way trying to make any kind of statement about split personality disorder or schizophrenia. We apologize if there are people out there who are offended by that." They add, "We really don't try to offend and if we thought it was truly offensive we would cut it. Having said that, some people are offended that baseball is played on Sundays. There's always somebody offended." »

Bobby Farrelly explains, "The first time she was ever on the set we were filming Dumb and Dumber (1994). We had the Jeff Daniels scene when he was on the toilet and she was like, `This doesn't look good.'" But since then Mom has gotten used to their sense of humor to the point where she became an extra in their new movie, Me, Myself and Irene (2000). Bobby says, "Her and my Dad have been in all the movies. In this one she and her friends are in a scene where Jim Carrey flashes them. You know she enjoys it!" »

Jim Carrey Suffers For The Sake Of Comedy

12 June 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jim Carrey is willing to risk a battered and bruised body for the sake of comedy realism. The Mask, The (1994) star insists on performing his own stunts for films - and often finds it a painful experience. He says, "If it means a bruise or a bang or possibly a sprained ankle if you do it wrong then I'd rather do it myself because the audience wants to know that it's you doing the bit." And while making the new Farrelly Brothers film Me, Myself and Irene (2000), he got in some particularly painful positions. He adds, "I was hurting myself every day. I would go home and go, `oh a jugular's open!' I was beat up pretty badly but in the moment you don't really think about it, you're just going for the comedy. The thing falling off the fence and flying down the hill, the hill was much steeper than anybody expected. It wasn't planned that I would fly back up into the frame and I sprained my ankle for real during the rehearsals of that scene. I spun over, jumped off my left foot to get back up into the frame and they caught me perfectly. I would've been killed if they had missed but it's a bit thrill seeking. It's X games." »
