This comedy is about two guys who decide to rig the Special Olympics to pay off a debt by having one of them, Steve (Knoxville), pose as a contestant in the games, hoping to dethrone reigning champion, Jimmy. Mentally-challenged high jinks and hilarity surely follow. Written by
Jeffy and Lynn' outfits change multiple times, scenes out of order. When Jeffy arrives with Uncle Gary hes in a dark shirt and pants, When they meet Lynn hes in a gray shirt and red shorts she has a white shirt on and he doesn't have his bag. When she leads him to his room hes back in the dark shirt and shorts and she's in a blue shirt with pants and he has his bag again, then they switch back to her in white shirt and his red shorts with gray shirt for the race. There is not times to change between these scenes. See more »

When thinking about the Special Olympics, you normally would not think of comedy. Yet the Farrelly Bros. strike again. A goof-ball with a heart of gold is helped by a group of S.O. athletes, only to overcome odds, help a friend get his fingers back, and open himself up to vulnerability and attacks. Excellent performances by Knoxville, Heigl, and especially Jed Rees and Bill Chott for their unforgettable performances as Glen and Thomas (both from Galaxy Quest) . ANYONE who thought this movie to be politically incorrect...don't knock it until you have seen it! They hired mentally challenged performers for various roles, and rather than be the butt of the jokes, they are the ones making those jokes. WATCH THIS MOVIE AND ENJOY IT FOR WHAT IT IS...a good film, an excellent cast, and the brand of comedy one can only expect from the Farrelly Bros. Have fun and laugh!!!
