John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Ted was a geek in high school, who was going to go to the prom with one of the most popular girls in school, Mary. The prom date never happened, because Ted had a very unusual accident. Thirteen years later he realizes he is still in love with Mary, so he hires a private investigator to track her down. That investigator discovers he too may be in love with Mary, so he gives Ted some false information to keep him away from her. But soon Ted finds himself back into Mary's life, as we watch one funny scene after another.Written by

The hotel where Ted stays in Miami, the Cardoza, is a real hotel, owned by Gloria Estefan. See more »
When Ted first arrives at Mary's house for prom, Warren is seen in the background with the Rubik's cube. He has just finished solving it, and holds it up slightly. In the next shot of Warren, he is again finishing solving the Cube and again holds it up. See more »

A montage of scenes from the film as well as outtakes involving the cast lip-syncing to The Foundations' song "Build Me Up Buttercup" runs during the end credits. See more »
In the Fox broadcast of the film, along with the expected dialogue dubs (for example: "I'm fooling with you" rather than "I'm f*cking with you"; "That's bullcrap" rather than "That's bullsh*t", etc.), several scenes use alternate footage in place of the more R-Rated footage. Among them:
Before the infamous "hair gel scene", Dom uses the phrase "release your manhood" rather than the more R-Rated "Blow your load".
The infamous "hair gel scene" only shows a wide angle with Mary and Ted up until the point that Mary takes the "hair gel" off his ear and wipes it in her hair (while the scene where Ted masturbates is cut, Ted is shown searching the room for it). When played up in this manner, it implies that it is actually a wad of hairgel, as opposed to a male biological product.
In scene where Dom and his wife watch "Cops" together, rather than show Dom's wife performing oral sex, they are simply cuddled up together on the couch.
When Ted's friend calls him "a f*cking liar", alternate footage used shows him simply saying, "You're a liar."
Insanely off the wall comedy from the Farrelly Brothers that delivers from start to finish. Wonderful early sequence with Keith David as Diaz's father busting heavily braced Stiller's chops. Stiller's zipper scene goes down as one of the funniest and most painful things I have ever witnessed on film. Diaz is divine the woman of Stiller's dreams...Dillon is hired to find Diaz...He falls in love with her and gives Stiller a bum story... Lee Evans, a pizza boy, is in love with her too... then Brett Favre comes into the picture. Every scene has something memorable from Dillon's attempts at reviving a dog to Stiller's "pre date entertainment." A classic that doesn't take itself too seriously.
