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

(at around 1h 21 mins) After Norm gets out of his car to deliver his pizza you see Pat drive from behind the house. Why would Pat be in his car behind the house before Norm even gets there? 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 »
To receive a PG rating the Singapore version was very heavily censored. It runs 6 minutes less then the original version. By MPAA standards it would probably get a PG-13 at most. Here are just a few of the many things that are censored in this version:
All profanities have been dubbed over.
In the bathroom scene when the construction worker says "Hoooly Sh*t!" and then we get a look at Ted's genitals caught in the zipper is cut out.
The scene where Pat Healy spies on Mary we do not see Magda's old saggy breast. Instead when Pat pulls out his big binoculars it just pans back to Mary putting her shirt on.
The masturbation scene is completely cut out of the film. But we still see Don talk to him about and convince him to masturbate before the scene and we see the "Hair Gel" result.

There's something about Mary, and I agree.
The plot is nothing new: A guy trying to get the love of the one he admired. We all have seen something like this in the past, and we will see something like this in the future. But in this movie the plot isn't important.
When you watch it you just know how it's gonna end, and so the focus is not on the plot but the actual happenings in the movie, and there's a lot. First, the movie is funny, with its many gags that just keeps on coming (a Farrelly Bros. tradition). They might not be in everyone's taste, but at least they aren't forced or out of place. Second, the people seem real enough to be in the situations they brought themselves into (kudos for the great acting, though it could be better). Third, Cameron Diaz is adorable, beautiful, and a marvel to look at. Plus, she got the job carrying the whole movie and she accomplished that ever so gracefully. You just can't help but fall in love with her too, along with every guy in the film.
This is a very good romantic comedy by the Farrelly Bros.. Just like in "Dumb and Dumber" or "King Pin", the brothers have made a comedy that has just the right amount of everything. Excellent job!!
