"'look, i've got semen in my hair, haha'"
3 stars

There's nothing extraordinary about mary, IMHO

I hate to be the odd man out here but i didn't really like this movie. there was too much Dumb and Dumber and not enough actual comedy. I'm not saying low-brow humor doesn't have its place in the world, but it seems to me that's what south park is for. I don't know why but i just couldn't laugh at this movie, even though i knew what was happening on screen should be seen as funny. I just felt like i was watching a jim carrey movie, not ben stiller, i just expect a little more of him than this. but still, if you're bored or lonely, you might as well see this movie, you could certainly do worse.

It's a comedy, just not a great one
