Favorite Quote: Mary: Is that hair gel?
And I guess you all have seen it and agree with me so instead of writing about how funny it is or how cute Cameron Diaz is or how the zipper scene is one of the funniest penis accidents ever in a movie and always makes me rewind and re-watch it over and over again;
HOW COME CHRIS ELLIOTT ISN’T A BIGGER STAR??
If you know, let me know. I think he’s hilarious and that question keeps me up at nights.
Nerdiest Movie Trivia: The dialogue between Mary and Ted about how there aren’t enough meats on cones was originally written for an episode of Seinfeld that never aired. The Farrelly Brothers liked it and bought it for use in the movie.
