This week Devin and Amy submit their first comedy for Canon consideration: the 1998 Farrelly Brothers’ flick There’s Something About Mary. Does Cameron Diaz deserve more credit for being a fantastic actress? Would you categorize the movie as a "romantic" comedy? And almost 20 years later, what's more unnerving: the semen gag or Mary's disabled brother Warren? Tune in for the discussion-- and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!

I really do not think that There's Something About Mary deserves Canon status and ZAZ's Top Secret or Airplane (Top Secret more so) is far more deserving. It's very very funny but the above mentioned films are waaaaaaaaaaay better

I understand that they are different films but I think in terms of goofy, silly, look-anywhere-for-a-joke type films, Top Secret is better

I saw it 4 or 5 times in the theater when it came out ( I was in my early 20's.) I couldn't get enough of this movie when it came out and loved the collective shocked laughter of the audience. During the 3rd or 4th screening I remember a woman walking in with her two early teenaged sons and wondered how long she would last. She hastily gathered them up and left just as it became apparent that Ted was "clearing out the pipes."

THe most beautifully filmed comedy that I can think of is the Big Lebowski, or any of the other comedies by the Coens.
