As the reigning kings of gross-out comedy, the Farrelly Brothers spent their careers writing and directing outlandish comedies that often pushed the boundaries of taste, while producing big laughs and huge box office. After receiving their start writing for the small screen, the Farrellys emerged with their first comedy feature, "Dumb and Dumber" (1994), which rode the coattails of star Jim Carrey to become one of their biggest box office hits. Following the funnier, but underperforming "Kingpin" (1996), they crossed the romantic comedy with their trademark gross-out humor for "There's Something About Mary" (1998), a non-stop laugh that was also a huge hit both home and abroad. But after "Mary," the Farrelly Brothers lost a bit of steam with a rather underwhelming reunion with Carrey for "Me, Myself and Irene" (2001), while failing to earn many laughs with the uncharacteristically unfunny "Shallow Hal" (2002). After the decidedly better "Stuck on You" (2003), the Farrelly Brothers delivered an unusually heartwarming romantic comedy with "Fever Pitch" (2005), which proved that the two had greater depth than previously thought. Though they were wide of the mark with the disappointing Ben Stiller comedy "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007), the legendary Farrelly Brothers nonetheless were able to illicit big laughs from the most uncomfortable of places.
