As a teen in the 90s I remember this movie very fondly when it came out. It was a ground breaking comedy at the time. This kind of humor has become the norm and been built upon so it doesn't seem as special now but it was really something when it came out.
Stiller is great as the all too familiar tough luck nice guy and Diaz is adorable.
The ensemble cast sing-a-long to "Build me up buttercup" at the end was great. The Farrelly brothers never topped this one, in my opinion, as within the silliness and gross out humor the tortured lost love theme rang true to lots of people.
Watchable but definitely nothing special!
Eh. Asides from the main parts everyone remembers, it's not as funny as you think.
