Robert Farrelly

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 became one of their biggest box office hits. Following the hilarious "Kingpin" (1996), they crossed the romantic comedy with their trademark gross-out humor for "There's Something About Mary" (1998), a non-stop laugh-fest that was also a huge hit both home and abroad. After "Stuck on You" (2003), the Farrelly Brothers delivered an unusually heartwarming romantic comedy with "Fever Pitch" (2005), which proved that the two could provide depth as well as humor.
