Trivia: There's Something About Mary
  • Enforced Method Acting: Ben Stiller's stretcher really was dropped as he was taken to the ambulance.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Keith David, is that you?
    • Richard Jenkins as Ted's therapist
    • Sarah Silverman as one of Mary's friends
    • Jeffrey Tambor as Healy's contact Sully.
    • British fans will recognize comedian Lee Evans as Tucker/Norm.
  • Star-Making Role: Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller became bankable leads after the runaway success of this film.
  • What Could Have Been: The film's original ending had Ted getting hit by a bus right after Mary chooses him over her other suitors (basically turning the film into a Shoot the Shaggy Dog story). The Farrelly Brothers decided this would too dark of a way to end the film, so they went with a more traditional happy ending.
