    It's not dumb-good. It's dumb-stupid.

    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    The movie is dedicated, in a nice touch, to early Farrelly fan Gene Siskel. And Gene was right: The Farrellys are often very funny filmmakers. .

    Every instance of gleeful bad taste is timed and positioned for maximum, liberating laugh value.

The Farrellys strike again; avoid this awful film.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that black people, dwarfs, an albino, and a nursing mother are all vehicles for crass jokes in Me, Myself, and Irene. There are many mature themes: infidelity, divorce, police corruption, murder, and a serious bipolar disorder. There are near-constant spewings of extreme, gratuitous profanity, much of it sex-related. Even a skip-roping little girl screams "f--k off." Just about every character in every scene behaves questionably. There are graphic discussions about sex, with much waving around of a sex toy. A few nude rears (one with a chicken sticking out of it) and a mostly nude breast. A lot of punching and shooting. Hank insults and terrorizes people, causes bodily harm, and destroys property. Charlie repeatedly shoots a cow that appears near dead. Irene's ex-boyfriend shoots Charlie's thumb.

  • Families can talk about the appeal of this movie and the whole gross-out genre. Do you think these extremely flawed characters are funny?
  • Were there parts of the film you found more offensive than funny? Would you seek out other movies like this or stick to lighter comedy fare?
