Quick bites Lyn­dall Crisp’s TV tips

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Contents - Lyn­dall Crisp

Satur­day, 8.30pm, Eleven The Amer­i­can Film In­sti­tute voted this 1998 ro­man­tic com­edy 27th on a list of the 20th cen­tury’s fun­ni­est movies. It’s the story of Ted (Ben Stiller) who hires pri­vate eye Pat (Matt Dil­lon) to find Mary (Cameron Diaz won mul­ti­ple awards for her per­for­mance), who he took on a date years be­fore. It’s a bizarre, of­ten puerile, plot with lots of ly­ing and cheat­ing — and that fa­mous scene when Mary re­lieves Ted of the ‘‘ hair gel’’ hang­ing from his ear and runs it through her own hair. A bit of fun on a Satur­day night if you’re stuck at home.
