Quick bites Lyndall Crisp’s TV tips
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.
