|Outside Providence: Wednesday,
September 1, 1999
Written by one of the Farrley brothers, the duo that directed There's Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber, comes the comedy Outside Providence. Timothy Dunphy, played by Shawn Hatosy, comes from a broken home, has no future and doesn't care much about school. To top it all of, his friends are all a bunch of losers. Wait a minute. Is this the plot or my life story? After Dunphy crashes into a parked police car, his father, played by Alec Baldwin, sends him off to a prep school. Miramax has been advertising this movie as being as raunchy as There's Something about Mary, but audiences expecting this will be disappointed, since it is more about growth and understanding. The critics are divided half are saying it's funny and clever while the other half are saying they've seen it all before.
