Are The Farrelly Brothers The M. Night Shyamalan Of Comedy?
Let’s ruin the suspense: yes. Note the top of the poster for Hall Pass, which shows the boys still coasting on the fumes of their decade-old smash hit, just like Night. And in both cases, each movie since has been a plot point in their swift, steady descent into crapitude. The parallel is nearly perfect and downright spooky. Check it out:
The Sixth Sense  —->     There’s Something About Mary Unbreakable ——>            Me Myself and Irene Signs  ——>                      Shallow Hal The Village ——>              Stuck On You*                                        Lady in the Water —>       Fever Pitch  The Happening  ——>     The Heartbreak Kid The Last Airbender —>    Hall Pass
*Confession / fly in ointment: we thought Stuck On You was kinda charming.
