There’s Something About Mary location: Cleaning the pipes: Cardozo Hotel, Ocean Drive, Miami Beach
All the Farrellys’ trademark grossness is here, but blended with bouncy good humour, giving the brothers their biggest commercial success to date.
Part of the movie was shot in the Farrellys’ native Rhode Island, but it’s mostly set against the candy-coloured backdrop of Miami Beach.
The ‘high school’, where nerdy Ted Stroehmann (Ben Stiller) doesn’t quite make it to the prom with Mary (Cameron Diaz), is Plantation City Hall, 400 Northwest 73rd Avenue at NW 5th Street, in Plantation, a few miles west of Fort Lauderdale.
There’s Something About Mary location: Mary takes Pat to the architecture exhibition: Miami Dade Cultural Center, West Flagler Street, downtown Miami
Mary takes faker Pat Healy to an architecture exhibition at the Center for the Fine Arts, in the Miami Dade Cultural Center, 101 West Flagler Street, downtown Miami.
There’s Something About Mary location: Ted meets Mary at her office: Brickell Park, downtown Miami
Mary’s office, where Ted meets up with her thirteen years after his little accident, is on the downtown Miami waterfront at Brickell Park, overlooking the Brickell Key Causeway.
Ted’s Miami hotel, where he unwittingly provides Mary with nature’s own hair gel after ‘cleaning the pipes’, is the Cardozo Hotel, 1300 Ocean Drive at 14th Street. This art deco gem can also be seen in Frank Capra’s 1959 A Hole In The Head.
The waterside bar, where Healy reports back to Ted, though, can be found in Providence, Rhode Island. It’s The Hot Club, 575 South Water Street off Bridge Street.
