It’s not often that an entire movie succeeds due to one scene, but the infamous sperm hair gel gag in There’s Something About Mary is easily the most remembered moment from the flick. After mistaking this protein-packed glob of paternity paste on Ted Stroehmann’s (Ben Stiller) ear for hair product, Mary Jensen (Cameron Diaz) quickly runs it through her blonde locks to look stylish for dinner.
Unbeknownst to her, she’s left with what people have affectionately termed a “cumlick,” causing her bangs to stand straight up. It’s a disgusting piece of cinema that also happens to be a great sight gag from the Farrelly Brothers, who used to be the masters of such humor. This scene also taught us never to trust any globule hanging off a man’s body.
