There's Something About Mary (1998)

“There’s Something About Mary” was and is one of the best comic movies ever made! I have too many favorite scenes to choose one, but if I must. Ben Stiller plays Ted, a guy who has loved Mary since high school. Ted has come to take Mary to the prom. He goes to the bathroom and has an accident with his zipper. Painful for Ted, but funny as hell for us!

Our recipe for There’s Something About Scallops was inspired by “There’s Something About Mary.” Scallops are a delicacy from the ocean with it's beautiful outer shell. It’s one of those things you like, but can’t really describe why. Cameron Diaz played Mary, who has those qualities. A beautiful girl, but just a little off kilter. You know you like her, but you don’t know why. Our scallops recipe is like Mary, because there’s something about Mary and scallops!
