In general, the stars were wrong: Farrelly got a successful start (the film grossed nearly $ 250 million and was warmly received by critics), and Carrie’s career, this tape has played a significant role. Then and directors, and the actor was a good decade, so good, that shot in the beginning of zero prequel to the “stupid” has passed without their participation.
