Farrelly, Robert Leo Jr.
1958 - Born on June 17th in Cumberland, Rhode Island. American director, producer and screenwriter.
1994 - With Bobby serving as co-producer and co-writer, Dumb and Dumber became a blockbuster hit, confirming Jim Carrey's comic superstar status and introducing movie audiences to the Farrelly mix of gleeful vulgarity and romantic sweetness.
1996 - Bobby joined Peter as co-director as on their next effort, the less popular Amish bowling opus Kingpin.
1998 - The Farrellys truly came into their own as outré artistes with their third film, There's Something About Mary.
1999 - The Farrellys co-scripted and produced the screen adaptation of Peter's first novel, the mellower coming of age story Outside Providence.
2000 - Bobby and Peter returned to their signature style, however, with the Jim Carrey split-personality vehicle, Me, Myself & Irene.
