Bobby Farrelly

Director

“It's not just putting people with disabilities in the movies - it's putting them in and letting them be a wide range of characters. Some of them are funny, some of them are not, some of them are nice, some of them are jerks. They're just like everybody else. If a guy came up to us and he was physically disabled or something and he was mad at us for something we did, it would kill us. Me or Pete - it would kill us.”

 

Biography

Robert Leo “Bobby” Farrelly, Jr. (born June 17, 1958) is an American film director, screenwriter and producer.

Farrelly was born in Cumberland, Rhode Island, the son of Mariann, a nurse practitioner, and Robert Leo Farrelly, a doctor. He is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He has been married to his wife Nancy since 1990. They have 2 children and a bulldog.

Bobby and his brother Peter Farrelly are known as Farrelly Brothers. They have written, directed, and produced several comedy films (often involving scenes intended as “gross-out” humor) including There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, Shallow Hal, Me, Myself and Irene and Stuck on You. They also conceived the Seinfeld episode “The Virgin” (4.10). —Wikipedia
