Overview

Based on a novel by Peter Farrelly, published in 1988 before he became famous as a writer and director of such films as Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, and There's Something About Mary, Outside Providence is a coming-of-age story set in the 1970s. Timothy Dunphy Shawn Hatosy, known as Dunph to his friends and Dildo to others, is a high school burn-out with a gift for getting into trouble; it doesn't help that his best friend is named Drugs Delaney Jon Abrahams, and it somehow makes sense that Dunph's pet would be a three-legged dog with one eye. Dunph's father Alec Baldwin is convinced his son is on the fast track to Palookaville, so when Timothy gets in a wreck with a police car, his dad pulls a few strings and enrolls him in a private prep school. Dunph quickly learns the biggest difference between his old friends at home and his new classmates: rich kids have money, and money buys privilege. They can buy drugs from expensive dealers who won't fink on them, and pay for abortions when their girlfriends get unexpectedly pregnant, instead of having to get married. Dunph doesn't entirely fit into a school full of rich kids, but when he falls in love with Jane Weston Amy Smart, he's determined to win her heart. Peter Farrelly adapted his novel with the help of his brother and screenwriting partner Bobby Farrelly and director Michael Corrente, whose previous credits include the film version of David Mamet's American Buffalo.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Adam Goldberg
Based on the novel by Peter Farrelly, Outside Providence combines the patented Farrelly brand of edgy humor with a gentle and surprisingly effective coming-of-age tale. Those expecting a Dumb and Dumber idiot-fest or a vulgar opus like There's Something About Mary may be disappointed with this effort. Director Michael Corrente and the Farrelly brothers have crafted a more saccharine and poignant story that does not rely on their trademark bathroom humor. The strength of Outside Providence comes from the assortment of vivid characters that are always treated with sympathy and humor. Alec Baldwin plays against type and gives one of the most memorable performances of his career. Baldwin skillfully shows that beneath the crude facade of his character lies a damaged man that loves his children with all his heart. The low-budget effort does tend to drag, however, and often seems like a pointless series of marijuana-smoking episodes. The narrative also loses considerable steam when the death of a minor character is made into a major melodramatic moment, but the delicate writing and wonderful acting still keep the story moving. Outside Providence is a far cry from the typical assortment of sticky Farrelly gags; it's a bittersweet and realistic tale adapted from brother Peter's gritty 1988 comic novel.
