    A PETER SMITH REVIEW

    The movie titled "THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY" is one of me and my older brother's favorite movies. My most favorite songs that I liked were "EVERYTHING SHINES" , "THERE"S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY" , "BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP" , & "HISTORY REPEATING". During Christmas Break , my aunt loaned her copy of the movie to me , & my brother.
