Birth name Peter John FarrellyNationality USABirth 17 december 1956Peter John Farrelly (born December 17, 1956) and Robert Leo "Bobby" Farrelly, Jr. (born June 17, 1958), professionally known as the Farrelly brothers, are American screenwriters and directors.

They have made eleven films to date, including There's Something About Mary; Dumb and Dumber; Kingpin; Hall Pass; Me, Myself & Irene; Shallow Hal; Stuck on You; Osmosis Jones; Fever Pitch (also known as The Perfect Catch outside of America), the 2007 remake of The Heartbreak Kid, and The Three Stooges.
The brothers were raised in Cumberland, Rhode Island, and are of Irish descent. Some of their films have been at least partially set in their home state of Rhode Island, such as There's Something About Mary. Sports play a large part in their films and they have often cast sports stars for cameo appearances in their films (i.e. Brett Favre in There's Something About Mary). The brothers have been praised and critiqued for the way they use the subject of disability in their films. Peter Farrelly has commented: "The problem is not that we look down on these people, but rather that we look up at them and feel that they are better than us.... we revere them."—Peter Farrelly, "Ability Magazine: Farrelly Brothers". Retrieved 2012-04-06.
They frequently depict able-bodied people as stupid (Dumb and Dumber) while disabled people are either more aspirational (Shallow Hal, Stuck on You) or gifted (Me, Myself & Irene). They use slapstick and toilet humor, often with a soundtrack of upbeat, light rock songs. Their films often contain flashback scenes that show how a character was affected by a traumatic event. Peter Farrelly has published books including Outside Providence and The Comedy Writer. The brothers' production company Conundrum Entertainment was producing the comedy series Unhitched on FOX; the series was, however, cancelled.
In 2011, the brothers filmed The Three Stooges as the film's directors and producers. The film stars Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe Howard, Sean Hayes as Larry Fine, and Will Sasso as Curly Howard, and was released on April 13, 2012.
Ils commencent leur carrière en 1990 en devenant scénaristes de la série télévisée Seinfeld. En 1994, ils écrivent et réalisent leur premier film, Dumb and Dumber, qui devient culte. Le film réunit Jim Carrey et Jeff Daniels. Ils récidivent en 1998 avec Mary à tout prix, leur plus grand succès public, mettant en scène Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz et Matt Dillon. L'année suivante ils retrouvent Jim Carrey pour Fous d'Irène (1999).
Ils continuent les comédies originales avec L'Amour extra-large (2001), avec Jack Black et Gwyneth Paltrow, ou encore Deux en un (2003), où Matt Damon et Greg Kinnear incarnent des frères siamois.
En 2014, ils réalisent Dumb and Dumber De, suite de leur premier film, qui outre le duo Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels, réunit également à l'écran Laurie Holden et Kathleen Turner.
