This gross-out comedy was the Farrelly's follow up to Dumb & Dumber, and though it didn't reap the box office takings of its predecessor, it's still every bit as funny (if you can take it), poking fun at the Amish community as well as Redneck America.
Woody Harrelson stars as Roy Munson, a once professional bowler with a wicked arm, but after losing it in an accident he turns into an alcoholic hustler.
He takes a talented Amish bowler (Randy Quaid) under his wing, and with the help of a beautiful gangster's moll (Angel), they journey to Vegas to participate in the annual competition.
Some of the humour is, of course, in the worst possible taste, but a talented cast make it much more than your average toilet comedy, especially Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray and their terrible comb-overs
