Dumb and Dumber To Review


Be warned: this is a movie meant only for hardcore fans of the 1994 original, and other moronic comedies in which plot, character and filmmaking coherence aren't important. If any fart joke makes you laugh, don't miss it. Everyone else probably already knows that they should avoid this movie, which is even more idiotic than it looks. Although for those forced to suffer through it, there's at least a strand of witty, absurd comedy faintly running through each scene.

After an utterly pointless 20-year practical joke, old buddies Harry and Lloyd (Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey) are once again a team, causing chaos everywhere they go due to their inability to understand pretty much anything that's happening around them. Now Harry needs a kidney transplant, just as he discovers that he fathered a child with Fraida (Kathleen Turner) nearly 23 years ago. So he and Lloyd head off to find his daughter Fanny (Rachel Melvin). She has been raised by a Nobel-winning scientist (Steve Tom) and his money-grabbing wife (Laurie Holden), who's plotting with the handyman (Rob Riggle) to steal his millions. All of them converge on an inventors' convention in El Paso, where Harry is mistaken as a genius, Lloyd falls in love with the wrong woman and everything climaxes in a vortex of mistaken identity and wacky slapstick.

While absolutely everything about this film is painfully stupid, filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly have learned from making solid comedies (like There's Something About Mary and Stuck on You), and the script has an underlying wit to it that hints at a much better movie screaming to get out. But the Farrellys simply leave everything as mindless as possible, using a strangely clunky directing style that feels cheap and underplanned. While there's a steady stream of amusing throwaway gags, the plot and characters never develop into anything engaging, mainly because both Carrey and Daniels are encouraged to overplay every moment so badly that we begin to wonder how anyone could think this was even vaguely funny.

It's a question that no doubt every 'Dumb and Dumber' fan has considered at some point; one of them had got to be dumber than the other, right? But which one? Jim Carrey and his co-star Jeff Daniels pondered the question ahead of the 'Dumb And Dumber To' release.

Jim Carrey plays Lloyd Christmas in the comedy; a character who was left heartbroken in the 1994 original movie and has remained to this day in a caring facility in a 20-year prank on his friend Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels), who himself has got his own problems this time round when he discovers he has a long lost daughter. Talking about whether or not the characters know that they're dumb, Carrey admits: 'I don't think they consider it for a second. There's no self-examination going on there at all. They're just selfish children. [Harry's] a little sweeter than my character, my character's really selfish.' And while co-director Peter Farrelly admits that they 'each think that the other one is dumb', the question is - who's the most intellectually challenged?

It's been a long time coming for the anticipated sequel to 1994's ridiculous comedy 'Dumb And Dumber', and it certainly feels it. Star Jim Carrey admits getting back into action was strangely nostalgic twenty years on.

Directors Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly aren't straying too far from the original premise with 'Dumb And Dumber To' by the looks of things, with everything from haircuts to cars staying appropriately the same for the Peter Pan style comedy figures. 'It was very much like an H.G. Wells time-travel thing the first day when I put on the old costume', Jim Carrey revealed, when cast and crew eventually decided on sticking to the original. 'We tried some new things in the wardrobe fittings but I kept saying, 'Nope, nope, nope.' Ultimately, I just wore the same thing. It felt right.'
