Out of Lloyd and Harry, who is 'dumb' and who is 'dumber'?
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.

The 58-year-old claimed he was "gonna party 'til dawn and then I'm gonna get on a plane and go to Atlanta and start shooting 'Dumb and Dumber 2."
It prompted several questions about the anticipated sequel, titled Dumb & Dumber To, which is now finally on track after several delays. "The intellectual free-fall from Will McAvoy to Harry Dunne ... imagine if you will," joked Daniels about his not-so-smart Dumb and Dumber character.
