When you choose to title a sequel with a common grammatical error that is neither funny nor particularly clever, then you’re setting the bar pretty low. But the bar was already low for Dumb and Dumber To, so there’s not much farther that it could sink. Starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their roles as Lloyd and Harry from the first Dumb and Dumber, Dumb and Dumber To is pretty much set up to be…dumb.
Today sees the release of the first official image of our favorite idiots and it depicts them sitting on the back of a deer statue, making absurd faces. Not much to go on there, except that ten years appears to have done nothing to get these guys out of adolescence. The plot of Dumb and Dumber To also opens a path for all kinds of shenanigans, as the boys go on the road again so that Harry can find his illegitimate daughter and give her a kidney transplant. Brilliant. There’s no way this can go wrong.
The Farrelly Brothers are back to write and direct Dumb and Dumber To with their usual elegance, style, and aplomb. Although both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have proved themselves much better actors and comedians than the original film would suggest, it could be fun to see them doing some basic gross-out comedy again. Of course, the last time the Farrellys stepped behind the camera we got The Three Stooges, which I think we would all do well to forget.
Dumb and Dumber To will cavort its way onto the screen November 14, 2014.
