Dumb and Dumber To

November 14, 2014

Rachel Melvin and Jim Carrey in DUMB AND DUMBER TO.

Directed by: Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly

Written by: Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly, John Morris, Bennett Yellin

Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Kathleen Turner

Rating: PG-13 (for crude and sexual humor, partial nudity, language and some drug references)

Running Time: 110 minutes

The sequel to the 1994 film, DUMB AND DUMBER, reunites Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, two idiots with good intentions, but very little common sense—they are today’s Three Stooges! Carrey and Daniels were fine in the original when they were in their 30s playing two morons for laughs, but now in their 50s (Daniels turns 60 in February!) it comes off as a bit sad. This would have been a better film if it had been made a few years after the original, not twenty. But the writing/directing team of Bobby and Peter Farrelly still know how to load up the laughs (with a few groans) in this franchise.

Grade: B
