Movie Info

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the title roles (though viewers may find themselves debating which is which) in this genially low-brow comedy. Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are two intellectually-challenged best friends who share an apartment so messy that gangsters aren't sure how to trash the place; the guys also have a certain problem (not difficult to understand) holding on to jobs. Lloyd is working as a limo driver in Rhode Island when he picks up a beautiful

Dumb and Dumber, which features Carrey and Jeff Daniels as nitwits traveling cross-country, is a frayed string of gags posing as a movie. Carrey, though, does literal-minded doofdom with peerless enthusiasm.

The wholeheartedness of this descent into crude and rude humor is so good-natured and precise that it's hard not to partake in the guilty pleasures of the exercise.

This is a long way from the social comedy of Jerry Lewis. The characters here are ultimately turned into punching bags or punch-line dispensers.

Given American cinema's current obsession with innocence and ignorance, at least this never romanticises its protagonists. They are genuinely, irredeemably, 100 per cent no-hopers.

A movie that fully lives up to its name, right down to an opening credit sequence rife with intentional misspellings and grammatical errors.

The Farrellys' knack for stupid, Three Stooges-esque comedy writ larger by an infusion of heart excels with the complementary screen teaming of manic Jim Carrey and consummate screen actor Jeff Daniels. [Blu-ray]

This gleefully lowbrow film is best enjoyed by the young, and by those who can still laugh at the passing of gas.

Gross to the max but very funny, this succeeds through energy, ingenuity and -- against all the odds -- the charm of its dopey leads.

Released before I started reviewing, but I would be remiss if I didn't say: it's a fine film. Had me buckling over in laughter, often, little plot, 100% pure stupid genius.

Audience Reviews for Dumb and Dumber

DonÔ(TM)t get me wrong, I absolutely love this film. I died laughing of it in the first viewing, and it nearly happened again when I revisited it. There are simply too many flaws that are unmissable and even a bit distracting here. The last few scenes, where the film begins to lose steam, have to be the biggest of all them. I understand this is supposed to be a bizarre, absurd comedy, and I know these scenes are meant to poke fun at crime films, but instead, it seems to become a more unexplained piece of that genre. With that said, this upon first sight is utterly hilarious, but it certainly does not improve with repeated viewings.
