The plot, of course, is merely an excuse for an endless series of gags, and the percentage of them that score is fairly high.

From the puns to the slapstick to the toilet, Dumb and Dumber is performed at such a high level that it transcends many of its influences.

Easily one of the funniest (and most quotable) movies ever made...

The caviar of low-brow, gross-out comedy.

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]

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.

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

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.

April 28, 2008
Gross to the max but very funny, this succeeds through energy, ingenuity and -- against all the odds -- the charm of its dopey leads.

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.

Well titled and, for its purpose, a total success.

Gone are the days of John Belushi, where rudeness was raised to an art form.

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.

we can see a lot of these laughs coming, and they don't hold much staying power

The 'limo'driver' line made the rest of the movie worth the trouble.
