Audience Reviews for Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd


You could say that this film is disgraceful to the original all you want, but quite honestly, it is so outlandish that you may just wind up loving it for all the wrong reasons. Rehashing about half of the gags from the first film, "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd" is a pretty bland comedy. The replacements/younger versions of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels do their best at capturing the spirit of the characters, but with such a thin plot, nothing really shines in this film. How dumb the actors try to make themselves is sad enough and I can't get enough of it. I have a soft spot for how bad this prequel is, and though it's rewatchablility is zero to none, I would still recommend this film to people who like dumb comedies. A terrible film in every sense of the word, but still a blast to watch.

Hopefully if Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels return as a duo for a sequel to be released (if it does) we'll be able to forget this awful tragedy of cinema.

Prequel to Dumb & Dumber is an incredibly bad attempt at outdoing the original. Where to begin? The acting is terrible, the jokes are unoriginal, the script is terrible. This film one of the worst films that I have ever seen, and it doesn't deliver anything funny or amusing. The film instead of being funny is irritating with it's stupid attempt at "good" comedy which of course fails fails on all levels. If you're lucky you'll stay away from this film. If you're unlucky, you can warn fans of Dumb & Dumber how bad this prequel is. This film scrapes the bottom of the barrel and goes further still. All the actors here for exception of Luis Guzman suck. I'm actually surprised that Guzman acted in this. Dumb & DUmberer is actually a fairly great title for this film because it certainly is dumberer and makes the viewer feel dumberer for having watched it. Thnere's nothing great about this film, it's a dreadful train wreck of a movie that you wished you hadn't seen in the first place. The film is thebtype of movie that you wish could be unmade and whipped off the face of the earth. Dumb & Dumberer is nothing but a sorry piece of crap prequel thatjoins a few other films that filmmakers have tried to cash in on its far superior counterpart. Of course I'm refereing to films like Slap Shot 2, 3, Sandlot 2,3 and Caddyshack 2. All of these films failed to capture what made the originals so great. Now Dumb & Dumberer is among those sad, mediocre titles as one of the worst prequel/ sequel ever made.
