Audience Reviews for Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd

  • Nov 21, 2014
    The stupidity continues as the comedy goes old school in the prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. Set in their carefree high school days in 1986, Harry and Lloyd become the unwitting pawns of a corrupt principle who's attempting to embezzle state funds by creating a fake "Special Needs" class. Featuring Eric Christian Olsen, Rachel Nichols, Eugene Levy, and Shia LaBeouf, the casting is pretty good; Olsen in particular does a great job at emulating Jim Carrey's performance from the original. And the comedy is well-written, staying true to the first film and offering several homages. Still, the film tries a little too hard to be like the original and doesn't quite have the same spirit. Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd is fun and entertaining, but it plays things kind of safe and sticks to a standard high school comedy formula.

    This prequel literally gets dumb and dumber with almost no laughs. Stick to the original with Jim Carrey.

    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.
