As the film progresses ... the hilarity does not escalate along with the outrageousness.

Perhaps the best thing that can come out of "Dumbbells" is that it will provide hope to young filmmakers who have a real voice and vision: You too can get distribution.

Dumb and dumber doesn't quite describe the awfulness of this movie. How about dumbest?

[A] crude, exhaustingly inane comedy ...

Dumbbells manages to be pleasant and largely inoffensive despite early indications that it might turn into a T&A-fest.

Audience Reviews for Dumbbells

I haven't laughed this hard at a movie in a long time. Thank you, Dumbbells. Once again it never ceases to amaze me how critics can have it so wrong. This movie has a great ensemble cast with two likeable leads and lots of gorgeous girls. It also has a ton of heart. It reminded me of the some of the classic comedies from the 80s and 90s. There are some hilarious one-liners. It's kind of like Office Space in the gym. Big thumbs up from me!
