Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are back, as the bumbling but lovable knuckleheads Harry and Lloyd, in ‘Dumb and Dumber To’. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the movie’s 0fficial trailer premiered, and it looks rather funny.
Dumb and Dumber To, takes place 20 years after the first movie, as the two friends set out to find Harry’s daughter. Peter and Bobby Farrelly are back as directors, and the film is set to hit theaters on November of this year.
The first film, Dumb and Dumber, premiered on December 16, 1994, and was a commercial success, earning $247 million world-wide. The movie launched Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s careers, and developed quite the cult following. A prequel (Dumbe and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd), was released in 2003, but the Farrelly brothers did not direct, and the movie bombed at the box office.
Check out the Trailer below, and tell me what you think in the comments section.
This is just my opinion, but other than the opening gag, this movie looks like a gigantic piece of hot garbage. I absolutely loved the first movie, and having just recently watched it, last week, I still laugh at all the moronic shenanigans that Harry and Lloyd get into.
However, that kind of comedy, that was so popular in the 90’s, doesn’t seem to fit in 2014. Just look at Adam Sandler’s attempts at movies. Sandler hasn’t been funny since Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison…again, 90’s movies.
I sincerely hope that Dumb and Dumber To is a well made, funny movie, but I am going to be cautiously optimistic until November, when we will really see if Carrey and Daniels still has what it takes to pull off the “Fart jokes” that made the first movie so great.
