Synopsis


Dumb and Dumber
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the title roles (though viewers may find themselves debating which is which) in this genially low-brow comedy. Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are two intellectually-challenged best friends who share an apartment so messy that gangsters aren't sure how to trash the place; the guys also have a certain problem (not difficult to understand) holding on to jobs. Lloyd is working as a limo driver in Rhode Island when he picks up a beautiful and wealthy woman named Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) who is being taken to the airport. Lloyd immediately falls head over heels in love with Mary, and when she leaves a briefcase at the airport, he's determined to return it in hopes of impressing her. Lloyd isn't able to get aboard Mary's flight (though not for lack of trying). Harry has a van decorated to look like a dog (to promote his failing dog-grooming business), and the pair hop in the Poochmobile to find Mary in Aspen. What Lloyd and Harry don't know is that the briefcase is full of money, which Mary deliberately left at the airport as a ransom payment to save the life of her kidnapped husband. Incidentally, Lloyd's chipped front tooth happens to be real; while Jim Carrey had the injured tooth capped many years ago, he thought a broken smile would suit Lloyd's character and had the cap removed for the duration of filming. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Possibly the funniest movie ever

    Posted

    Certainly the Farrelly brothers' funniest movie (although There's Something About Mary always gets more praise) and one of the funniest movies ever made, this is Jim Carrey's greatest performance. It sounds like a joke but Jim Carrey should have been nominated for and Oscar for his role in Dumb and Dumber. If the Best Actor Oscar is supposed to be for the person who is most convincing in his role and played that role like nobody else could have done it then he definitely deserved it. He is truly believable as Lloyd Christmas, and you would think Jeff Daniels would have trouble keeping up with him but he is never really overshadowed in this movie. I'm not really sure how much the two improvised in this movie but it has some of the funniest movie lines ever said and you'll find yourself quoting this movie constantly.

    Dumb and Dumber is the title catapaulted the Ferrelly brothers careers. While partly slapstick comedy, its all done in line that makes sense for these characters/world. Some may argue that it hasnt aged well, and to some degree that may be true. This film was for every grown up in the 90's, but today it's targeted audience may be a bit more narrow. Perhaps the Ferrelly brothers didn't lose their touch as maybe everyone just grew up. I loved this movie in it's day. So as to not base on nostalgia, I must assert that this isn't for everyone. The story and events are very continuant. The comedy though, isn't as deep as some folks may like their content to be.

    High end laughs for a slapstick movie

    Jeff Daniels character depth and Jim Carry Wacky schtick make for plenty of laughs. Jeff Daniels is a superlative subtle emotive counterbalance to Jim Carry's Jerry-Lewis-style slapstick. The script has holes that we can overlook with the help of lovely Lauren Holly who plays, with clever nuance, mostly straight. The script presents many improbable coincidences as required for the genre yet occasionally we empathize with the hapless dummies who after all have honorable intentions.

    Theatrical Version Still Better

    Jim Carrey gives the best performance of his career in my opinion, and Jeff Daniels is equally as funny, in this comedic tale about two not so bright guys traveling cross country to return a suspicious briefcase to its rightful owner. This unrated version adds some extra, and somewhat raunchy footage to the film, but I still find the theatrical release better. Nonetheless, die hard fans will want to check this one out just for the bonus features that weren't available on the original dvd.

    Great, awesome, hilarious, outstanding, etc. This is absolutely one of my favorite movies. It has tons of scenes and one-liners to keep you entertained. And, you'll probably be using some of the movie's famous one-liners for a few days. With this movie, and with some of the other comedies of the nineties, I suggest that you relax, let down your guard, and enjoy some of the simple humor this movie has to offer.

    A Classic Comedy - with Extras

    Dumb and Dumber is a classic comedy, but the unrated version leaves a bit to desire. The additional footage was not particularly interesting and made the film seem much longer than the actual running time. It is wonderful to have the film on Blu-ray, but it would have been nice if it included both the theatrical and the unrated releases.

    The movie was pretty good the first time I saw it. Definitely check your brain at the door kind of movie. Unfortunately, the DVD was skipping on two different DVD players. We took it into the store to exchange, but none could be found. The great news is that Best Buy then refunded on the DVD.... Just a little bad luck on this one!

    Dumb and Dumber is simply one of the funniest movies ever made. Definitely in my top 10 comedies. It's just stupid humor that does anything to make you laugh. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are perfectly cast and really make these characters memorable.
