Dumb and Dumber (1994) Film Review


I’ve been looking over the films I’ve reviewed and wondering what my opinions say about me. There are so many films that seem to be artistically acclaimed, telling deep and meaningful stories and bringing a lot to the world, yet I find them boring or a waste of time. And then something like this; a very stupid, low-brow, slapstick comedy with plenty of poo and fart jokes, and I love it. Whatever it says about me; I don’t care.

Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are two men with extremely low intellects who keep each other entertained and somehow make their way through life. They find a briefcase that they need to return to Mary (Lauren Holly) and so take a road trip across the country.

I love it. It’s stupid and ridiculous and I just totally love it. Though I’ve never attempted the prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry met Lloyd (not by the same directors, writers or with the same actors) and I am vaguely dreading the sequel Dumb and Dumber To  -due in our cinemas 2014.
