Look, I won't spoil the movie like other people have, but I will tell you that it is worth the wait. The Farrellys said Jim Carrey hadn't seen the original movie for something like 15 years before agreeing to doing the sequel, and I'm not surprised. What a complete and utter let- down this movie was. You will notice a lot of things from the first movie if you pay attention. It's the absolute worst kind of sequel: the kind that repeats old jokes to try and get a cheap cheer of nostalgia. Sorry, but no matter how many times you repeat it, using the word 'butthole' isn't really that amusing.
Well, I was pretty excited to see this one, knowing that no matter how bad it might turn out to be, these two still would never fail at making you laugh, now it's not as good as the first, but it sure does make you laugh, it's just unbelievable how dumb these two are, time will never heal how stupid they are, and they sure won't be getting better any time soon, they're still as dumb, still funny, and still as entertaining as they were in the first, but I don't know if it's just me or the fact that the first was just too good to beat, I was honestly expecting this one to be even more fun, but it wasn't, the first was better, but this one wasn't bad at all, I would go back to watch it again with a friend if I was asked to, you wouldn't get bored watching this, as everything these two do is a complete mess, it's worth the watch, and definitely worth the ticket. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Farrley Brothers' movies, or anyone who likes Jim Carrey. There were definitely some funny parts where I laughed, but the whole thing felt pretty. It's not even mildly amusing in the manner in which I expected a long-delayed sequel may be. If there is a reason to finally see a good comedy sequel, this is it. I have to let everyone know that this sequel is just as dumb and perfectly funny as the original. You find out everything as to why they waited 20 years.
Almost cartoon like in the way it was done. . Their are more than a few funny scenes, and the dialogue is always right-on. I also didn't particularly like the silliness. I mean, the Farrelly's have proved to be nothing more than perpetual 10-year-olds, and they manage one or two moments of contrived laughter. Storyline: It's been 20 years and Harry Dunn has found something out - he has a daughter! Lloyd Christmas, his equally dim-witted friend, takes one look at a picture of her, develops a crush, and insists the two track her down.

They think that the gas company is after them since they didn't pay their bill, but is actually the kidnappers of Mary Holly 's husband, who were supposed to pick up the money where she left it in the airport terminal. The film also lazily falls back on repeating some of the original film's plot points and, indeed, one-liners e. What ensues when Harry finally agrees is a bizarre encounter with an old lady and more hilarity because of their sheer stupidity. They've become purely sad parodies of their former selves. While the first was a brilliantly inspired bit of comedic stupidity, Dumb and Dumber To is just plain stupid. If it had been lazy and fallen back on repeating gags from the original film, fair enough; if it contained the same sweet-natured spirit of the original movie, then maybe that would have been its saving grace.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels team up as the not just odd, but strange, weird and mentally disabled couple. After losing both of their jobs on the same day, Lloyd Carrey , who retrieved a bag which a woman he drove to the airport leaves in the terminal, encourages his friend Harry to come with him to Aspen where the girl flew to. Clearly the filmmakers think the audience is as dumb as their leads. Twenty years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry's newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption. But it's still a good movie, especially if you were a fan of the original. It reminded me a little of the three stooges movie.
All the while, laziness and overt offensiveness abound, with jokes never reaching higher than the lowest of low hanging fruit. Those worries quickly dissipated, as To is a forced and aggressively unfunny gross-out comedy. In need of a new kidney and having learned that he has a long-lost daughter, dimwit Harry Dunne Jeff Daniels snaps his equally cretinous pal, Lloyd Christmas Jim Carrey , out of an apparent fugue state to accompany him on a journey to find her. Plot is not the movie's aim, and it doesn't need to be. Most of the bad stuff that happens to them is inadvertent, and often at the expense of trying to do a good deed e. This movie is not funny. It disappoints completely, like a desperate old rock singer trying to hit the same notes he used to, but consistently falling flat.
The key to the movie, I think, is that there's an underlying sweetness to the humor: Lloyd and Harry Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are never presented as malicious. Not perfect, but the chemistry is there and it's as mean as it was back then. Unfortunately the jokes are understandably irreverent, yet also socially inept and rarely successful. Instead, it's not only unfunny, it's egregiously nasty and vile, and when I left the theater I just immediately wanted to wash the taste out. I was pretty disappointed in this movie, and I'm not really sure why. I think the simplest way of summarizing the mistake here is that they jumped the shark from 'dumb' to 'willfully stupid.
We find our puerile protagonists older but none-the wiser, still getting in over their heads yet unwittingly finding their way through it. It's hard to find a Farrley's Brother which isn't funny, and this is even harder to classify as, 'not funny'. Worst of all is that Daniels' Harry and Carrey's Lloyd have completely lost the chemistry that once bound them.

He doesn't seem to remember the comic energy he imbued Lloyd with in the original film; instead, he turns Lloyd into an unlikable, borderline creepy manchild with overly exaggerated stupidity and mannerisms.
Lloyd trying to return the briefcase. Roger Ebert used to talk about this a lot in his reviews -- it's only funny if the character isn't aware of what he's doing. What ensues when Harry finally agrees is a bizarre encounter with an old lady and more hilarity because of their sheer stupidity. As a big fan of Dumb and Dumber, I went into Dumb and Dumber To trying not to let wistfulness paint the sequel too positively. And a few other surprises.
