Dumb and Dumber To Harry and Lloyd Dumb and Dumber To Gets November 2014 Release Date

Much like Harry and Lloyd’s spontaneous road trip from Providence to Aspen, the journey to a Dumb and Dumber sequel (we don’t include the lackluster prequel) was prolonged by setbacks and filled with uncertainty. However, with the film’s production finally underway and much of its cast secured, we can assure fans of the 1994 comedy hit that the Farrelly Brothers’ followup, titled Dumb and Dumber To, is really happening, and this week we learned that it will be hitting theaters almost exactly 20 years after its hilarious predecessor.

Universal Pictures announced this week that the film will release on November 14, 2014. While it’s the only major comedy opening that month (that we know of so far), competition will be stiff for the long-awaited sequel, as Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 are set to open the week prior.

However, even with some major tentpoles hitting multiplexes around the same time, Dumb and Dumber To should find an audience – one that has been looking forward to more of Harry and Lloyd’s misadventures for nearly two decades. Add in returning stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and the original’s helmers, the Farrelly Brothers, and Universal could have the formula for repeat success.

The main ingredients are certainly there, but several notable developments in recent months have added even more interest to the already anticipated project. Two months back, we learned that Oscar-nominee Kathleen Turner had joined the cast as Harry Dunne’s (Daniels) former flame and the mother of his long-lost daughter, while Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence – who is reportedly a huge fan of the original film – was confirmed to cameo as a younger version of Turner’s character. Also added to the ensemble around the same time were comic actor Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street), who is signed on to play twin characters, and TV actress Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead), who will portray the film’s main antagonist.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any updates on the script or the plot, but as we last heard, it will center on Harry and Lloyd’s quest to track down Harry’s daughter, who is in desperate need of a kidney transplant. Once again, the two will embark on what is sure to be another memorable road trip and we can safely assume there will be plenty of (hopefully hilarious) speed bumps along the way.

Carrey and Daniels in Dumb and Dumber Dumb and Dumber To Gets November 2014 Release Date

Of course, we won’t know if the returning creative team has struck lowbrow comedy gold again until we get a peek at a trailer, but Daniels has already teased that the sequel will top the funniest and raunchiest scenes from the first film. Considering he’s the one holding a script, we’ll have to take his word for the time being.

Are you excited to see Harry and Lloyd on the big screen next year? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I can’t wait to see these two back at it again!

  2. Heck no. They are stupid and nonsense at all!

    • ???

    • Huh?

    • This guy must be hoping for a role in part 3.

    • err, what?

    • HAHAHAHAHA Producers… new cast member right here

  3. I went and saw the original with my brother and a friend of his back in the day when we were 13-14, our cheeks hurt we laughed so hard, ….well except for the friend. Dude sat straight faced through the entire movie and told us it wasn’t funny once we left the theater. (Don’t know what ever happened to Guy, but he has to be a serial now, right?)

    Can’t wait to see this film. Dumb and Dumber is probably my happiest comedy movie experience. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are both still doing great work, so we might even just get another classic out of this. And even if not, I’m happy to revisit the characters.

    • Maybe that other guy had recently lost his pet bird to accidental decapitation.

      • +1

        • Werd.

  4. Ironically, the title of the film is bound to further confuse those people that don’t know the proper use of “to” and “too.” I wonder how many people already don’t get the joke.

    • You’re statement may seem presumptuous, but your totally right. People won’t catch the joke because its either way over there head or their to unobservant too pick up on it’s subtlety.

    • Dumb and Dumber to…to what? What are they talking about?!

      • Dumb and Dumber To as in “Two” without the ‘w’.

  5. “we leaned” we learned? you mean?

  6. Being a huge Jim Carrey fan and the fact that I loved the original, I’m really looking forward to this one. Though, I fear both Daniels and Carrey have gotten too old for this kind of movie. Let’s hope I’m wrong.

  7. Very excited! I loved the original.

  8. I really hope it won’t be a R rated comedy. It’s really not that funny to hear the f-word between each word the actor says. Plus it would be out of character. Just keep the same goofy feel like the first one.

  9. happy to see these goof balls again LOL

  10. OMG, finally I can die happy! After watching the movie, that is!

  11. My friend and I went to see the movie, but got there late and had to sit in the front row. Didn’t matter. We laughed our heads off. He actually started laughing so hard he was choking on his popcorn and drink, and crawled up the aisle on hands and feet to “escape” so he could stop laughing and maybe stop coughing. One of the funniest things I have ever seen.

  12. finally 20 years later – the first one was my favorite of all times – I hope the second sequel will be as good even better than the first one. I hope there will be more toilet scenes with lots of gas and broken toilets.
