‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Trailer: Carrey & Daniels Try to Reclaim the Funny

Published 11 months ago by , Updated June 11th, 2014 at 8:41 am,

It’s almost hard to believe that the trailer above finally exists, but Dumb and Dumber To is indeed here. The sequel brings back franchise icons Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey as Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas – with Dumb and Dumber directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly also back to direct.

Keeping things in real-time format, we catch up with Harry and Lloyd twenty years after the events of the first installment, as the pair learn that Harry has a daughter – whom Lloyd just happens to be infatuated with. (The full synopsis is a bit more complicated – but we’ll wait for the marketing to reveal that in full.) Whatever the true motivation, another road trip in the shaggin wagon ensues thereafter, with hilarity (hopefully) in tow.

Early reactions to Dumb and Dumber To have almost universally claimed that the magic is indeed recaptured – with particular note that this is something of a comeback for Jim Carrey. This trailer doesn’t necessarily evidence the former, but there are hints that the latter part could indeed be true.

Carrey is, admittedly, facing an uphill battle due to some offscreen political controversy, but a Dumb and Dumber movie should (transcend?) all of that and be enjoyed for what it is: good, dumb, fun. The film also stars Laurie Holden (Walking Dead), Rob Riggle (22 Jump Street), and Kathleen Turner.

  1. I worked on this film and the script is amazing. Naysayers gonna naysay. Oh and keep in mind that actors age too. I knew that would be an issue for all the haters out there.

    • Hope you’re not lying.

    • “I worked on this film”

      Which would make you biased. 😉

      • Good point, money IS involved :p

        • Ah, if true, the guy probably already got paid, and I doubt that he is going to get a percentage of the box office, so money is not likely involved.

  2. I really hope this isn’t going to be a typical modern day sequel that feels like it has to make references to Facebook and Twitter for the sake of looking “modern” and appease the existence of the current generation, while completely lacking in one what made the original a classic. The only thing I don’t remember making a big deal out of social media was Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and that was amazing. I’m also hoping they don’t just do what Dumb and Dumberer did and make them both both retarded out of laziness to write a decent script. Judging by the trailer I’m guessing they won’t do that but that last scene just made me cringe, it looks like it’s pulling a Seth McFarlane and trying to be sick as possible. The original wasn’t that sick. The toilet scene, parrot scene, Lloyd’s fantasy (including the restaurant bit), they were stupid but they didn’t exactly make you cringe and go “That’s grim”.

    So yeah if they avoided those would-be mistakes I’m happy.

    • I suppose the obvious question would be “why?” Hardly matters though. Beautiful cat you have there.

  3. That trailer was hilarious! They are both on point with their original characters. Can’t wait.

    • Sure you’re not thinking of Matthew Broderick ? I know Ben Stiller is in The Cable Guy but i don’t recall them(Jim Carrey & Ben Stiller) doing a scene together. It has been awhile since i seen it so i could be wrong.

      • Ben Stiller actually directed that film, as well as had a small cameo in it.

  4. Maybe not the best of trailers but I for one have some hope for the movie, can’t wait to see this :)

  5. Actually looking forward to seeing a Jim Carrey movie again.
