Farrelly Brothers developing 'Dumb & Dumber' sequel with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels

Just when you thought those folks in Hollywood couldn’t get any dumber, they go and do something like this … and totally redeem themselves! Yes, dumb-comedy fans, EW has confirmed that Peter and Bobby Farrelly are planning to direct a sequel to their classic, brilliantly stupid 1994 comedy Dumb & Dumber. (Deadline first reported the news.) Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels would reprise their roles as Harry and Lloyd, a couple of friends with a couple of dozen brain cells between them. (Really, how dumb would it be to try to cast anyone else?)

Sean Anders and John Morris, who wrote Carrey’s recent family film Mr. Popper’s Penguins and last year’s Hot Tub Time Machine, are writing the script, and the Farrellys are planning to start work on the film after they finish their current feature, The Three Stooges. A Dumb & Dumber prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, was released in 2003, but neither the Farrellys nor Carrey and Daniels had any involvement in it.

    Good lord, the prequel was HORRENDOUS. I’m glad that, for the sequel, they’re bringing back Carrey and Daniels, and I’m glad the Farrelly’s will direct. Hopefully this won’t be a monumental suckfest like “Dumb and Dumberer” was…

    • VeryBadDay

      Dumb and Dumberer was putrid garbage!

  • McProphet

    This just shows how desperate Carrey, Daniels and the Farellys are for a hit. The first one was mildly amusing, but will it really be as a fun watching 50-year olds pull off the same antics? If I wanted to watch a comedy about two old idiots attempt to pull off unnecessarily stupid madcaps, I’d rent The Bucket List.

    • abadstroller

      I don’t want to be cynical (who me?), but it sounds like a desperate money grab. “D&D” was pretty much horrifying the first time around, barely tolerable. This next one should be absolutely excruciating….

      • Brett

        Carrey fans have been waiting for him to go back to slapstick, physical comedy for 15 years. It’s how he got famous and it’s what he is best at. What would you people prefer he do? Another kids movie?

        Jim Carry on Oprah was 2 of the funniest hours of my life, I’m sure he can find a way to make this funny, even if the movie isn’t that great.

      • Dustin

        Here’s and idea….if it going to be so horrifying, don’t watch it, and don’t complain about it ok. Big Gulps!

        Run: 1.16km, 1.32km, 1.45kmGoats: Better running form, celtmope Disney coast-to-coast challenge with my wife, not only celtmope but have fun doing a half ironman in July and a full one in Nov of next year. Be a better father and husband.

      This movie is a comedy classic. To each their own… and today…people are so unable to grasp good humor Im sure some blown them up movie will beat it out…however, this is one of the funniest movies ever. THEY did not have any involvement in the other prequels, etc. Can you read? This movie is in the same class as “Planes, trains and automobiles” and Christmas vacation. If you dont think any of these are absolutely great…you have no place in society. Just saying.

        Only finished 2 roudns but still finding my dbl unders. I think I did way more jumping rope than needed. Strength wise only did 45lbs, but very strict PU’s. Came down to the run (swim tomorrow), did 6x 1:38. Pretty happy with the results, considering I just started doing this.

    • VeryBadDay

      @McProphet You make me sick! Dumb and Dumber was one of the greatest comedies of all time. I bet you think Andy Samberg is funny. You mouth breathing ape. Big Gulp huh? Welp see ya later!

    • McNonProphet

      So McProphet, you go out of your way to read and comment on a movie that you don’t like? That would be like me walking into an Aeropostale store just to tell the workers there that Aeropostale is a horrible store. It won’t do me any good or change anyone’s minds, it will just irritate the workers and anybody that heard me talking.
      You haven’t even told us what movies you deem funny. Are you afraid that we’ll bash you just like you bashed Carrey and Daniels? Just like there are different types of music, there are different genres of movies and then different types within each genre. Dumb and Dumber may not be funny to you, but I find it hilarious and cannot wait for the sequel. The prequel (Dumb and Dumberer) was lame in my opinion, but I’m not going to dog on that since the directors tried a different type of humor.
      Now go back to your boring and grey life as you try to make everyone as miserable as yourself.

    • ctiburzi

      you would watch bucket list. you are a butt plug. this movie will be just ask good rather they are 20 or 80. shut your mouth and going about your boring day.

  • j

    woooo fantastic..yeah & definitely true about them all needing a hit. It has been awhile for all of them..

    • PNK

      Jim Carrey has opened at number one for the past several Christmases.

  • jon

    I think I got through the first two minutes of the prequel before getting bored of it.

    • Hayat

      I’m a level 1 guy w/the Army and I absolutely love your pirmramgong. I’ve been following it on and off for the last 2 and a half years. But I have to be honest. I still really don’t understand all of the Jargon. Could someone please explain to me, at base level idiocy sort of simplicity what ALL OF THIS MEANS???Swim (SS Thu, 3S Fri): 10-20 x 50m on 0:45, hold within 3-5 seconds ???And how does the training differ between Single Sport (SS) and multiple or triple sport??? I’m sorry man, I’m just trying to wrap my head around it all. Won’t be able to attend a seminar or a cert for another year or so probably.

      I can totally reltae to this video. I couldn’t stop laughing. In the past four months, I taught myself the Pose Running Method’ for the PDX Marathon and these runners are the phases of my training. Hilarious!!!My slow progression with dorsoflexion on my right ankle. MobilityWOD.com is my friend. Great stuff.


    Why not just get George W. Bush and Rick Perry to star?

    • DRG

      Then it could be a documentary.

    • DRG

      Then it would be a documentary.

    • Jeff

      Get Obama and Pelosi to star. The plot could focus on their handling of our economy.

  • LOL

    America loves crap.

    • America loves crap.


      • Niurka

        Throw in the fixtures that will mess up the otehrs and it really gets interesting. Fatigue to Arsenal after the replay against Leeds, another game against Ipswich and then the Carling cup final sandwiched between the Barcelona games. City have their last 32 games in the Europa still to play and i forcast United dipping before the season ends. Looks like the title will be won on the last day of the season which is great for evryone involved. 2

  • Joe

    The sad thing is that people will actually go to see this crap.

    • LOL

      Of course they will because America loves crap.

    • Tim

      Why is it crap? The first one was one of the greatest comedies of all time.

      People are so cynical these days. IT HASN’T EVEN BEEN WRITTEN YET AND SOME OF YOU ARE CALLING IT CRAP?

      • Tim

        Yeah I agree only people with NO REAL SENSE OF HUMOR WOULD CALL THIS CRAP, why are you even on here in the first place? go on about your boring lifes!!!!!!!

  • MOn

    Hey! I love crap!

    • crap


      • thanks

        why are you yelling my name?

Carrey makes a point of mentioning his own age and that it is wholly inappropriate and those two are even older/younger. Or younger . Like most things he does, Carrey seems to think his joke is funnier and more clever than it is.

  • jeff

    All of you people are incredibly stupid. Dumb and Dumber is one of the 10 funniest movies released in the last 20 years. Regardless how you feel about a sequel, at least give Dumb and Dumber it’s due. Why don’t you just go and watch your glee and modern family. You wouldn’t know funny if it came up and spit in your burger.

    • PNK

      I agree, it’s pretty classic! Jeff Daniels has never been better (except Terms of Endearment, ha)

    • Barb

      Jeff, you got it right! D&D is one of my all-time favorites. There are soooo many memorable lines in that movie. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are the dynamic duo when it comes to comedy. Looking forward to seeing it in theatres.

  • PNK

    1994 Recap: The Mask, Ace Ventura, and Dumb-and-Dumber.
    What a start for an actor!!
    I just was on a long flight and they showed ‘Popper’s Penguins’ in-flight, people were roaring with laughter.
    Luv Mr. Carrey.

    • Slerp

      I find that verrrrrry hard to believe.

  • PNK

    Yes Man.
    A Christmas Carol.
    Popper’s Penguins.
    All hits.

    • PNK

      I forgot ‘Horton Hears a Who’ HAH

  • Gary

    This is the best movie news I’ve heard in years. I will definitely be at the theater for this.

    • ERiks

      Heck yah!

  • The Kurt

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion..that being said..i feel sorry for those that take themselves so serious that you cant sit back relax and enjoy a good humorous comedy. perhaps if you didnt like d&d you have a poor sense of humor and just didnt get it

    • nicky


    • Beatriiz

      35 mins. i was hungover, dhdyerated and had to constantly swap weights because i could do more with the front squats than the push press. i was also very happy i could do all the toes to bar i just cant do them fast yet. what an ass kicker!

  • medianIQ

    I feel sorry for all the significant others of those who can’t see the intelligence and the comedic genius of all those involved in the original and classic D+D! It IS a classic, no matter what your entitled, free opinion is. If you can’t find the humor, then maybe you consider the movie non-fiction…. We all need to get to a happy place now and again!! Can’t wait for the sequel… as long as Carrey, Daniels, and the Farrelly’s are involved!!
