The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 looks like it just had the best opening day of the year.
Tag: Dumb and Dumber To (1-10 of 25)
The odds are definitely in The Hunger Games‘ favor this weekend: The third film in the trilogy is expected to surpass the $100 million mark at this weekend’s box office, and will for sure take the No. 1 spot by a long shot.
The first two Hunger Games films proved the franchises’ ability to make big bank, with the first film making $152.5 million its first weekend and the second film, Catching Fire, grossing $158 million its opening weekend. This means this film is likely to follow in their footsteps, especially because it’s the only wide release this weekend. READ FULL STORY
Dumb and Dumber fans flocked to theaters for the long-awaited Dumb and Dumber To this weekend. The sequel made an estimated $38.1 million for a strong debut — one that beat out Disney’s Big Hero 6.
Audiences first met Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’ foolish alter egos in 1994′s Dumb and Dumber, a film that grossed $127.1 million in the U.S. and became an icon of low-brow comedy. Judging by this weekend’s box office, audiences’ tastes haven’t changed too much — even despite the critics’ consensus that the 20-years-later sequel is, well, not great.

There has been a lot of cinematic nostalgia for 1994 lately, with 20-year celebrations for such classics as Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption. But 1994 was also the year of Dumb and Dumber, a classic of sorts in its own right. Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne were two oblivious nincompoops who have dreams of opening their own worm store, but end up taking a road-trip from Rhode Island to Colorado that lands them in the middle of a kidnapping and ransom scam. The visual gags were side-splitting—those tuxedos, nailing Lauren Holly in the face with a snowball, OUR PETS’ HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!—but there some something magically sweet about just how dumb and dumber the duo really was. “One of the brighter qualities of the works of the Farrelly brothers is how, even in the midst of profane unholiness and toilet humor, a sincere pathos often emerges,” writes EW‘s Jason Clark.
Twenty years later, Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) are practically right where we left them, as if they’d spent two decades in a near-catatonic state. Their hair is the same, their adventure—to locate Harry’s beautiful daughter (Rachel Melvin) in order to find a suitable kidney donor—is familiar, and generous helpings of the Farrelly brothers’ gross-out humor is spread throughout.
It’s a film that is hardly at the mercy of the critics—the first film wasn’t exactly a critical darling—but it’s still worth examining reviews to see if this is a movie you need to see today in theaters or one that can wait for home viewing.

Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters today, nearly 20 years after the original Dumb and Dumber came out. Which prompts a question: How will a franchise that’s almost the age of a legal adult perform, in terms of both critical acclaim and box office dollars?
Last week’s major releases were Disney’s Big Hero 6 and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, two films with huge expectations. This week’s biggest release is Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel to 1994′s Dumb and Dumber—and expectations aren’t quite as high.
When Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels first portrayed the Dumb and Dumber pair 20 years ago, audiences couldn’t get enough: The film grossed $127.2 million domestically and $247.3 worldwide. But those same audiences proved to be picky, because 2003′s prequel, When Harry Met Llyod, had a sad run—it made $26.3 million domestically and never cracked the top five.

The Farrelly brothers’ Dumb and Dumber To, which will reunite two of cinema’s greatest dolts when it hits theaters this Friday, features a lot of the stuff you remember from the first film: non-stop stoogery, road trips, extremely annoying sounds, the Mutt Cutts van, and much more. However, it’s a new addition to the running gag list that really stands out.
Or doesn’t stand out, as it were. READ FULL STORY
If most people only use 10 percent of their brains, then Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne must use a maximum of 1 percent. At least, that’s the idea behind the newest posters for Dumb and Dumber To.
Dumb and Dumber To stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to reveal two new posters for the film, which showcase a marketing campaign that might look familiar. The tagline reads, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%.”
If the guys’ colorful eyes didn’t tip you off, you’ll probably recognize that line from this summer’s Lucy: The tagline for the Scarlett Johansson film read, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what she could do with 100%.”
