Critical Mass: Is 'Dumb and Dumber To' dumb or just plain stupid?

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.

New 'Dumb and Dumber To' posters spoof 'Lucy'

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%.”

'Dumb and Dumber To' trailer: It's Christmas (and Dunne) in June!

It’s been 20 years since we first met Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas, two idiots who wouldn’t know good fortune if the Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Team drove up and invited them on a cross-country bus tour. The times have been hard on these two — especially Lloyd, who was institutionalized after having his heart broken by Mary Samsonite. Though it’s worth remembering: he who laughs last, laughs hardest.

Things quickly get back to normal, though, in the first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To: Same horrendous haircuts, the Shaggin’ Wagon is still rolling, their pets still have their heads, and, once again, a woman comes between them. In this case, the girl might be Harry’s long-lost daughter, his love-child with old flame Fraida Felcher (Kathleen Turner).

The trailer really nails the Farrelly Bros. sweet spot, with the phrase “just above the giblets” evoking the retching genius of the scene in Kingpin where Woody Harrelson had to pleasure his landlord to keep his apartment. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

How a guy with a clever Vine and Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence scored cameos in 'Dumb and Dumber To'

Peter Farrelly knows how much people love Dumb and Dumber. Of course he’s a little more self-deprecating about it than that, and attributes it more to the fact that it’s just always on television. Still, the 1994 Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels comedy that he created with his brother Bobby was a cultural phenomenon. Has anyone been able to mention Big Gulps or John Denver in the past 20 years without thinking of Lloyd and Harry?

EW spoke to Peter Farrelly, currently shooting the sequel in Atlanta, about two super fans who scored cameos in his movie. One is a guy you’ve never heard of who happened to make a Vine that made the Farrellys laugh. The other is Oscar-winning actress and proclaimed Dumb and Dumber expert Jennifer Lawrence.

Jim Carrey shares another 'Dumb and Dumber To' photo, this time with an Emmy winner

It’s been almost two decades since we last saw Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, and they still can’t read good.

Jim Carrey tweeted a photo from his WhoSay account of himself and Jeff Daniels, from the set of Dumb and Dumber To, reading an upside-down children’s book. Fresh off his Sunday night Emmy win for Best Actor in a Drama, Daniels couldn’t be further from Will McAvoy, with his mouth agape and hair looking especially electrified. The book is called How Roland Rolls and was written by Carrey himself about a wave who’s scared of the shore. According to Carrey’s Twitter, it comes out today.

Jim Carrey teases 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel with new photo

The Dumb and Dumber sequel has had its share of problems: Being dropped by Warner Bros. Being sued by everybody. But still it endures, like some kind of purely metaphorical decapitated bird with its head held on by scotch tape. And just like that decapitated bird, Dumb and Dumber To will amuse blind children everywhere — a fact made clear when returning star Jim Carrey posted a photo of himself getting back into character as Lloyd Christmas. Check it out: READ FULL STORY

'Dumb and Dumber' lawsuits get ugly. (Pets' heads not yet falling off, though.)

Two producers of the original Dumb and Dumber who are being sued to be kept off the upcoming sequel responded with a legal cross-complaint of their own against Red Granite Pictures. Earlier this month, Red Granite filed suit to exclude Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler from Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel Red Granite is making with Universal, claiming the duo no longer had any contractual rights to the project after it was dropped by Warner Bros. and New Line in June.

Violent new 'Kick-Ass 2' trailer doesn't run from gun controversy

Oooooo, boy. Jim Carrey is going to get Carpal tunnel from tweeting about this one.

Kick-Ass 2 unveiled an extended NSFW trailer at Comic-Con, and it’s already available online. Carrey, who joins the franchise as the patriotic vigilante, Colonel Stars and Stripes, has expressed regret about the film’s level of violence in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting, complicating Universal’s promotional plans. But this new clip aims full-steam into the storm, embracing the film’s over-the-top comic-book violence. In the opening scene, the two main characters frivolously exercise their right to bear arms, and then when Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) finally shows off her deadly skills, she dis-arms an devious villain.

“Game on, c–ksuckers,” she says later. Indeed.

Watch the explosive clip below.
