Last night, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were guests on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. They had the pleasure to premiere the first long-awaited trailer for Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel to one of the stupidest yet funniest comedies of all-time. Carrey and Daniels reprise their roles as the two moronic friends reuniting twenty years after their adventure cross-country. After Lloyd tricks on Harry, they embark on another adventure – or misadventure – to search for Harry’s daughter who was given up for adoption. Let the stupidity commence.
Dumb and Dumber is one of those rare comedies where it made me laugh so hard from beginning to end. It truly defined a new sub-genre in comedy: “gross-out humor”. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels perform Harry and Lloyd with so much charm that it’s hilarious. If it wasn’t for these two actors, that movie wouldn’t be called Dumb and Dumber. Possibly, there wouldn’t be a sequel. I’m glad they are back to make every audience laugh until tears come out of their eyes.
I’m hoping Jim Carrey would get out from under the radar after starring in those two flops from last year – The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Kick-Ass 2. It seems like Carrey would bring back his physical comedic charm that made him so funny to begin with. Jeff Daniels hasn’t starred in anything famous for a while, so this would be an interesting return to form here. My fingers are crossed hoping for a funny sequel to a downright funny comedy.
In the meantime, here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Dumb and Dumber To comes out November 14th.
