Dumb and Dumber To is a sequel caught in an odd flux. It’s probably not going to bring in a new audience, and chances are, fans of the old film will have forgotten why they enjoyed it in the first place. Dumb and Dumber was, well, dumb. But it worked because it was made in a time where you could get away with being dumb and cartoony. These characters couldn’t exist now. But, here they are anyway. Will it work? Let’s just stay optimistic because Dumb and Dumber To releases November 14.
Here’s the synopsis in case you need a reminder:
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.
