Are you guys ready for the return of two of the dumbest characters in movie history? No, Iím not talking about Bella and Edward. Iím talking about Harry and Lloyd, the dapper-when-they-need-to-be gentlemen at the forefront of the Farrelly brothersí hit comedy Dumb and Dumber and the upcoming sequel Dumb and Dumber To. We wonít even pretend weíre talking about that shitty prequel. And now we have our first look at the two characters in action, assuming you think two guys going absolutely nowhere counts as action.

First appearing on the filmís Twitter page, the above pic of Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) could have been taken out of a scene from the first filmís cutting room floor. Not that it takes much to create these signature looks. Just give Carrey a bowl cut and just hope Danielsí bedhead is particularly spiky that day, along with a wardrobe that wouldnít look out of place on an elementary student. But thereís something so heartwarming about seeing these guys back together again.

And what are they doing? Well, theyíre riding a stationary statue of a buck and clearly having a good time doing it. It isnít clear where this moment will fit into what we know about the story, but Iím hoping the box that Harry is holding happens to contain his kidney, though I doubt it. Even theyíre not dumb enough to keep an internal organ outside of a refrigerated container, right?

In the sequel, the two best friends are on another road trip looking for Harryís illegitimate daughter so that he can give her a kidney transplant. They somehow bump heads with the dysfunctional Pichlow family, including the murderous wife Adele (Laurie Holden), who wants to kill her doctor husband (Steve Tom) and stepdaughter (Rachel Melvin) so that she can take the familyís money and hit the road herself. The film also stars Kathleen Turner and Rob Riggle, and will host a bevy of cameos, most of which are being kept in the dark for now.

Peter Farrelly recently took to Reddit for an informative AMA (which you can find here) and answered more than a few questions about the upcoming film, promising that this could be the greatest film in all of cinema. They took enough time banging the script out, taking advantage of help from other screenwriters and the Family Guy writing team to fill the film with as many jokes as possible, so I wonít be calling bullshit on it just yet. Weíll all find out together when the film hits theaters on November 14. Letís hope everyoneís pets keep their heads on until then.
