BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Lucy isn't the only movie character whose brain capacity percentage is relevant. Lloyd's brain is important to. Dumb And Dumber To star Jim Carrey shared the above poster, which parodies Lucy but switches up the math a bit to remind us that Carrey's Dumb and Dumber character's brain is also functioning outside the norm, in its own way.
Here are the 5 callback jokes we spotted in the first full trailer for Jim Carrey and Jeff Danielsí sequel. What else did you see or hear? Share your finds in the comments section.
It has to be said that none of the comedy in Dumb & Dumber To feels overly fresh. The trailer seems like it belongs to a film that would have come out during the 1990s, but thatís not necessarily a bad thing. You donít want to tread over the exact same ground in a comedy sequel, but you also donít want to abandon the basic premise either.
Twenty years ago, Dumb And Dumber dropped into the comedy landscape like an atom bomb of stupid. That's not to say the movie was stupid, but let's face it... Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne probably only left elementary school on the good graces of a very planned clerical error.
Dumb and Dumber's Harry and Lloyd, played by Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey respectively, tend to find themselves on the go quite a bit. The the first film they hopped into Harry's dog-shaped pet grooming van and took a trip out to Colorado to try and return a "lost" briefcase, and the upcoming sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, will put them on a road trip of a whole different variety.
It has been a full 20 years since Peter and Bobby Farrelly first introduced us to the characters Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in the outrageous 90s comedy Dumb and Dumber, and this year the dynamic duo is finally coming back to the big screen. But while the sequel, titled Dumb and Dumber To, wonít be out until the fall, earlier today we got our first ever peek at footage from the film at Universal Picturesí presentation at CinemaCon.
In this sequel, co-written by directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly along with a slew of others, Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are headed on another road trip, this time with the hopes of tracking down Harryís illegitimate daughter because heís the only person who can donate a piece of his liver for her.
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. And now we have our first look at the two characters in action, assuming you think two guys going absolutely nowhere counts as action.
There should be a little something for everyone in the coming year. And to help you plan out your movie-watching year, we singled out 14 titles weíre looking forward to in 2014, as well as a list of additional canít-miss movies.
Peter and Bobby Farrellyís Dumb and Dumber To will open in theaters on Nov. 14, 2014, according to Universal Studios. This upcoming comedy reunites original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in arguably their signature roles.
With production on the upcoming Dumb and Dumber To having already begun, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are putting the final touches on the film's cast, and today it's being reported that they have added one of Hollywood's more popular comedic character actors to the ensemble. Rob Riggle, the Marine-turned-entertainer who has starred in movies like 21 Jump Street and The Other Guys, is now attached to play a dual role in the anticipated sequel to the 1994 comedy hit.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back on set for the long-delayed sequel to their 1994 comedy hit Dumb and Dumber, but thereís something decidedly smart about the behind-the-scenes snapshot Carrey shared on Twitter. That would be double self-promotion.
The new movie once again finds the duo on a road trip as Harry tries to find his illegitimate daughter and give her the kidney transplant that she needs. While it's not entirely clear how the story works, along the way they get caught up in the drama of the Pichlow family, who have some pretty shady things going on behind the scenes.
The sequel is set 20 years after the 1994 original film and finds best friends Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne hitting the road again as the latter searches for his illegitimate daughter so that he can help her with a kidney transplant. While it's not entirely clear how they will fit into the main plot, the three new actors will be playing the Pichlow family - and they are a clan that's chock full of issues.
Dumb and Dumber To has Carrey and Jeff Daniels back as Lloyd and Harry, two morons who are deeply devoted buds. In this new adventure directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly, the pair are 20 years older but no wiser.
