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. Yet that was what made them funny to film going audiences across the world, as their stupidity was only matched by their tolerance for pain and their tenacity to make it to the finish line. It's the movie that solidified Jim Carrey's career, and made Jeff Daniels even more memorable than he was at the time. Now the boys are back in town with Dumb And Dumber To, and we have word on when and where you can get your first look at the continuing adventures of everyone's favorite idiotic duo!
After that quiet Tweet (which was further confirmed by Peter Farelly's official Reddit account), confirmation began springing up that not only is the trailer set for its debut on June 10th, but that two special presenters are going to be on site to break the wind.... er, news, on this one. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will be two of the guests on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon next Tuesday night ready to reveal just what they've been up to all of these years (perhaps they will come in character as Harry and Lloyd?). If you're a glutton for spoilers on this front, our coverage from the Cinema Con presentation for the film back in March can help you get a quick leg up on what will probably be seen in the preview spot.)
The Farrelly Brothers have been slowly building up steam on this one, and weirdly Jimmy Fallon's show has been a great platform to make announcements about the project. After all, it was Jeff Daniels' announcement on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last July that started us all down this rabbit hole. It would only seem fitting that the next step in the journey would take place where it all began. As Peter Farrelly explained on his Twitter page,
Dumb And Dumber was the Farrelly Brothers' ticket to comedic stardom back in the early '90s, and some say it's still the greatest crowning achievement in their careers. After a string of hits (There's Something About Mary), flops (The Heartbreak Kid), and underrated successes (The Three Stooges), it'll be a fitting return to see Peter and Bobby return to the world of Harry and Lloyd. Now let's just hope it's a triumphant return worthy of this pair of iconic characters.
Dumb And Dumber To will be dropping your IQ down to a more comfortable level on November 14th, 2014.
