Dumb and Dumber Retrospect

Writer: Casey Lee


"Dumber and Dumber To" dumbing your way to cinemas on 13 November.

While it's only been 11 years since the last "Dumb and Dumber" movie (which really made us feel dumb for watching it), it took the Farrelly brothers 20 years to get together again with the original dumbest duo to make a sequel. Not that we haven't had plenty of those, but if you've watched "Dumb and Dumber" back in 1994, then we know you are looking for new gags to imitate after running through them all in 20 years (ketchup and mustard, anyone?)

With "Dumb and Dumber To" finally coming to screens this 13 November in Singapore and 27 November in Malaysia, it is probably a good time to start dumbing ourselves down with this recap of dumb and dumber movies.

"Dumb and Dumber" (1994)

Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels

Plot: Before Lloyd Christmas loses his job as a limo driver, he finds a locked briefcase left behind by the woman it belongs it. Without knowing that the briefcase contains money to pay off a ransom for her kidnapped husband, Lloyd gets his best friend Harry Dunne to go on a road trip to return it to her, while the kidnappers pursue them to let the hijinx ensue.

 

Funniest Scene: When Lloyd Christmas becomes a kung fu master.

Memorable Quote: "Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?"

"Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd" (2003)

Cast: Derek Richardson and Eric Christian Olsen.

Plot: Harry and Lloyd meet each other for the first time in the 1980s at highschool, before the road trip that will change their lives. When the principal of their high school tries to scheme money off a special education grant, he assigns Harry and Lloyd to gather students for the 'special needs' class, while the school reporter smells something fishy.

Harry and Lloyd playing tag after getting Slushies before being outplayed by the disgruntled storekeeper.

Memorable Quote: I'm flying! Woo-hoo! So this is what a flag sees all day.

"Dumb and Dumber To" (2014)

Cast: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

Plot: After 20 years since their last road trip, Lloyd and Harry, reunite to go on a new road trip to find Harry's daughter he never knew he had and Lloyd's new love.

Watch out for: Similar gags and slapstick comedy from "Dumb and Dumberer", references to recent TV series and Jennifer Lawrence.
