Dumb and Dumber To is the 2014 sequel to the 1994 hit film Dumb and Dumber. The film stars Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas and Jeff Daniels as Harry Dunn from the first film.
Twenty years after the events of the first film Harry and Lloyd have to deliver a mysterious package to a girl named Penny.
- Releasing the film 20 years is too late for a sequel to a smash-hit comedy. As a result, repeating the schtick with 50-year olds seems forced.
- The plot from the first film was rehashed.
- Harry and Lloyd act flat throughout almost the entire film.
- Bill Murray is wasted in a cameo where he doesn't even reveal his face.
- Unfunny jokes which primarily consist of fart jokes (including a scene where Butthole farts out feathers), sexist jokes, racist jokes, etc.
- The crude humor is more crude than the amount seen in the first film, including much more toilet humor and a joke making fun of people with Aspergers.
- The leads' stupidity is so exaggerated it leads to contrieved situations.
- Dated references.
- Kathleen Turner looks bored out of her mind (similar to her performance in Baby Geniuses).
- Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels still give good performances.
- Seeing the blind neighbor Billy from 4B return was amusing.
- Sometimes the comedy does work, in particular when Rob Riggle's character reveals himself out of disguise.
- Rachel Melvin's Penny is hilarious, a character whose idiocy is comparable to Harry and Lloyd.
- The film is still somewhat better than Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
The film met with primarily negative reviews from critics and audiences. The film currently holds a 30% “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes with a critic consensus that reads "Dumb and Dumber To does have its moments, but not enough of them -- and the Farrelly brothers' brand of humor is nowhere near as refreshingly transgressive as it once seemed."
Dumb and Dumber To opened up at #1 on its opening weekend of November 14, 2014 grossing $36,111,775 domestically. In overseas box office, it grossed $83,629,000. The total domestic gross was $86,208,010. Overall, the film made $169,837,010 against its $140 million budget.
