Dumb and Dumber 2 is going to happen

 

Put on your best looking orange or blue tux and get ready, word on the street is Dumb and Dumber 2 is going to happen.   EW http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/04/02/dumb-and-dumber-2-farrelly-jim-carrey/ is reporting that the Farrelly Brothers, are set to set to start shooting this September.  Thankfully Jim Carrey is back on board, and Jeff Daniels was able to free up some room in his day planner to make this happen.

 

 

Carrey and Daniels discuss their motivation for a scene

 

 

I can hear you already “wait a minute, I might be dumb but wasn’t their already a sequel?”.  You are correct my friend. In 2003 the sizzling hot prequel Dumb and Dumberer was released without the original cast, writers or directors.  As expected this film scored a metric of 10% fresh on the tomato meter.  I think the plan is to pretend that much like that time you wore Crocs we are going to pretend it never happened.

 

 

My buddy Jim from our softball team rides one of these to our games we bust his balls every week

 

On a more personal note, I am thrilled that they are making a quality sequel to this film.  Its great news, if for no other reason than the sudden re-relevancy of my referring to people as Lloyd Christmas.

    LOL. I was going to say, wasn’t there a sequel?? And then you just answered my question the minute after I thought it. For some odd reason I can’t really remember either film too well, so I suppose there is some truth to what you’re saying about enough time passing to make people think it never happened.

    I will say thought that I do remember thinking the first one was funny in a very lame way. (Hey, I like lame humor, lol.) And what really sticks out the most was the suitcase filled with “IOU’s.” Hahaha.

    Not entirely sure about how I feel about the sequel happening though, quite honestly. I don’t know if I’ve grown out of Jim Carey or if he’s gotten less funny over time, but after a certain point I stopped being interested in a film just from hearing his name. I don’t know if that makes any sense, but it’s like if I hear Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Jennifer Lawrence right now, I’m more likely to want to learn more about a film they’re said to be starring in than one starring Scarlett Johansson or Nicholas Cage.

    That first one had me rolling, I also like the cameo but hockey legend Cam Neely as Sea Bass.

    So often when children go to the barbershop the barber has no idea how to cut children’s hair and will often give the kids the “Lloyd” as I call it. This happens more often than it should and although I should just be quiet about the bad hair cut I cannot help but say, “What? Did you ask for the Lloyd when you went into the barbershop?”

      Hell Scott you could save yourself 10 bucks and just grab a salad bowl and pair of scissors, if they are just going to get the Lloyd. :-)

    Awesome, it’ll be great to see these guys back on the big screen together! It’s been a long while since Carrey has been laugh out loud funny!

      Pete I read that the writers who did Hot Tub Time Machine are working on the script and would Imagine the Farrelly brothers would have some script input as well as directing. So hopefully this will be a return to form for Carrey. Not that I don’t like some of his dark comedy stuff. I think Jeff Daniels might be currently running a taco stand somewher so this is good news for him as well. :-)

    Hopefully this sequel is good. I don’t know how many times I watched the first Dumb and Dumber movie.

    • Adam April 7, 2012, 9:39 am

      Jaskee, I see this is currently available via Netflix streaming, I might have to check it out again.

    Farrelly brothers haven’t been funny for a while, so I’m not getting my expectations up for the sequel, hopefully will be a lot better than the prequel!!! Jim Carrey needs a hit, is worrying for his film career he’s been doing tv work

    Agreed Chris its been a long time since There’s Something About Mary. Its got to be better than that sequel, I would rather watch someones vacation home videos than ever watch that again.
