Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film's directors,
Looks like February is the month for some decent blu-ray releases (Big Hero 6 is also coming out then), as Universal has announced that Dumb and Dumber To will be landing on February 17th:
Two decades after Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’ endearingly dense pairing spun slapstick comedy into box office gold in Dumb and Dumber, the long-awaited sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, arrives on Digital HD on February 3, 2015 and on DVD and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and On Demand on February 17, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber; There’s Something about Mary; Me, Myself and Irene) the
The comedy landscape may have monumentally shifted in the time since the original Dumb & Dumber but great comedy never ages. 1994’s Dumb & Dumber is a genuinely funny film, on a re-watch last month I still laughed loudly at a great many lines and visual gags (personal favourite? “I’m talking about a place called Aspen” “I don’t know Lloyd, the French are assholes”), and the central performances from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels manage to hit the line between charming and annoying exactly right. All this brings us to Dumb and Dumber To which finds the principal filmmakers in very different positions, Jim Carrey in need of a hit,
Perhaps it's no surprise that this should be the dumbest comedy to come out of Hollywood in years. That's the point, you might say. But there's dumb, and then there is depressingly dumb. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were loveable idiots when they first played Lloyd and Harry in 1994, but now they're older, none the wiser and needlessly abrasive, which takes the fun out of their stupid antics.
It's as if the Farrelly brothers are overcompensating; sharpening the daggers just a tad too vigorously to reclaim their place on the cutting edge of comedy, and yet this still feels dated two decades after the first Dumb and Dumber had audiences doubled over - not sure whether to

20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.
Fans of Dumb and Dumber have been clamouring for a sequel for a long time. The original is thought to be not just one of the funniest comedies of the decade, but possibly of all-time. It was a box office smash and came out at a time when anything Jim Carrey touched turned to gold, but those times have changed. Carrey hasn’t released a decent comedy since Bruce Almighty and his co-star Jeff Daniels has moved on to serious dramas and impressive performances in TV shows like The Newsroom. Twenty years is a long time.
In short, Dumb and Dumber To is embarrassing.

Synopsis: Harry (Daniels) and Lloyd (Carrey) go on a road trip to find Harry’s long lost daughter, hoping she will also donate Harry a kidney.
20 years they’ve made us wait and in that time we’ve endured the afterbirth of many a Jim Carrey project from the 1990s in the form of a mediocre TV show and a terrible follow-up with no involvement from Carrey. However, now it seems as though Carrey has decided to put his sequel shunning aside and return to one of his most popular characters along with Jeff Daniels, who has really pushed his critical acclaim to the limits by gracing us with The Newsroom.
Dumb And Dumber is one of those films that seems to get better with age.
Despite the negative reviews, Dumb and Dumber To did open to number one at the box office in the Us with $38 million, but it has since plummeted. It’s been 20 years since we last caught up with Harry and Lloyd – so how was their return to the big screen?
Luke Owen and Scott Davis sit down to discuss the movie and give their thoughts on Dumber and Dumber To, the first movie and the career of Jim Carrey.
