Now that brotherly duo Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly have gotten their dream project The Three Stooges out of the way, they are setting their sights on another long gestating project, the sequel to Dumb and Dumber.

The directors also spoke more about their new comedy project, The Three Stooges. While »
