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 »
Dumb and Dumber To, 2014
Directed by The Farrelly Brothers
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. »

There are few things as quietly distressing and disappointing to the film fan as seeing people you like and admire feature in movies that are total turd. Such is the case with Let’s Be Cops. I really like Jake Johnson. If you read my Frightfest review of Creep you’ll probably have noticed that I spent about a third of that gushing about Safety Not Guaranteed, the Johnson-starring offbeat dramedy in which he is really good as a louche journalist. He is also really good in New Girl. So good, in fact, that he pretty much carried the show for the first half season it takes to get used to how annoying Zooey Deschanel is in it. »

Running Time: 109 minutes
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. »

Exclusive: The producers behind Mexico-based Dark Factory have mapped an ambitious road ahead after securing a Sundance world premiere berth for their first English-language production, Reversal.
Paradigm represents domestic rights to 100 Cries, a re-imagining of Ramón Obón’s 1965 Mexican horror classic 100 Cries Of Terror that will feature a Us cast.
The project is part of Dark Factory’s slate of Us productions that will shoot in Mexico and receive marketing support to a global audience.
Next to go after 100 Cries will be The Boondoogle, a previously announced title that Dark Factory has now come on to finance and produce and will also shoot in 2015 after Nala Films withdrew from its financing position.

Title: Dumb and Dumber To Director: Bobby Farrelly & Peter Farrelly Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathless Turner, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. Dumb and Dumber Two or Dumb and Dumber Too? Either way the intentional typo reiterates the stupidity of our protagonists who are back after two decades. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have aged badly but more than their farcical out of date “dumb play,” the true problem of ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ lies in the script, drenched with language and coarsely vulgar gags. Twenty years since Dumb and Dumber’s first adventure, Harry finds out he has a daughter who was [ Read More ]

It turns out you weren't the only one who couldn't stop laughing during "22 Jump Street." Star Jonah Hill also had a hard time keeping a straight face, as evidenced in a new outtake featured on the film's new DVD and Blu-ray. Co-star Rob Riggle's bug-eyed prisoner routine makes Hill giggle so hard that he can't even finish one sentence, much to the amusement of Channing Tatum and Dave Franco. The best part of the video is that it shows the action from four different angles simultaneously. It's like film school, only the dirty words are bleeped out. Watch it on MTV.com. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("The Lego Movie"), "22" also stars Ice Cube, Peter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman and Jillian Bell. The DVD and Blu-ray release also includes deleted and extended scenes, featurettes, audio commentary with Tatum, Hill, Lord and Miller, and "The Dramatic Interpretation »
