We've already gotten a peek at Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back together in the sequel Dumb & Dumber To, coming 20 years after the 1994 contemporary comedy hit. Now we have the first official photo from the film directed by Peter & Bobby Farrelly, and it looks like Lloyd (Carrey) and Harry (Daniels) have traded out their old scooter for a statue of a deer. We're not exactly sure what's going on in this picture, or what that package is in Harry's hands, but it looks like the duo is having a good time. We're not sure if these new antics will shake a stick at the beloved original, but the film is still one I'm excited about. Look!
