Jim Carrey surprised many when he confirmed he was on board for a sequel to Dumb & Dumber (1994), but that dream is over as Carrey has reportedly left the project. Back in 1994, Jim Carrey was the biggest star around. He only ever made one sequel, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995), despite all the potential franchises he could have continued with. The Mask (1994), Dumb & Dumber (1994), and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) would all go on to spawn moderately successful animated shows, and each would get a Carrey-less monstrosity of a sequel.

So it was no surprise how excited fans were that after 18 years, Carrey confirmed his return to the role of Lloyd Christmas. The sequel, which had a working title of Dumb & Dumber To, would have reunited The Farrelly brothers with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. It would have been great to see how these two hapless losers were getting on 20 years down the road. »
