Movie Review – Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

19 December 2014 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dumb and Dumber To, 2014

Directed by The Farrelly Brothers

Starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Kathleen Turner

Synopsis:

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. »

16 November 2014 9:33 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After a decisive victory on Friday, Dumb and Dumber To held on to the top spot this weekend and beat most expectations in the process.  An expected challenge from Disney holdover Big Hero 6 fell a bit short, which left the comedy sequel the undisputed box office champ.  Ddt opened with an estimated $38 million this weekend – easily surpassing the high end of its projections.  The sequel now ranks as the highest domestic debut ever for the Farrelly Brothers, topping 2000’s Me, Myself and Irene even after adjusting for inflation.  Both Big Hero 6 and Interstellar  had strong sophomore holds, though neither was able to overtake Harry and Lloyd in the end.  Title Friday Total 1.  Dumb and Dumber To $38,053,000 $38 2.  Big Hero 6 $36,010,000 $111.6 3.  Interstellar $29,100,000 $97.8 4.  Beyond the Lights $6,500,000 $6.5 5.  Gone Girl $4,625,000 $152.7 6.  St. Vincent $4,025,000 $33.2 7.  Fury $3,810,000 $76 8.  Nightcrawler $3,038,000 $25 9.  Ouija $3,025,000 $48.1 10.  Birdman $2,450,000 $11.57   Full story after the jump.

Weekend Rock Question: What's the Best Jim Carrey Movie?

14 November 2014 12:49 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters this weekend, and the comedy sequel will likely be the biggest Jim Carrey movie in years. It may be getting horrible reviews, but the original Dumb and Dumber is such a masterpiece that many will want to catch up with Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas regardless.

Now we have a question for you: What's the greatest Jim Carrey movie? Feel free to go with a 1990s classic comedy like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective or The Mask, a more serious work like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind »

Review: 'Dumb & Dumber To' is an Amusing But Bad Comedy Sequel

14 November 2014 9:17 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's hard to believe that 20 years have passed since The Farrelly Brothers brought audiences the silly comedy Dumb & Dumber. It was the directorial debut of Peter & Bobby Farrelly, and they were lucky to land the rubber faced comedy star that was Jim Carrey just as his career skyrocketed following the release of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Mask earlier in the same year (yes, all three of these movies came out in 1994), and his pairing with Jeff Daniels was more than intriguing. Now here we are 20 years later, and the lovable idiots Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas are back for another road trip in Dumber & Dumber To, and while the energy is still there, the comedy just doesn't land the same after two decades. More below! It's amazing that Dumb & Dumber To even exists, but what's more impressive is that the sequel feels like no time has passed aside »

Jim Carrey Facts: 29 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Dumb and Dumber To' Star

14 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Jim Carrey has graced the big screen for over 30 years.

Carrey started off as a stand-up comic in Canada, but veered towards TV and film a few years after his move to Hollywood. The actor landed a variety of roles in no time, and Carrey's big break came in the early '90s on the popular sketch comedy show "In Living Color" (1990-1994). After becoming a featured player on the show, Carrey was offered the lead roles in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask," and "Dumb and Dumber" -- all in 1994. Yeah, he did all right. This fall, Carrey returns to one of his landmark roles, playing the affable goof Lloyd Christmas in "Dumb and Dumber To."

From his friendship with Tupac to his co-star romances, here are 29 things you probably don't know about Jim Carrey.

1. James Eugene Carrey was born January 17, 1962 in Ontario, Canada to Kathleen Oram and Percy Carrey. »

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ isn’t too bad

13 November 2014 10:39 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dumb and Dumber To

Written by Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly, John Morris & Bennett Yellin

Directed by Bobby FarrellyPeter Farrelly

USA, 2014

 

Once upon a time, the Farrelly Brothers constructed sight gags capable of reaching new heights (or depths, as the case may be).  Right about the time Brett Favre was murdering comedy in There’s Something About Mary, however, they abandoned their bread and butter in favor of a “comic spaghetti” approach.  Meaning, they throw as many gags at the wall as possible and see what sticks.  Thanks to the comic chemistry of Carrey and Daniels, Dumb and Dumber To is just sticky enough to justify its existence.

It’s almost impossible to remember what a sensation Dumb and Dumber was back in 1994.  Not only was it the driving force that introduced Jim Carrey to the world (along with The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, »

Review: 'Dumb and Dumber To' Starring Jim Carrey And Jeff Daniels

13 November 2014 11:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of any movies to be getting the "long overdue sequel" treatment, "Dumb and Dumber" is one of the more unlikely candidates. When the film was released just shy of 20 years ago, it made $250 million internationally on a budget of just $17 million and was caught in the whirlwind of hype and excitement that accompanied the meteoric rise of comedian Jim Carrey —to put this in perspective, it was released the same year as Carrey's other breakout movies, "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and "The Mask." In the time since, a dopey animated series and even-dopier prequel were released, both without the consent or creative involvement of Carrey, co-star Jeff Daniels and co-writers/directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly, but questions about a follow-up remained. Now, "Dumb and Dumber To" is upon us, and it is such a vile, tragically unfunny pile of garbage that we want to stand on a soapbox and point »

'Dumb and Dumber To': Film Review

13 November 2014 8:04 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Twenty years is a long time to stay faithful to a pleasure as disposable as Dumb and Dumber, the aptly titled 1994 debut of Peter and Bobby Farrelly. A comedy relying on the eager dumb-upsmanship of well-matched stars Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey (the latter enjoying a blockbuster year, leaping from TV to features including this, The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective), the picture pushed the limits of innocent vulgarity so successfully it spawned a short-lived cartoon and a widely maligned prequel. Recognized for their distinctive sensibility, the Farrellys soon made the endearingly goofy Kingpin and their magnum

Quiz: How much do you know about Jim Carrey?

10 November 2014 9:28 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When it comes to old friends, it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you last saw one another.  For audiences, it’s been twenty years since we last caught up with Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumber.  We’re welcoming Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back to the big screen this week the long-awaited sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, and we couldn’t be more excited to see these two team up again.

While Daniels has gone all serious actor on us in “The Newsroom,” Carrey has mostly shied away from leading roles on the big screen, appearing most recently as a street magician in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.  Now our beloved nitwits are embarking on a new adventure in search of Harry’s long-lost daughter in the hopes she’ll give him a kidney. 

That’s not much of a plot to go on, »

Jeff Daniels, 'SNL' impersonate Jim Carrey's biggest roles to Jim Carrey's face

25 October 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What if all of Jim Carrey's best-known, over-the-top characters were merely inspired by members of his family? That's what "Saturday Night Live" surmised, as it sent its members, one after another, to impersonate Jim Carrey's mannerisms and catch-phrases directly to Jim Carrey's face, during a "Carrey Family Reunion." If you never thought you'd watch someone speak out their butt again -- a la "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" -- guess again. The cast even had Carrey's "Dumb and Dumber" co-star Jeff Daniels along for the roast. Carrey was host of the Oct. 25 episode of "SNL," and Iggy Azalea was on as musical guest. Carrey and Daniels' sequel "Dumber and Dumber To" hits theaters on Nov. 14. »

Revolution Studios Buys International Rights to Morgan Creek’s Library for $36.8 Million

7 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Revolution Studios has acquired the international distribution rights and copyrights of Morgan Creek’s film library for $36.75 million, the company said Tuesday. Morgan Creek retains domestic rights.

The complete library includes 64 titles, including “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” and its sequel, “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Young Guns,” the “Major League” franchise and “The Whole Nine Yards,” the latter of which was part of Eli Samaha’s Franchise Films.

Inverness Distribution, a Bermuda-based company, previously owned rights to Morgan Creek’s international library and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York in late 2011. The company was formerly known as Morgan Creek International.

Kpmg was tasked with overseeing the liquidation of Morgan Creek’s library on behalf of a syndicate of banks that included Société Générale, Bank of Ireland, Santander, Commerzbank and Ing through the Chapter 11 sales process.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: A Supercut

6 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A lot of people see cinema as a way to capture reality. Quite frankly, I do not see it that way. It is an artificial medium, and everyone watching knows it. The capturing reality mindset is needed for some pictures, but it is not a hard and fast rule. I think filmmakers embracing film's artificiality can make for very interesting products. One of my favorite ways to highlight that is by directly breaking the fourth wall, a storytelling technique that addresses the audience in very a direct way. It can make them complicit in a nefarious plot. It can accuse them. It can bring them in on a joke. It is a very fun device to use, and, for the most part, it works when it's used. Below is a pretty fun supercut of breaking the fourth wall in movies. Here, though, breaking the fourth wall is translated as looking directly at the lens. »

I've seen some clever editing in my day, but never have I imagined you could spin footage of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective into a horror prequel. This fan made trailer, titled Finkle, follows the Miami Dolphins kicker who botched the Super Bowl Xvii game winning kick. Now he has only one thing on his mind... revenge.

The first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To hit the Internet this week, and in an unusual move, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels hit the talk show circuit to promote it. It's been a long time since either the Farrelly Brothers or Carrey made a great movie, but hopefully going back to something that made us love them to begin with will revitalize them.

The underappreciated film performances of Jim Carrey

15 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With a potential comeback on the cards for Jim Carrey, Rob looks through the hidden gems of his career.

Feature

Alrighty then. To get straight to the point – Jim Carrey’s career hasn’t been up to much lately has it? Certainly as leading man, at least. His last big-hitter was 2009’s A Christmas Carol, while his most recent leading role was 2011’s Mr Popper’s Penguins.

His latest performance outside of cameos was an interesting part in Kick Ass 2 though, a promising turn which left many audience-members wanting more from his character. With the trailer dropping recently for Dumb And Dumber To as well, the hints of a comeback for the iconic performer have continued to grow.

There’s been more positivity towards Dumb And Dumber To in comments than we might have expected (although this welcoming response was far from unanimous), which is undeniably a positive sign for the fledgling star. »
