Goofs

The Cadillac limo Lloyd is driving at the beginning is from the early 1980s and would have no airbag. The steering wheel is obviously not equipped with one in the shots either. After Lloyd drops off Mary at the airport, he gets back in the car and the wheel has been swapped with an airbag-style one for the scene where it deploys (with an inflated garbage bag of some sort).

Will most likely continue to be the funniest movie of all time.
1 February 2006 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Dumb and Dumber is a stupid movie, but what some people don't understand is that is what it is supposed to be! It's about two completely pathetic, dumb, and hopeless guys who do nothing but make complete fools of themselves. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels give the greatest comedic performances and form the best duo that has ever graced a screen. Every scene, every sentence they speak, and every body movement is pure genius. The way that each of them deliver their lines makes this movie an all time classic that will never get old. I never understood how someone could not like this movie. The only explanation I could have is they think they are too "intelligent" for a "dumb movie" like this. What they don't even understand that it's not the jokes or gags that make this movie so great, it is all in the performances. To those of you who do not like this movie please give it another try and watch Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the roles that they were meant to play.
