Harry and Lloyd are two good friends who happen to be really stupid. The duo set out on a cross country trip from Providence to Aspen, Colorado to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner, a beautiful woman named Mary Swanson. After a trip of one mishap after another, the duo eventually make it to Aspen. But the two soon realize that Mary and her briefcase are the least of their problems. Written by
During Lloyd's dream sequence, when it looks like the chef has defeated him - he got brutally beaten up and literally had his head kicked in - Lloyd rises to his feet and says, "Eeuueh", to the chef who looks somewhat uneasy. Jim Carrey also says, "Eeuueh", in The Mask (1994) released the same year as this film. See more »
When Lloyd frantically checks the departure boards there is no sign of the airport in Aspen on the departure boards. See more »
Excuse me. Could you tell me how to get to the medical school? I'm supposed to be giving a lecture in 20 minutes, and my driver's a bit lost.

Funniest Farrley's Brother movie you will ever see...
It's hard to find a Farrley's Brother which isn't funny, and this is even harder to classify as, 'not funny'...because it is the funniest!
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels team up as the not just odd, but strange, weird and mentally disabled couple.
After losing both of their jobs on the same day, Lloyd (Carrey), who retrieved a bag which a woman he drove to the airport leaves in the terminal, encourages his friend Harry to come with him to Aspen where the girl flew to. They think that the gas company is after them since they didn't pay their bill, but is actually the kidnappers of Mary (Holly)'s husband, who were supposed to pick up the money where she left it in the airport terminal.
From their start in Rhode Island, until they arrive in Aspen, the kidnappers follow Harry (Daniels)and Lloyd, along the road. The script is the most well-written comedy I think ever, because every thing that they do in the movie, leads to something new and funny that ends up happening to them later on.
Their are more than a few funny scenes, and the dialogue is always right-on.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Farrley Brothers' movies, or anyone who likes Jim Carrey. It's a hilarious comedy and the two stars were perfectly casted, especially Jim Carrey, of course.
And now, an excerpt from the film,
"Skies, huh?" "That's right." "They yers?" "Yup." "Both of them?"
