It’s beginning to look like some anonymous Hollywood executive – in a misguided attempt at ingenuity – may have sent an email around the town saying, ‘Hey you guys! Remember the 90s? Let’s do that again!” With Jurassic Park, Point Break, Dumb And Dumber among stories now being revisited, it was only a matter of time before Mrs Doubtfire appeared in the creative crosshairs again.
On its release in 1993, Mrs Doubtfire raked in over $441 million in international box office, on a budget of just $25 million, and added Golden Globes to its trophy cabinet to boot. Based on Anne Fine’s novel ‘Alias Mrs Doubtfire’, the film adaptation was penned by Leslie Dixon and Randi Mayer Singer, and gave Robin Williams the perfect showcase for his chaotic kind of comedy. Starring as Daniel Hillard – a father facing divorce – Williams portrayed a man so desperate to maintain contact with his beloved children »

What does Dumb and Dumber have to do with Wolf of Wall Street? Nothing aside from sour grapes between the films' producers, which may have been enough to launch a devastating legal battle. Allow me break down how a lawsuit over the upcoming sequel Dumb and Dumber To has roped in accusations about the makers of Wolf Of Wall Street. The 1994 hit comedy Dumb and Dumber was produced in part by Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler, but both were denied a chance to participate in the making of the sequel Dumb and Dumber To. For this offense, the pair sued Red Granite and its heads Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland, the production company behind Dumb and Dumber To. In a stunning move, Krevoy and Stabler have added an amendment to the original suit that claims Red Granite committed racketeering in making the company's biggest hit to date, The Wolf of »
Washington, April 10: The makers of the 'Wolf of Wall Street' have denied using 100 million dollars of embezzled money to finance their critically acclaimed film.
A representative for Red Granite told the Hollywood Reporter in a statement that the false, malicious and baseless allegations put forward by Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler, producers of the 1994 hit 'Dumb and Dumber' were untrue, and Red Granite looked forward to the prompt dismissal of these claims.
The rep said that they have no facts to back up their accusations Messrs. Krevoy and Stabler resorted to rank speculation and innuendo, and that there was simply nothing to these naked allegations.
Krevoy and Stabler had earlier sued Red Granite and its principals,. »

Producers Steve Stabler and Brad Krevoy, who last year sued Red Granite Pictures for being frozen out of the sequel to “Dumb and Dumber,” have added a new claim to their complaint: violation of racketeering laws.
But Red Granite contends that the latest twist in the litigation is “false, malicious and baseless,” with no facts to back it up.
In an amended complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Stabler and Krevoy claim that Red Granite’s principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland have funded the company “with monies that include proceeds from unlawful activities,” and that the money has been used to finance the “Dumb and Dumber” sequel and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” But their claim does not go into specifics of the nature of the unlawful activities, other than to cite “published reports that individuals based in Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia and other countries in Asia and the »

The source of the $100 million used to finance Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street is being openly questioned in a Los Angeles courtroom. Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler, producers of the 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber, are suing Red Granite and its principals, Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland, for being excluded from a sequel. The original lawsuit has been amended to include a claim that their adversaries have committed racketeering. Aziz -- the son of (former) Malaysian prime minister Tun Abdul Razak -- in the past has acknowledged that Red Granite's investors come mainly from the Middle East and Asia. That,

I love how movies make you feel certain emotions as you watch them. It's one of my favorite parts about going to the movies. I always find it interesting, though, when I get vicariously embarrassed during awkward moments. Meaning I am embarrassed for the characters in the movie in the positions that they are put in. I started thinking about this while I was watching Goodfellas over the weekend. Is it just me, or does it seem like this movie is on every other day? Anyway, There's a scene where Joe Pesci starts to get pissed off at Ray Liotta for telling him he was a funny guy. The scene went from being fun to uncomfortable very fast, and I started to feel embarrassed for Liotta's character.
I started to think of what other movies that made me feel like that, and came up with the following list of films. »

It has been a full 20 years since Peter and Bobby Farrelly first introduced us to the characters Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in the outrageous 90s comedy Dumb and Dumber, and this year the dynamic duo is finally coming back to the big screen. But while the sequel, titled Dumb and Dumber To, won.t be out until the fall, earlier today we got our first ever peek at footage from the film at Universal Pictures. presentation at CinemaCon. So what have the two best friends been up to in the last two decades? Read on to find out! Beginning with what may very well be the first scenes of the movie, the Dumb and Dumber To reel began in a mental hospital where Harry (Jeff Daniels) has apparently been visiting Lloyd (Jim Carrey) for about 20 years. A pair of nurses talk about how sweet their relationship is, and we »
The lovable dumb guys are back.
Universal Pictures premieres the first look footage at CinemaCon to the comedy sequel “Dumb and Dumber To.” The film continues Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne’s adventure set twenty years later after their original adventure to find Adele Pichlow.
Latino-Review was in attendance at CinemaCon watching and laughing at the hilarious footage.
The footage started with Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) visiting Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) in a hospital. With Lloyd sitting in a stupor-like state, he surprises Harry that he was pretending the past twenty years. However, they must first remove a urinary catheter from Lloyd. And the hilarious ensues with the removal.
The movie footage also revealed Harry’s long lost daughter he had twenty years ago, in which he finally discovered with a post card. The best friends then started to use their detective skills (or lack thereof) to find her. There »

Dumb and Dumber To is dumbing soon! At least that's what the teaser posters costars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels tweeted Friday say. And it only makes sense that the colorful polyester tuxedos made famous by dimwitted best friends Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas in the original Farrelly Brothers' comedy Dumb and Dumber are being trotted out to promote the sequel. Carey was the first to tweet his bright orange ensemble, captioning the poster "#DumbTo @Jeff_Daniels ;^)." His costar answered back with his own snazzy poster showing off light-blue threads with a matching bow tie. Slapstick simpletons Harry and Lloyd have taken 20 years to make it back to the silver screen and »
Sometimes it's easy to forget that this year brings a long overdue "Dumb and Dumber" sequel (titled, appropriately, "Dumb and Dumber To"), 20 years after the original. But in case this had slipped your mind, Universal has debuted a pair of teaser posters that, in the words of Vulture, are "pretty perfect."
Both posters feature a simple image: one of the garish tuxedoes that Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) wore in the first movie, quite memorably. The posters are accompanied by two wonderfully chosen words: "Dumbing Soon." Yes.
According to the official plot synopsis, it features the two idiots looking for their long lost children "in the hope of gaining a new kidney." So it will maintain the road trip movie feel of the first film, with a whole bunch of additional nuttiness. Original writer/directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly are back (along with about sixteen other writers, who »

Word from early test screenings is Dumb and Dumber To is good, but, of course, these are test screenings so just how much trust we can put in them is limited at best. However, I remain very interested in this movie as I really hope the Farrelly brothers can deliver given Dumb and Dumber is an absolutely hilarious comedy as far as I'm concerned. The Farrellys haven't exactly had the greatest track record thus far, but with the perceived excitement from both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as they return to play Harry and Lloyd it gives me confidence. Not to mention Cam Neely is also back as Sea Bass and even Brady Bluhm is returning as little Billy in 4C... pretty bird. Today the film's official website premiered a couple of teaser posters featuring a couple of recognizable items. Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters on November 14. »

Our dreams of a Dumb and Dumber sequel have been dashed and un-dashed over and over these last few years, but we can now safely say that it's happening and will come out on November 14, 2014. To further drive this home, Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey tweeted out a pair of perfect movie posters. They both read "Dumbing Soon," which ironically enough is a brilliant pun. »

It’s time to suit up, Harry and Lloyd-style.
Two new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have been unveiled, and the statement is simple: orange and blue tuxedos never go out of fashion.
Does this mean the iconic formalwear donned by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the 1994 Farrelly Brothers comedy Dumb and Dumber will be worn in the sequel? In the new film, the dimwitted buddies reunite 20 years after their first adventure to find one of their long-lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney. So yeah, we can see it — what better occasion to wear »

Mock-yeah-ing-yeah-bird-yeah... Here's the first two (or, to use the deliberately dumb spelling, 'first to') posters for Dumb and Dumber To, the long-awaited sequel to Dumb and Dumber. The posters are a neat little nod to the 1994 original - they're the suits worn by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels when they accidentally stumble upon a briefcase full of money and go on a spending spree. »
Twenty years after its release, “Dumb and Dumber” will finally see its sequel open in theaters. Harry and Lloyd will re-team for an unexpected sequel and the return of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey in the starring roles.

The sequel film will open one week after Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” and one week before the third installment in “The Hunger Games” film franchise with “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.” “Dumber and Dumber [ Read More ]

Here's a fantastic video presentation that takes us through the evolution of film in less than 3-minutes. It's a montage that film lovers are sure to enjoy. Here's a note from creator Scott Ewing:
This montage began as a labor of love and quickly became an obsession of mine. Many days and hours were spent researching clips, downloading and editing. This could not have been possible without the complete and total encouragement from my wife Tiffany ... you rock!
The following montage chronicles the evolution of film from its conception in 1878 by Edward J. Muybridge to the Lumiere brothers in 1895. Georges Melies a trip to the moon in 1902 was a total game changer and from there we go to the first theatrical releases starting in 1920-2014 ... this portion of the montage is chronological.
There are some notable films which are absent from the montage such as the Great Train Robbery (1903), The »

This short video definitely has an affection for Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Steven Spielberg, but I found it to be an entertaining peek through the history of cinema while also managing to include quite a few 2014 features in its running time. Created by Scott Ewing, he posts in the description the following: This montage began as a labor of love and quickly became an obsession of mine. Many days and hours were spent researching clips, downloading and editing. This could not have been possible without the complete and total encouragement from my wife Tiffany ... you rock!

Most comedy sequels are a disappointment. And when 20 years passes between the original and the second movie, it doesn't often turn out good for the audience. Directors Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly are subverting that notion with Dumb and Dumber To, a follow-up to their 1994 classic Dumb and Dumber. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are returning to reprise their roles as Harry and Lloyd, now on the search for a healthy kidney they can give to one of their Illegitimate children. The Brothers Farrelly have begun the process of showing off their finished movie to the public, appearing in person to welcome audiences to this long-awaited new adventure for these two dimwitted pals. Well, the verdict is in via Twitter, and fans who attended the first test screening seem to be enjoying what they are seeing. We don't know when a trailer will debut just yet, but take a look »
