It's the 1980s, and it's the moment that Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne meet. The two individuals are seen by many as 'special', and become best friends as soon as they meet. Principal Collins and his lover, the lunch lady Ms. Heller, want to make as much money out of scams, and their next idea is to create a special needs class. Ms. Heller is the teacher, and they have assigned Harry and Lloyd to round the special students up. School News Reporter Jessica is suspicious though, and desperately tries to find out the truth, even if it means gaining Harry and Lloyd's help. Written by FilmFanUK

User Reviews

some actors, writers, and a director fail miserably at making something entertaining.
4 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the worst movie I have ever seen. I'm serious. Do yourself a favor and stay as far away from this movie as you can....ESPECIALLY if you are even just a small fan of the original movie. The actors are horrible, the plot is even worse, and the jokes are completely unoriginal. I am the biggest Dumb and Dumber fan, and when I saw this prequel, I would've rather been stabbed with a pitchfork and dumped in boiling hot wax than sit through the rest of the movie. It was just so disappointing. Of course, I didn't really have high hopes for it to begin with anyway. Instead of seeing this movie, just watch good old' Dumb and Dumber ONE a couple times.
