Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
It's been 20 years and Harry Dunn has found something out - he has a daughter! Lloyd Christmas, his equally dim-witted friend, takes one look at a picture of her, develops a crush, and insists the two track her down. What ensues when Harry finally agrees is a bizarre encounter with an old lady and more hilarity because of their sheer stupidity. Written by
Harry tells Lloyd, (listing his sacrifices over his achievements in their lifetime friendship) that he's watched every episode of 'Full House' (1989). This was a real life jab at actor Jeff Daniels-as fans have often mistaken him for series star Dave Coulier. See more »
Despite a flashback showing Lloyd with a young Freida Felcher back in the 1990s he isn't his younger self. See more »
SPOILER: After the end credits, Harry and Lloyd are riding in the Zamboni, complaining that they got the wrong milkshakes (when in fact, they are drinking each others' milkshakes). They toss them backwards for the shakes to hit the truck of their old nemesis Sea Bass. He follows them as a text comes up for a faux fourth installment, "Dumb and Dumber For", coming in the summer of 2034, followed by a camouflaged Captain Lippencott walking out of the text. See more »
LIke many others I thought this movie was going to be that sequel you wish they didn't make. Because I love Dumb and Dumber. And it seemed the only reason they made this sequel is because the directors and one of the actors haven't been doing good stuff, the last couple of years.
But surprisingly, Dumb and Dumber To is actually pretty fun. Sure some things have changed that aren't so great. The jokes are hit-and-miss, sometimes the timing is way off and the characters of Lloyd and Harry are a little more mean-spirited and maybe even a little too dumb at times. But on the other hand everyone really did their best to make this feel like a Dumb and Dumber film. Unlike the god-awful prequel this film really feels like Dumb and Dumber and it's actually fun to see some scenes re-created, but with a new little twist, or characters from the original film returning. And even though some jokes and scenes are forced, I have to admit the film actually had a great deal of scenes that made me laugh a lot.
So as a big fan of the original film I was surprised that I enjoyed this film as much as I did. Let's all not expect a masterpiece, but a film we can enjoy, that pays a nice homage to the original and well ... really could have been a lót worse.
