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
Despite the title Lloyd actually shows some signs of intelligence. Lloyd tells Harry while they are in the middle of a freeway that the blue lines on the map are rivers which is accurate. Lloyd tells Penny that Lepuchans are indeed legendary creatures based in Ireland while Penny thought it was India. Despite being in hospital for 2 decades Lloyd can easily use a mobile phone which did not exist back in 1994. Lloyd also correctly guessed that Travis was going to shoot him and Harry to steal the box given to them by Dr. Pinchelow even though he was sarcastic. Harry to an extent showed a bit of intelligence as he is seen in a running gag changing Lloyd's diapers despite never having babies himself. See more »
Harry and Lloyd near the end of the film have a change of top clothing despite the fact they never packed any clothes to take with them at the start of the film. See more »
Another Classic ruined by yet another awful sequel.
It seems that there are a lot of great movies that don't need to have a sequel, yet somehow they are given one. Dumb And Dumber To can be put on the list of bad sequels.
Did the Farrlley Bros merely use this to cash in on the cult classic? Maybe, and I mean, who wouldn't?
Where do I start. There is NO DIRECTION in this movie. There is hardly any substance into the plot. The acting was really bad, and I am gonna call out Jeff Daniels specifically. We all know Jim Carey is a comedic actor.... that's it. We aren't expecting any Oscar worthy performances from him. Now Jeff Daniels is a notable actor who has done almost every genre. He also just won an Emmy for Best Lead Actor In A Drama Series for "The Newsroom". This was a different Harry Dunn in this movie. It was awful.
Lloyd says in the beginning "Comedy is all about timing", and it's ironic because the timing was miscued for 75% of the movie. The movie drags along for quite awhile. It becomes very dull, and there was a 20-25 minute period where nobody in the theater laughed. THAT IS NOT GOOD IF YOU'RE WATCHING A COMEDY.
Were there some funny moments? Yes. Was it nice to see Harry and Lloyd? Of course! But I gotta say that this movie may kill Carey's/ Farrelly Bros career. This movie basically felt like it was made 18-15 years too late. It was very outdated.
Those who grade this higher than a 5 must have missed out on the original... because this was garbage. Very sad and disappointed. Don't waste your time.
