Trivia

The title of the film could be ironic because even though Harry and Lloyd are meant to be imbeciles it can be suggested Joe Mentalino, Shay and Nicholas Andre are also dim witted as they think Harry and Lloyd are agents helping Mary get her husband back. In fact before he died Mentalino even remarks he made a mistake thinking Harry and Lloyd were spies after discovering they were just handing a briefcase back to Mary. See more »

Goofs

When Mary's husband Bobby is getting out of the police car at the end of the movie he opens the door from the inside himself instead of having to be let out. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]

a barrel of laughs! (and more...)
14 August 1998 | by El CelisSee all my reviews

Destined to become a classic in its genre, DUMB & DUMBER reaches its objective of making people laugh off their seats, in a film that crowns Carrey as the modern Lewis & gives Daniels a great chance to show us his lighter side. This is the kind of movie you want to see 100 times, with pranks & puns so silly you love to hate! high moments are Daniel`s bout with the toilet, the parakeet incident, and Jim Carrey`s love declaration to a schoolboy. If U R not silly and have no sense of humor, and basically are not alive , don`t watch this movie...otherwise, rent the video, order some pizza & beer and prepare for 1999: Dumb & Dumber (The early years) Two fingers up
