Harry and Lloyd are two good friends who happen to be really stupid. The duo set out on a cross country trip from Providence to Aspen, Colorado to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner, a beautiful woman named Mary Swanson. After a trip of one mishap after another, the duo eventually make it to Aspen. But the two soon realize that Mary and her briefcase are the least of their problems.Written by
When Lloyd tackles Mary on the hotel stairs, she is wearing black pantyhose. By the time they get to the hotel room, she has miraculously changed into grey tights. See more »
Excuse me. Could you tell me how to get to the medical school? I'm supposed to be giving a lecture in 20 minutes, and my driver's a bit lost.

The director's cut adds the following scenes:
An alternate take is used of Mental killing Lloyd's parakeet Petey, in which we hear a brief snapping sound and see a disgusted reaction from Shay.
In the diner, Harry tells the waitress that his soda is flat and has no "bubbles", and the waitress takes his drink and blows through the straw.
The "uh-oh" guitar riff is added to the soundtrack when Sea Bass is first introduced.
An alternate take of Sea Bass asking "You gonna eat that?" is used, and a shot is added of him spitting a wad of chewing tobacco spit into Harry's burger.
The scene in the honeymoon motel is extended, with Lloyd using an empty shot glass to listen to a couple having sex in the adjoining room, and Lloyd then makes a joking remark to Harry about what he'd do to him if he was a woman.
Shay tells Mental when they're pulled over that she has to "squeeze a lemon" (meaning urinate), which accounts for Mental telling her to "stay down" when Lloyd and Harry arrive.
The soundtrack is removed from the opening shot of the Dante's Inferno restaurant.
Lloyd's second encounter with Sea Bass in the restroom is extended, and alternate takes are used. Upon finding Lloyd in the stall, Sea Bass now announces "you've got to be shittin' me! It's my old friend, and right on time", strips to a leopard-skin thong, and tells him "Here's your happy place!" before Harry enters and knocks him unconscious.
An extended scene in the van is added following the above, in which Harry drills Lloyd on why he was in a bathroom with a half-naked truck driver.
At the hotel, Harry dresses up in a Spandex ski outfit, and Lloyd asks why he's wearing that. He also comes to the realization that if he and Mary were to be married, her name would be Mary Christmas.
A brief scene is added where Harry empties Mary's toilet out the window after unsuccessfully trying to repair it.
Lloyd makes a heated speech to Harry about Mary being the love of his life and telling him to stay away from her.
Will most likely continue to be the funniest movie of all time.
Dumb and Dumber is a stupid movie, but what some people don't understand is that is what it is supposed to be! It's about two completely pathetic, dumb, and hopeless guys who do nothing but make complete fools of themselves. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels give the greatest comedic performances and form the best duo that has ever graced a screen. Every scene, every sentence they speak, and every body movement is pure genius. The way that each of them deliver their lines makes this movie an all time classic that will never get old. I never understood how someone could not like this movie. The only explanation I could have is they think they are too "intelligent" for a "dumb movie" like this. What they don't even understand that it's not the jokes or gags that make this movie so great, it is all in the performances. To those of you who do not like this movie please give it another try and watch Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the roles that they were meant to play.
