Storyline

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 Sam

Trivia

Sometime in March, 2006, Dumb and Dumber was showed completely uncensored on Cartoon Network. Including the scene when Jim Carrey lifts up a girls skirt, exposing her entire backside...this is weird considering it was the nearly R rated version on a Kids channel. See more »

Goofs

The Cadillac limo Lloyd is driving at the beginning is from the early 1980s and would have no airbag. The steering wheel is obviously not equipped with one in the shots either. After Lloyd drops off Mary at the airport, he gets back in the car and the wheel has been swapped with an airbag-style one for the scene where it deploys (with an inflated garbage bag of some sort).

Quotes

[first lines]
Lloyd Christmas: 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.

Brilliance!
29 July 1998 | by InnsaaneSee all my reviews

Dumb and Dumber is so stupid, it's brilliant....The dumb humor and wonderful acting from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are so well layed-out, and so well told, that this rates up as good tasteless comedy. This movie is not for everyone though, a silly mood, and a taste for bathroom humor is required to sit through this, but if you qualify you're in for a major treat. ****
