Alternate Versions

The TBS version eliminates the following things on TV:
  • The entire scene where Lloyd urinates in the beer cans is cut.
  • Lloyd does not pull up Mary's skirt, it cuts right before that.
  • Lloyd does not fart into a lighter, it cuts before he can even sit down and do it.
  • Lloyd does not kick the guy in the nuts, it cuts just before the kick hits and it is implied that he kicks him.
  • Lloyd does not pull the chef's heart out, he just puts his hand in the guy's chest and the guy dies.
  • You do not see Mary's boobs.

Will most likely continue to be the funniest movie of all time.
1 February 2006 | by cornhol675See all my reviews

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.
