Alternate Versions

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.

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
