Storyline

It's the 1980s, and it's the moment that Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne meet. The two individuals are seen by many as 'special', and become best friends as soon as they meet. Principal Collins and his lover, the lunch lady Ms. Heller, want to make as much money out of scams, and their next idea is to create a special needs class. Ms. Heller is the teacher, and they have assigned Harry and Lloyd to round the special students up. School News Reporter Jessica is suspicious though, and desperately tries to find out the truth, even if it means gaining Harry and Lloyd's help. Written by FilmFanUK

User Reviews

Dumb and "dumberer" indeed
9 October 2004 | by thomasvis222See all my reviews

This movie can be best described by the words "extremely disappointing". After the hilarious "dumb and dumber" featuring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, this can only be described as disastrous!

Olsen and Richardson do not fit the characters they play and bring no new characteristics into them. They are only trying to imitate Carrey and Daniels, in which they do not succeed.

Where "dumb and dumber" was inventive and hilarious at some points, this was none of the above. The jokes, if there were any, were boring and foreseeable.

Carrey and Daniels managed to combine stupidness and humour into the characters, Olsen and Richardson only the stupidness. They just acted like a bunch of total idiots, and that's it.

A pity!
