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
In the film it is established Harry is born in 1969 and Lloyd is born in 1970, which means in the film which takes place in 1986, Harry is 17 and Lloyd is 16. In Dumb and Dumber (1994) which takes place 8 years later, Harry is 25 and Lloyd is 24. See more »
At several times during in the film, notably during the slushy scene outside the big A, you can see Lloyd's tooth through the blackout makeup. See more »
What are you crazy boys doing in my tool shed?
We're not crazy, dad. We're special, and Principal Collins wants us to have our own special class room.
My boy's special! How about that!
I knew you were different!

An underwhelming sequel with one saving grace
This has got to be the worst sequel for a movie I've ever seen. Nobody asked for it, but we got it thanks to New Line, who used it as just a cash-in. The basic premise has Lloyd and Harry first meeting in high school in 1986 as part of a special-needs class. The only funny thing about the film is the presence of Bob Saget, who plays the stuffy, put-upon father of the love interest that Lloyd and Harry both have eyes for and his character hates any form of fecal matter. If it wasn't for Saget's appearance, this score would be limited to one star and I'm being generous.
