Dumb and Dumber sealed the deal on Jim Carrey’s perfect year in 1994. I first discovered Dumb and Dumber as a trailer on a VHS copy of The Mask. Since I watched it a lot, I knew every word to the trailer. So I was surprised that I still found the movie funny when I finally watched it on Comedy Central. In fact, Dumb and Dumber is my favorite comedic performance from Carrey (without computerized assistance). It makes me laugh hard every single time I watch it.
Dumb and Dumber is the best movie I’ve seen about two dumb guys being dumb. As well as the best movie directed by the Farrelly Brothers. Jim Carrey plays Lloyd Christmas, the dumber friend with a bowl cut and chipped tooth who works as a limo driver. He’s the obvious scene stealer responsible for classic moments like “the most annoying sound in the world,” misusing breath spray, and his wacky dream sequence. While Jeff Daniels plays Harry Dunne, the not as dumb (but still pretty dumb) friend with shaggy hair who works as a dog groomer. He actually does manage to be funny enough to be a good foil.
Which gives us some of the movies most memorable scenes. Like licking the frozen pole or the laxative scene (the only fart joke I laugh at). The story is just returning a briefcase to a woman in Aspen. Since Lloyd fell in love at first sight with her. Little do they know it’s a ransom briefcase. Leading to a road trip in the Shaggin’ Wagon. Dumb and Dumber is so dumb, yet so hilarious. “I like it a lot.”
