The original Dumb and Dumber was, and still is, a brilliant film. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were perfect casting for the Farrelly brothers film and both gave performances that were hilarious while not requiring either to “go full retard.”
There has already been a prequel, Dumber and Dumberer, which detailed how the two brainless fools first met, but that wasn’t great if truth be told. However, could the magic be rekindled in a sequel?
Bob Farelly thinks so, as he recently revealed to Moviehole plans to make Dumb and Dumber 3:
“[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”
I would so go and see that movie. The prequel was lame, and not a patch on the original, but I’d be willing to block the memory of that flop out in order to see Carrey and Daniels back together as Harry and Lloyd.
I know it’s a little sad but I’d kinda like to see how that pair of idiots are doing 20 years on. If I don’t ever find out it’s not going to cause me sleepless nights or anything, but I think it could be an interesting and (more importantly) funny film. Which is all I really look for from a Farrelly brothers flick.
