More DUMB & DUMBER??

Published at: Feb. 28, 2011, 12:46 p.m. CST by merrick

 

Merrick here...

Bob Farrelly, one half of "The Farrelly Brothers" writing/directing team (HALL PASS, SHALLOW HAL, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY and ME, MYSELF & IRENE)  is hinting that a sequel to the siblings' 1994 Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels comedy DUMB & DUMBER is kinda/sort being mulled.

“[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.”

A non-Farrelly DUMB AND DUMBERER: WHEN HARRY MET LLOYD project was released in 2003 - that picture was a prequel, whereas it sounds like the Farrellys are looking at a follow-up/sequel  - returning Daniels and Carrey to their roles (the prequel recast their parts).

    by templesweeper

    Than when I saw the first one. Sure, it is stupid and juvenile, but that didn't make it any less funny. They probably caught lightning in a bottle, but if they can catch the magic again (and not just go for more of a gross-out R-rated comedy) then I am all-game. Bring it!

    by American Mythos

    Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were funny as hell in this. I still chuckle when I think of Lloyd (in his dream) lunging toward Lauren Holly's husband, popping off shots and shouting "Die!" This movie was sick, twisted and awesome. I would definitely see a sequel, as I think would every fan of the original.

    As a young teen jim carrey....

    by emeraldboy

    was to me the funniest comedian I ever saw. when it came to pure slapstick. nobody better carrey. but as time as gone on, I have found carrey to be less funny or something. I have been a huge fan of his since I saw Ace Ventura with a school pal. that was so funny back then. it made me physically sick. I stopped enjoying jim carrey around Me, Myslef and Irene. Liar, Liar was carrey at his very best, I felt.

    DUMB AND DUMBER - the original gross out comedy

    by ScreamingPenis

    It did gross the best, but that dog has been beat to death ever since. Movies have taken it farther and grosser. There are a couple of great character performances in Dumb and Dumber that can be re-done, but that's really not enough.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 1:36 p.m. CST

    Probably a Pipe Dream

    by jimmy_009

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:14 p.m. CST

    As much as I love the first one...NOOOO!!!

    by David Ortiz

    I've never laughed harder in a theatre than when I saw Dumb and Dumber. Jim Carrey was pure genius and in his prime and Jeff Daniels' snowball fight with Lauren Holly was worth the price of admission alone. And therein lies the issue: Bad sequels can tarnish the memory of a great movie (MIB comes to mind), and I don't want that to happen to my favorite comedy. And let's face it - Jim Carrey can no longer bring it like he did back then. Is he still funny? Of course. But take a look at the film again and you can see the pure manic energy it must have taken to pull off what he did. And I just can't see him doing that again. So please Farrelly's, leave my memory of the funniest movie I've ever seen intact.

    The prequel DID suck...

    by Ronald Raygun

    But I still to this day marvel at how those two kids look and act exactly like Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:24 p.m. CST

    Won't happen. Carrey doesn't do sequels.

    by ChickenStu

    Seriously, google it. Carrey is famous for it. He was so dissapointed with "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" he vowed he'd never do a sequel to anything ever again ("Batman Forever" doesn't count, cause the character he played was exclusive to that installment). Seriously, the evidence is there. Sequels to "The Mask", "Dumb and Dumber" (a prequel in that case), "Bruce Almighty"... all been done, and all without Carrey. He won't do this on general principle.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:29 p.m. CST

    Hell Yes!

    I'd love a sequel!

    ...I miss the old Jim Carrey of "Ace Ventura" and "Dumb & Dumber"...so I say yeah, if the script`s good, do it.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:37 p.m. CST

    This might be good but . . .

    by James_Camera_On

    Carrey seems to be going the Bill Murray route: bitter about never getting an Oscar, bitter about his career quietly failing, bored with comedic roles, marriages that aren't working. I agree with the above posters. Carrey with D&D II and Murray with GB III are in the same place. It is not going to happen which is sad because this sequel might work.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:50 p.m. CST

    The problem with this idea is the Farrelly Brothers

    by SifoDyasJr

    Their career had the same trajectory as M Night Shyamalan's did - started with 3 classics: Dumb & Dumber, Kingpin, Something about Mary, and then nothing but crap since.

  • I really don't want a sequel to this film. The original was great, but the story of these two guys has come to a close. How about some different morons instead?

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 2:58 p.m. CST

    Dumb and Dumberer

    by Cobb05

    I don't think this will work at all. Jim and Jeff are getting a little too old to pull this off. I mean how sad would it be that you have Harry and Lloyd in their 50's, with no families or money or anything. So unless somehow we find them starting off being rich or something, it would be a sad movie to have them start off the same way they were in the first movie and end up the same way.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 3:12 p.m. CST

    This CAN be done and CAN be funny!

    by performingmonkey

    It's utter bullshit to say they couldn't do it because Carrey and Daniels would be too old. They're not making the SAME movie, you can pick up any charaters' story later on.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 3:23 p.m. CST

    It's a big "if"

    by PorkChopXpress

    If they can get these two back together and if the script is good, this might be a chance to do some really funny stuff...seeing where these two ended up twenty years later. However, it would take some pretty genius comedy writing, and that's hard to find these days.

  • and of course his JC's character was not in any off the previous Dirty Harry movies.

    by Blanket-Man

    Sure, the odds of it being any good are looooong, but you've gotta figure that one of these way-later sequels will turn out well (and I don't see Ghostbusters 3 being the one). I never get tired of the original. The Sea Bass scene at the diner, the Gas Man's death-by-hamburger/rat-poison, "our pet's HEADS are FALLING OFF!"..., "You're Alive! And a terrible shot!" Right up there with Blazing Saddles and Arthur as movies that never fail to make me laugh.

  • Feb. 28, 2011, 4:42 p.m. CST

    Don't remake the original...change the dynamic.

    by firewhale

    Make it more like a dark comedy. Harry and Lloyd have gone absolutely nowhere thanks to their idiocy and they have the alcohol addictions and credit card debt to prove it. Thanks to mortgaging 130% of their condo's value before the sub-prime meltdown and blowing the extra money on strippers and porn site subscriptions, they're forced onto the streets and begin dealing meth and squatting at an abandoned toilet factory. Things seem bleak until they find a roll of toilet paper with a mysterious coded message on it, apparently promising millions from the toilet scam that shut the factory down. Can they decipher the clues before the cops and/or their meth suppliers track them down? Turns out the message on the toilet paper just ends up being a bunch of shit smeared on the paper, leading to nothing. As all hope seems lost, the duo is saved by a fellow squatter seeing the image of Jesus in the shit-stained toilet paper and Harry and Lloyd make a killing duping gullible Christians into paying a dollar to see the holy toilet paper shit-Christ. The end. Oh, and they bang a hot nun, too.

I think I went into it really wanting to like it, but at the same time keeping some low expectations, and the fact that it has the kid from Not Another Teen Movie (one of my all time favs) all added up to a decent experience. Oh, it also has one of my favorite lines: "Chicks are for fags."

Hopefully the Farley's will be on top of thier game or at least close to it.. And I agree with you it was one of the funniest movies of the 90's.

Did some little filly break your heart?" <br> "No. It was a girl." <br><br> "It's true what they say: old people, while slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose." <br><br> "You have to excuse my friend. He's a little slow. The town's back that way." <br><br> If they can get Carrey to break his no sequels rule (When Nature Calls is also good.

    by Mistahtibbs

    ...from a technical standpoint. Editing issues. Continuity. You name it. And yet it rates as, I think, on, or at the very least near the top of my list of all-time funny films. It's a big, stupid, goofy movie and I LOVE IT! So many lines my wife and I and her brothers STILL quote to this day. "That John Denver's full of shit, man." "Our pets HEADS are falling off!" "You know, old people, while slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can serve a purpose." "I'm getting angry. I almost like it." "HARRY! You're hands are FREEZING!" And so...Many...MORE!!!!

    Dumb and Dumber is one of my favourite comedies ever

    by Super Joker

    But comedy sequels lose their edginess by virtue of returning to established characters. Comedy is a genre where it only seems to work effectively when its raw and on the edge; something you've never really seen before. The act of refinement and repetition are part and parcel of the sequel, and those things often counteract comedy. We're not looking for complex character arcs, here. It's also hard to please everybody. You could split the audience right down the middle between the fans who want to see the characters riffing on stuff from the original, and fans who want to see something as punchy and new as the first time. You can't have both. Sometimes its better to leave it and move on, no matter how appealing it initially sounds. And that's not taking into account disastrous variables such as executive interference. Modern studio risk-aversion is a guaranteed buzz-kill.

    OK korkie70, Jim Carrey doesn't REPRISE roles... BUT

    by ChickenStu

    The Dead Pool was made when Carrey was just starting out, and it was no more than a glorified it part. He was credited as "James Carrey" and it was good few years before his career took off. I doubt back then he would have turned down being in a sequel, cause he probably had rent to pay. And in Batman Forever, it was something he hadn't done before. I'n not sure if that came before "Ace Ventura 2" or not. But something about "Ace Ventura 2" made him swear off sequels forever.

    I'd see it, but I doubt it'll happen.

    Didn't Jim Carrey go on some huge rant where he was all "Blah blah blah i'm too good of an actor to go back and reprise characters i've allready played blah blah blah!" Like he's done anything worthwhile as of late... I'd love for a follow up to Dumb and Dumber, but on the same hand, I really doubt they can top the first one...but if they've got good ideas floating in their heads...AND they can get both Jim Carrey, and Jeff Daniels on board, it could work...could work...

    D&D Was not funny..

    by MST3KPIMP

    It was actually quite desperate and forced. It's success seemed to have ushered in the crop of low stadard comedies featuring mentally handicapped protagonists. Seriously overated.

    considering how bad Hall Pass is

    True, it was funny.

    But to answer the earlier question, I honestly remember laughing more when I saw the original Austin Powers movie. Still, why not do this if the idea is a good one and they all have the desire to come back for it? If it sucks, ignore it.

    Well said, I think you got it completely right. Too bad, but I can't think of a comedy sequel that really goes against what you are saying there.

    Sorry, but Dumb & Dumber is absolutely fucking hilarious...

    by ChickenStu

    That bit where Lloyd goes to get on the plane, but it's not there! That noise he makes whilst he's lying on the ground in agony is just priceless.

    "hey lloyd how was your day"

    by REBEL_SKUM

    "not too bad... fell of a jetway again" i love how that wasn't the first time supposedly! i think i've seen dumb and dumber more times than any other movie. when i was in university a bunch of us were finatics and would constantly quote the movie (and this was 10 years after it had come out). I honestly feel that the acting job by carrey and daniels in this movie is very underated. For example watch the movie and take notice of the character who is not speaking, so many times the other guy is in complete character reacting in ways that is almost as funny as any of the countless memorable lines in the movie... my all time favorite example of this is when lloyd pulls the whole "you'll have to excuse my friend he's a little slow" at the end, look at Jeff Daniels he gives a smile and waive as if to indicate "that's me" my other favorite thing about the writing/acting/directing, is that the characters exhibit different levels of stupidity and stay true to their character, lloyd is actually stupid in a life skills kind of way, whereas harry is for the most part a simpleton who loses it over dick and fart joke kind of humor

    I think it could be good

    These two characters in a post-Bush American era....huge potential here.
