Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the title roles (though viewers may find themselves debating which is which) in this genially low-brow comedy. Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are two intellectually-challenged best friends who share an apartment so messy that gangsters aren't sure how to trash the place; the guys also have a certain problem (not difficult to understand) holding on to jobs. Lloyd is working as a limo driver in Rhode Island when he picks up a beautiful and wealthy woman named Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) who is being taken to the airport. Lloyd… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dumb and Dumber, which features Carrey and Jeff Daniels as nitwits traveling cross-country, is a frayed string of gags posing as a movie. Carrey, though, does literal-minded doofdom with peerless enthusiasm."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Given American cinema's current obsession with innocence and ignorance, at least this never romanticises its protagonists. They are genuinely, irredeemably, 100 per cent no-hopers."
‑ , Time Out
"Easily one of the funniest (and most quotable) movies ever made..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...it tickles the funny bone often enough to merit serious consideration among lowbrow comedies."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Gross to the max but very funny, this succeeds through energy, ingenuity and -- against all the odds -- the charm of its dopey leads."
‑ , Film4
"The wholeheartedness of this descent into crude and rude humor is so good-natured and precise that it's hard not to partake in the guilty pleasures of the exercise."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"A movie that fully lives up to its name, right down to an opening credit sequence rife with intentional misspellings and grammatical errors."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"The caviar of low-brow, gross-out comedy."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"[Featrues] a plethora of memorable scenes."
‑ Mark Dinning, Empire Magazine
"Well titled and, for its purpose, a total success."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"This is a long way from the social comedy of Jerry Lewis. The characters here are ultimately turned into punching bags or punch-line dispensers."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"An execrable catalogue of doody jokes, Dumb and Dumber is an abominable, abdominal comedy."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"The Farrellys' knack for stupid, Three Stooges-esque comedy writ larger by an infusion of heart excels with the complementary screen teaming of manic Jim Carrey and consummate screen actor Jeff Daniels. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"This gleefully lowbrow film is best enjoyed by the young, and by those who can still laugh at the passing of gas."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Gone are the days of John Belushi, where rudeness was raised to an art form."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
