Dumb and Dumber (1994)

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… More

Consensus: A relentlessly stupid comedy elevated by its main actors: Jim Carrey goes bonkers and Jeff Daniels carries himself admirably in an against-type performance.

The plot, of course, is merely an excuse for an endless series of gags, and the percentage of them that score is fairly high.

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.

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.

From the puns to the slapstick to the toilet, Dumb and Dumber is performed at such a high level that it transcends many of its influences.

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.

A movie that fully lives up to its name, right down to an opening credit sequence rife with intentional misspellings and grammatical errors.

Easily one of the funniest (and most quotable) movies ever made...

Dumb is a complete understatement, Dumber still doesn't cut the grade.

Dumb and Dumber is one of the silliest movies ever made. It has a simple plot but there are a lot of laughs along the way through the film. Jim and Jeff make a… More
