Amusing, Inappropriate, and Nostalgic
15 November 2014 | by rgkarimSee all my reviews

Dumb and Dumber, a comedy that many years ago had families laughing their heads off. With its incredibly stupid antics, simplistic one-liners, and pushing the borderlines in appropriate films. I personally didn't enjoy it as much as others, and regretted seeing the prequel Dumb and Dumberer even more. So you can probably guess I wasn't too thrilled to see another attempt at continuing the simplistic story. Yet I go back in once again to give you my thoughts on the latest in comedy movie installment. So let's get started.

When you come out of an 11-year gap, it can be rather tricky to reintroduce a series whose last good movie was two decades ago.. To my pleasant surprise, this sequel managed to recapture the spirit of the old movie, bringing back many enjoyable elements. Dumber and Dumber To returns to the comedy that made it famous in all the glorious forms you remember. Starting right from the get go, Lloyd and Harry share in idiotic banter as they find humor in the most inappropriate situations. As seen in the trailers, the story takes place 20 years from the first one, and Lloyd has played a practical joke in the form of playing a vegetable. This is only the start to the nearly two hours of insults, inappropriate fantasies about sex, and death defying slapstick humor that is to come. The diversity in comedy keeps things fun, as fans get to go back to the nostalgic 90's comedy that entertained us so long ago. I myself laughed the most at the simplistic, childish humors of crashing into things and making bad puns. Others found the duo's audacious actions towards women the highlight of the comedy buffet. Nevertheless be sure that there are plenty of funny moments to behold in this movie, so long as you can get through some of the crude moments.

Of course one big factor is how the directors grabbed as many of the old cast as possible. This was a brilliant move, as it brings the authenticity back to the fans and bypasses the awkward transition a new cast might bring. The best move of course was getting to see Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back for this film. Twenty years has not affected Carrey's ability to play Lloyd, as he drops right back into the annoyingly loud moron. Carrey is just as nasally as before, and has the act of playing the neurotic nimrod quite well. His facial expressions make you laugh, and his delivery of the inappropriate comments was so well done that it almost seemed like he was insulting the women. Daniels as well brings back the old spark of Harry, whose lisp makes most of his dialogue hilarious. Unlike Carrey, Daniel's character isn't quite as in your face, and his reactions to Lloyd's deranged ideas kept me chuckling the entire time.. I also found his lines to be better written, having a more controlled stupidity that was better timed. Of course, I felt that the both of them would be less funnier had they not been paired for most of the time. The chemistry between these two is what really brings the humor out of this movie, and integrates the new cast quite well. Rob Riggle played the third wheel again, but did a nice job intertwining his style with the crazy duo. Rachel Melvin on the other hand was designed to be a little too airheaded though. Her looks were the most entertaining of the bunch, but her character's lack of intelligence got on my nerves. Still she opened up some comedy for Lloyd and Harry.

To sound like a broken record, I think the main thing that I enjoyed was how similar this film was to its predecessor. So many memories came flooding back on this journey, whether through the mention of a character, or a timeless stunt. What impressed me even more is that although they brought many blasts from the pasts, there was still a lot of new things to give this film it's own spin. The characters have aged twenty years, new roles have been adapted, and new people have come into their world. One can only wonder what will happen to the cast, and how Lloyd and Harry will screw up next in their endeavors. Unfortunately for me, I was able to predict most of the twists and see the jokes coming so it lost a little edge for me. In addition, some of the jokes crossed the line a little too far for me, leaving me more disgusted than entertained.

Overall Dumb and Dumber Too was a much better sequel than I intended it to be. While I think those who liked the first one will get the most enjoyment out of it, newcomers will be able to enjoy this tale as well. Again, this comedy goes back to the art of clever writing and 90's theatrics, and avoids the humor that relies on a catch phrase to keep you laughing. While there is no theater quality to it, i.e. special effects, or masterpiece story, Dumb and Dumber To may be the last decent comedy of the season. I suggest you give it a try if you are looking for stupid fun, but be cautious about who you take to theater. My scores for this film are:

Comedy: 8.0 Movie Overall: 7.5
