Sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber
When I heard Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were coming back for a new Dumb and Dumber movie, I was so excited. After the mindless crapfest that was the prequel movie we don't talk about, there was finally hope for a good sequel. Then, I saw the movie.
While Carrey and Daniels still have impeccable chemistry, their characters have become inexplicably stupider, a trait that doesn't help an already jumbled plot. The nods to the original film are appreciated, but when the entire movie relies on feelings of the first in order to keep audiences entertained, it doesn't bode well for the movie.
In the end, Dumb and Dumber To is a missed opportunity for a great sequel that ends up being a hodgepodge of half-assed jokes built around nostalgia for the original. It did have its moments of hilarity, but they were not many.
