It's the 1980s, and it's the moment that Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne meet. The two individuals are seen by many as 'special', and become best friends as soon as they meet. Principal Collins and his lover, the lunch lady Ms. Heller, want to make as much money out of scams, and their next idea is to create a special needs class. Ms. Heller is the teacher, and they have assigned Harry and Lloyd to round the special students up. School News Reporter Jessica is suspicious though, and desperately tries to find out the truth, even if it means gaining Harry and Lloyd's help.Written by
The scenes in which the boys go on a field trip to a natural history museum were filmed in the lobby of the Healey Building, a historic neo-gothic high-rise in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia, which has never been a museum. Several other scenes were filmed in the immediate area of the building. See more »

Whoa! The half boy / half horse.
Oh! That's more of what we're looking for.
He's *super* special.
Well... I mean, I got to get a job anyway. So if I - if I sign your thing, I can just come and go whenever I want to?

Stupid, inane prequel to Dumb and Dumber chronicles morons Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne during their early years in high school when they met for the first time and became inseparable best friends. The little bit of story there is revolves around the two asinine pals and their attempts to thwart a scheming principal (Levy). A talented, enthusiastic cast is wasted in this dismal comedy where unappealing characters run around spouting ridiculous banter and falling victim to cheap gross-out gags. The two leads may look like Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, but that doesn't mean they'll produce the same results. A brainless farce that doesn't measure up for fans of the original—or any in general. *
