User ReviewsReview this title
I think that the people that made this movie are having the last laugh, it will go over $30 million by the end of next week. For a movie, any movie, to bring in $30 million bucks on about a $15 million dollar budget is a coup. After this is all said and dumb with the DVD sales and the HBO licensing this movie will make a cool $50 million bucks profit, easily.
Stop taking yourselves too seriously, go watch a stupid movie and laugh your ass off. Hell, if we can sit through a funny movie, maybe we can all lighten up a little in these way too serious world.
The acting was stellar. Harry and Lloyd could not have been portrayed any better. The actors did a stand up performance, incredible. They deserve to be recognized for this...
The movie was great, at its core it was about a fanatical friendship, which is what the world needs more of.
I give the movie 2 thumbs up, way up.
Avoid all costs and stay away as far as you can from this garbage. It worse than anybody could expect. Don't see it even for free! Trust me! I never felt so miserably than I watched this trash. Why, Why I have lost my time and my money for it? Nobody knows. Anyway, you've been warned.
My rating: F- or 0/10.
Sorry for my bad English.
This is one of the worst sequels of all time.
When I first heard that there's a sequel to Dumb and Dumber I was ecstatic since this was the best comedy in ninenties and certainly one of the best comedies ever. But after seeing opening credits (No Jim & Jeff), I was a little sceptical. Never mind, it still can be good...
Erghh, wrong. The movie was getting worse and worse. The leading characters were shown like a couple of retards (very unlikable, since in original there aren't THAT slow), who were just trying to imitate Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and failed miserably. Lack of charm, i guess. But the main fault goes to script writer who provides a lot of already seen jokes as the rest of the producers of this crap.
I agree, it would be nearly impossible to beat the original version, since it was full of original black humor, but hey, at least they could try harder. Despite that movie sucked, it has some moments...but since i can't remember any if them, i couldn't rate it higher than
3 out of 10.
For one the jokes are so forced on you that you'd have to be a child to understand the humor. Some of the actors in the movie, I've seen in very good movies, like the kid who where the donkey head in the parade, he was good in "HOLES". But I guess he didn't see this hole coming. In summary don't and I repeat don't expect to find some humor in this movie because there is none. I hate this f****** movie.
God only knows why.
Anyway, he puts it in the machine and shortly afterward leaves the room to take a phone call.
He owes that caller more than he knows.
See, as I hadn't paid any money for it, nor even gotten my butt up off the couch to load the disc, I had little investment in it. Thusly I figured it wouldn't take much to meet my relatively low expectations for it. After all, the first one was pretty funny, right?
Before I continue, it should be noted that this movie had none of the original cast members, writers, directors, etc from the first film.
No one, at least, worth noting.
Now, back to the story. Where the first movie had laughs galore (most of them cheap lowbrow humor, but hey, if I want Shakespeare, I'll read Shakespeare...) this movie had a sprinkling of "That's kinda funny..." and "Was that funny? I can't tell anymore..." moments.
The most telling thing I can say about this movie is that I DIDN'T FINISH IT. Nay, I COULDN'T finish it.
A friend of mine that had the misfortune of being in the room with me at the time said it best when he said: "At one point I laughed at how painfully unfunny it was and I realized that it (the movie) had pulled me down to it's level."
Of course he also said: "Another reason dumb and dumbrererererrer sucked is that both guys were trying to cop Betty White's "Rose" character from the Golden Girls but neither of them possesses her panache or supple buttocks."
Verily, it is a thing of evil.
Having said that, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen. I would have to give some thought to exactly which movie holds that dishonor. "Batman and Robin" is pretty close. But no, I've actually finished worse movies than this. Thing is, in those movies I held out hope that they would get better before the end. With Dumb and Dumberer, there was no such hope. In fact, there was utterly no hope at all.
I did get a chuckle from a couple moments though. Like when the two titular characters walk down the school hallway with their Special Ed class to the theme from the A-Team, and... well, that's it actually.
Oh yeah, Mimi Rogers made out with a little hottie named Rachel Nichols.
The most notable thing about Nichols, other than her being very attractive, is that she's in the new Bruce Campbell film "The Woods" which is currently in post production.
Apart from that "Dumb and Dumberer" can be summed up by the fact that I actually got up off my couch to remove this ultra-boring, ultra-unfunny piece of cinematic spam from the DVD player.
PS: I did put it back in to check the not-so 'Special Features', but I did not find the apology I was looking for.
Maybe it's an 'Easter Egg'.
I don't recommend checking yourselves, but if someone finds it, please let me know. I feel it's owed to me.
value. I will keep this brief--avoid AT ALL COSTS!!!!! I don't recall ever seeing anything as worthless as this. Everybody below has said it in one way or another. No need to repeat them except to WARN YOU NOT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!
The film mingles irony , chuckles , giggles , comedy and numerous sex jokes . And of course , there's very bad taste , being the extreme when happen the incredible scenes on the crap in the bathroom . The comedy is cheesy and gross-out but has some moments here and there . The film is an embarrassing and absurd mess , the plot is ridiculous and monotonous and is formed by several humor set pieces , being quite disagreeable and graceless . There are some steamy hot scenes and some memorable and hilarious happenings of dirty humor which will rejoice the rogue aficionados to these kinds of things . Neither the players , nor the filmmaking seem to be nice , and the storyline is utterly embarrassing , but , curiously , it has some amusing moments and I found myself laughing in some times of the movie . Eric Christian Olsen was repeatedly denied the role of Lloyd because the producers thought he was "too good-looking" . It was only after seeing some home-video footage of Eric in full make-up improvising a scene with already-cast Derek Richardson that they gave him the role . The cast secondary is pretty good , such as : Luis Guzmán , Rachel Nichols , Eugene Levy , William Lee Scott , Shia Labeouf , Bob Saget , Julia Duffy and Mimi Rogers . Lin Shaye was the only cast member to star in both the original Dumb and Dumber and the sequel . The motion picture takes part of the large group about filthy and dirty humor , such as : ¨Scary movie¨ , ¨American pie¨and sequels . The previous film (Dumb and dumber) is much better ; plus , there were Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey who are greatest actors , here the protagonists are unknown . Rating : It's a awful turkey . Disconcerting as well as inferior sequel and bottom of barrel . Yawner and snooze is continued.

I found only a few faults that would irritate the average movie-goer and criticizer of this movie, as they bugged me ever since I left the theater. One is that Lloyd, Jim Carrey's old part, is very controlling of Harry and is a 'jerk' the majority of the way through the movie, which really got on my nerves. In addition, Harry seemed too laid back and just let Lloyd treat him somewhat negatively. Also, there was almost no plot line! In the first 1994 movie there was an ultimate goal, a reason for the movie. In this prequel, there was one but it seemed as though New Line Cinema Stuck it in there just for spite. Thirdly, they didn't film it in the same way as the first! In Dumb and Dumber, every place the characters went, several funny things happened there that the viewer remembered later as the 'Cafe scene' or the 'beer scene'...In Dumb and DumberER, each clipping was significantly shorter, leaving the audience to figure out later what happened or why something occured, which is, in truth, an insanely poor movie-making technique that irritates.
Besides those problems, however, and despite this movie being very different than its well-loved predecessor,it's hilarious! Many parts I found myself not able to breathe from laughing so hard, and maybe you need to be a teenager as I am to fully comprehend the jokes, but it was hilarious in its own way. This is a movie you'll want to take your crew of friends to and laugh at all the sickening stupidity and overall dumbererness of the first adventures, when Harry met Lloyd. I was impressed as it excelled past the standards I set for this flick, and maybe you will think so as well. Give it a try and go see it! An 8 out of 10 stars. Fantastically humorous and, well..dumb!
So only watch this movie if you are really (and I mean REALLY) bored! Else: don't even bother to think about it! That's why I rate is 1/10.
The first and best "Dumb and Dumber" got me laughing so hard i pooped a little. Now this movie so good because the acting, the directing, and improvisation. This remains to be the best comedy i have ever seen, next to "Theres something about Mary" I officially hate "Dumb and Dumberer" They should never have remade it, and this director should be shot.
Thankyou for reading this.
Dumb and Dumberer is precisely that. The title sums it up and you really shouldn't expect anything other than rubbish when you sit down to watch it.
That said, I am surprised to see it in the bottom 100 of IMDb's lists. It is bad, but I'm sure there are many films far above it that deserve its place at the bottom much, much more.
Dumb and Dumberer could never hope to compete with its predecessor but its no worse really than any other teen-comedy-high-school nonsense. If the original movie had not been made, then this one wouldn't have gotten anywhere near the bad press it has. But, alas, it was not to be, and so this film will slip into obscurity like many ill-conceived sequels, destined to be forgotten, or talked about with ill-disguised scorn when reminiscing over the original movie.
The best way to watch this film (if you have to at all) is to try and forget the characters Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels made their own, and view it as if that first film had never happened. Also, console yourself whilst watching that there are a few bloopers tacked onto the end that are the comedic highlight of this unfunny movie, although its really not worth watching the film just for them. You might then get some enjoyment out of an otherwise bland film.
In summary then, its bad but not really deserving a place in the worst 100 of IMDb.
