20 years after the original, the Farrelly brothers send Lloyd and Harry on a trek to find Harry’s long-lost daughter
Based on the first trailer for “Dumb and Dumber To,” the Farrelly brothers have no intention of focusing on the mystery of where Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) have been for the past two decades. Instead, they explain it away as an elaborate, and incredibly long, prank played on Harry by Lloyd.
The stars reprise their roles for this sequel that focuses on their search for Harry’s adult daughter. But mostly it’s about the two of them, together again and getting into some of the most ridiculous situations imaginable. Based on the trailer, it’s impossible to even discern how they get themselves into such predicaments, much like the original.
One thing’s for certain, though. They’re as delightfully dimwitted as ever. This was proven by a scene where Harry called his daughter’s phone. When it rang sitting next to them, Lloyd answered it. And yet, neither of them realized the other was on the line. Harry was excited that his daughter had put him on hold, while Lloyd was excited to be talking to his dead father.
“Dumb and Dumber To” was directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly, who also co-wrote the script with Sean Anders, John Morris, Bennett Yellin, and Mike Cerrone. Produced by Charlie B. Wessler, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, and Bradley Thomas, the film is a production of New Line Cinema, Relativity Media, Red Granite Pictures, and Conundrum Entertainment. Universal Pictures will distribute the sequel to theaters for its release on Friday, November 14, 2014.
