The latest clip from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels‘ “Dumb and Dumber To” includes a nod to AMC’s Walter White. While Carrey spent years in the mental hospital, Daniels brought in a new roommate, who just so happened to be a cook.
Carrey met him when he came back home, but the new cook wasn’t working in a kitchen. It’s a full-on meth lab, clearly inspired by “Breaking Bad.” The “rock candy,” as Daniels called it, that he was making even had a lovely blue hue.
The only thing that would have tied it in stronger would have been if they would have gotten either Bran Cranston or Aaron Paul to play the role.
It’s another sign that the sequel to the 1994 smash hit is swinging for the fences with its humor, while keeping the dim-witted heroes of the adventure as clueless as ever.
The comedy sequel costars Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle and Jennifer Lawrence. “Dumber and Dumber To” was directed by the Farrelly Brothers from a script they wrote with Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, John Morris and Bennett Yellin. Universal Pictures will release the film to theaters on Friday, Nov. 14.
