Dumb and Dumber To: FILM REVIEW

Twenty years after the original, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back in Dumb and Dumber To with an 'avalanche of jokes aimed at the nether regions' says CBC's film critic.

The sequel to the '90s hit comedy is 'tasteless' and 'just plain stupid' says CBC's film critic

The laughs remain the same in the long-awaited comedy sequel, says CBC's film critic 2:53

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have emptied their heads at an attempt to fill theatres with the sequel to their '90s smash hit, Dumb and Dumber To (yes, the spelling error is intentional).

It's been twenty years since we last saw the dimwit duo, Lloyd Christmas (Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Daniels), and yet they're no wiser for their years.

Like the original, the IQ-impaired pair must head out on a road trip. This time, they're tracking down Harry's adopted daughter for a much-needed liver transplant. But don't let the serious-sounding plot fool you. The "avalanche of jokes aimed at the nether regions" starts in the first two minutes of the film, says CBC's film critic, Eli Glasner.

"As Lloyd, Jim Carrey is [directors] the Farrelly brothers' ultimate weapon: crude, rude and willing to do anything for a laugh." 

And laugh you will—if tasteless, slapstick and sometimes plain stupid jokes are your thing.

Dumb and Dumber To fumbles into theatres Friday.
