Quick Thoughts on Dumb and Dumber To trailer(movie coming soon)

Before we get into the trailer, let’s first check out who’s behind Dumb and Dumber To. The Farrelly Brothers have returned to direct, but there are way more writers this time around, but then I’m sure the budget is bigger, too, and that’s what happens, man. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are both there, so we know we’re getting the Dumb and Dumber essence. Kathleen Turner is also in this movie for some reason, so that has my curiosity peaked – not to mention Rob Riggle… I just like Rob Riggle. But now, the trailer: does the movie look promising?

Uhm, sort of. It looks like all the elements are there… but then, it’s hard to escape the fact that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels look really old. I mean, I guess they are kinda old, and you generally don’t see older folks in these sorts of movies and the first Dumb and Dumber is so imbedded in my mind, so I expect these characters to still look that way, but obviously, they don’t. As for the comedy… it’s looking kinda hit and miss. No, I’m being too harsh. I don’t need that last bit with the lady at the nursing home (are there really old people in this movie to make Carrey and Daniels look young by comparison?), but otherwise, it looks like we’re going to get what we want from a Farrelly Brothers movie.

I think the most important thing here is to not let your expectations get too high. I’d have to say that Dumb and Dumber To looks promising, but I probably don’t need to see this in the theaters.

  1. I also like the idea that we (the audience) didn’t miss anything as they haven’t been together for the last 20 years – good idea!
