Every bit as awkward as its title, 'Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd' is missing not only Carrey and Daniels, but also the creative spark and anarchic spirit contributed by brothers Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who wrote and directed the original.
For those who recall the laxative overdose sequence in the original D&D as a comedy classic, there's a gag here about a melted Hershey bar that I thought might make the preview audience soil itself. Bear that in mind.
Adults might've felt guilty for liking the first film, but it was hard not to laugh. Adults won't do more than giggle once or twice during the new movie, and they'll walk out feeling dumber than when they walked in.
Usually, Hollywood waits until August to empty its cinematic septic tank into multiplexes. This year, the flood has started early. And no movie could be more aptly compared to raw sewage than this film.
While Dumb and Dumber possessed a bracing, genuine vulgarity, this new film is more often merely disgusting as it piles up jokes involving various bodily discharges and the unpleasant things that can be done with them.
