Out of all the Jim Carrey sequels/prequels that do not star Jim Carrey this one was the best. Son of the Mask was terribly unfunny and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Jr. was a simple cash grab but it come to a surprise that I actually enjoyed Dumb and Dumberer and got genuine laughs out of it. Eric Christian Olsen does a solid Jim Carrey impersonation and has genuine chemistry with Derek Richardson. Eugene Levy and Cheri Oteri are a funny duo and their characters relationship is a strange yet funny relationship. It is of course not as funny as the original with Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey but it is worth a watch if you want a laugh or two.
They didn't even bother with new material, opting instead, to simply rehash jokes from the original... Probably just as well, since the jokes they did try are as flat as Olsen's hairdo. Dont bother... "Lloyd Christmas: There's gonna be chicks all over us. It's gonna be so faggy, I don't think I can stand it."
Dumb and Dumberer has a few laughs especially with the chocolate-poop joke and that Bob Saget guy reacting the way you'd expect him to but this is one of the comedies you'll like for all the wrong reasons. The two actors try their best to recapture the charm of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and Eugene Levy is decent but it never has the insanely funny approach of the 1994 classic. It has a thin, predictable plot and more than half of the time the jokes were mostly cringey. Yes, I know I shouldn't expect some very witty dialogue from a movie called Dumb and Dumberer but even the sequel had some laugh-out-loud humour. While I'm mostly into dumb comedies since I'm a bit of an Adam Sandler fanboy and laughed my ass off at a couple of Seth Rogen movies, this one was a disappointment. It lives up to its title and I obviously don't mean that in a good way.
This movie was beyond stupid.... not to mention the lack of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. If i was you i wouldn't bother with this, I wish i could get the 90 minutes of my life back that i wasted on this movie.
