Are you glad to know that the sequel Dumb and Dumber To is finally moving forward?

Dumb and Dumber suit shot

Long-rumored and much debated, like a creature of cryptozoology for the film industry, the sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER is finally charging forward into production with the title DUMB AND DUMBER TO.  For folks like me who prefer Jim Carrey's dramatic work and never found the original in the least bit funny, this news means just about nothing.  But there are certainly people out there who enjoyed the antics of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey and cannot wait for another round - it is for those of you that I bring this news: your wait is about to come to an end.

Writer/director duo The Farrelly Brothers recently revealed via Twitter that "you also might be interested to know that we are almost done with the Dumb and Dumber To (sic) script. [We] think you're going to like it."  So there you have it.  Obviously Jeff Daniels has his own commitments to Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" that needs be fulfilled, so he can't start shooting until sometime in the spring of 2013.  But then they'll shoot.  And then DUMB AND DUMBER TO will exist.  And I'll curl up in my darkened bedroom with copies of THE MAJESTIC and ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND until its all over.

Potential plot recap as per a recent interview: "I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them and it's 20 years later... these guys are in regular life and they're still basically children at heart.  The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he's having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys."

Extra Tidbit: Carrey/Daniels DUMB AND DUMBER co-star Lauren Holly is actually still rather foxy.

I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum where his comedy is everything to me while his dramatic side (while he is very talented at it) just got old after a while. THE TRUMAN SHOW should have been Jim's Oscar.

I'm absolutely fucking stoked for the DUMB AND DUMBER sequel.

Anything

To bring back Carrey's career. I just hope this and Kick Ass 2 are a step in the right direction for him because I'm getting sick of the family friendly crap he's been putting out.

I'm all for people having their own tastes in movies, but I can not fathom how anyone could not like Dumb & Dumber?! That is one of the best comedies ever made. I cant wait to have see characters again.

To me Dumb and Dumber is thee comedy film. When I think "comedy", my mind automatically thinks Dumb and Dumber. For them to match it, or top it would seem almost impossible to me. If they do get Jim and Jeff in it for sure in the end. If they all look over the script. It could work. I am excited either way, but I don't think they can make it better. I am amped up for this though!

YES! I'm so glad this didn't fall through. This news would've been better had I not had to hear a negative opinion over it. Why couldn't we get this story from a fan? What gives joblo?

They've never been good

I never thought "Dumb and Dumber" was ever that good of a movie, and if you look at there track record of directing movies together, they haven't done anything good since "Theres something about Mary". I think they should of stopped directing years ago...

AWESOME! The last I heard a couple months ago this movie was dead in the water cause Carrey wasn't onboard. This made my whole year! Why did he decide to do it? GREAT!

Oomph

Gotta stop having haters write these articles. They don't exactly get us purists excited at the prospects of continued antics. I can't imagine a world where people don't consider the original DUMB&DUMBER one of the funniest movies ever made.
There are plenty of dramas that you can cover, Stepenberg. Leave the comedic stories to somebody else.

Alejandro Stepenberg needs to stop smokin that Crack. DUMB AND DUMBER is the best comedy of all time, period. Why even write the article. Go watch TREE OF LIFE and contemplate your existence.
