Dumb and Dumber sequel will begin shooting this fall with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels

Apr. 2, 2012by: Alex Maidy

We are only one day removed from April Fool's Day and some of the movie news seems a little too on the nose.

Case in point, Peter and Bobby Farrelly made the announcement that the sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER will begin production this fall with both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their original roles.

According to Peter Farrelly, We did not do DUMB AND DUMBERER, that was a studio thing. So we've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched 'Dumb and Dumber' and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it.'

DUMB AND DUMBER is still one of the funniest movies in the last 20 years. I can pop in the DVD or catch it on cable at any point and it will suck thirty minutes of my life. I love it. I do not think the Farrelly's have truly replicated it, mainly because of the chemistry between Carrey and Daniels.

Extra Tidbit: This will be the first sequel for the Farrelly brothers. Now that they are breaking the seal, give me KINGPIN 2!

There was a 1 in a million chance of this sequel happening, but it still had a chance! With Carrey and Daniels back, I'll be at the theater opening night. One of my all time favorite comedies.

Also, good idea waiting until the 2nd to announce that they would be doing this.

Just when I think the Farrely Bros couldn't get any dumber, they pull something like this...

...AND TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES!

One of the gretest posts I have ever read and one of the best quotes used in a post as well. Kudos.

YES

And just the other day I'd watched this, wondered about a sequel, and figured: ah it's better as a one off. I'm glad I can now discard my false standard for singular integrity.

"That's as good as money. Those are IOUs"

Even though I doubt a sequel will be half as good as the classic original, I will be first in line to see it. Even if it is half the film, it will still be far better than most comedies.

Let's hope it retains the charm of the first movie, and doesn't fall into step with the rancid hogwash of modern comedies like The Hangover.

Normally when I hear about this sort of thing; sequels coming out years after the original, with actors who are now much older, I groan and say why? In this case I really think it could work. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are brilliant. Even still shots of these guys make me crack up. I can just imagine what Harry and Lloyd are like as middle aged morons. If the script is decent, this is a sequel that could be hilarious.

Kick his ass Seabass!

Dumb & Dumber is the best comedy of all time! (to me) Watching it as a kid and even now as an adult, it still cracks me up. My only fear is that the Farrelly bros may have lost their touch since their more recent films have been duds compared to their hayday (D&D, Something about mary). Hopefully Carrey and Daniels bring back the magic and make a proper sequel that Lloyd & Harry deserve!
Also, I loved the Inception-style trailer under the article, really made my night.

This just made my week!

I agree with an earlier poster, it probably won't be as good as the original, but if it's half as good it'll be funnier than 90% of the other comedies out there.

"Here Harry, take this extra pair of gloves. My hands are startin' to sweat."

Finally!

I've been waiting for a Dumb and Dumber sequel since that time I thought Dumb and Dumberer was the real sequel and not that piece of shit prequel. Thank you for this!

Makes Sense

With the Farrelly brothers making some pretty bad movies recently and same with Jim Carey who needs a hit comedy role again, it doesn't surprise me that they would all go back to the movie that helped them all become successful.

I for one cant wait because Dumb and Dumber is one of my all time favorite comedies!

I totally can't see this happening I mean, the guys are way too old to capture the magic that made the first one great. D&D strictly belongs to the 90s with no sequel.

(anytime now..)

Normally I would agree with you. The idea of bringing back Riggs and Murtaugh for another Lethal Weapon is a poor idea for exactly the reasons you mention, but comedy is much more foregiving. If the material is good and the energy is still there, I would love to see the nitwits these characters have "matured" into.

"We called it a Bullshit."

I remember watching this in theaters when I was 10 and I agree with everyone who posted that it still retains its comedy even after all these years. I hope the sequel revolves around Harry and Lloyd running their dream shop, I Got Worms.
