Peter Farrelly still has hope that we will see Dumb & Dumber To

There's nothing I want to see more than Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reunite for DUMB & DUMBER TO. The original is a film that no matter how often I watch it is always funny. Recently, there was a part in there I finally picked up on-- you know the scene when Harry finds out that Lloyd had an extra set of gloves the whole time? Stuff like that. I can only imagine how many more comedic gems with pair could crank out together.

In an interview with ComingSoon about the upcoming MOVIE 43, the conversation veered towards the favorite of the Farrelly Brothers films. Peter Farrelly talked about how the sequel came together:

"If we were going to do a sequel it was always going to be 'Dumb and Dumber,'" he told us. "There were no other movies we've made that are real sequel type movies--maybe 'The Three Stooges.' We always said that it would be fun to do another one just because it was such a fun experience and we kind of left them off where they started in that movie so it is the kind of thing you could do a couple of them. But over the years, Jim didn't want to do another one, until recently, about a year ago or so, he called us up and he was in a hotel watching TV and 'Dumb & Dumber' came on and he sat there howling and said, 'We gotta do another one!' and I said, 'That's awesome, let's do it.'"

Carrey is still in and out, but one can hope that one day he finally just commits. COMMIT JIM. Farrelly couldn't give up too much on the sequel, however, he knows that the fans will be pleased with it when it does finally make it to the cinema:

"We have the script and I will say this: I love the script but if I told you about the script, you'd be completely impressed, but if I told you about the first one--'Well, what's it about?' 'It's about these two guys that find this briefcase and they follow this girl to Aspen.' You'd say, 'Well, where's the movie?' It's not about the plot, it's about the characters. It's a really hard movie to explain to people and make them see it, but I guarantee you that it's sort of exactly like the first one. We pick up from that 20 years later, we explain what they've done for the last 17 or 18 years, we take off from that and it's just a lot of laughs. It's at Warner Bros. and right now it's being financed outside the studio, but it will be released by Warner Bros.--knock on wood--and that's all being worked out right now. "If you liked 'Dumb & Dumber,' you'll like this because it's the same and more. It's really fun."

Oh, and just so you know, the Brothers Farrelly are not ashamed of THE THREE STOOGES. In fact, if they could make another-- they would:

"It's going to make money, but it was disappointing for me because I thought it came out at a really crappy time. It came out in the middle of April when kids were back in school, they were already back from vacation, so it did really well on the weekend and it did nothing during the week because kids were in school, but I loved that movie and those three guys in it are geniuses. I could not be prouder of a movie than I am of that movie. The casting was unbelievable. A minute into 'The Three Stooges,' you forget it's not Moe, Larry and Curly. I have no regret and yeah, would I do another one? In a heartbeat. It was a ball to make."

Harry: So you got fired again, eh?
Lloyd: Oh yeah. They always freak out when you leave the scene of an accident, you know?
Harry: Yeah, well, I lost my job too.
Lloyd: Man, you are one pathetic loser. No offense.
Harry: No, none taken. You know what really chaps my ass though? I spent my life savings turning my van into a dog. The alarm alone cost me two hundred.
Lloyd: Hey, chicks love it. It's a shaggin' wagon.

Wow can't believe it's been like 20 years since the first one. I really hope this gets made! As far as the three stooges i never saw it so i can't say anything about it.

Lloyd: The first time I set eyes on Mary Swanson, I just got that old fashioned romantic feeling where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling, Lloyd.

The characters are great obviously but Dumb and Dumber actually worked a lot for me because it had a GREAT plot. It worked for me as a road trip movie and a ski town movie. It's a great script and a great story.

Hopeful for Dumb and Dumber 2, & I have to say, regarding 3 Stooges:

Having just seen Three Stooges on HBO, it was not the disaster I expected. I mean, it was really dumb and for kids, but so were the actual Three Stooges. Hell, if anything, the movie was better than the actual Stooges' full-length movies. It wasn't necessarily good, but the slapstick was perfectly executed and the actors were fantastic. The guy playing Moe wasn't imitating Moe - he WAS Moe. For such a dumb movie that was tremendous performance.
