Dumb & Dumber is quite possibly one of the funniest movies ever filmed starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. The movie is nonstop laughs with brilliant writing and hilarious acting. If you want to know more about the film check out the movie review and synopsis below.
Life couldn’t be simpler for Llyod Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels). Harry has his business as a pet groomer that works out of his van and Llyod is a limousine driver. All of that changes when Llyod gets a limo job to drive Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) to the airport to catch her flight to Aspen. Llyod is taken by Mary’s beauty as he falls in love with her on their short drive to the airport. Llyod drops Mary off and just as he is about to leave he notices that Mary left her briefcase on the floor of the airport. Destined to be a hero, Llyod rushes into the airport and retrieves the briefcase with the intent to return it to his new love Mary.
Llyod returns with the briefcase to his apartment and begs Harry to accompany him on a cross country trip to Aspen to return the briefcase. Skeptical at first, Harry eventually agrees to go with Llyod because he sees how important this is to him. So Harry and Llyod set out on their adventure across the country unaware that they are being followed by the individuals who were supposed to pick up the briefcase at the airport.
The adventure that Llyod and Harry go on across the country is nonstop laughs. Midway through their journey they accidently open the briefcase and realize that it is full of cash. Since they don’t have any money with them they decide it would be alright if they just borrow a few dollars with the promise to pay it back. Of course with very little self control the two friends end up buying expensive cars and fancy ski equipment. The two end up spending almost the entire briefcase of money foolishly.
It isn’t long before Harry and Llyod arrive in Aspen and return the empty briefcase to Mary. The ending of the film leaves a little to be desired but I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it.
Dumb & Dumber is one of the funniest movies ever made. Let me preface this by saying since the word dumb is in the title twice you should expect plenty of dumb. Not only is the movie well written the comedy team of Carrey and Daniels is absolutely amazing. Dumb & Dumber was the first big hit by the Farrelly Brothers who went on to create some great movies like There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal and Stuck on You.
The year Dumb & Dumber was released, 1994, was a huge year for Jim Carrey and the entertainment world as it was also the year Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was released. Carrey would forever look back at 1994 as the year his career took off. With over thirty films to his name, Jim Carrey movies continue to make audiences laugh, cry and demand more.
