The dynamic duo is back in the first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To. Written and directed by the Farrelly brothers again, the comedy duo brings back the original troublemakers, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to reprise their roles as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. Check out the first trailer after the break.
Despite how funny and hilarious the original is, I only chuckled a few times in this trailer. Hopefully they’re holding back the good jokes, but that’s what I thought when I went in to see A Million Ways to Die in the West. After a slew of terrible movies (Hall Pass; 2012’s The Three Stooges; Fever Pitch), the Farrellys haven’t caught a break since their first big hits (Dumb and Dumber; Kingpin; There’s Something About Marry; Me, Myself & Irene). And is it me or does Jeff Daniels look horrendously aged? The age makeup looks terrible.
There are a lot of call backs in the trailer – do kids even know what Binaca is? – but the magic doesn’t feel the same as the original. I’ll admit the gross out gag at the end made me flinch a little, but I hope the Farrellys have written something smarter than what they have been producing recently. Physical humor can only go so far, and the original Dumb and Dumber was written so well for how stupid Lloyd and Harry were in that movie. Can this sequel beat the comedy sequel slump?

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.
The Farrelly brothers produce Dumb and Dumber To alongside Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland of Red Granite Pictures. They are joined by fellow producers Charles Wessler and Bradley Thomas. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in the United States, Canada and select international territories.
Also starring alongside Carrey and Daniels is Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, and Jennifer Lawrence. Yes, you read that correctly. Jennifer. Lawrence.
Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters on November 14, 2014.
