Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels play the title roles (though viewers may find themselves debating which is which) in this genially low-brow comedy. Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are two intellectually-challenged best friends who share an apartment so messy that gangsters aren't sure how to trash the place; the guys also have a certain problem (not difficult to understand) holding on to jobs. Lloyd is working as a limo driver in Rhode Island when he picks up a beautiful and wealthy woman named Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) who is being taken to the airport. Lloyd immediately falls head over heels in love with Mary, and when she leaves a briefcase at the airport, he's determined to return it in hopes of impressing her. Lloyd isn't able to get aboard Mary's flight (though not for lack of trying). Harry has a van decorated to look like a dog (to promote his failing dog-grooming business), and the pair hop in the Poochmobile to find Mary in Aspen. What Lloyd and Harry don't know is that the briefcase is full of money, which Mary deliberately left at the airport as a ransom payment to save the life of her kidnapped husband. Incidentally, Lloyd's chipped front tooth happens to be real; while Jim Carrey had the injured tooth capped many years ago, he thought a broken smile would suit Lloyd's character and had the cap removed for the duration of filming.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
When the dunderheaded duo of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) first arrived on the big screen during the 1994 holiday season, their lovably lame-brained antics helped make this comedy an unexpected hit. It also instantly turned sibling filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly into hot Hollywood comedy commodities. This new Unrated Edition adds more than ten minutes of heretofore unseen footage to the film and additionally presents (as extras) two alternate endings and nine deleted and/or alternate scenes. As the story opens, Lloyd is working as a limo driver who takes wealthy, beautiful Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) to the local airport. When she leaves her briefcase in the terminal, he retrieves it and, accompanied by Harry, drives cross-country to Aspen to return it to her personally. What they don't know is that the briefcase, bulging with cash, was deliberately left behind by Mary as a ransom payment to the kidnappers of her husband. Dumb and Dumber is exactly what its title suggests -- a goofball comedy with zero pretension to high art. Carrey's brand of rubber-faced, loose-limbed physical comedy is well deployed here, but what's still surprising is how closely Daniels keeps up with his more facile costar. The two of them work extremely well together, and Holly -- at that time, Carrey's girlfriend -- makes a charming foil. No doubt you've seen this film already, perhaps numerous times, in various TV airings. But the extra footage on the 2006 Unrated DVD edition -- including 40-plus minutes worth of deleted and alternate scenes -- is definitely worth an upgrade for Lloyd and Harry fans.
All Movie Guide
No one can accuse Dumb and Dumber of holding anything back: If you're going to make a slapstick movie that includes giving a dead bird to a blind kid, you might as well do it right. The movie cemented Jim Carrey's status as a full-fledged Hollywood star; the enthusiastic Jeff Daniels is perfect in the role of his amiable companion. Brothers Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly concoct truly memorable, laugh-out-loud comic moments. As with the brothers' infamously funny There's Something About Mary (1998), Dumb has something of a heart beneath all the silliness and laxative jokes. Their scattershot approach to comedy produces more than a few misses, but for crude, unabashed slapstick fun, Dumb and Dumber will not disappoint.

When I first thought about seeing the movie, I was thinking this is going to be the dumbest movie I have ever seen. But the moment the movie started I was in tears laughing at some of the stupid things that occur. And there is not really any really slow parts in the movie because it kept me laughing. I recomend this movie to a person who is looking for a crack up kind of movie.This movie is certainly not for the person looking to go see a serious or heart touching movie. So overall, I think you should see this movie becuase I think you will enjoy it.

Within the first fifteen minutes of this movie, I was lost in laughter. Not only did this movie contain an excellent storyline, but it had some of the best comedy that I have ever seen put into one movie. Jim Carrey is at his best performance in this movie and Jeff Daniels only adds to the non-stop humor. I can't think of anybody else who could have filled these parts better than these two guys. No matter what mood your in, this movie will knock your socks off with it's hilarious antics, crude puns, and a seemingly endless barrage of humor and jokes.

Excellent funny buddy comedy tha as I said is like ''Some Like It Hot''. Both films have very similer plots and both involve idiots who are being chased by criminals. There are quite a few great scenes in this movie like the infamous ''Toilot Scene'' and the dream sequence that lets you look into the mind of an idiot.

YEA! This movie was really good. It was so funny, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels made a great team for this film. The Farrelly Brothers make awesome movies, time and time again. This movie is so good because, for me, I seem to know people kind of like that. There are plenty of funny one-liners and it's really funny the way they interpret one another. The funniest part to me has to be when he's leaving the bar waiting for Mary, just watch for it, it's hilarious.

Dumb and Dumber is not as good as Ace Ventura Pet Detective, The Mask or The Truman Show but it is funny and the best scenes are when Jim Carrey's and Jeff Daniels' characters are on the road and when Jeff Daniels' character meets Lauren Holly's character and goes skiing with her and uses the toilet in the guest bathroom in her house not knowing that the toilet is broken and won't flush.

Dumb and Dumber is a cute comedy movie starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as two dumb guys and I enjoyed watching it. Perhaps not Carrey's funniest but still provides some good laughs.

Dumb and Dumber starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, is the hilarious story of Harry and Lloyd and their adventure from nowhere- nobody losers, to the destination of cool, Aspen Colorado. It's really funny and impossible to forget.
