I heard that the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels was making its debut on The Tonight Show last night. I’ve been looking forward to this movie for twenty years! So I knew I needed to post about it. Here is the trailer and my thoughts follow.
I remember watching the original Dumb and Dumber movie as a 14 year old with my friend Greg and my brother. There were times in the movie when I was laughing so hard I thought I would suffocate. I literally had to bend over with my hands on my knees, look at the ground and try to think about sad things in order to catch my breath. Afterwards, Greg, my brother, and I spent weeks quoting the movie and doing Jim Carrey impressions.
In fact, to this day, lines from the movie are still household expressions my dad, my brother, and I use (and I’m sure Greg). For example, if one of us is complaining about something and just going on and on about it, someone will add to their list of complaints the famous Jim Carrey line, “Our pets heads are falling off!” And then when one of us does something dumb, someone will say, “Just when I thought you couldn’t get any dumber, you do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!” Good times.
I can’t wait to see Dumb and Dumber To and hope that it lives up to the hype and the wait.
