Trailer Review - Dumb and Dumber To

Dumb and Dumber To
1st Trailer
Watch It Here

Person of Interest: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels return as the clearly aged Lloyd and Harry, and a blink-and-miss cameo of Rob Riggle.

Scene Pop: Ugh, the fingering finale.

Briggs Breakdown: 4 callbacks, 2 scenes of genitalia humor, a disastrous firework gag, vending machine camouflage (the hell?), and the asshole of a cat.

Effective?: Unfortunately yes but for only the desperate fans looking forward to this sequel.

Check it Out?: No, no, no. I'll admit I'm biased: I haven't liked the works of the Farrelly Brothers for a long, long time. Even the movies I previously liked of their's haven't aged well for myself. Even those who still like them realize that they are comedy dinosaurs: the last acclaimed movie from them was Me, Myself, & Irene, which was back in 2000! Their last three films were all terrible and their name was further diminished by Peter's supervision over last year's mammoth fiasco Movie 43. And just look at this footage! Carrey and Daniels are both badly lit and look incredibly old. The gags are either really lame or completely gross (they can't possibly get a PG-13 rating with grandma's finger-bang included, can they?). Expect this to be the Little Fockers of 2014.
