It’s been 20 years since the original Dumb and Dumber, but from the looks of this trailer, not much has changed. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back, the Farrelly Brothers are back, and even those shaggy outfits and bowl haircuts are back.
The jokes, too, look as crude as ever, and perhaps cruder—which makes sense given that the Farrellys now have to compete with the Apatows of the world. We’ll have to wait until November to see if Dumb and Dumber To is to dumb or to funny.
