Entry #4- Dumb & Dumber (1994)


Director: Peter Farrelly

Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly

“Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?”–Lloyd

Story/Plot: The story focuses on two idiots who are down on their luck and lose both of their jobs. Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are going nowhere until Lloyd’s love, Mary (Lauren Holly), leaves her briefcase at the airport. This inspires the two to take the briefcase back on a cross-country journey from Providence, Rhode Island to “A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Aspen.” The boys head to Aspen, Colorado to deliver the briefcase to Mrs. Swanson, but along the way, the boys face circumstances that derail them such as Lloyd not paying attention and a gang trying to cut them off. The boys make it and use some of the dough in the briefcase on themselves. In the end, Harry and Lloyd return the briefcase and make a dumb decision that makes me mad everytime and wonder “Why did you say no to that?”

Why I Recommend Seeing Before You Die: I recommend seeing Dumb & Dumber because this is Jim Carrey at his best and because this movie is hilarious. Dumb & Dumber is still my favorite comedy and I still die from laughter every time I watch it. The quotes in this movie are stupid, but funny. I think anyone who has seen this movie knows at least one quote from it. I mean there’s the diner scene quote (“Kick his ***, Seabass”) or when Lloyd and Harry are on their way to Aspen (Harry: I was expecting the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this. Lloyd: I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver’s full of ****, man). If the quotes doesn’t make you laugh, then the two’s crazy antics will. There are plenty of examples such as: Lloyd giving Harry laxatives for trying to get with Mary, Larry spilling gas on himself while talking to the detective, or the guys giving a blind kid a dead bird as a pet. That’s awful, but you know your just as guilty when the kid pets the bird while saying “pretty bird” and you start laughing at the thought of what they had done. If you haven’t ever seen this movie, please do so. You won’t regret it all. Here are 3 links to clips to view and if you haven’t seen the movie, you will want to because all of these clips are hilarious.                  (Urine trouble)             (The most annoying sound in the world)                  (Atomic peppers)
