Let's start out by saying that I am a huge fan of the first Dumb and Dumber and could easily re-watch that movie right now and be happy with it. That being said, this one is almost irritating.
The story is basically the same as the first one. Lloyd and Harry have to go to great lengths to deliver a package somewhere and some villains are attempting to stop them from doing so. They eventually succeed in their mission by the dumbest decisions imaginable being the only thing that the baddies wouldn't predict. The critical response to this movie can be summed up in this statement: "the film had its moments, but there just wasn't enough of them."
I think that after a while the idiocy and stupid giggling of Jeff and Jim start to actually be annoying in the sequel. Perhaps we have evolved as humanity, but I doubt it.
Since the focus of the movie is of them being complete morons, it only stays interesting for a while. I don't really know how to describe it but basically they just redid the first movie and it wasn't necessary. I was surprised at first, and them amused to find out that this movie actually won an award. It was the "Worst Male Images in a Film" award.
this is actually from the first film and Duff, this lady, might be the worst actress of all time
There are plenty of cameos in the movie, the best one being Bill Murray, who says only one line and doesn't even make his presence known because he is wearing a mask. Cameos were not enough to save this film though. Perhaps we were all "dumbed" out from the first one. 20 years passed between the 2 films and i certainly hope there is not a third and I say this not just because Carrey has become box-office poison and apparently has completely lost his mind.
I wouldn't count on it though, because: money. D&D2 made a bunch of it despite being terrible.
I agree with the overall consensus of this movie having its moments and if you watched the trailer you already saw most of them. I can't give this movie much, but i suppose it is still better than staring at the wall, but only just.
3.5 / 10
and at least 1.5 of this is because Rob Riggle is actually quite good in the movie.
