Dumb and Dumber To is the epitome of brainless humor – so dumb it’s funny; full of far-out gags and stupid situations (and a brilliant blink-and-you-miss-it cameo from Bill Murray). Though it may be inane and ludicrous throughout, there’s a number of moments where you just can’t help but laugh.
It could never top the original, but for Dumb and Dumber’s fans, it’s great to see these two (Jim Carrey & Jeff Daniels) back together again – and especially great to see Carrey being his old silly self that we haven’t gotten to see in years.
It’s not Shakespeare.
It’s just dumb characters doing dumb things and making dumb jokes.
That’s kind of the whole point.
