Skip to comments.Original “Dumb and Dumber” duo signed on for sequel (Starring Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels)

It's the season of long-anticipated comedy sequels! You did catch Will Ferrell's dramatic announcement of another Anchorman movie, didn't you? Now, I have even better news: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have agreed to film a sequel to that cringeworthy classic, Dumb and Dumber.
Back in October, we heard that Sean Anders and John Morris — the comedy screenwriting duo behind "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "Mr. Popper's Penguins" --- were hard at work on a script. That was the last bit of news about the project ... at least until this weekend, when Peter Farrelly dropped a Twitter-imploding bombshell in the middle of a "Three Stooges" press junket.
“We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” the director told ComingSoon.net. “We’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
Farrelly may have jumped the gun a little bit — a source close to the production tells EW that the film is “moving along, but it’s not greenlit yet.” It’s hard to imagine a green light is too far away, though[.]
Shoot, even if the chances are one in a million, we just appreciate Peter Farrelly saying there’s a chance! But, um, if Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd managed to hit theaters, then surely a sequel that features the original duo will, too. It wasn’t Harry and Lloyd we loved in the first film; it was Jeff Daniels as Harry and Jim Carrey as Lloyd. And, no, I’m not ashamed to admit I loved them, even if I did try at first to dislike the movie. It’s not exactly “tasteful,” is it? But I’d rather watch Dumb and Dumber than listen to the president insult my intelligence by claiming to be a limited government guy like he did this morning …
Lloyd: What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me... ending up together?
Mary: Well, Lloyd, that's difficult to say. I mean, we don't really...
Lloyd: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you, Mary. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
Mary: Not good.
Lloyd: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
Mary: I'd say more like one out of a million.
[pause] Lloyd: So you're telling me there's a chance... *YEAH!*
It’s “Dumb and dumberer”..*Sheesh* how dumberer can you get?
Sometimes I read the headlines and say it’s the end of civilization as we know it.
Thank the stars.....
I can stop slitting my wrists now
Humor by stupid has saved me....
FFS do I need to tag this with a /sarc
Am I the only one who does not find Jim Carrey funny?
Its Dumb and dumberer..*Sheesh* how dumberer can you get?
it’s going to be about the current President and Vice President
RE: Its Dumb and dumberer..
That one does not count. It did not have the original Carrey/Daniels cast in it.
Dumb and Dumber: BO and JB.
Funny. Dumb and Dumber is about the only film I find Carry funny.
I’ll admit, I’ll watch the film everytime it’s shown on TV. Lauren Holly was HOT!
I love it. Im not ashamed to admit it:o)
“Kick his ass, Seabass!”
Lloyd: I'm talkin' about a place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talkin' about a little place called Aspen.
Harry: Oh, I dunno, Lloyd, the French are assholes.
Great lines from the movie:
[after Lloyd trades the van in for a moped]
Lloyd: Got room for one more if you still want to go to Aspen.
Harry: Where did you find that?
Lloyd: Some kid back in town. Traded the van for it strait up. I can get 70 miles to the gallon on this Hawg.
Harry: You know Lloyd, just when I think you couldn’t be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!
PA cop: Are you aware its against the law to have a open alchol container here in the state of Pennsylvania. C’mon! Give me that booze you little pumpkin pie hair-cutted freak. C’mon!!!
Lloyd: We’ve got no food. We’ve got no job. Our pets HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
Harry: I can’t believe we drove around all day, and there’s not a single job in this town. There is nothing, nada, zip!
Lloyd: Yeah! Unless you wanna work forty hours a week.
Lloyd: That’s a lovely accent you have. New Jersey?
Lady at bus stop: Austria.
Lloyd: Austria! Well, then. G’day mate! Let’s put another shrimp on the barbie!
Lady at bus stop: Let’s not.
“Dumb and Dumber is about the only film I find Carry funny.”
Have you never seen “Liar Liar?”
I have never seen a movie theater erupt in louder and more sustained laughter than I did during Dumb and Dumber, by far the most laughs I’ve heard at a theater.
Something About Mary, Kingpin, The Naked Gun movies and Borat were close
I have and I didn’t (find him all that funny in that one)
Dumb and Dumber and maybe Mask.
Let me clarify: I do laugh during mosy of his movies but Dumb and Dumber is the one I still find funny after multiple viewings. The rest...not so much.
I’m chuckling at that clip
Love the movie.
Dumb and Dumber sequel
Does That mean Obama and Biden get re-elected?
Lloyd: “I desperately want to make love to a school boy”
One of my favorite movies of all time, but I’m not excited about a sequel, just wish they would leave a classic alone.
I think I've only seen one or two of his movies, however, I thought he was great on "In Living Color", especially as "Fire Marshal Bill."
It's not well known that Richard Pryor was one of the screenwriters.
I’ll be sure to miss it.
And featuring Joe Biden as the Beaver.
