Summary

Quite possibly, the funniest film in existence.

Description

Dumb & Dumber is a classic comedy from the '90's that features Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) as Lloyd Christmas and Jeff Daniels (Gods & Generals) as Harry Dunne. Lloyd and Harry are best friends that share an apartment in Rhode Island. Lloyd is a limo driver and Harry is a dog groomer. One day, Lloyd meets the woman of his dreams, Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly), while taking her to the airport and notices she leaves a suitcase behind. Lloyd decides to be a hero and attempt to return the suitcase to Mary...the only hitch is that Mary is now in Aspen. Thus, our heroes embark on a cross country trip to find Mary, and, of course, hilarity ensues.

This movie is so hilarious just due to the down-right stupidity of the protagonists. For instance, the classic opening scene when Lloyd asks a woman where she is from and she replies "Austria", so Lloyd, being as quick-witted as he is, replies, "Ah, Austria! How about we put another 'Shrimp on the barbie.'" I don't know about everyone else, but that scene just makes me burst into laughter every time I see it. And, this stupid-humor follows suit through the entire movie, leading to my favorite scene...the "I can get 70 miles to the gallon on this hog" line, I almost cry from laughter at that one.

Anyway, if you're looking for a laugh from a movie with funny guys just acting dumb as rocks, thenDumb & Dumber is for you. The movie is nearly flawless, and still funny everytime I watch it. I definitely recommend Dumb & Dumber to everyone.
