I liked the first Dumb and Dumber, it was just silly, stupid, and crude fun. This one is basically just more of the same.
Jeff Daniels does a good job again of holding his own against Jim Carrey, with the supporting cast doing fine, including a funny Kathleen Turner. There were some pretty funny jokes, but some not so, same as the original.
There were plenty of references to the first film, and cameos including a guy by the name of Cam Neely who is some hotshot Canadian ice hockey player, and who was also in the original. Bill Murray was had a cameo as a meth cook, but I did not realise this until just now, we never saw his face in his scene. Apparently Eric Scmidt of Google had filmed a cameo, but it was not included. Weird!
All in all I enjoyed it, but the interweb critics didn’t like it as much with only a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It made bucket loads of cash though, more than the original, and was Jimbo’s best opening weekend since Bruce Almighty back in 2003. Jimbo needs to get back to his roots methinks.
