Farrelly Brothers

“So you’re telling me there’s a chance?”  In a recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jeff Daniels confirmed that the long-awaited sequel to 1994’s Dumb & Dumber will finally start shooting this fall, just in time for a release for the film’s 20th anniversary. Dumb & Dumber To has been in the works for quite some time, but the Farelly Brothers-helmed film ran into conflict when New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. decided to pass on the film; Universal Pictures and Red Granite Pictures then stepped in to save the day. Though the details of the plot are still a mystery, Daniels dished to Jimmy Fallon about the hilarity of seeing himself and Jim Carrey play their iconic characters twenty years later. “I’ve seen the script,” Daniels said. “It’s hysterical. We’re middle-aged, we’re not pretending we aren’t. We’re middle-aged and we’re still that stupid.”

Dumb and Dumber 2

It’s, in a word, perfect. Talk about Bobby and Peter Farrelly‘s sequel to their comedy classic Dumb and Dumber had just about reached Ghostbusters 3 proportions (a special new realm occupied by Kick-Ass 2 talk) back in June when Jim Carrey dropped out, but the pair seem bound and determined to make the film happen, and with both Carrey and Jeff Daniels back as Lloyd and Harry. Perhaps in a bid to get some real heat on the project, Bobby Farrelly fessed up to DigitalSpy some meaty details about the sequel, and they sound – this might sound crazy – actually completely spot-on. How often does that happen to a sequel? Straight out of the gate, Farrelly says that both Carrey and Daniels are set for this film, and gives fans the solemn vow that “we will make this movie.” Well, alrighty! But what’s it about?

“Before Jackass, there was dumbass.” And thus begins another marketing push for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s’ take on The Three Stooges, a freak show of an adaptation of a reasonably beloved property. Dear Hollywood, I know you’ve run out of ideas, but this is just below the belt. And don’t tell me that the Farrellys have wanted to make the film for years and years, as if that is some sort of reason that should excite me and titillate me. They also made Shallow Hal and that dismal Heartbreak Kid remake, they don’t hold any sort of cache any longer. There’s Something About Mary was a long, long, looooong time ago. If you’re a masochist or just a fan of not-good movies, check out the supposed final (oh, please, please, let this be the last one) trailer for The Three Stooges after the break.
