First there was dumb. Then there was dumber. The critics were appalled, audiences were enthralled, and gross out comedy was (re)born.
In 1994, the Farrelly Brothers' IQ-less comedy proved an unlikely smash hit, ringing up almost $250 million around the world. It didn't matter what critics said. "Dumb & Dumber" had its own momentum, tapping into audiences' secret desire to see two men get their tongues stuck on ski ladders, drink urine, and soil themselves silly.
A sequel was inevitable, but it never came. Nine years after the event, here comes "Dumb & Dumberer" with no Farrelly Brothers, no Carrey, no Daniels... just how dumb do they think we are?
