Dumb & Dumber is quite possibly one of the funniest movies ever filmed starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. The movie is nonstop laughs with brilliant writing and hilarious acting. If you want to know more about the film check out the movie review and synopsis below.


Life couldn't be simpler for Llyod Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels). Harry has his business as a pet groomer that works out of his van and Llyod is a limousine driver. All of that changes when Llyod gets a limo job to drive Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) to the airport to catch her flight to Aspen. Llyod quickly realizes that he is in love with Mary and tells her all about his plans of starting a worm farm with Harry. Llyod drops Mary off and just as he is about to leave he notices that Mary left her briefcase on the floor of the airport. Not wanting anything to happen to the briefcase of his new love, Llyod rushes into the airport and grabs the briefcase so that he can return it and see Mary one more time.

Llyod returns with the briefcase to his apartment and begs Harry to accompany him on a cross country trip to Aspen to return the briefcase. Harry being the practical of the two (if that is possible) is hesitant at first but respects his pal too much not to go with him. So Harry and Llyod set out on their adventure across the country unaware that they are being followed by the individuals who were supposed to pick up the briefcase at the airport.

The adventure that Llyod and Harry go on across the country is nonstop laughs. Midway through their journey they accidently open the briefcase and realize that it is full of cash. Due to lack of planning the two realize they could really use some money since they didn't bring any with them but promise to pay back every cent. They only buy the necessities like new sports cars and expensive ski equipment. There is even a scene where they are using cash to blow their noses during a sad commercial on television.

The two arrive in Aspen, find Mary and return the briefcase with the few remaining dollars. There is more to the ending but it isn't the best part of the film and I don't want to give it away.

Film Review

Dumb & Dumber is one of the funniest movies ever made. This of course is with the disclaimer that you have to be in the mood for a dumb comedy. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are an incredible team in this movie as their characters and performance really make the movie what it is. The Farrelly Brothers were the brains behind the writing and directing of Dumb & Dumber. The team would go onto create Shallow Hal, Stuck on You and There's Something About Mary.

The year Dumb & Dumber was released, 1994, was a huge year for Jim Carrey and the entertainment world as it was also the year Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was released. It marked the best year of Carrey's career. Dumb & Dumber is just one of the over 30 Jim Carrey movies that have been created to date.
