Dumb & Dumber
1994
**½
Director: Peter Farrelly
Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly, Teri Garr, Karen Duffy

When a beautiful woman forgets a suitcase at the airport, Lloyd and Harry drive across the country to return it to her. What these two dim-witted friends don’t know is that the suitcase is filled with ransom money and the kidnappers are on their heels. The Farrelly brothers became a household name with this modest but very popular comedy. The gross-out gags were something new at the time, but seem rather mild by today’s standards. The central performances are good but the movie is long and poorly paced. Followed by a prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003) and a sequel Dumb and Dumber To (2014), which features the original cast.
