Performers, Cast and Crew:
Lowbrow buffoonery hit commercial highs with 1994's DUMB AND DUMBER. When best friends Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey, in a star-making role) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) both get fired, Lloyd convinces Harry to travel to Colorado to search for his dream woman, Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly). Little does Lloyd know that Mary's in Aspen trying to find her kidnapped husband. Soon the two have gotten mixed up in the crime, and their wacky exploits are leading the FBI straight to the crooks. The Farrelly Brothers are at the peak of their twisted craft with this gutbusting comedy.
The 2003 prequel DUMB AND DUMBERER puts new faces in the lead roles for more slapstick hilarity, imagining the immortal meeting of the mindless when Harry Dunne (Derek Richardson) and Lloyd Christmas (Eric Christian Olsen) were high schoolers. After becoming fast friends, the pair of future dog groomers are recruited for a special needs class. Unfortunately, this class is not a radical educational experiment. Rather, it's a moneymaking scheme exploiting Harry and Lloyd's intellectual deficiencies. The conniving Principal Collins (Eugene Levy) has singled out the two clowns to boost special needs enrollment--a scam to bring more educational funds to the school. Collins plans to use those funds to supplement an exotic vacation with his mistress, the lunch lady Mrs. Heller (Cheri Oteri). When Mrs. Heller is put in charge of the class, a news staff student, Jessica (Rachel Nichols), begins to investigate. Using the witless duo for inside information, Jessica becomes an oblivious object of affection for her sources Harry and Lloyd.
