If you take a van that looks like a dog, mistaken identity, a motorised scooter and the Aspen ski fields, what do you get? A movie about two of the dumbest guys to ever get their own movie... next to Cheech and Chong, Abbott and Costello and of course, Bill and Ted. A couple of decades later, and we finally get the sequel to the hit that put the Farrelly Brothers on the map and made Jeff Daniels fans stand up and ask why the hell he was in this movie - Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas are back, and dumber than ever.

When Harry and Lloyd are reunited after 20 years, Harry announces that he’s sick and needs a kidney transplant. Upon discovering the existence of a long-lost daughter, the pair hit the road once again in the hope that she’s a perfect match as a donor, while Lloyd harbours a secret crush on her. Along the way, they encounter a millionaire’s wife and her lover who will stop at nothing to make sure the boys fail, ensuring her inheritance.


Basically, if you’ve seen the trailer, you’ve seen all the best jokes. If you haven’t seen the trailer, save yourself $20 and two hours of your time and watch it now. Yes, they make irreverent jokes about their 20 year absence, but what they fail to realise is that when it comes to such a loved movie, 20 years equals a lot of viewings. So when you come back for round two with all the same jokes, they simply fail to hit the same mark.

Acknowledging that you’ve missed the joke by 20 years doesn’t excuse or make up for the fact that you have indeed missed it. If you’ve long loved ‘Dumb & Dumber’, spare yourself the disappointment - or at least go in with low expectations... really low expectations. If you’re not a fan of the first film, then I have no idea why you’d want to see ‘Dumb & Dumber To’ anyway.
