Dumb & Dumber To
Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathleen Turner
IMDB Rating: 6.5
Plot: 20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.
Quick Review: 20 years is a long time to wait for the sequel (One cannot count the 2003 flop “When Harry Met Lloyd“). In this long awaited (for some) version, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne set out to find Harry’s daughter, Penny (Rachel Melvin) – who was adopted out at birth by her mother, Fraida Felcher (Kathleen Turner).
The film starts out with Lloyd being locked up in a vegetative state in an asylum for two decades with Harry making regular visits until it is revealed that Lloyd had been playing a practical joke.
During the course of the film, Harry meets old flame, Fraida, and it is revealed that he has a daughter, whi was adopted out at birth. Of course, these two hero’s “man up” and take it upon themselves to go on a roadtrip to find Harry’s long lost daughter.
Some new jokes and gags in this one, as well as some of the original cast (Billy). Some will say that this one was not as funny as the first, but I have to say that this installment was a tad funnier and not as crass.
Some wonderful acting by Kathleen Turner and Rachel Melvin (who plays dimwitted Penny).
Verdict: Funny and Funnier To
My Rating: 6 out of 10
