JIM CARREY & JEFF DANIELS IN DUMB AND DUMBER TO

year: 2014 rating: **1/2
Must a comedy be extremely funny to be worthwhile? If not, then DUMB AND DUMBER TO could have something going for it after all.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back as Lloyd and Harry, and one looks a lot older… The other has a tougher time contorting into any wacky position like the good young days. And that forces the Farrelly Brothers to make up for lost time with a creative story. 

As already covered in the trailers, Carrey’s Lloyd, hospitalized for the last two decades, has played a super long joke on Harry...

A strange way to begin a sequel, and yet, if one of the boys weren’t "comatose," too much would have happened in the meantime to not make their second journey seem like a smooth continuation from the original: a road movie with everything thrown into the pot...

And this mild adventure begins with a tease of yet another highway trip where anything is possible, but the duo only make it far enough to serve the basic plot: Harry has a bad liver and needs to get a transplant, and his estranged daughter, adopted by a brilliant scientist with a nefarious trophy wife, is about to give a speech to save mankind and… well… perhaps it's not so simple!

McGuffin plot devices don't really matter since the potential humor relies on Lloyd and Harry being dumber than their surroundings, and still coming out ahead. So putting them inside a convention of young rocket scientists makes perfect sense… Although, throughout the breezy hit-and-miss romp, there's nothing to LOL at this time around, but (start from beginning)
