With Jim Carrey, there are no half measures. So you'll either love this as one of Carrey's finest moments or loathe it as a perfect example of mind-numbing Hollywood cinema. However, even the harshest critic will find it hard to suppress at least a couple of chuckles during this cheerfully moronic mix of slapstick, sight gags and toilet humour. Carrey and Jeff Daniels play two of the world's stupidest people who set off on a chaotic road trip when they try to return Lauren Holly's missing briefcase. Disengage the brain and enjoy.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. When limousine driver Lloyd Christmas gets the sack, he persuades his roommate Harry Dunne to drive him to Aspen in pursuit of an attractive woman passenger who left a briefcase behind. The daft duo embark on a variety of adventures before discovering the briefcase is full of dollar bills.
