Dumb and Dumber

Peter Farrelly (1994)

12 Certificate


Our Score
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.


Dimwitted Rhode Island limousine driver Lloyd Christmas and his equally vacuous friend Harry Dunne embark on a disaster-fraught cross-country trip to Aspen, where they hope to reunite a briefcase with its female owner. However, the pair are unaware the case contains a $1million ransom they would have been better leaving well alone. Farrelly brothers comedy, starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly, Teri Garr and Mike Starr.
