The public didn't seem too thrilled about a "Dumb and Dumber" sequel when we asked about it in April. Now it sounds like the project will never see the light of day. According to ETOnline, star Jim Carrey is backing out of "Dumber and Dumber To" because the studios behind it -- New Line and Warner Brothers -- aren't showing it enough love. He reportedly said, "I would have thought 'Dumb and Dumber To' was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."

You might recall the unoffical sequel, "Dumb and Dumberer," but this was going to be a true sequel -- made by the same creators (the Farrelly brothers), starring the same actors (Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels). It was big news when Carrey signed on for the film, because the actor is notorious for refusing to do sequels. "Ace Ventura" is the only film he's followed up on, though rumor has it a proper "Bruce Almighty" sequel is in the works. Do you think Jim Carrey was wise to back out of "Dumb and Dumber To"? Or was it a dumb move?

    Few movies are sequel material and ones that are, are usually planned in advanced.

    Dumb and Dumber was a movie that is best left to stand on its own, there is nothing new that can be added to justify a sequel.

    Except that they already made one atrocious 'prequel':

    It was atrocious because it didn't have the same writers, directors, or actors.
    Still made me laugh though, but as far as film quality goes, it was definitely B flick.

    To each his own.
