It's been 18 years since the release of the Farrelly brothers' debut film, "Dumb and Dumber." Along with "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and "The Mask," released the same year, "Dumb and Dumber" thrust Jim Carrey into the forefront of the film industry. Rumors about a possible sequel have been hovering since October, but last we heard it was still being written. This weekend, the Farrelly brothers confirmed it's underway.

The directorial duo told ComingSoon, "We're getting set to shoot 'Dumb and Dumber 2' in September. We've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back ... We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer.' That was a studio thing. So we've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched 'Dumb and Dumber' and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it.'" But will it live up to the hype? That's for you to say.

    First of all the first one wasn't so good. The only way this one might could be better is if it stars Ofraud and Biden. It would be ironic that for the first time in their lives they wouldn't have to act.

    stars ofraud biden ironic times lives act

    It could be a classic if President Obama and Vice-President Biden team up to star in the sequel.

    Governor Romney should sing the theme song!

    The first one was stupid also.

    Calm down!
    The first one was just a classic! It would be hard to beat, but I would think this sequel will be pretty darn good with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back. I wanted a sequel to this movie for years!
  • JJ 2012/04/04 17:52:42
    I'm only saying no because I don't know as I really didn't care for the first one, so, maybe the second one will be better. i can only hope. Lol.
  • wgossett99 2012/04/04 17:45:41
    How could it be worse? What little of D&D; I saw on TV was atrocious!
  • Bear 2012/04/04 17:39:38
    Of course, since the original sucked bath water, that is not much of a compliment.
  • justsomeguy151 2012/04/04 17:35:38
    i still want to watch it cuz i love the first movie and the characters are hilarious.

    Didn't they do this. Or, wait, that was a prequel wasn't it.

    There was enough material for 1 movie. They oughtta leave it alone.

    The Hangover 2 wasn't as good as the original, but I still laughed pretty hard at that movie; I will probably like D & D 2, but my gut tells me it won't be as good as the original. It's hard to imagine a much older Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels being as comedicly goofy this time around.

    No it will be just dumb and dumber.

    I like Jim. Reminds me of a younger Jerry Lewis. So I would be cautious to say that I would enjoy D & D 2. But to match the first. Probally not. But I would watch it on Direct TV
  • kobidobidog 2012/04/04 16:02:35 (edited)
    Lets be positive. It will be for a good laugh anyway. Back to reality OK. What is really dumb is humans wanting to kill just because another human killed. Wanting to jail someone when the one jailing would not want to be jailed. What I see are humans over the top being like trusting little children with the one in the middle not able to handle it.
  • Xerxes 2012/04/04 15:56:47
    The first one was a waste; so will the sequel
  • Insanebane 2012/04/04 15:41:59
    I hope so, movies tend to lose their appeal after part 3.
  • Dan 2012/04/04 15:41:08
    But only because it can't be as original, obviously. The Farrelly brothers have proven their ability, they have the original cast, and the movie is being done bc all parties are excited to do it, not bc a studio put pressure to capitalize on the original as quickly as possible i.e. Hangover 2 or the terrible Dumberer. All the comments about the first D and D not being funny are stupid. Get the stick out of your ass.
  • Sass 2012/04/04 15:38:45
    What are you talking about??? The original was GOOD??? In whose universe???
  • James C. 2012/04/04 15:32:32

    I vote no... But who knows? Maybe they can pull it off

    Hell yes it will, it for sure as hell make up for Dumber and Dumberer..any comedy film with Jim Carey is always awesome..we need more Jim Carey comedys. Enough with the lame Jim Carey movies like "The Number 23" "The Majestic" and "I Love You Phillip Morris" More sequels of his hit movies would be great. Dumb and Dumber 2 would be a great start and hopefully they make another Pet Detective movie

    This is actually great news, at first I thought movies were going to sh!t with all the lame movies that have tortured us the last past decade

    Just knowing that Arnold Schwarzenegger is making more movies and now I find out that Jim Carey wants to take it back to the old school and bring out the sequels, maybe the world will not come to an end afterall..lol
  • PortaPocketGal 2012/04/04 15:15:17
    hard to top that winner. But might be good, too. The moniker is a sad statement of what seems to be happening to people out in the world... *gah!*
  • rivaldruid 2012/04/04 15:11:56
    Its a classic example of how Hollywood is out of ideas and needs to remake everything or make everything old in 3D.
  • cin 2012/04/04 15:08:11
    Because I personally can't Stand jim carrey now. He's always doin that thing with his face...and his voice. Or maybe I just grew up an found him deplorable after. Either way, no.
  • ManekiNeko 2012/04/04 15:01:38
    It's too damn long between real sequels.

    Dumb and Dumber is a Jim Carrey CLASSIC! It won't ever touch the hilarity of the original! I can quote that freakin movie. I can't believe it's been 18 years (it's almost as old as me!) and yet the comedy is still on point! And the pre-squeal sucked! Dumb and Dumber GIF It s okay I m a limo driver GIF
  • hudistunt 2012/04/04 14:29:59
    I voted yes, but that's because I know it will.SUCK at least as much as the first one...And there's already BEEN a sequel. Let's move on, shall we...?
  • CAPISCE 2012/04/04 13:10:57
    I'm probably in the minority here but Jim Carey has never made me laugh one single time.
  • Cimz 2012/04/04 12:35:56
    I liked the first one...second one...I have mixed emotions about that one...
  • Cindy 2012/04/04 12:25:11
    But I'll still see it because I love Jim Carrey
  • ricknroll 2012/04/04 12:22:20
    that won't stop me from watching it just because I said no. I've enjoyed most of the movies I've seen featuring Jim Carrey.
  • Hev Hellraiser 2012/04/04 11:59:36

    Possibly ._.
  • romie 2012/04/04 11:42:49
    Of coarse,Jim's probably the funniest Dudes Still alive up in the Likes of Bob Hope&Sammy; Davis Jr
  • Mercedes 2012/04/04 10:56:03
    It has a chance if they got Carrey and Daniels back
  • Osk 2012/04/04 10:50:41
    Both suck actually
  • Sylmkael 2012/04/04 08:55:20
    I wonder if they will proceed with their 'Worm Farm' lol
  • Superpepsiman20 2012/04/04 08:36:38 (edited)
    without jim carry and that other guy...it's just another B comedy dumb and dumber 2
    but wouldn't the next movie be Dumb and Dumber 3 since it's the third movie? im probally wrong but it's just a thought.
  • Devonly 2012/04/04 07:27:32
    If they stick to the formula that made the first one work they should do just fine. If they try to go over the top (eg Hangover 2), it my fall flat.
