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.

    Well it has the original cast so it should be at least decent and I'll give it a shot, I skipped dumb and dumberer because I didn't want to see a prequel/sequel without Carrey and Daniels.
    I'm confident that if they're going to get something right in the world of sequels it might just be this, I'm staying optimistic. lol

    As a rule of thumb, sequels almost never are. It might at least still be funny, though.

    I have a sense of humor, what is funny to you may not be funny to anybody else. Some forget to consider that.

    Point is it's funny to the same people who laugh over and over at farts and guys getting hit in the nuts
  • Nuke CAPISCE 2012/04/05 14:52:34
    Nuke
    No, I'm not a fan of either of those things and I still like Dumb and dumber, Dumb and Dumber is dumb on purpose rather dumb by mistake.
    If a movie is dumb by mistake that means the writers are stupid, if it's done on purpose then they're poking fun at the dumbness and it's smart.
    Maybe you aren't smart enough to get that.
  • CAPISCE Nuke 2012/04/09 22:08:15
    CAPISCE
    Well if you think that's smart comedy. you need not say anything else
  • Nuke CAPISCE 2012/04/10 19:49:54
    Nuke
    I didn't mean it's smart in an analytically, allegoric way, it's smart in the fact they scripted it so the characters were dumb instead of the script being stupid and without substance.
    The characters as a whole are targeted in the world or smarter people rather than everyone being dumb.
    I know smart comedies and I think you're one of those elitist snobs who think "high class" is only smart.
    This is smart for another reason all together.
    When Harry asks if the skis belonged to the woman and she says yes and then he proceeds to ask "both of them?" That is funny because after all no one is stupid enough not to know skis come in pairs.
    It's the fact that these two idiots get caught up in a scheme and "save the day" totally on accident and haphazardly that makes it so funny along with lines that make you chuckle.
    This isn't a serious movie and that's the point but again I think you missed it.

    This would be the third film, as there already has been a sequel.

    No that was a prequel and it was the studio not the same directors but if you want to get technical yes it's a 3rd movie but the only true sequel is the one being made now.
  • Gregaj7 Nuke 2012/04/04 05:37:09

    They made a second one about them in high school, it sucked.
  • Nuke JAKE~PW... 2012/04/04 05:31:30
    Nuke
    No they didn't make a second one, the directors had no part of that and it sucked because Carrey and Daniels weren't in it, the current one they're making now is a sequel, Dumb and dumberer was a PREQUEL.
    I skipped that one by the way.

    Do we really need a Dumb and Dumber 2 with worn out actors. I say no we don't.
  • Nuke belle 2012/04/04 05:33:38

    I don't think they're worn out, if you want worn out try Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy...
  • Stef an... Nuke 2012/04/04 05:41:04

    Eddie Murphy? Maybe. Adam Sander? NO. Do you know how much money he's STILL making? Especially with Happy Madison Productions... which he owns.

    They're pretty washed up, have you seen Murpheys latest abortion 1000 words? ugh :|
    Sandler has kept going downhill too although I heard that Jack and Jill was surprisingly funny by a few people who didn't think it would be.
    After seeing Sandler's movie choices lately I can't say he's quite as funny as he used to be because he like a lot of other hollywood actors are just playing the same character types over and over, it wares on a guy.
    He may be doing well with his production company but I think he's far from well when it comes to making good movies with his acting.
    Although I will take Adam Sandler over Adam Samberg, samberg is just flat out annoying.

    Fair enough, I'll respect that reply. Everyone is entitled to their own likes and dislikes.
