Universal Pictures has released a batch of new Dumb and Dumber To clips as well as some new images from directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s upcoming comedy sequel. The follow-up takes place 20 years after the original, as Jim Carrey’s Lloyd and Jeff Daniels’ Harry set off on a road trip in order to find a child Harry never knew he had. Comedy sequels are very hard to pull off. The problem with many of them is that they rely too heavily on revisiting jokes that worked well in the first movie, resulting in something that feels tired or too familiar. There look to be some callbacks to the first Dumb and Dumber in this sequel (Brad Bluhm returns as Billy “Pretty Bird”, for one), but I’m hoping that they’re limited to a minimum. Carrey and Daniels appear to be having a lot of fun reprising their roles, and I’m genuinely looking forward to seeing them goof off together onscreen once again.
Hit the jump to check out the Dumb and Dumber To clips and images. The film also stars Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle, Rachel Melvin, and Steve Tom. Dumb and Dumber To opens in theaters on November 14th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Dumb and Dumber To:
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.
