A mindless flick
The movie “Dumb and Dumber To” starred Jeff Daniels as Harry Dunne and Jim Carrey as
Lloyd Christmas for the third installment of the prolonged series. The movie also stars Laurie Holden as Adele, Racheal Melvin as Penny Pichlow, and Rob Riggle as Travis and Captain Lippincott.
The movie is supposed to take place 20 years after the events of the first film. The film starts out with Harry visiting Lloyd in a mental hospital and Lloyd reveling that he pulled a prank on Harry for those past 20 years.
The plot of the movie is Lloyd finding out that Harry needs a kidney. Harry also discovers that he has a daughter named Penny through a letter from a woman that he had a one night stand with 20 years earlier. Harry figures that he could ask his daughter that he barely knows and just met, for a kidney.
The movie is packed full of crude, slapstick, and obnoxious humor. It had some action such as scenes involving cars and some fighting scenes.
One of the problems facing Harry and Lloyd is Lloyd finding his friend’s daughter attractive and not being able to hide it very well. That led to a scene were Harry and Lloyd almost lost their friendship.
The ending of the movie was a lot like the beginning. The movie followed two different character goals, one involved Harry trying to know his daughter better and the other involved the villains of the movie hoping to gain money off of a wealthy man’s death.
The tone of the movie was humorous and carried the subtype of a raunchy comedy.
Overall, I would not recommend this movie. The movie did not include any logic, which made it hard to watch. I recommend that those who chose to watch this movie watch the first one in order for this movie to make any sense. The first movie was dumb and the second movie was dumber.
Audience, on your way out of the movie theater, be prepared to lose a few brain cells from this movie.
