Farrelly brothers serious about a new Dumb and Dumber


Dumb and Dumber
The Farelly brothers will build it, if Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will come… New Dumb and Dumber sequel could well be on the way
Back in 1998, when we were all still optimistic about that nice, fresh-faced chap called Blair and hair mascara was suddenly a thing, the Farelly brothers looked like the future of comedy. There’s Something About Mary opened the door for gross-out humour, bringing American Pie and a shedload of others bobbing along in its wake. Back then, if your movie didn’t have at least one gag involving semen, you were nothing. It really was a golden age.

Then came, well, just about every other Farelly brothers movie since. None have quite hit their mark in the same way, from Shallow Hal to this year’s risible and-not-in-a-good-way Hall Pass. It’s little wonder then, that Peter and Bobby Farelly are keen as mustard to bring back the original Dumb and Dumber team.
What with brand familiarity being the watchword of modern Hollywood, the studio is right behind them. Now what was that saying my Mum always used to say about familiarity breeding… something?
