There has already been a prequel, Dumber and Dumberer, which detailed how the two brainless fools first met, but that wasn’t great if truth be told. However, could the magic be rekindled in a sequel?
Bob Farelly thinks so, as he recently revealed to Moviehole plans to make Dumb and Dumber 3:
“[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”I would so go and see that movie. The prequel was lame, and not a patch on the original, but I’d be willing to block the memory of that flop out in order to see Carrey and Daniels back together as Harry and Lloyd.
I know it’s a little sad but I’d kinda like to see how that pair of idiots are doing 20 years on. If I don’t ever find out it’s not going to cause me sleepless nights or anything, but I think it could be an interesting and (more importantly) funny film. Which is all I really look for from a Farrelly brothers flick.
