Of course, you will never get back the time you just spent watching this movie, but it is still worth it!

On December 6, 1994, the first Dumb and Dumber came out, and had people all around the world were laughing at the two hilarious characters, Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey). When it ended, no one expected that the story would be continued 20 years years. On November 14, 2014, the release of Dumb and Dumber To should have been a great success. Unfortunately for the directors Peter and Bob Farrelly, the reviews are not nearly as great as the first movie. Rottontomatoes.com shows that only 58% of the people who watched this movie actually enjoyed it and only 26% of the critics that watched it have said that it was worth watching. Rolling Stone Critic, Peter Travers said “ Time can be cruel, especially to sequels.” and another critic, Stephen Whitty from Newark Star-Ledger stated, “ The majority of it isn’t just dumb and dumber, or even crude and cruder. At nearly two hours, it is just dull- and duller.” These reviews have made me wonder if a sequel to the comedy phenomenon Dumb and Dumber was a smart move, or if it was a failed attempt to bring back Lloyd and Harry from their 20 year break.

In another light, it may not be as bad as it seems. While it may have had some bad critic reviews, over half of the people who have watched it have enjoyed it. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from going and experiencing the greatness that is Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas. Sometimes, in order to form a true opinion, you have to experience it for yourself rather than listen to the opinions of others. The story may not have the greatest reviews, but it is still number one in the box office.

The storyline is said to be about a new adventure for the two characters, Harry and Lloyd. Instead of them returning money to Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) while running from hired killers and the police, this time, they are embarking on an adventure to find Harry’s daughter that he never knew he had until recently. Harry has just found that he needs a new kidney and that his daughter could be a potential match, so he grabs his buddy Lloyd and on the way they go.

The movie is rated PG 13 and is an hour and fifty minutes of pure comedy. Or at least we hope so. Go watch it and decide for yourself whether or not this movie was a great comedy or a dull sequel.
