Review

Although the script almost lives up to the title, and there's something inherently sad about watching old comedians doing old tricks, none of this really seems to affect Jim Carrey, especially not when he's in this kind of inspired form. Dumb and Dumber To goes through the motions, but does it with such energy and joyful nostalgia that we're able to ignore the film's more obvious shortcomings. The Farrelly's ideas are hit-and-miss, but when they hit, Carrey's talent elevates them to brilliant comedy. Kathleen Turner is good fun as an old lover of the two title characters.
