Jim Carrey drops out of Dumb and Dumber 2
Rumor has it the studios were working on a sequel to Dumb & Dumber, starring both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels playing their roles 20 years after the first movie and Jim dropped out after deciding that the executives really weren’t that into it.
I’m kind of torn on this one. I loved Dumb & Dumber and think it’s one of the best movies Jim Carrey ever did. There’s a part of me that wants to see what they could do in a sequel. However, there is another part of me that thinks that movie stands up pretty well all on it’s own, and doesn’t really need a sequel of any kind. The chances of this movie sucking and making me enjoy the first movie less are considerable, especially when you consider the fact that the last movie the Farrelly Bros did was the remake of the Three Stooges. Maybe they lost their magic.
Bottom line, I am kind of OK either way. If they don’t do it I still have the great first movie to enjoy, and if they do make it it could be really great and worth watching.
The good part about this post is I didn’t have to look hard to find an image. Dave had this gem right in his movie t shirt collection.
