Farrelly Brothers Planning Sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER
Now, I’m really not sure what this says about me, but I remember the first time I saw DUMB AND DUMBER and let me tell ya, I have never laughed so hard in my life. I was sitting next to one of my best friends and we were both in such hysterics during the scene where Harry took the laxative that we couldn’t breathe. You know the kind of hysteria where all you can do is grab on to the person next to you and punch their arm, you’re laughing so hard? Yeah, that was us.
I never did see Dumb and Dumberer but as part of my research for this article, I looked it up and was shocked to realize that one of my favorite actors on one of my favorite TV shows is in it. How did I not know that Eric Christian Olsen (who I love as Deeks on NCIS: Los Angeles) played Lloyd in that film? Oh boy, now I really must check it out.
Well if you’re a fan of either movie, I’ve got some great news. According to the good folks over at Moviehole.net, Bob Farrelly apparently let it slip that he and his brother Peter are currently developing their first sequel.
Here’s what Bob had to say:
“[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.”
Needless to say, if these guys make a sequel, especially with Carrey and Daniels on board, I am so in.
