It’s not the first look at Jim Carrey’s Lloyd Christmas and Jeff Daniels’ Harry Dunne in comedy sequel Dumb And Dumber To. For that, we can thank Carrey’s Twitter feed. Still, Universal has turned to social media to debut the first official shot of the boys in… well, let’s call it "action" and just start giggling.
Carrey and Daniels are reprising their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in a sequel to the huge hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, are back for a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.
Comedy follow-ups, especially ones that happen years after the original, are tough to pull off. Here’s hoping, however, that the Farrellys can scrub the memory of unwanted (and non-Farrelly) prequel Dumb And Dumberer from our minds and replace it with a successful second outing for our favourite imbeciles.
Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle, Rachel Melvin, Lauren Henneburg, Steve Tom, Cam Neely and hopefully Lin Shaye are all on board for the film, which will (dis)grace the screen on November 14 in the States and December 19 here.
