Dumb & Dumber Sequel on the Cards


Speaking to Bob Farrelly at the “Hall Pass” junket in Sydney this morning, the filmmaker – one half of the veteran comedy duo known for their ridiculously over-the-top laffers, “There’s Something About Mary” and “Kingpin” – let slip that he and his brother Peter are currently developing their first sequel.

“[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.”

I am 150% down to see the original duo team up again all these years later. I think done right it could be huge.

I've probably seen the original 20 times and it's still funny.

Not entirely sure if Jim can pull it off again though...its like Sandler trying to go back and play Happy Gilmore.

I bet Sandler COULD go back and play Happy Gilmore. He just refuses to and likes to put out bad romcoms with actresses way out of his league.

They can do this. I've wanted a real Dumb and Dumber sequel for years. I want this to become a reality.

Sometimes, things should be left untouched. I doubt now in today's comedies, they will be able to pull off the same atmosphere they gave us in the original.

See thats what im saying.

Can he do it? Probably. But will it be the same since we know him differnt now? probably. That along with how film making has changed. Back then it was get it on tape, make it funny, and your gold. Today its about perfection. How perfect can you be, how visually good is it, how is the acting, etc...its not "fun" anymore and they wont be able to get away with "fun" anymore.

If could be amazing! Something just sounds right about a Dumb and Dumber sequel 20 years on but i personally wouldn't want to see a Happy Gilmore sequel made.

I just hope to god they don't make it in 3D!

Id be interested if its the original cast. Otherwise we learned our lesson. Also it needs to be as good, if not better, as the first or you will totally destroy the entire franchise. if its good, then you have future options. if it sucks again, well lock it up in a vault and forget about it.

Doesn't sound like they'll move forward until they are comfortable with the material. It's so early in stages that I'm not even going to worry about what's happening. Next year when Stooges is out (hopefully) they should have some actual info for us.

If I remember correctly, they tried to make a prequel to the movie, but it failed miserably. Good thing, it didn't include the original cast. Hopefully, if they get the same cast, they bring back the magic.
