Dumb & Dumber (1994)

"I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this."- "I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver is full of shit."

Come on a cross country trip with Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey), aka Dumb & Dumber. Two friends on a mission to return a briefcase to a beautiful woman named Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) who left it at the airport. The two set off for Aspen Colorado in a over- sized van which looks like a dog. Running from mobsters and the FBI, only problem is they don't know it, and the briefcase they are carrying is filled with money to be used in a ransom for Mary's husband. The two set off an epic comedy adventure which reinvented the comedy genre and helped create Jim Carrey as the funny man of the 90's.

This movie is just a laugh out loud comedy romp with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels creating such memorable characters. Hands down one of the best movies of the 90's and of the comedy genre. So many one liners and funny scenes you wont forget. Written and Directed by The Farrelly Brothers who's works include "Theres Something About Mary", "Kingpin", and "Me, Myself , and Irene" this is the comedy of all comedies and my personal favorite of Carrey's. "Dumb & Dumber" is anything but. 4.5/5 - tom
