Oh for the love of—look, Hollywood, this has got to stop. Seriously. We need to huddle up here and talk this out. This is not necessary. The world does not need a sequel to a 17 year old Jim Carrey film. Really, it doesn’t. The last time this happened, we got Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls, ok? So, to recap, please don’t do this—we do not need Dumb and Dumber 2.
Unfortunately, Hollywood disagrees.
Now that the Farrelly brothers have wrapped up their oft-discussed and highly unnecessary Three Stooges film, rumors have begun to rumble that they are moving to their next project, a not often discussed and even more unnecessary Dumb and Dumber sequel. And guess who else is down for it? Jim Carrey. And since his latest string of films haven’t exactly set the world on fire, it looks like the man who made a name for himself by talking from his anus will return to that comedy well, doing all that weird rubber-faced stuff that was funny in 1994 when you were 12 years old.
The Farrelly brothers have also stated that they plan to direct the film, and that “Sean Anders and John Morris, whose credits include Hot Tub Time Machine, Sex Drive, and the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy I Hate You Dad,” will pen the script. Oh, good. This just sounds better and better.
What do you think of a Dumb and Dumber sequel?
