MON­DAY

DUMB AND DUMBER TO

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, FOX­TEL COM­EDY ★★

Lloyd Christ­mas (Jim Car­rey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) will al­ways re­tain prime po­si­tions in the Stupid Movie Char­ac­ters’ Hall of Fame. Not even a lame, 20-years-too-late se­quel to the clas­sic 1994 cringe-maker Dumb & Dumber can lighten their heav­ily hi­lar­i­ous legacy. This is not to say this fol­low-up is a de­ba­cle in any way. It’s just that the dis­tance be­tween the big laughs – while the half-wit­ted heroes em­bark on an­other ridicu­lous road trip – is far too great for a movie com­edy that some­how grinds past the 100-minute mark.
