Review
DUMB & DUMBER is a terrifically hilarious movie that mixes toilet humour and slapstick comedy and it stars Jim Carrey. I praise the performances of Carrey and Jeff Daniels, the hilarious dialogue and the funniest moments of the movie such as the dead parakeet incident, the scene where Lloyd has to pee in the empty beer bottles and the cop on the motorcycle drinks it and the other is where Harry is on the broken toilet where he has a serious case of flatulence. 

This has been definitely the best Jim Carrey movie I've ever watched and is one of my favourites.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever

  1. Really enjoyed this movie, possibly Carrey's finest work. Particuarly enjoyed the scene where Harry and Loyd sing Mockingbird song in the hotdog van, driving thier passenger crazy - this makes me laugh every time.
