Why “Dumb and Dumber To” Was Necessary.

It’s been too long…
Right now in Hollywood there’s a serious shortage in classic comedies. Superheroes, chick flicks, and kid’s movies have taken over the big screen. That’s great and all but what people are missing is a full out laugh your pants off comedy.
Remember Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd back in 2003?! Hollywood knew fans were demanding a sequel and they’ve finally got one. It took over 20 years to convince Universal Studios to push out a sequel of the original film with a returning cast including Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as well as the entire creative team.
Despite a 20 year gap, movie goers went crazy during the first weekend of the release, bringing in a whopping $38,053,000. This hilarious adventure brings back some reoccurring themes, signature spazz moments from Harry and Lloyd, and even the big ole’ fuzzy dog van! Oh.. and we forgot to mention that Harry has a daughter now; pretty weird.  
Rotten tomatoes gave the film a review of 26% with an average rating of 4.4/10 and Roger Ebert slapped them with 2 Stars. It’s rare that a sequel outshines the original but all that matters is the support you get from your diehard fans which Dumb and Dumber To clearly received.
