"If you liked the first one, this one is really gonna bum you out." ~ Honest Trailers - Dumb and Dumber To
From the brothers who went from talented to terrible faster than you can say "Wachowski" (Bobby and Peter Farrelly) comes the sequel audiences demanded, then sorta got (Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd), then, once everyone had moved on with their lives, got again anyway:
Dumb and Dumber To
Revisit the buddy comedy that's aged about as well as Jeff Daniels' face, as you follow two idiots on a quest to deliver a mysterious package to a beautiful girl...again, only this time, it's soul-crushingly horrible.
Lloyd: Our word is our bond...James Bond.
The goofballs you used to love when you were ten or thirteen are back and dumber than ever, but now they're also old, unlikable, sexist, racist, and bizarrely mean-spirited. If you liked the first one, this one is really gonna bum you out. Now that Jim Carrey's comedy career is dangling by a thread, get ready to feel uncomfortable as he does everything short of drop to his knees and beg you to laugh at him...which you won't, since he spends the movie creepily trying to bang a girl decades younger than him, kind of like real life.
Jim Carrey: This is a message for Emma Stone: if I were a lot younger, I would marry you...the sex.
Lloyd: So this is what rock bottom feels like.
Jokes are never as funny the second time around, but that won't stop them from dusting off the Binaca spray gag; the most annoying sound in the world; the Mutt Cutts van; I.O.U.'s; "I like it a lot"; dead birds; and Lloyd having a fantasy about beating up Asian people, then hooking up with a girl who turns into the front of a truck. There's probably more that I missed.
Get ready for a script that feels like it was written in '98 and kept in a shoebox until Jim Carrey's career took a dive, full of dated pop culture references that no one bothered to update...
Billy: What'd they say in Jerry Maguire?
Cockatoo: 'You had me at hello'.
Billy: Ummm, Titanic?
Cockatoo: 'I'm king of the world'.
...and current pop culture references that aren't gonna age well (shows Lloyd pinning a corsage on "Mama June" Shannon). Echhh.
So ride along with Harry and Lloyd in a movie so bad, you won't even look up from your phone when you half-watch it on cable, when the only fun moment is Rob Riggle's body paint and the only good parts are when the credits show clips from the first movie. Ugh, did they get worse, or did I just get older?
Adele: She was rumored to be a Titanic whore.
Harry: That's a lie! Fraida never stepped foot on the Titanic!
Naw, they, they definitely got worse.
Starring Farts, Poop, Incest, Pee Pee, Spit, Snot, More Farts, Period Blood?!, Animal Farts, and Vagina Dust.
As if this movie wasn't depressing enough, can you believe they guilt-tripped Bill Murray to cameo in that hazmat suit?
Ice Pick: Best day ever. Greatest day of my life, really.
I'll bet it wasn't!

Honest Trailers - Dumb and Dumber To has a 96.3% approval rating from YouTube viewers. Geek Tyrant declared the Honest Trailer was "more entertaining than the movie itself." SlashFIlm said the Honest Trailer was "pretty great," and, in the Honest Trailer, the film is "rightfully annihilated for being pointlessly gross, uncomfortably mean, and just plain unfunny." CinemaBlend agreed with this sentiment, writing "we've seen Honest Trailers in the past that are a bit more nitpicky than most, and ultimately admit that the movie in question is actually quite good... but this isn't one of those times.... As the spot points out right from the start, Dumb and Dumber To essentially lacks any real kind of originality."
