The quick answer, pretty damn dumb. You might be hard pressed to find a comedy more beloved as Dumb and Dumber. The king of slapstick buddy comedies, lead by an almost too funny to believe Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Fans wanted a sequel then and never got one. Instead they had to be content with bad spin offs like a prequel and a cartoon series. Maybe if those spin offs were successful, we would have seen this earlier, but it seemed Harry and Lloyd were well past dead. However, almost 20 years later fans will finally get what they asked for so many years ago. Did it stand the test of time?
The story kicks off 20 years after the end of the first film. If you recall, the original Dumb and Dumber was an adventure for Lloyd to find true love. It doesn’t quite work out for him. As a result, he ends up in a mental institution. He is in a complete catatonic state, not communicating with anybody. Harry being his loyal friend visits him frequently, always hoping Lloyd will “snap” out of it. Finally, Lloyd starts to utter some words, and his very first words happen to be “Got Ya!”. he faked it for 20 years just for a gag, and that is our first reintroduction to the not so glamorous world of Lloyd and Harry.
