'Dumber & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd'
(Eric Christian Olsen, Derek Richardson, Luis Guzman, Eugene Levy / PG-13 / 81 mins / New Line)
Overview: This prequel to the Farrelly brothers' 1994 film, Dumb & Dumber, tracks Harry (Eric Christian Olsen) and Lloyd (Derek Richardson) during their high-school years, as the dim duo tries to escape the "special" classes and enter "normal" high-school life. Luis Guzman plays a janitor who adopts Lloyd, Eugene Levy plays their school principal, and Mimi Rogers stars as Harry's mom.
Verdict: To be brutally frank, there isn't a single amusing moment to be found during the movie's interminable 83 minute running time! In fact, 'Dumb & Dumberer' is merely disgusting as it piles up jokes involving various bodily discharges and the unpleasant things that can be done with them frame after sickly frame! It is quite evident that this is an opportunistic prequel to the 1994 box office hit that's as strained as its title. The conspicuous absence of Carrey and Daniels only serves to reinforce this new pictures overall resemblance to a down-market, penny-pinched sitcom!! Avoid this crap at all costs!
