    Everyone has piled into this dumber, sillier, more consistently funny reprise with an enthusiasm that’s infectious, and not in a low-grade medical way.

    There are gags that work, that pay off in a big way, and gags that fall flat, derailing entire sequences. Because the world around them is so absurd, the film's attempts at creating some genuine heart for Harry and Lloyd doesn't really work.

    Still, I laughed — enough to feel mortified at myself.

    The Farrellys are still not much interested in film as a visual medium, and when Lloyd and Harry aren’t smacking each other or dropping their pants, you might as well be listening to a radio play. There’s a story, but it doesn’t matter, certainly not to the leads or the good-natured sidekicks like Kathleen Turner and Rob Riggle.

    Every punchline is followed by a quiet pause for audience laughter, the lengths of which might kindly be described as optimistic.

    So maybe some of this is hilarious. Heck, maybe all of it is. It will not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it was not mine.

    The original film was unpredictable and loose and every so often gave up the aura of dangerousness. If anything, the sequel is a tepid, watered down, and at 100-minutes oftentimes boring attempt to recapture the magic but without any of the whimsy.

I hated every single one of these movies, they're not even movies, they're unfunny and sad attempt to make something new, guess what, you've failed, those movies suck!!!!!

    and junk like that and you just want a laugh then you will love this. Comedy Films are meant to be funny! so when a funny one comes out don't hate on it. Jim Carey has finally redeemed himself.

This movie is way stupider than the first movie but it wasn't as funny. There were many jokes that did hit but many of them missed too. I still enjoyed it as they brought a lot of stuff back from the first one to bring back memories. You will enjoy this movie a bit at least if you liked the first movie. Expand

However, "Dumb and Dumber to" doesn't live up to the standard it set and the comedy bits are far in between. I do like the characters but overall it fell short on delivery. Expand

I think there were only a couple moments where I actually laughed out loud, though. When the jokes don't work however, its just embarrassing and awkward to watch. This movie just wasn't clever or funny enough to be warranted. It's not the triumphant return any of us hoped for. That being said, it can still be fun to watch Harry and Lloyd being idiots. If you're willing to take it for it's faults and just enjoy Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, then its worth a watch. I wouldn't spend money on it in theaters though. Expand
