Dumb and Dumber (1994)

The cross-country adventures of two good-hearted but incredibly stupid friends. (IMDb)

Carrey’s now-famous facial elastics and exaggerated actions are only one of many sources of laughs here: Daniels is no slouch, pulling off slapstick and one-liners with ease; the dumbness of the two is revealed in contrived but always hilarious scenes (“the town is THAT way!”), and the “bumbling idiots obliviously outwit the bad guys” situational humour is predictable but ever-funny. The plot didn’t take much thinking but it ends on a fittingly humble note. A classic road trip comedy.

6.9/10
