Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

Twenty years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption. (IMDb)

The writing here couldn’t be more contrived; cringe-worthy joke set-ups (rarely laugh-inducing) dominate the film’s comedy landscape that’s filled out by obviously desperate attempts at recreating the original’s outrageous visual/situational humour, while the plot’s movements are painfully stiff. There are good moments (the final twists are great) and the then/now slideshow in the end credits is remarkably redeeming, but up until then the film mostly fails to hit its mark.

5.6/10
