Dumb and Dumber To: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

SM Cinema launches an early Christmas treat for it loyal patrons as it held another Free Movie Day last Saturday. With a lot of free movies to choose from; we decided to watch the reunion of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber To. 

The film starts with Llyod (Jim Carrey) admitting that he stayed for the last 20 years in a psychiatric hospital just to play a joke on Harry (Jeff Daniels.) When they finally get on with their lives, Harry told Llyod that he needed to find a donor for a kidney transplant. To find a match, Harry returning home with his family, he found out that he already had a grown daughter who was placed for an adoption two decades ago. Soon, the two embarks on a journey to find his daughter and finally meet her. 

The film has a lot of comedic jokes to offer; however, some aren't funny and somewhat offensive. There are some moments where you'll appreciate the effort brought by Carrey and Daniels, who reprises their dumb roles. Together they bring the charisma in the movie to make it work and entertaining. It's pretty obvious that they still had it even this sequel is a bit long overdue in the first place.

Overall, Dumb and Dumber To isn't a bad movie after all despite having more negative reviews from the critics. It still had the charm and made us reminisce the good all days when Jim Carrey reigns supreme when it comes to comedy films. We had a good time watching it but not memorable enough to be an instant classic like the first one.
