Director Troy Miller follows up the little-seen Mr. Show movie Run Ronnie Run! with this prequel to Dumb and Dumber, the 1994 box-office smash that starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and launched the careers of writer/directors Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly. For the follow-up, we're taken back to 1986 when Lloyd Christmas (Eric Christian Olsen) and Harry Dunne (Derek Richardson) first met while in high school. Dissatisfied with their being stuck in remedial classes, the dense duo sets out to prove that they can attend classes with their peers of normal intelligence. Along the way, they encounter a greedy principal played by Eugene Levy and a friendly janitor played by Luis Guzman who takes Lloyd under his wing. Along with Mimi Rogers as Harry's mom, Mrs. Dunne, Dumb and Dumberer also features performances by Rachel Nichols and Cheri Oteri. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

nice try, didn't work by crazyjohn June 24, 2004 - 9:31 AM PDT

The original D&D is a classic comedy. The connection between the two characters works well.

In this prequel, they certainly did a good job with the casting of Harry and Lloyd, but gave them a subpar script from which to work. The storyline feels disjointed, like there are things missing. The jokes barely work (and sometimes don't). Although I typically like crude humor, they overdid it in scenes, and just flat out flopped in it's inclusion in the story.

The three savings graces (IMHO) of this movie are:
1. The casting choices of Harry and Lloyd
2. Shia LaBeouf's inclusion
3. The attractive co-star, Rachel Nichols.

Beyond that, this movie is a waste of time.
