This film is a spectacle. Momentous in its visuals, intriguing in its structure, surprisingly poignant in its characters. Its a big-budget film, slick solid and well-paced with a great original screenplay and high-caliber acting.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have inventive banter, run around, get chased, and dodge bullets in the surprisingly fun first hour.
If films were measured by a Wheel of Intelligence, Dumb and Dumber is so stupid it would fly straight past Idiotland (ruled by the narrowminded Dictatorial Tyrant TC) and straight into Geniusville (population: LCD).
This film has to be seen to be believed. It’s pure cinematic spectacle with a big heart. Too long and complicated for kids, and too colorful and fast for adults, this film got a bad rap. But look past the reviews and you’ll find a treasure trove of sights and sounds.
Sometimes you want a friend to watch a movie for the rush of sharing a meaningful theatrical experience with them. Other times you want that friend to watch a movie purely for the enjoyment of watching them writhe in agony.
