For truth.

The scene where he runs into Woody again at the potato bar is just gold. From the way he completely ignores his "For 22 years..." speech, to the spastic way he runs away at the end, it's just sublime in its asshattery.

Plus, the guy's a philanthropist.

The best part of Dumb and Dumber is the lighthearted snowball fight that Jeff Daniels takes waaaay too seriously. Between this and SPEED, 1994 was truly The Year of Jeff Daniels.

I remember being bored to tears by Kingpin the one time I watched it. The only things I laughed at were Murray's increasingly messy hair, and that Freudian dream where Woody Harrelson is offered money in exchange for having anal sex with Randy Quaid. In fact, that dream is so funny that I'm still laughing about 10 years later. Fuck, I'm laughing as I type this.

For this exchange (and the performances outta Daniels and Carrey) sums it all up.

HARRY:
Boy, I thought we'd be together forever. (SIGHS) Then about a week later, right out of the blue, she sends me a John Deere letter.

LLOYD:
That's cold, Har. Give you any reason?

HARRY:
I called her up and she gave me some crap about me not listening to her enough or something like that. I wasn't really paying attention.

My all-time favorite comedy, and one of my favorite films. Carrey was never funnier after this.

Jesus yes. The turbo lax scene is great and all but this is the one that kills me every single time. And the punchline shot is really a credit to the Farrellys and their editors. The blocking of the shot and the timing of the cut is just insanely funny.

God bless this thread for making me rewatch Kingpin to discover the true awesome power of Bill Murray's Ernie McCracken.

Dumb and Dumber still remains on top of the Farrelly heap for me, I also missed out on Mary when it was playing in theatres and dig Me, Myself and Irene more. Everything else of late is just terrible.

My favorite bit from Daniels in D&D is when he's at the gas station trying to pick up on that woman who ends up being a fed. From him breaking her rear view mirror to setting his feet on fire he's just great in that scene. "FOR GOD'S SAKE JUST GIVE ME THE DAMN NUMBER!"

Too bad Carrey and Daniels haven't worked with each other since. By no means do I want a sequel to D&D but they had such good chemistry that it would probably translate into any type of film.

"Hi. We have plenty of towels, thanks."

Also, his name is Lloyd Christmas.

Surely the best movie character name of all time, no?

not to stir anything up, but molt brought up the undeniable chemistry that carrey and daniels had.

Am I making things up about hearing rumors that Daniels and Carrey never really got a long on set. I have always heard rumblings that back in Carrey's heyday he could really be a primadonna with cast and crew (not shocking at all, it is Hollywood).

Keeping that in mind, has Carrey ever reteamed with anyone professionally outside of Tom Shadyac (yeesh) and The Farrellys?

Well, I'd say it is one of the best, but not the best. I'd rank Clarence Boddicker and Milton Dammers higher on that list.

Christmas Jones- The World is Not Enough.

Denise Richards = Hotter than Jim Carrey.

"Why you going to the airport? Flying somewhere?"

To say I was obsessed with this flick when I was 14 is an understatement. I saw it a good 6 times in the theater and it got funnier with every viewing. Still the movie I throw in whenever I need a pick-me-up, although I don't own the DVD, just the VHS copy that's just about worn the fuck out.

"Are they yours?....Both of 'em?"

So I realized I don't own this movie, and I went looking and found the original version (released 10 years ago) and the Platinum Edition unrated version with 7 minutes of extra footage. If the PE is a noticeably better transfer then I might be tempted, but really I have little use for the extra footage if I don't have the option to watch the original version. Anyone have any info about this?

I doubt the rumors are true cause sometime in 1997 or 1998, Carrey was on Oprah and Jeff Daniels sent him a video greeting wishing him all the best and then ripping his tongue out and giving it to him (to play on the joke that Daniels tongue was removed when it got stuck to the frozen pole in Dumb & Dumber)

Repeated love for the dream sequence. The fight is hilarious, as is Lloyd chumming it up with the relatives, telling jokes, lighting farts, throwing a dish of nuts in his face.

I also love their entrance into the party, in their blue and orange tuxedo's, sword fighting with their cans. The "CRIPES!" Lloyd gives when Harry gets too rough always cracks me up.

Harry: (to doorman) "Oh, okay, well, put us down for four."

Lloyd: "In case we want seconds." (sprays doorman in face unknowingly)
