Universal Pictures have today released the teaser trailer for their upcoming comedy film Dumb and Dumber To. The long-awaited follow-up to 1994's cult hit Dumb and Dumber will bring back both members of the series' beloved original cast, namely The Truman Show's Jim Carrey (we're referencing that classic motion picture as most of the actor's output since then has been largely inferior) and The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels, for more slapstick comic antics later this year.
If it's a comedy masterpiece on the scale of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues or School of Rock which you're seeking in Dumb and Dumber To, then we'd strongly advise that you take your attention elsewhere, since the crass gags on show here leave plenty to be desired. Perhaps it's just a personal preference on the part of this writer, but this one looks to recycle every generic trope in the book, and unless some of the best jokes are being held back for the first viewing (a growing rarity these days), we'd sincerely doubt that the majority of viewers will feel as if they've received their money's worth in this case.
Dumb and Dumber To will awaken from its amnesia-induced coma in cinemas worldwide this November 14th.
