Farrelly Brothers Talk Dumb And Dumber-er (Or Something)

    March 1, 2011 at 8:00 am

    Fresh off one good week for their new movie Hall Pass, the Farrelly Brothers are talking “dumb”…Dumb and Dumber that is! How was that? Did that sound super cheesy, Access Hollywood like? I’ve been practicing. I want to learn to hate myself more so I’m only talking in entertainment news sound bytes. I’ll work on it.

    Oh right, the Farrelly Brothers.

    Speaking to Bob Farrelly at the “Hall Pass” junket in Sydney this morning, the filmmaker – one half of the veteran comedy duo known for their ridiculously over-the-top laffers, “There’s Something About Mary” and “Kingpin” – let slip that he and his brother Peter are currently developing their first sequel. “[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion.

    It took about three minutes to find out Carrey and Daniels having nothing else going. Well, nothing bigger than a sequel. Sequels are huge on money and short on originality. Who cares. I never go to the movies anyway. Do a sequel to every movie for all I care, I’ll skim by it on cable.

    “We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”

    It would look something like this I’d imagine.
