This is undoubtedly the best comedy in the history of the world. Monty python, airplane!, borat etc etc seem all but mediocre in the presence of dumb and dumber.

The comedy timing and performance is amazing from both carrey and daniels. The script is hilarious and there are numerous occasions when you will be stuggling to get enough oxygen into your blood as you fight histerics.

And this is not a one off, i have watched this film over 20 times ands classic lines such as;

"fell off the jetway again"

"kick his ass sea bass"

"you wouldnt happen to have a cup of warm water would ya"

"that old romantic feeling, when youd do anything to bone her"

"you dont kil people you dont know"

"oh no howd it happen (pet dying) - his head fell off, yeah he was pretty old"

"youre it triple stamp, no erasees"

"an i.o.u is as good as money, sir"

"lets put another shrimp on the barby!"

"i wanna go where the beer flows like wine"

"hey wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world"

"Just gimmme the GOD DA.M NUMBER!"

"For fast effective releif"

"Mary, I desperately want to make love to a school boy"

"look at the fun bags on that horse hound"

Never grow old. If you havent seen this film it is a crime and you need to order it today, if you have watch it again, now.

Granted there are little features on this film but the film will give you everything you need (and the uncut version is not very good). Please dont think that i am just hyping this film up, this is the best comedy ever made, it will be worth the watch, enjoy.

Dumb and Dumber is one of my all time favorite funny films. The transfer to blu-ray isn't the best I've seen to date (for a brilliant transfer see I-Robot), but is an improvement visually on the original.
As for the extra scene's, I think the film was funny enough without them and they do not reall add much extra value, infact I think a couple of scene's are better without them!
All in all if you want a good laugh, there is no funnier film for £9.99.

The film is brilliant-funny, clever and...well funny! Thats the good part..the bad part is the DVD itself. There are only a couple of extra features on offer, when there could have been so much more-ie: Commentry, documentary etc.. Also, the film is cut! Although not much is cut, its enough to be angry at..most noticable cut is when they pick up the hitchhikers-in this version..well, they don't. Also the subtitles are off, I mean, when Lloyd says 'You have that crazy look in your eyes', the subtitles say 'You have a crazy look when you arrive'..I mean whats that all about?
A great film, but a very poor DVD, lets just hope they re-release it sometime soon..

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels excel as the leads in this film which must rate amongst one of the funniest ever made. From one-liners to sketches or situations, Dumb and Dumber exceeds superbly on the main criteria for any comedy: it's funny. The plot is simple, but it keeps things moving and provides perfect settings for the humour to continue.
Whilst perhaps setting the scene for the many teen and gross-out comedies that have appeared in the last 10 years, Dumb & Dumber is still fresh and very, very funny, even after many, many viewings.
The support actors perfectly complement the leads. The policeman, the waitress, Lauren Holly and many others play their roles seriously, emphasising the goofiness exhibited by the starring duo. Jim Carrey's talent at facial and physical humour (even if you're not a fan of most of Jim Carreys other films, try this film, he plays the role superbly) is perfectly complemented by Daniels, who manages to play the dumber of the two.
Without doubt in my mind, this is the vintage film by the excellent Farrelly brothers. As I've said before, it doesn't do anything special, it just does what so many comedies fail to manage. It's funny. Not only that, it's very funny, and not just in places. It's very funny throughout.
The disc comes with few extras, which is a bit of a disappointment. However, the menus are good, the picture is clean and the film is a gem. Coupled with the bargain price, this is a must-have disc.

Dumb and Dumber is one of my all time favourite comedy films which I had only ever had on video, up until I bought this copy on DVD. My friend had bought the uncut version on DVD a while ago though it was just not the same as the bits that were added in were slightly rude and took away from what Dumb & Dumber was about, so when I found this version on Amazon I was over the moon thinking it was going to be the original version that I had had on video all those years ago. I was soo dissapointed when I realised that actually some of the scenes had been cut out of it, one being my favourite scene when they pick up the mexican hitch hiking family and sing mocking bird. Sadly this scene was not in it along with other small snippets cut off the end of other scenes. Still one of my favourite films but dont know how many copies I am going to have to but to get the original version on DVD.

Uncut releases of films are often brought out when the director regrets removing scenes or good scenes had to be removed as requested by the studio, however, Dumb & Dumber Uncut is a testament to why some scenes end up on the cutting room floor.

None of the restored scenes add anything to the film, and some actually hurt it. Most of the extended scenes contain extra jokes which really aren't any good, and I really didn't need to see Seabass hock up a lump of green and brown crap on Harry's burger in closeup.

The special features aren't anything, well, special, either. The featurette is mediocre, very short and nothing different; and Jim Carrey is absent.

I'm selling my copy and picking up the original release. I'd advise you do the same and save money.

This is one of my favourite comedies ever, when I saw this at the cinema, I was still getting my breath from a previous joke when several others had taken place since. My stomach hurt so much after from laughing so hard.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 9 December 2014
I remember when Jeff Daniels was doing interviews for ‘Dumb and Dumber,’ he stated that he had to mentally ‘dumb himself down’ when preparing himself for the role of Harry. I think that’s what anyone contemplating watching Dumb and Dumber needs to do in order to appreciate it.

Okay, so Jim Carey is the star (Lloyd) and he and his equally-clueless best mate Harry set off on a road trip across America in order to return what he thinks is a missing briefcase to its rightful owner. So, basically it’s a ‘road movie.’ Now, by definition road movies are pretty ‘low on plot.’ The ‘story’ is simply the two dumb guys moving from one daft setting to the next. Yes, it is low on story. But it is pretty damn funny. And isn’t that the main thing?

It was made at the height of Jim Carey’s fame, therefore he was somehow still fresh. If you’re looking for low-brow humour then you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Yes, it won’t tax you mentally and, by the time the credits roll, you may actually be thinking with a few less IQ points. However, if you’re prepared to trade a few brain cells in for a lot of laughs then you’ve come to the right place.

Best dead bird laughs since Monty Python’s parrot.

Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are two losers who manage to scrape a living by limo driving and dog pampering. One day Lloyd drives the woman of his dreams to the airport but before she departs she leaves a briefcase full of money behind. Lloyd manages to persuade Harry to help him take the case thousands of miles to Aspen to give it back to her. Along the way they spend the money and find themselves in lots of hilarious scrapes. The dream sequence where Lloyd fights the kung fu chef is unforgettable and the scene in the Dante's Inferno diner is equally memorable.

The uncut version features more of Seabass including his kinky underwear. The jacuzzi scene is extended and there is more dialogue between Harry and Lloyd in the van. Extras include a retrospective documentary, ten additional scenes, two alternate endings, trailers and more. Picture quality is a step up from dvd with more vivid colours and greater detail in close-ups.

It's not just the crazy slapstick comedy that makes Dumb and Dumber so memorable. It is the great soundtrack, the panoramic shots of America's landscapes and Harry and Lloyd's unbreakable friendship. So is Dumb and Dumber on Blu-ray worth an upgrade from dvd? At such a low price, yes.

I've been watching Dumb and Dumber since the 90's and cease to get tired of it's 'dumb' humour, and the wonderful gel that-is Lloyd and Harry; two city bums in desperate need of a break.

They story has already been covered many times by other reviewers so I'll skimp here and explain the 3 stars.. this DVD edition has some odd cuts. I originally owned the VHS release which had the theatrical version of this film, but this DVD is different in many scenes. Parts have been cut out, some added, some scenes made longer, and what is absolutely noticeable throughout the whole of the film is that surely 75% of the scenes are either acted or spoken differently, suggesting this may be a Directors Cut, if the editor has used different takes from the original recordings. Very odd!

Some may not be too bothered about this, but I thought i'd just point it out anyway for those wondering. I don't know why DVD companies do this - it's happend on many DVD conversions from classic films. But cut long story short... this film is excellent and I recommend it to anyone who loves Jim Carrey!
