Fantastic film - but what's with these DVD cuts??,
This review is from: Dumb And Dumber [DVD]  (DVD)
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!
