I don’t think I’ll ever identify ’90s comedy with anybody more than Jim Carrey. Like Tins, I still call Ace Ventura: Pet Detective one of my favorite comedies of all time. Dumb And Dumber? Also near the top of that list. When news broke that a proper sequel, actually starring the movie’s original actors and not a pair of nobodies, was in the pipeline, I was intrigued.
Ah, but the whole taboo of making comedy sequels. Sometimes it works, but mostly, it doesn’t, especially when 20 years have passed. Still, as the following trailer indicates, that fact isn’t going to stop Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels from trying their hardest to rekindle some of that comedic chemistry.
Confidence? Ehn. From the first 2:40 we’re allowed to peek, this could very well be a case of both actors (now in their 50s) needing a quick paycheck rather than an actual desire to continue a proud comedic tradition. We’ll see when it hits theaters November 14th.
