We got no food, we got no jobs… our PETS’ HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
With those simple words, one of the funniest comedies ever is back for a sequel!
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back with more adventures of Harry and Lloyd…here is the trailer:
And just released, a “food” promo for the movie as well! Watch this and I will tell you why it’s a tasty new wrinkle to the sequel:
It’s all about the food! Yes, this new clip just reinforces the fact that “Dumb & Dumber” was a food-laden comedy hit!
Time To Bite Down On More Jim Carrey!
The original “Dumb & Dumber” film was a huge hit, so a sequel is great news indeed! The original movie also raised a “toothy” question: Jim Carrey was already a big star with the original film came out, so everyone wondered about the chipped tooth – was it a special effect?
In fact, years before the film, Carrey had chipped his tooth and had it capped, but had the cap removed for the film to make his character look more deranged!
And both films seem to have an affinity for food!
A Tasty Comedy!
To prepare for the sequel, it’s time to take a look at the original film, but in a different way: through the lens of food!
The plot of “Dumb & Dumber” was simple: a pair of dumb friends named Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas set out on a cross country trip to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner, a beautiful woman named Mary Swanson.
However, the duo are unaware of a bigger conspiracy involving Mary and the briefcase, and a pair of criminals involved in the conspiracy attempt to chase Harry and Lloyd down for the briefcase – and throughout the chase, there are sequences with food!
In one scene, Jim Carrey has a fantasy he will be dining with a beautiful woman …and here is how he handles “disruptions” from the horny Waiter and angry Chef:
“Hot! Hot! Hot!”
Without knowing it, Harry and Lloyd get rid of a hired killer, who is tracking them. Here is the infamous “hot pepper” scene from the diner, when the hired killer gets a little more “sauce” than he bargained for!
There are many references to food in the film dialogue as well:
Lloyd Christmas: All we need to do is show a little class, a little sophistication, and we’re in like a dirty shirt.
Harry Dunne: No problem, Lloyd. We can be classy and sophistic… Oh, check out the funbags on that hosehound.
Lloyd Christmas: I’d like to eat her liver with some fava beans and a nice bottle of Chianti.
There were many funny moments as the duo travelled across the country. Here is one hilarious diner scene, beginning with the “soup du jour”…
Time To Celebrate Dumb & Dumber To!
Hilarious food moments from the first movie, can’t wait to see more in the sequel! So pop some champagne and get ready for more of Lloyd and Harry’s wacky antics!
