Eating My Way Through “Dumb & Dumber”! The Mystery Of Jim Carrey’s Chipped Tooth Solved!

Dumb and Dumber

We got no food, we got no jobs… our PETS’ HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!

With those simple words, time to wrap up this Thanksgiving weekend food marathon with a look at one of the funniest films of all time – through a culinary lens!

Time To Bite Down With Jim Carrey!

“Dumb & Dumber” film was a huge hit, one of many for Jim Carrey – and it also raised a “toothy” question: since Carrey was already a big star when the film came out, how did they do the chipped tooth special effect you see in the movie?

Easy! It Was Real!

In fact, years before the film, Carrey had chipped his tooth and had it capped, so he really has that! He simply had the cap removed for the film to make his character look more deranged!

And the film has a strange affinity for 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!

There are many funny sight gags involving food like this one.

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!”

Another funny scene is all about food.

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, like this unfortunate encounter for Lloyd….

Here is one hilarious diner scene, beginning with the “soup du jour”…

That’s a wrap on my weeklong fascination with food, which included a unique cooking method: dishwasher!

It’s real, and it works! Here is the process in full:

  1. To be honest, I could never watch that film all the way through. Carrey’s ‘excess’ was too much for me, and I think it highlights many differences in the sense of humour between two countries. Good choice for your food references though. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I will never do it, but it’s fascinating to me that is can be done and works!
