No. 1 In the US Box Office, "Dumb and Dumber To" Set To Make Filipino Audience Into LOL Mood

Right timing and right story. The directors and actors of the 1994 hilarious smash hit Dumb and Dumber all agreed that if they were to make a sequel of this cult classic, it had to meet two prerequisities. 20 years later and the wait is over. Dumb And Dumber To finally reunites Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, and the audience reception is remarkable. It opened in U.S. thetaers on the weekend of November 14, and with an earning of $38.1 million, it enjoyes the # 1 spot at the box office.
In this sequel, Llloyd (Carrey) is seen confined in a mental hospital and is visited regularly by his best friend Harry (Daniels). Lloyd appears to be in a catatonic state, but finally snaps out of it. It turns out that Harry has his own health issues. He is in need of a new kidney, and he discovers that he has a daughter (Rachel Malvin) who could be a potential kidney donor. In their efforts to find her, the duo reconnects with Harry's ex-girlfriend, Fraid Flecher (Kathleen Turner), and deals with Penny's wealthy and brainy adoptive father (Steve Tom) and his second wife (Laurie Holden).

Production of this sequel began when director Peter Farrelly reached out to Bennett Yellin, his collaborator on the first film, just like his brother Bobby Farrelly. Peter advised him of a plotline that involved Harry and Lloyd looking for a possible love child because Harry needed a new kidney. More creative people from the original team were brought in and the reunion story began taking shape.
Dumb and Bumber To offers nonstop jokes and gags, byt the Farrelly brothers note that "the key thing for people to know is that Lloyd and Harry are still good-hearted guys. But since we've last seen them, there's absolutely no mental growth, no character arc. Still, they have each other and that's enough to get them through life."

Enjoy the adventures and extreme hilarity of Dumb and Dumber To, a pre-Christmas offering from MVP Entertainment and Viva International Pictures. In cinemas starting December 3.
