    Dumb and Dumber, which features Carrey and Jeff Daniels as nitwits traveling cross-country, is a frayed string of gags posing as a movie. Carrey, though, does literal-minded doofdom with peerless enthusiasm.

    A movie that fully lives up to its name, right down to an opening credit sequence rife with intentional misspellings and grammatical errors.

  • Rita Kempley Washington Post (Top Critic)
    An execrable catalogue of doody jokes, Dumb and Dumber is an abominable, abdominal comedy.

  • Desson Thomson Washington Post (Top Critic)
    An uneven collection of bodily function jokes, facial gyrations, sexual jibes and pedestrian slapstick.

    Carrey, I am now convinced, is a true original. In The Mask, he had the screenplay and production to back him up. Here, the filmmaking is more uncertain.

  • Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader (Top Critic)
    This is a long way from the social comedy of Jerry Lewis. The characters here are ultimately turned into punching bags or punch-line dispensers.

    The wholeheartedness of this descent into crude and rude humor is so good-natured and precise that it's hard not to partake in the guilty pleasures of the exercise.

    While I won't claim to have gone through this entire film without laughing, there are some long periods between chuckles.

    The caviar of low-brow, gross-out comedy.

    The Farrellys' knack for stupid, Three Stooges-esque comedy writ larger by an infusion of heart excels with the complementary screen teaming of manic Jim Carrey and consummate screen actor Jeff Daniels. [Blu-ray]

    ...it tickles the funny bone often enough to merit serious consideration among lowbrow comedies.

    Gross to the max but very funny, this succeeds through energy, ingenuity and -- against all the odds -- the charm of its dopey leads.

    This gleefully lowbrow film is best enjoyed by the young, and by those who can still laugh at the passing of gas.

    Well titled and, for its purpose, a total success.

    Gone are the days of John Belushi, where rudeness was raised to an art form.

    Given American cinema's current obsession with innocence and ignorance, at least this never romanticises its protagonists. They are genuinely, irredeemably, 100 per cent no-hopers.
