Howdy ladies and gents and welcome to a new trailer review. It feels like an eternity since I wrote about something film-related on this blog, but now I’m ready to talk about a new trailer from a film I’m interested in seeing later on this year; Dumb and Dumber To.
Check out the trailer below:
So my first thoughts after seeing this trailer? This looks alright.
Now I don’t care much for comedy films (most people who read this blog will know that already), that being said, I will always check a film out if it has a cast I’m interested in or plays on my nostalgia, and this film does both.
So from what I understand in the trailer, the story involves Harry and Lloyd finding out that Harry has a long-lost daughter and they wish to find her, but I don’t think the trailer said why. We also see that Lloyd has the hots for Harry’s kid which is weird, but understandable and there are going to be a lot of lengths gone to in order to find this girl.
Watching the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To is like going in a time machine back to the 90’s, the jokes and actions of Harry and Lloyd seem so stupid and juvenile, but there’s something great about it went its them who’s doing it rather than other people. Straight from the beginning you’re treated to some insane, Lloyd’s been in a mental home and Harry’s been visiting him for almost 20 years but them you find out that Harry’s been faking the entire time and what does Harry think? He’s thinks its awesome. What the heck man? Its stupid stuff like that which makes these two so funny.
Other highlights include Harry and Lloyd setting a man on fire after setting off fireworks in his bedroom, chilling in the middle of the highway with their car, the camouflaged man in front of the vending machine and the phone call where Harry tries to call his daughter and Lloyd thinks he’s getting a call from his dead dad. It’s so stupid but really fun at the same time. But the best bit is at the end with the old woman and Lloyd’s hand getting stuck in her nether regions, that was nasty but funny too.
Now this trailer isn’t perfect, even though I have no major faults with it, I still feel its important to highlight the fact that this film is comedy which has story ideas and jokes we’ve seen or heard before and just because the trailer is funny, doesn’t mean the same rules apply to a whole film. That being said I’m liking the way this is so far, I’m just being cautiously optimistic.
In conclusion this looks like it could be a lot of fun. It is more of the same crazy, stupid and over-the-top jokes and antics from the 90’s but it seems to fit in with today’s type of comedies too. Obviously this film could still bomb heavily but it does look a lot better than I was expecting and just seeing Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey back together as these characters just makes wanna see the film. If the film is half as good as this trailer then it will be worth a watch in my opinion.
So what did you think of the first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To? Be sure to comment below and I’ll see ya later?
