April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day). So instead, let’s honor some humor professionals; the men and women who’ve made the best comedies of the last 25 years.
The Farrelly Brothers
The target audience for ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ is college-age kids from 1994. Now, by that, I don’t mean “people living in 2014 who went to college in the mid-‘90s.” I mean that it’s for someone who is in college right now and it’s also 1994. I’ve never seen a movie like ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ that is so unabashedly not from this time. It’s one of the best period pieces I’ve ever seen, even though the plot of the film is set in the present. The Farrelly brothers have successfully made a movie from 1994 in 2014.
Reunited and it feels so dumb, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne.
'Dumb and Dumber 2' recently began production in Georgia, as the first set pics of the reunited Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloy (Jim Carrey) have spilled out. In addition to the new flood of casting additions, like 'The Walking Dead' star Laurie Holden, comedian Rob Riggle has now joined in the fun.
Fans of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' know that Laure Holden (Andrea) didn't have a great season 3, but that's ok because she's just landed her next role opposite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel, 'Dumb and Dumber To,' and she'll be joined by two others.
Warner Bros. made a pretty dumb (or was it smart?) move to dump the Farrelly Brothers' 'Dumb and Dumber To,' but Universal has swept in to rescue the sequel from production limbo.
Warner Bros. has decided it's smart (and smarter) to ditch Bobby and Peter Farrelly's 'Dumb and Dumber 2', forcing the brothers to shop the sequel around to other studios.
We've been waiting patiently for a proper follow-up to 1994's 'Dumb and Dumber' for, well, almost 20 years now. (Let's not count that unfortunate prequel.) One of those projects that seems to have life for a moment once every two years, it has never felt like it was going to truly come together. But the stars appear to be aligning for our dopey friends, as writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have revealed the title of the new 'Dumb and Dumber' installment.
It wasn't long ago that Jim Carrey exited 'Dumb and Dumber 2' with co-star Jeff Daniels naturally trailing right behind him. But don't give up hope just yet, guys. Looks like Daniels thinks the Farrelly brothers will get it together by next summer, and Jim Carrey still wants to do it, and unicorns are giving birth to kittens under waterfalls made of fro-yo.
The Farrelly Brothers are at it again, making another comedy, but this time it's a very well known property that the two have sunk their fangs into. After years of development, the 'The Three Stooges' is almost here and today we're able to see more of their zany antics in the latest trailer.
