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 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.
'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.
