High-definiton digital projection “Released at Christmas 1994, DUMB & DUMBER delighted audiences and caused most critics to react as if someone had just farted in a drawing room. Somebody had: the Farrelly Brothers. But one man’s gas is another man’s perfume. Low comedy can be done well or badly; not every poop joke is a winner. What distinguished the Farrellys was the sheer exuberance in their barrage of scatology and no-brainer gags. The sweetness of their approach became more evident in their third movie, There’s Something About Mary, but DUMB & DUMBER remains their most satisfying picture. The Farrellys and the stars, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, are like evil toddlers smearing their food on the walls, themselves and each other. If you’re not willing to accept their invitation to revel in the joy of being a dirty kid once again, the movie probably isn’t for you. If you are, it’s idiot paradise.” – Charles Taylor, Salon
