One of the funniest movies of all time is Dumb and Dumber. This Jim Carrey classic contains some of the most quotable and hilarious lines in cinema history. Many of these lines have permeated American pop culture and are still in wide use to this day.
The film was released in 1994 and was almost an instant classic making it’s way to literally any list of 1990s comedy films. After the film was released on video, television stations such as TBS played the film constantly to wide audience. This propelled the film to front of American pop culture.
Set in Rhode Island and Colorado, the film follows the exploits of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunn, played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels respectively. Hilarity ensues as the two embark on a cross country trip in a 1986 converted Sheepdog Van.
Most of the film’s humor is due to the main characters and their lack of common sense and social conventions. An example of this is when Lloyd hugs Mary at the end of their limo trip. Usually, passengers and their drivers do not hug at the end of a trip that is for hire. Lloyd however fell in love with Mary in the ten minutes it took him to get her to the airport.
This is one of Jim Carrey’s earliest starring roles and is a film that gave him his big break in the industry. The funny subtle lines, ridiculous situations, and star power on the screen make Dumb and Dumber one of the most hilarious movies of all time. It was definitely one of the best movies for teens of the decade.
