Providence, Rhode Island. Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey), a dumb limo driver, shares the apartment with his friend Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels), a dumb dog groomer. They are saving up their money to open a pet store called "I Got Worms".
On day Lloyd falls in love with Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly), a woman he is driving to the airport, and after she intentionally leaves a briefcase in the terminal, he retrieves it and tries to return it to her, but her Aspen-bound plane has already departed.
Fired from his job, Lloyd returns to his apartment and learns that Harry has also been fired. Two criminals, Mental (Mike Starr) and J.P. Shay (Karen Duffy), which were supposed to collect the briefcase, follow Lloyd home, and mistaking them for debt collectors, Lloyd and Harry flee the apartment and return later to find that Mental and Shay have decapitated Harry's parakeet. Upset about their situation, Lloyd suggests they head to Aspen to find Mary and return the briefcase. At first Harry refuses but soon sees reason and the pair soon head out to Aspen in Harry's dog-like van. 


Dumb and Dumber is a stupid but hilarious and enjoyable comedy. Lloyd and Harry are definitely the most dumbest people on earth, but it's not easy to figure out which one is the dumb and which one is the dumber. Despite its stupidity, this film has much to teach about a topic: friendship.
Its main actors are able to elevate the film: Jim Carrey, exhilarant as always, fits perfectly in Lloyd's shoes, and Jeff Daniels carries himself admirably.


Lloyd Christmas: We got no food, we got no jobs... our PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
