DUMB AND DUMBER sometimes slips through the cracks of my mind, to a place where it is not often thought of. This isn't because it's a bad movie, in fact, it's quite the opposite. It's because it came out a relatively long time ago at this point, and the prequel film DUMB AND DUMBERER didn't help the series much either.

But we are now hearing reports that the Farrelly brothers might be interested in doing a true sequel to the film, if they can get Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back as Harry and Lloyd.

You can check out what Bob Farrelly had to say, after the break!

"[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel."

I'm not against the idea of a sequel at all, as long as they actually develop a good concept for the film. The problem I've had with some of the past few Farrelly movies were purely story problems, not cast issues. Then again, going back into the well could be a really good idea for them. Hopefully they can work it out.

What do you guys think about a DUMB AND DUMBER sequel?
