Dumb and Dumber Quote: “I’m Going To Hang By The Bar. Put Out The Vibe.” – Lloyd Christmas

“Dumb and Dumber” is the king of ’90s comedies. Undisputed. End of discussion.

But many moviegoers forget this 1994 screwball comedy is the film that put the Farrelly Brothers on the map and cemented Jim Carrey as the dominant comedic star of the decade.

In this Best of Jim Carrey edition of Shat The Movies, we examine all the little touches and big ideas that put “Dumb and Dumber” head and shoulders above every idiot road trip movie that came before or after: jokes that get better with Google, a brilliant script that took two years to write, the Big Gulp scene, family bonding moments, the definitive ’90s soundtrack, and a cast that included undiscovered comedians just waiting to shine.

Learn about Brazilian motel sex from Big D’s wife, explore moped magic with Gene Lyons, and celebrate Roger’s first LOL since “Spaceballs.” We also detail the unedited Sea Bass restroom scene, discover what a Felcher is, Shat on Fast Food, and finally, answer “Who’s Dumb and who’s Dumber?”
