If Anchorman 2 wasn’t bad enough, now there’s going to be Dumb And Dumber 2 as well
LADIES and gentlemen, it’s the return of the idiot! That’s right – getting your brain massaged by comedy so precise, it’s like eye surgery and biting satire is gone, once again swallowed by HUR HUR HUR HUR HURring and people farting into their cupped hands.
Every twobit simpleton somersaulted with glee at the news that Anchorman would be returning to the silver screen and now, they can have a full lob-on in their adult nappies at the reports swirling around saying that Peter and Bobby Farrelly will be bringing everyone a sequel to Dumb and Dumber.
A while ago, there were rumours that Sean Anders and John Morris were working on the script for the film. Their credits include Hot Tub Time Machine if you want some kind of handle on the quality of their wares. And now, Peter Farrelly dropped his dumbass bombshell in the middle of a Three Stooges promo trawl, saying: “We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September. We’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
A source close to the production has said that the film is “moving along, but it’s not greenlit yet.”
However, given everyone’s self-imposed idiocy, it is very difficult to imagine a world where this won’t get the go-ahead. Everything is so sneering and depressing at the minute that, the only thing to save us from our own depressive funks are people who soil themselves and hoot with laughter while falling down manholes.
What have we become?
