Jim Carrey is no longer attached to the ‘Dumb & Dumber’ sequel
— Posted by Ryan
Jim Carrey seemed excited about working on the sequel to “Dumb & Dumber” but it looks like undisclosed issues with New Line and Warner Brothers drove Carrey to leave the project. Sources say that it was the studios’ lack of enthusiasm regarding the project that drove Jim Carrey away but I’m sure the details are much more elaborate than that.
It’s a shame that something couldn’t be worked out. “Dumb & Dumber” is classic Jim Carrey comedy and probably his best comedy in my opinion. Even though sequels usually fail to surpass their predecessor, I think this one had the potential to do so being that it’s a comedy. As time progresses, films continually have less censorship with what they can do. It would have been interesting to see how far The Farrelly Brothers would have gone with their humor and if they would have revamped the film for this generation. Even if they decide to move forward, there’s no way it would be a true sequel without Jim Carrey.

When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
