Get some details on the start of the film...
IGN has released a report of footage for Dumb and Dumber To, which was shown at CinemaCon. The film stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and was directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly. It will be released on November 14.
Here's a description of the footage:
The sequence opened on Harry coming to visit his dear friend Lloyd in a mental facility, where he's apparently been drooling away, near catatonic in a wheelchair for the past two decades. Harry, distraught at the site of his buddy's continued pain, begs and pleads for him to speak, say anything, just give some sign of life, at which point Lloyd looks up and yells, "Got ya!"
Harry is delighted to discover that Lloyd's institutionalization has been one long and elaborate "Got Ya". The reveal was followed by a highly uncomfortable sequence featuring the pair trying to remove Lloyd's catheter, which they finally do with the assistance of a flatbed truck. Oh, the humanity...From there, the the footage really got into the meat of the story.
Harry discovers a lost letter from 1991 in which his lover, Fraida Felcher (played by Kathleen Turner), tells him that she's pregnant. A confused Harry races to see Fraida, and his now adult daughter, only to discover that she's been given up for adoption. Lloyd and Harry quickly leave on a wild chase to find his child, but not before Lloyd discovers if Fraida had a C-Section or went au snatchural.
The remainder of the footage was a series of often hilarious dumb-dumb and gross out jokes, the most memorable of which featured Lloyd being duped into pleasuring and elderly woman who promised that "big diamonds" lay right beneath her. Not to be crass, but there was v-jay dusk involved.
