“We didn’t want to make Dumb and Dumber Lite. The first one’s a high bar to beat, so whenever we came up with really dumb jokes that didn’t fit whatever movie we were working on, I just put them into the Dumb and Dumber file,” he said.

“At the end of the last movie, they were exactly the same as they were at the beginning. There had been zero growth. And now they’re still doing stupid (expletive).”

Watch Dumb and Dumber online and prepare yourself for the November 14 arrival of a movie that proudly promises to be “dumber” than the first one.
