Shawn's Top 30 Films - #15: Dumb and Dumber

I just thought of a weird story about this movie. Back when it first came out on VHS, I was so desperate for my own copy (remember that before DVD you had to wait for used VHS’s to go on sale or else you were never getting the movie) that I took a video camera, pointed it at the TV, and recorded the movie that way. I then watched my bootleg-ass copy of Dumb and Dumber all the damn time. Anyway, that’s my story.

In the last entry I highlighted some of Jim Carrey’s finest dramatic work. Here we have what I feel is his best comedic work. I will never ever get tired of watching Dumb and Dumber. Hardly a year goes by where I don’t revisit it and it’s always hilarious. It’s easily one of the most quotable movies of all time and has one of the best laugh-to-minute ratios of any movie ever. That’s it really. I have no need to say any more. Cam Neely.
