Jim Carrey Drops Out of "Dumb and Dumber" Sequel

Posted: June 20th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jim Carrey Drops Out of "Dumb and Dumber" SequelSubmit Comment
About three months ago, the Farrelly brothers revealed that they are working on a sequel to "Dumb and Dumber," which was released in 1994 and grossed $247 million on a $17 million budget. Then came word that both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels would reprise their roles, something that Carrey was extremely excited about.

But Entertainment Tonight is now reporting that Carrey has dropped out, stating that he has grown increasingly frustrated by Warner Bros' lack of enthusiasm for the project. "I would have thought 'Dumb and Dumber To' was a no-brainer," he said. "After all it's implied in the title."

Without Carrey there's obviously no movie.

Was he being sarcastic when he said that? Otherwise, the f*cker must be going through a mid life crisis.

The reason given doesn't make any sense! I'm sure it's more about a financial issue than "lack of enthusiasm". WTF does that mean anyway?

At least, Jim Carrey knows what's Dumb and what's Dumber, just like this idea of a sequel.

Mother f*ckers! I want this movie so much, I'd honestly donate a couple bucks to help finance this...

Jim is done. He should have transitioned more into dramatic roles when he dabbled into them.

Awesome decision, Carrey, forsaking the very role that threw your tired annoying schtick into the stratosphere, but hey, I guess all those other roles you've taken over the last several years are working out for you, huh?

"Without Carrey there's obviously no movie."

You overestimate Hollywood, WP. Expect them to recast Arnie Hammer, or some other bland hack, in the role.

Hopefully this gets somebody fired and others to take notice. The original is one of the greatest comedies of all time.

"[Carrey] had grown increasingly frustrated by Warner Bros' lack of enthusiasm by the project."

What did he expect?! Your only as good as your box office returns & he has to realize, he's made duds like YES, MAN, I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS, and MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS!!

And HE'S FRUSTRATED?! I think he's more frustrated at his own movie choices (and a slightly bruised ego)...those last duds are really haunting him now.
