Is It November Yet? I Can Hardly Wait For Christmas (And Dunne)
I publicly confessed my affection for the movie Dumb & Dumber and its two main characters, Lloyd Christmas & Harry Dunne, way back in the year two thousand and something. I don't remember the exact year, but I do remember putting it on my MySpace page way back when Facebook was primarily used by Ivy League undergrads to play Am I Hot or Not with other Ivy League undergrads.
Over the years, I've watched it from opening sequence to beginning credit roll at least twenty times. (Okay, probably more like thirty.) Why? Because I like it. I like it ahh lot.
In fact, I like ahh lot of movies and ahh lot of shows, but there are only a handful I would take with me if I were trapped alone on a desert island with a solar powered generator, a backup diesel generator, a flat screen TV, a TiVo and a barcalounger. Dumb and Dumber is one.
(Followed by True Grit, Tombstone, Something About Mary, Pulp Fiction and probably the complete Andy Griffith Show and Twighlight Zone series. And The Killing. And Luther. And Unforgiven. And House of Cards. And Red Dwarf. And Archer. And The Gimore Girls. And ...)
I watched the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To. It's funny and clever. Here's to hoping the trailer reflects the movie.
