Fans Will Love (Or Hate) 'Dumb And Dumber To'

November 15th, 2014 4:30pm EST
Why Fans Will Love (Or Hate) 'Dumb And Dumber To'
"Dumb and Dumber To" is in theaters now. Right at this very moment. If you wanted to, you could stop reading this (please don't) and jet over to the local multiplex to see how Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas have aged in the last twenty years.

Yes, the world needs a "Dumb and Dumber" sequel about as much as it does another Ebola outbreak or Competitive Baby Tossing in the next Olympics. But then... it's Harry! And Lloyd! God, those guys are just so lovable. It's hard to say no.

Which is why we've gone ahead and said all the yeses and nos for you. Because there's good and bad in "Dumb and...

Jim Carrey Mocks Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln Ads On 'SNL' And Does It Again For Letterman

October 30th, 2014 8:47pm EDT
Jim Carrey and David Letterman
Jim Carrey and Kate Hudson nailed impressions of Matthew McConaughey over the past week, with the actress taking on her "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" costar at the 28th American Cinematheque Award honoring the actor at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last Tuesday.

Carrey delivered his own take during a hilarious skit for "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, poking fun at McConaughey's new Lincoln car ads.

"Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward," the actor said in McConaughey's southern drawl while driving the car. "And I don't mean go back and reminisce, or chase ghosts. I me...

Jim Carrey Takes On Matthew McConaughey, Halloween & Himself On SNL, Iggy Azalea Is Musical Guest

Jim Carrey Takes On Matthew McConaughey, Halloween & Himself On
When Jim Carrey first hosted "SNL" in 1996, it was one of the times when the host temporarily revamped the show according to his own performance style. That can be a good thing or a bad thing; in Jim's case, it was very good. For his third hosting stint, he was not quite as unstoppable, but he was still quite the blast of energy. As he pointed out in his monologue, Halloween is the one day each year that he is able to blend in with everyone else, and with a plethora of mostly successful All Hallow's Eve-themed sketches, he proved to be the most apt host for the occasion. There were a few cl...

Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time
Hollywood loves a sure thing. So it's probably no surprise that when a film enjoys massive success at the box office, Tinsel Town executives immediately start planning the sequel. After all, audiences loved the original so just churning out more of the same is a bullet-proof plan, right?

Wrong.

While there have certainly been a number of great sequels that were as good as or even better than the original, there have also been quite a few times where the sequel failed to live up to expectations. Here are our picks in no particular order for the worst movie sequels of all time.

Jim Carrey And Jeff Daniels Flip Burgers With Fake Arms On 'Tonight Show'

June 11th, 2014 1:16pm EDT
Jimmy Fallon, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote the trailer of their upcoming film Dumb and Dumber To, but they may have upstaged that with a skit involving fake arms.

The recurring skit has guests use mannequin arms instead of their own while they act out a soap opera. This time, Carrey is a trainee at a burger joint and Daniels is the manager. Fallon wants a burger and fries, something fairly difficult to prepare with mannequin arms!

Jim Carrey really shines in the skit, as it involves quite a bit of ad-libbing and reminds us of the uni...

Shia LaBeouf
Despite "retiring from the public eye," Shia LaBeouf publicly slammed Jim Carrey after the comedian poked fun at Shia's plagiarism scandal during the Golden Globes.

While presenting the award for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, Carrey mused to the audience, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard... I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that."

Shia responded on Twitter, "If you explain @JimCarrey you've killed him, Nobody knows if it's for real or not. That way he's immortal." He then posted a video of Jim's daughter's band and wrote, "At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major ...

The Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, Part One

January 1st, 2014 9:03am EST
Dumb and Dumber
No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Why We’re Worried: When’s the last time the Farrelly Brothers made a good movie? Will Jim Carrey alienate half of his audience on Twitter – again?

The Expendables 3

Why We’re Hyped: Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Kelsey Grammer join the ridiculous cast for another go at...

'Kick-Ass 2': Not As Good As The Original

August 19th, 2013 11:15pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
DIY real-world teen crime fighter Kick-Ass is back in Kick-Ass 2 and though fans of the first film may line up around the block to see this film, chances are they will be disappointed. Directed by newcomer Jeff Wadlow, the sequel brings in star power from Jim Carrey this time around as opposed to Nicolas Cage and doubles down on the violence with an unexpected streak of nastiness. Yes, Chloe Grace Moretz is still the scene stealer, Mindy Macready’s Hit-Girl, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Kick-Ass, but the film suffers from a case of sequelitis. A lot of familiar faces are back along with chea...

Review: Second Helping Of 'Kick-Ass 2' Satisfies

August 15th, 2013 3:00pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
Sequels are always tough sell, but follow-ups to cult flicks might as well have a bull’s eye attached.  In the case of the new "Kick-Ass 2" there is such a target but fortunately most of the characters, story and action hit the mark just right.  The result is a flick that stays right on par with its predecessor in terms of tone and entertainment value and gives fans of the original exactly what they crave – more of the same.

Young Dave Lizewski aka Kick-Ass is at a crossroads.  He’s been missing in the crime-fighting superhero scene, so he decides to get back in the game by enlisting the h...

'Kick-Ass' Creator: 'Jim Carrey Did Us The Biggest PR Favor Of All Time'

August 15th, 2013 10:21am EDT
Kick-Ass 2
The creator of the Kick-Ass motion picture franchise is convinced Jim Carrey did him a favor by refusing to take part in the second movie's press tour as his boycott bought the film $30 million of free publicity.

Carrey has been fighting for a tightening of the country's gun control laws in the aftermath of a school shooting in Connecticut, and he subsequently withdrew his support for Kick-Ass 2 over its depiction of violence.

However, Mark Millar, who wrote the Kick-Ass comic books and is a producer on the movies, now admits Carrey's headline-grabbing stunt actually did the film a big ...

In the video, Jim Carrey stars as actor and NRA spokesman Charlton Heston on an old episode of Hee Haw.

Justin Bieber "Used" By X Factor: Is Justin Bieber angry at X Factor for using him as a PR stunt?

Verdict: True. Apparently Bieber thought he was going to get more air time on the reality talent show after he was hired to mentor L.A. Reid's team. Instead, the episode mostly centered on Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell’s teams. It seems to be all a misunderstanding, though, as Bieber was featured in the Th...

The Dumb And Dumber sequel is back on - Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are just awaiting a polished script and hope to start shooting with the Farrelly Brothers early next year.

Carrey reportedly dropped out of the project earlier this summer, just two months after the director siblings announced plans to reboot the 1994 comedy about two dim-witted pals, citing frustrations with the project's lack of progress, but Daniels insists his co-star is back on board.

He says, "We almost were able to kinda get it done this year, but they're still working on the script.

Top 10 Batman Villains From Comics, TV And The Big Screen

The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, is upon us; and much like Heath Ledger's Joker the film's villains are once again posed to steal the show.

This time around we'll be reintroduced to three bad guys: Bane, (Tom Hardy), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson). Both Bane and Catwoman made their first appearances in the original film run that Tim Burton started in the 1990s (and, fortunately, we'll be seeing a much different Bane in TDKR); and Ra's al Ghul returns to the series after his intro in Batman Begins.
