Thank You: Jim Carrey Abandons Dumb and Dumber 2 Due to 'Lack of Enthusiasm' From Studio

While Dumb & Dumber is most certainly one of the Farrelly boys’ greatest comedies, we don’t think there were tons of people itching for a sequel. The horrific prequel featuring none of the original actors definitely injected a sour taste in our mouths, plus the recent track-record of Peter and Bobby Farrelly isn’t exactly spectacular. Comedy has evolved since they made a name for themselves in the ’90s, and with each film it seems they’re trying to find a pot of comedic gold that just doesn’t exist anymore for them. Which is why we weren’t over the moon regarding news that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were reuniting for a Dumb & Dumber 2, and it’s also why we’re not heartbroken upon hearing that Carrey has now left the project, which was set to shoot this fall.
