Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber (1994) Movie Image

You can’t keep a dumbass down.

Just ask Peter and Bobby Farrelly. Now that the siblings have wrapped their “Three Stooges” dream movie, they are moving ahead on a sequel to their 1994 hit “Dumb and Dumber”, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels expected to reprise their original roles. And why shouldn’t they? Jim Carrey hasn’t had a hit since, well, it’s been a while. (Animated or creep mo-cap films do not count.) And Jeff Daniels is, well, Jeff Daniels. (No offense to Jeff Daniels or his fan.)

The brothers and New Line are proceeding as if the ill-conceived prequel “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” in 2003 did not happen, and really, isn’t that for the best?

Sean Anders and John Morris, the duo being the teen sex comedy “Sex Drive”, will write the script. It’s a fool’s errand, to be sure. After all, how can they ever hope to match, much less top, the brilliant and smart comedy that was “Dumb and Dumber”? Perish the thought.

    Wow, didn’t see that coming. But don’t the Farrelly’s usually write their own scripts? Especially if they’re resurrecting one of their biggest properties, you’d think they’d wanna write it themselves.
