Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly, better known as The Farrelly Brothers, are responsible for some of the biggest and most quotable comedies of the past twenty years. This week, they’re making their first sequel, which also brings them back to the film that made them famous: Dumb and Dumber. Dumb and Dumber To reunites Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as idiots Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, and in so doing almost brings twenty years of comedy full circle.
To celebrate the release of Dumb and Dumber To, we’re ranked all 12 directorial efforts of the Farrelly Brothers. Theirs is a career that started with a bang and has since slowed down a bit. Still, their work is an impressive collection of films with unique and innovative plots.

Given a week’s break from the confines of marriage, the two get into some ridiculous hijinks. Read More »

Over the past month, every week there seems to be a new casting announcement for The Farrelly Brothers‘ comedy Hall Pass. And even though the comedy has already begun filming, this week isn’t any different. Variety reports that two more have joined the film, Richard Jenkins and Bruce Thomas (Kyle XY). Jenkins will portray Coakley, a man who never settled down, while Thomas plays a baseball player.
The cast includes Owen Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Jason Sudeikis, Stephen Merchant, Christina Applegate, Alyssa Milano, Larry Campbell and Vanessa Angel and J.B. Smoove. Last week we learned that Amanda Bynes left the project. Wilson stars as Rick, a husband in a dull marriage whose wife gives him a ‘hall pass’ — ie a license to engage in a week’s worth of extra-marital affairs. Sudeikis co-stars as Wilson’s best friend, who also gets a pass to get whatever ass he can. We have more details on the film’s plot, after the jump.
