They may be dumb but they’re not stupid. Nearly 20 years after its release, the 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber still remains a fan favorite. Quotes are regularaly thrown around, scenes referenced and a no-brainer sequel has long been discussed. Earlier this year, it seemed like the Farrelly Brothers were getting closer than ever, but then Jim Carrey dropped out of the film. The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To.

The Three Stooges may not have quite been the box office smash that the Farrelly Brothers were hoping for, but the writer / director / producer pair are pressing onward with another new project. Fox has just acquired a holiday comedy spec script by Dan Ewen titled Dear Satan for the siblings. It’s unclear at this point if they’ll direct, but the goofy premise sounds like it could be right up their alley. Read more after the jump.

Remember when we thought for a minute that Johnny Knoxville might play Moe in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly version of The Three Stooges? That didn’t happen, but now things have come full circle, in a way, as the new trailer for the film opens by emulating the warning that opened every episode of Knoxville’s breakout show Jackass. The thrust of this trailer is slapstick: face slaps, eye pokes, hammers to the forehead, shellfish down the pants and a lot more. The question is: does it work? Read More »

Although that first domestic trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges left me pretty cold, with just a month to go until the film’s release it seemed worth giving the new international trailer a fair shot.

I’d like you all to do something for me. When you watch this trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges, I’d like you to picture Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro in the roles that are now occupied by Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopoulos. Because the fact that Penn, Carrey and Del Toro had even thought about doing this movie is totally insane, seeing what eventually came out of the project. I’m sure what they would have made might not have borne much of a likeness to this, because it couldn’t have been the disaster that this appears to be. But it’s fun to think about — a lot more fun than you’ll get out of this trailer, I bet. Read More »
