7 Facts You Didn't Know About 'Dumb and Dumber'

December 16, 2019

"Dumb and Dumber" is mature in age, and that’s about it.

The beloved road-trip comedy -- which premiered on Dec. 6, 1994 -- celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this month.

The film, which starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels early in their careers, was the foundation of the Farrelly brothers’ run of classic comedies including “Kingpin” (1996), “There’s Something About Mary” (1998) and “Me, Myself & Irene”  (2000).

But that isn’t to say “Dumb and Dumber” is the promise of great talent to come. The film is pretty much perfect as-is. It has everything: love, shootouts with bad guys, a van designed like a sheepdog, and the most annoying sound in the world.

Whether you’ve just discovered the film or are a long-time fan who doesn’t know much about its making but want to totally redeem yourself, these are facts you never knew about the making of “Dumb and Dumber.”
