100 Funniest Movies (Part 23 ~ # 2)

#2 is duh!

On the Road Again

Dumb and Dumber ~ 1994

  • Hey..how bout a hug?
  • Fell off the jetway again.
  • Polly wanna cracker?
  • ...our pets heads are falling off!
  • It's a shaggin' wagon.
  • Chicks love it.
  • What's the soup of the day?
  • Tell her I've got a rapist's wit.
  • Mock-yeah-ing-yeah-bird-yeah...
  • You sold my dead parakeet to a blind kid?
  • Here take these extra gloves, my hands are starting to get sweaty.

Need I say more?

Question: Whoever cast Jeff Daniels is a frickin' genius! But why oh why haven't we seen Jim Carrey share the spotlight ever since? This is by far his funniest movie and yet you can't help but know that it'll never be this good again. The number 2 Jim, not 23! You need a sidekick!

The Farrelly brothers find an actor who is as twisted as they are and presto! A classic is born. I'm sure there are some of you reading this who prob'ly swore off Carrey after Ace Ventura and never looked back. The Mask is kinda lame too so this third and best film of his was completely unexpected as far as I'm concerned. Everything just clicked perfectly. Hell, even Lauryn Holly's good in it.

    Before I reveal the next 10 films, I'd just like to explain my intent here. I am not ranking these films in order of their greatness, nor am I saying that these are the best films ever, this is purely entertainment.

    This epic list was inspired by my childhood radio station WLIR-WDRE 92.7 fm on Long Island. Their mantra was 'Dare To be Different' and they were introducing new bands every single week. Let's begin.

Okay here's a wild guess, coming from the old school: BLAZING SADDLES. I had a few other guesses like FLETCH and UP IN SMOKE (Cheech and Chong), but Blazing Saddles HAS to be it, hands down.
