9. 'Dumb and Dumber'
Prior to 1994, Jim Carrey was merely known as "that white guy from In Loving Color." By the end of the year, he was one of the most famous men on the planet. That's because in that 12-month period he released, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask and, that December, his masterpiece Dumb and Dumber. It's the tale of two idiots driving cross country in a van that looks like a dog in pursuit of a beautiful woman. Carrey has never been more on his game, and later this year the sequel is finally hitting just in time for the 20th anniversary. We're cautiously optimistic, even though there hasn't been a good Jim Carrey movie in a long, long time.
