12. 'Dumb and Dumber' (1994)

Which is the "dumb" and which is the "dumber" in this Farrelly brothers' comedy, you ask? Your guess is as good as ours: Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey both seem to be competing for the second part of this hit movie's title, and damned if it's not a two-way tie. As Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas, Daniels and Carrey instantly earned themselves prime real estate in the Idiocy Hall of Fame — that they annoy, drive crazy, blithely offend, and/or enrage everyone they come into contact with, yet still come off as likable despite having single-digit IQs, is a testament to the actors' rapport. The sequel can't come soon enough.—DAVID FEAR
