Dumb and Dumberer

Unwilling to choke up big bucks for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, the brains behind this laugh-free prequel (the Farrelly brothers also opted out) use unknowns to play the mentally challenged heroes back in their high school days. Derek Richardson is pure Eighties nerd as Harry (the Daniels role). And Troy Miller directs Eric Christian Olsen to mug so hard as Lloyd that he looks like Carrey being demonically possessed by Jerry Lewis. The jokes? "Chicks are for fags," says Lloyd. The film is subtitled When Harry Met Lloyd. Believe me, you don't want to be there.
