It has been a 20 year wait, but Harry and Lloyd are back!
All of those who have been anxiously awaiting the sequel have already seen the “Dumb and Dumber To” (great sequel name) theatrical trailer, but now it is being pumped into homes for the scrutiny of all America. I was quite curious to see the changes from the the theatrical trailer to the TV spot. I thought the TV spot would be more geared toward a generation unfamiliar with our Dumbnamic Duo. The original is undoubtedly a comedic classic but if today’s teens have not seen “Airplane” or “Blazing Saddles” how can we expect them to have seen any comedy made before they were born?
I enjoy both of the trailers equally, but think that because today’s youth may need more of an introduction to our IQ-slighted friends they may have been best been served switched. The theatrical trailer seems to have a few more original jokes, while the TV spot tends to rely more on references from the original. Either way I have high hopes for the highly anticipated sequel.
