‘Kingpin’ Sequel is Somehow in the Works With Original Directors Peter & Bobby Farrelly Producing

Now, 25 years later, Peter & Bobby Farrelly are said to somehow ...

25 Years Later, Dumb and Dumber Is More Than Just the Gold Standard for Toilet Humor

Toilet humor is probably as old as mankind. There could be a cave painting somewhere depicting one of our forebears stepping into a giant pile of dinosaur poo, but at the very least we know that Chaucer was into it in the 14th Century: In the Miller’s Tale, the mischievous scholar Nicholas lets “fly a fart as loud as if it were a thunder-clap.” If it’s good enough for Chaucer, it’s good enough for us. You would think, then, that intelligent critics and moviegoers would have had plenty of ti...
