The premise is incredibly basic, but it works. About two incredibly stupid friends who embark on a cross-country adventure together to return a briefcase. Yes, there are romance and criminal elements to it along the way, but not that much.
The film fits perfectly with the 1990’s. It’s stupid and crude, but actually quite funny. You need to shut your brain off for it. Just laugh at the madness on screen, the classic jokes “So you’re saying there’s a chance.”
Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey have great chemistry in this film. Without question, these to make the movie brilliant in its stupidity.
There isn’t much more to say.(The movie isn’t really deep in any manner worth discussing….go figure.) So I ask the following.
What is your favorite stupid comedy?
