I used to know every line from that movie. I probably still do.

Aspen CO sure looked droolworthy in that movie!

Thanks for the info NSW! Yeah I hope I get to vacation there sometime.

I pretty much hated Dumb & Dumber. But I loved the soundtrack.

Oh wait, I did laugh at the scene where Jim Carrey's trying to think of the girl's name and something about it being on her suitcase and .... "SAMSONITE! Huh, I was WAY off."

His delivery on that bit cracked me up. But I didn't like the movie. And I usually am game for dumb humor.

Goodnight bar



Oh and did I mention that Obama swept the primaries and caucuses held in Washington, Nebraska and Louisiana today? He also took the Virgin Islands

I KNEW Cori was going to not have liked Dumb and Dumber, somehow.

Which is good, cos now I am not alone. Film was just not my cup of tea. Not a big Carrey fan.

Right on, my brother.

Carrey was hit or miss for me, back in the day. First I saw of him was The Mask, which I loved. Then I went home and immediately rented the first Ace Ventura, which I hadn't seen. Loved it.

Then I got sick of him pretty fast.

I like him in 2 films:

Truman Show
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Which are 2 dramatic turns for him, although the former has dashes of his manic nature.

I thought the Truman Show was just okay. I think I was one of the few who liked The Cable Guy. Don't need to see it again, but I thought it was interesting, and the first stretch for Carrey to do something other than amiable jokey guy. Creepy jokey guy is a step in the interesting direction.

I loved Eternal Sunshine.

I just rewatched the Truman Show not too long ago, and it's even more poignant to me now than the first time around. Maybe cos I work in the business and all.

Eternal Sunshine is the better film, though, to me.

His serious roles were really good but I still think D&D was his peak! The Mask too.

I think most Carrey fans would agree with you. Since I'm not a fan, though, I find his dramatic roles a hell of a lot more interesting.

Same with Sandler. Not a fan of his films (loved him on Remote Control and SNL, though), but, thought he was fantastic in Punch Drunk Love.

When a person with that sort of manic energy can suffuse it, or channel it into a role, I'm kind of fascinated.

What about The Majestic - I seem to recall it was alright

I don't think I've ever seen Dumb & Dumber

So you'd put Robin Williams in that category as well? I much prefer his dramatic roles than the comedic ones. But I did really like Good Morning Vietnam, where he was kind of himself but also playing a real person (Adrian Cronauer)

Robin Williams has done some interesting things since venturing down the "serious" path.

I love Good Morning Vietnam, but there's a lot of "Robin Williams" in the performance. Which is fine, it works in the movie.

I also liked The Fisher King, but there were still moments where you saw that manic "Robin Williams" again. Which mostly worked with the character, who was mentally ill. But still.

Same with Dead Poets Society, where there's still a little bit of that manic guy trying to get out.

I thought he was really subdued in Awakenings, and it worked well. And he plays creepy REALLY well. One Hour Photo and Insomnia, he was good in both - I thought he was super creepy in One Hour Photo.

And then he does shit like RV or Patch Adams, and when you see him on TV he's still doing his manic attention whore act, and it just makes me hate him.

I love Insomnia, and One Hour Photo was good as well.

He was pretty much all non-manic in Good Will Hunting.
