    In "There's Something About Mary," the gross gags were hilarious. Here, they're just vile.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Without any of the patented Farrelly insight into the insecure, horndoggy teen in every man, and without a grown-up setting in which Harry and Lloyd can transgress like dum-dum geniuses,Dumb and Dumberer is dumberest.

Iffy for 13+

Not expected to be great, but still disappoints.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, in addition to being dumberest, this movie has strong language and raunchy double entendres that 14-year-olds will probably find hilarious. A melted chocolate bar turns into an extended graphic excrement joke that is repeated later with mud. There is some stereotyping about a foreign exchange student, though she turns the tables on those who make assumptions about her.

  • Families can talk about how "special needs" kids are treated in school.

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: Mentally handicapped students are mocked, some stereotyping of an exchange student. Crude sex-related humor.
