> Starring: Derek Richardson, Eric Christian Olsen, Eugene Levy

The filmmakers behind “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” may have taken its title a little too seriously. Critics found the film — a prequel to 1994’s “Dumb and Dumber” — exceedingly inane, even for an intended sophomoric comedy.
