Set back in the 80s when Harry met Lloyd in high school where they cross paths with a mean principal and a bunch of other outcasts much like themselves.
“Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” is a comedy film released in 2003, directed by Troy Miller and starring Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson as the main characters, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. It is a prequel to the 1994 film “Dumb and Dumber” and tells the story of how Lloyd and Harry became friends and their misadventures in high school.
The movie received negative reviews from critics and was not a commercial success, failing to capture the charm and humor of the original film. Nonetheless, it has gained a cult following over the years and is still considered a guilty pleasure for some fans of the franchise.
Despite the lack of success, “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” remains a classic example of a prequel that fails to capture the magic of the original, and serves as a cautionary tale for filmmakers looking to cash in on the success of a beloved franchise.
