Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels reprise their roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel Dumb And Dumber To. The slapstick comedy takes Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.

Special features include an alternate opening (HD 02:19), six deleted and extended scenes (HD 10:22), a gag reel (HD 07:33), the featurettes That’s Awesome!––The Story Of Dumb And Dumber To (HD 44:45) and What’s So Smart About Dumb And Dumber To? (HD 06:17), upfront previews, BD-Live, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture, photographed digitally with the Arri Alexa camera system, is vivid throughout, with a boldly bright and colorful presence. Colors are strongly saturated and at times really pop with warm and rich hues. Fleshtones are naturally rendered and healthy looking. Contrast is good, with deep blacks as well as shadow delineation. Resolution is excellent, with fine detail exhibited throughout. The imagery largely relates to a road trip with outrageous imagery. This is a fun visual experience, and the antics are very slapstick.

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused, but the music score is lively and dynamic sounding with good fidelity and tight extended bass. The music is the surround element and is effectively aggressive. Atmospherics are low-keyed, while dialogue dominates. Dialogue is intelligible and funny. The scene at the train tracks and the consequential need for a hearing aid is hilarious as a sonic effect. The conference scenes provide a sense of natural ambiance. Overall, this is a mostly monaural presentation spiked with a dynamic music track
