"You know the rules, no humping, no licking, no sniffing hineys."
Two classically trained actors in their finest roles, a moving, touching experience that...oh, fuck it. It's funny."I can't believe it! We've got no food, we've got no water, our pets' heads are falling off!"
There's a scene in this movie where a little blind boy gets a parakeet whose head has been separated from his body. I laughed so hard when I saw that in the theater. Say what you will about the lowbrow humor of the Farrelly brothers or the incessant mugging of Jim Carrey, but dammit, this movie is funny.
Lloyd and Harry (Carrey and Jeff Daniels) are two idiots. They end up with a suitcase full of cash belonging to Mary (Lauren Holly) and end up travelling to Aspen to give it to her.
Lloyd: "I'm talkin' about a place where the beer flows like wine, where the women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talkin' about Aspen." Harry: "I don't know Lloyd, the French are assholes."
Of course, since they're idiots, all sorts of goofy stuff ensues.
It's hard not to like any movie where a van is made up to look like a giant sheepdog. There are some definite lowbrow gross out moments, but they're all funny as hell. I think this may be my favorite Carrey film, and surprisingly enough, Jeff Daniels hangs in there with him. He's every bit as funny as Carrey is, maybe even more at times.
Go ahead and see it, laugh, and feel ashamed about it later. But see it.It's the shaggin' wagon.
