Dumb and Dumber To…

Every year my father (and more often than not, my brother) see a movie during the holiday season.  Click here to read more about the origin of our movie tradition.  

This year, the day after Thanksgiving fell on my father’s birthday.  So Troy and I asked that he select the movie – no questions asked.  To our dismay . . . he wanted to see Dumb and Dumber To.  Seriously.  And to be honest, it was not all that bad.  There were a couple of scenes that I could have done without (comedies have gotten dirtier in the past two decades).   But overall, the movie really did have the right people at the right time.  It paid honor to the original.  There were a few laugh-out loud moments.  Sort of like seeing a few old friends.  Not like it used to be . . . but good to be back together.  Not necessarily theater-worthy.  But not a disappointment.
        
As of this year, here is the record of what we have watched together…
