Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are two friends who are both dreaming of starting their own worm shop. They try to raise enough money with their work to make their dream a reality. When one of Lloyds female customers “forgets” her briefcase he sees an opportunity to see her, Mary Swanson, again. He really likes her and convinces Harry to join him on a journey to Aspen. They are both extremely stupid which results in extremely funny situations.
It has been a while since I last watched this movie, but it was still as funny as I remembered. To me it’s one of the best comedies ever made. Just every scene is funny.
Carrey and Daniels really act well together and play their roles with such a straight face that it’s a joy to see how stupid they both act. Amongst my favorite scenes are the one with the ketchup and mustard and the one where Mary and Harry have fun in the snow.
I remembered a lot of jokes and was still laughing out loud. If a comedy still manages to do that after you have seen it a couple of times it really is a great one. For me it’s enough reason to award this movie with a 10.
Interested in other movies which I’ve awarded a 10?
