Harry and Lloyd are two good friends who happen to be really stupid. The duo set out on a cross country trip from Providence to Aspen, Colorado to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner, a beautiful woman named Mary Swanson. After a trip of one mishap after another, the duo eventually make it to Aspen. But the two soon realize that Mary and her briefcase are the least of their problems.Written by
In the ball scene, Harry and Lloyd both do impressions of Hannibal Lector, the main antagonist from _The Silence of the Lambs (1991). In Jim Carrey's later film The Cable Guy (1996) Chip Douglas (Played by Jim Carrey) impersonates Hannibal Lector. See more »

Excuse me. Could you tell me how to get to the medical school? I'm supposed to be giving a lecture in 20 minutes, and my driver's a bit lost.

The opening credits are full of spelling errors. For instance, "Prodoosed", "Durected" and "wrote" instead of "written". See more »
In the TV version the scene where Harry, Lloyd and Mary are on the bed at gunpoint and Harry are fighting, Lloyd tells Harry where to sign: "Right on my sandwich after you kiss it!", as opposed to the movie where he says "Right on my ass after you kiss it!" See more »
It's hard to believe this was out over a decade ago, but it was another in a long line (past few decades) of crude comedies....BUT one of the better ones regarding some laugh-out-loud funny scenes.
The "classic" of the funny scenes, at least to most men including me, is poor Jeff Daniels on the toilet. No need to go into details! As crazy as Jim Carrey got in some of his earlier movies (Ace Ventura, Liar, Liar, etc) he's actually lower-key than in some of the other stupid-guy roles he played, one reason because he's doesn't shout in here. I didn't find the female lead in here, Lauren Holley, to be appealing but that's just my opinion.
In modern-day slapstick, it means one basic thing: gross out your audience, so that's what is attempted here. When it works, it's very funny, such as that bathroom scene.. One thing for sure: the language makes this an R-rated film, not PG-13. Speaking of jokes, that PG-13 rating has become a joke.
Anyway, you should get a lot of laughs out this: at least I suspect males will more than females....and that's all it was meant for - laughs, and nothing else - so don't trash the film because it wasn't "intelligent" enough for you.
