    Dumb & Dumber doesn't get the credit it deserves. Belongs in the upper echelon with the other comedy greats.

    I don't know if I'd go that far...I still like it, but it's the sort of movie that tumbles further down my list of great comedies every year.

    I'm as baffled as you are, especially considering the films it's up against. Have people not seen it? I always thought it was a highly regarded film?

    I remember seeing it in the theaters and feeling nauseated after the movie. I only have vague recollections of the movie, so not sure if the nausea was caused by the way the film was shot, or by the content matter. I remember it had an interesting twist ending, but I didn't vote for it due to the nausea. (and the fact a barely remember it)

    I need to rewatch Jacob's Ladder. I was in the middle of an ecstasy binge when I popped that DVD in. I don't remember the plot, but the imagery remains, and that stuff was good.

    Apart from a few trippy visuals my recollection of the film has gone out the window.
