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
The Dante's Inferno restaurant is a nod to the epic 14th century poem by Dante Alighieri which was about Dante's spiritual journey as he traveled through Hell in search of the woman he loved Beatrice Portinari. It's ironic because in the film, Harry and Lloyd are on a journey to Aspen to find Mary Swanson (Who Lloyd has fallen in love with) and return her briefcase which they find themselves in all sorts of misadventures during their journey to Aspen such as Seabass. The motorcycle cop. Lloyd almost crashing into a truck when he fantasizes about Mary. Accidentally poisoning Joe Mentalino. Harry getting his leg set on fire. Lloyd driving in the wrong direction. etc. See more »
Speaking of the airbag mistake, how about the fact that the hub of the steering wheel in the Cadillac Limo was small, and could no way have an air bag behind it? See more »

The director's cut adds the following scenes:
An alternate take is used of Mental killing Lloyd's parakeet Petey, in which we hear a brief snapping sound and see a disgusted reaction from Shay.
In the diner, Harry tells the waitress that his soda is flat and has no "bubbles", and the waitress takes his drink and blows through the straw.
The "uh-oh" guitar riff is added to the soundtrack when Sea Bass is first introduced.
An alternate take of Sea Bass asking "You gonna eat that?" is used, and a shot is added of him spitting a wad of chewing tobacco spit into Harry's burger.
The scene in the honeymoon motel is extended, with Lloyd using an empty shot glass to listen to a couple having sex in the adjoining room, and Lloyd then makes a joking remark to Harry about what he'd do to him if he was a woman.
Shay tells Mental when they're pulled over that she has to "squeeze a lemon" (meaning urinate), which accounts for Mental telling her to "stay down" when Lloyd and Harry arrive.
The soundtrack is removed from the opening shot of the Dante's Inferno restaurant.
Lloyd's second encounter with Sea Bass in the restroom is extended, and alternate takes are used. Upon finding Lloyd in the stall, Sea Bass now announces "you've got to be shittin' me! It's my old friend, and right on time", strips to a leopard-skin thong, and tells him "Here's your happy place!" before Harry enters and knocks him unconscious.
An extended scene in the van is added following the above, in which Harry drills Lloyd on why he was in a bathroom with a half-naked truck driver.
At the hotel, Harry dresses up in a Spandex ski outfit, and Lloyd asks why he's wearing that. He also comes to the realization that if he and Mary were to be married, her name would be Mary Christmas.
A brief scene is added where Harry empties Mary's toilet out the window after unsuccessfully trying to repair it.
Lloyd makes a heated speech to Harry about Mary being the love of his life and telling him to stay away from her.
Funniest Farrley's Brother movie you will ever see...
It's hard to find a Farrley's Brother which isn't funny, and this is even harder to classify as, 'not funny'...because it is the funniest!
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels team up as the not just odd, but strange, weird and mentally disabled couple.
After losing both of their jobs on the same day, Lloyd (Carrey), who retrieved a bag which a woman he drove to the airport leaves in the terminal, encourages his friend Harry to come with him to Aspen where the girl flew to. They think that the gas company is after them since they didn't pay their bill, but is actually the kidnappers of Mary (Holly)'s husband, who were supposed to pick up the money where she left it in the airport terminal.
From their start in Rhode Island, until they arrive in Aspen, the kidnappers follow Harry (Daniels)and Lloyd, along the road. The script is the most well-written comedy I think ever, because every thing that they do in the movie, leads to something new and funny that ends up happening to them later on.
Their are more than a few funny scenes, and the dialogue is always right-on.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Farrley Brothers' movies, or anyone who likes Jim Carrey. It's a hilarious comedy and the two stars were perfectly casted, especially Jim Carrey, of course.
And now, an excerpt from the film,
"Skies, huh?" "That's right." "They yers?" "Yup." "Both of them?"
