20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry's newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.
Dumb and Dumber (1994) bears a striking resemblance with the beginning of the Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor film Stir Crazy (1980). Both films involve two friends who, after getting fired from service jobs the same day, decide to move West after an inspirational speech by one of the friends. Both films also include a road trip segment in a van, a run in with hillbilly locals and an energetic exclamation of how much they love being somewhere else. Dumb and Dumber To (2014) has some scenes in common with another Wilder and Pryor film, See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989), where two friends are being hunted and nearly killed several times over a seemingly innocent item. There's also a sequence in both films of the friends passing as scientists/doctors to gain access to a conference/hotel with one of the friends making a very awkward appearance in the conference.
Asylum Nurse No. 1:
There he is again.
Asylum Nurse #2: Almost two decades and he still comes.
Asylum Nurse No. 1: So sad.
One of the inventors produces a machine which can put people's thoughts and memories on to a screen. After Harry's visualisation, he complains that the bed cover in his memory was orange, not the colour shown on the screen. However, Harry had his eyes shut, and was facing the wrong way to see the screen.
The first part of the end credits shows clips from this movie and the original ''Dumb and Dumber''.
