Dark scene from Dumb and Dumber was 'wisely' taken out of cinema version
| Last updated
A pretty dark scene never made into Dumb and Dumber’s theatrical release — and it’s not hard to see why.
The Jim Carrey comedy was released all the way back in 1994 and quickly became a much-loved classic — but one scene didn’t make it into cinemas as it was definitely more harrowing than 'haha'. Check it out:
The hit comedy saw Carrey put in one of his most memorable roles as Lloyd Christmas alongside Jeff Daniels’ Harry Dunne — a pair of not-so-lovable losers on a quest to return a missing briefcase to its rightful owner.
As the title suggests the duo aren’t exactly up to the job of reuniting the case with its owner and find themselves in all manner of bizarre situations, such as getting on the wrong side of local hard-man Sea Bass.
Harry and Lloyd have their first run-in with Sea Bass when they stop for some food at a roadside dinner - but that isn’t their only encounter.
Fast forward half an hour hour or so and Harry and Lloyd stop off at a petrol station to fill up the Mutts Cutts car. While Harry is at the pumps, Lloyds heads inside to use the toilet, after entering the cubicle he sees a note scrawled on the wall reading: “For manly love be here March 25th at 2.30am sharp.”
Lloyd checks his watch to reveal that it is exactly 2.30am on 25 March and the door bursts open to reveal Sea Bass, who says: “Oh man! How great is this? If It ain’t my old pal. Right on time.”
When asked what he plans to do, Sea Bass tells Lloyd: “First I’m going to rape you and then I’m going to kill you.”
In the extended (not in cinemas) version, the scene is slightly longer and includes a terrified Lloyd tells himself to ‘find a happy place’ to which Sea Bass undoes his trousers saying: “I’ll show you a happy place,” before grabbing his leopard-print covered crotch and continuing: “Here’s your happy place.”
Fortunately for Lloyd, by this point Harry has managed to set himself alight while filling the tank and he rushes into the toilet, smashes through the closed door — knocking Sea Bass clean out — as he attempts to put out the flames by stamping his flaming foot down the toilet.
Watching it back, it’s not hard to see why the scene was cut before the movie landed in cinemas, is it?
