Movie Review – Dumb and Dumber

This month’s movie is Dumb and Dumber.

dd1Dumber and Dumber is about two good-hearted, but incredibly stupid friends who drive across country to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner.

dd2Cooper did not like that the star of the movie, Harry’s budgie, Petey, met an untimely end at the hands of kidnappers (and was then sold to Billy, the blind boy in #4C).

dd3Despite the budgie violence, Cooper found the movie amusing. She hopes there will be more budgies in the upcoming sequel.
