This Weekend: Dumb and Dumber at Alamo Drafthouse

If you hate it when your roommate gives you "the look" every time you can't resist saying "Samsonite! I was way off!", "If I know Mary as well as I think I do, she'll invite us right in for tea and strumpets," and "Kick his ass, Sea Bass!" during your weekly viewing of Dumb and Dumber, Alamo Drafthouse is giving you a chance to watch the movie with like-minded people with his weekend's quote-along, an event where you get to say classic movie lines aloud.

In the 1994 cult classic, best friends Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels), make their way across the states to Colorado to return a briefcase left behind by Mary (Lauren Holly), whom the idiotic Lloyd attempts to woo. Unbeknownst to them, the case was full of ransom money for Mary's husband. Hilarity, or something like it, ensues.

Favorite scenes include Lloyd's revenge on Harry by lacing his drink with laxatives, Lloyd's epic restaurant fight and the boys' idiotic shopping spree. This film truly has some great, stupid conversations and the, well, dumbest gimmicks ever. As though anticipating a reenactment of the famous "broken toilet" scene, a jalapeno-eating contest will take place before the movie.

See Dumb and Dumber at 10 p.m. Saturday, June 11. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 15. Alamo Drafthouse, West Oaks Mall #429. General Admission $9.
