(2014) (Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: Two dimwitted friends set out to find the daughter one has only just learned about, all in hopes of getting her to donate a kidney to him.
- Lloyd Christmas (JIM CARREY) and Harry Dunne (JEFF DANIELS) are two dimwitted men who've been friends forever, through thick and thin. When they visit Harry's parents in hopes of having one of them donate a kidney to him, they not only learn he was adopted, but also -- via a postcard dated from 22 years ago -- that Harry fathered a child. Thinking his offspring might be a donor match, they visit Fraida Felcher (KATHLEEN TURNER), the girl's mother who states she once tried to contact her daughter, but her letter was returned unopened.
Using the address from that, Lloyd and Harry travel to Maryland but just miss Penny (RACHEL MELVIN) who's headed off to a conference of big minds in El Paso. They learn this from her adoptive father, Dr. Pinchelow (STEVE TOM), who's too ill to travel to that conference, and Penny's stepmother, Adele (LAURIE HOLDEN).
Unbeknownst to Dr. Pinchelow, she's plotting to kill him with the assistance of their handyman, Travis (ROB RIGGLE), who thinks he knows a thing or two about such matters due to having a twin brother, Capt. Lippincott (ROB RIGGLE), who's a Special Ops warrior. With Travis in tow, Lloyd and Harry then set off on a road trip to find Penny and hope that she has a kidney she can donate to Harry.
