This summer, for every outcast who has tried to fit in, comes the prequel to the worldwide hit DUMB & DUMBER, which sees the triumphant return of lovable goofballs Harry and Lloyd in an adventure of truly idiotic proportions.

From the very beginning, Lloyd Christmas (Eric Christian Olsen) knew he had a friend for life in Harry Dunne (Derek Richardson). It's the first day of high school and Harry, who previously has been home schooled by his mother (Mimi Rogers), needs someone to show him the ropes. Lloyd, who conveniently lives in the school's basement with his adoptive dad/school custodian Ray (Luis Guzman), turns out to be just the guy.

As the two set out to crack the "big show" (aka high school), they unwittingly fall into the web of the corrupt Principal Collins (Eugene Levy) and his girlfriend, head lunch lady Ms. Heller (Cheri Oteri), who want them to be the first students in a phony "special needs" class in order to bilk $100,000 in grant money for themselves. As Harry and Lloyd enthusiastically venture out to recruit more students for this new class, they unwittingly catch the attention of the beautiful Jessica Matthews (Rachel Nichols), a hard-hitting reporter for the school's newspaper, who suspects foul play.

Trying to help Jessica, while unintentionally ear-deep in the plot themselves, Harry and Lloyd bumble into a shot at greatness when a supreme act of stupidity at the school's Thanksgiving Day Parade turns the tables on Principal Collins.

DUMB AND DUMBERER: WHEN HARRY MET LLOYD takes Harry and Lloyd back to their formative teen years where it all began: 1986 at Providence High School - when Dumb literally ran headfirst into Dumberer. Newcomers Derek Richardson and Eric Christian Olsen inherit the lead roles of Harry and Lloyd, the lovable losers who entertained audiences in the 1994 blockbuster hit DUMB & DUMBER.
