Dumb and Dumber

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniel’s Dumb and Dumber To laughed its way to an estimated $38.1 million debut at the North American box office, enough to edge out strong holdover Big Hero 6.

The lives of four black students at an Ivy League college converge after controversy breaks out due to the ill-conceived theme of the campus humor magazine's annual Halloween party. (100 mins.)

The invitation for the party as shown in the trailer is almost verbatim the invitation for a real life party that occurred at the University of California, San Diego, on February 10th, 2010. The synopsis and film take many cues from the UCSD "Compton Cookout," an event run by one African American but attended by UCSD's predominately white and Asian student body. The event itself went fine, but news about it prompted a massive uproar on campus.
