I'm not exaggerating when I say my friends and I can have ENTIRE CONVERSATIONS that consist of nothing more than movie quotes. For my group of friends, the most cited source for these quips comes from a movie featuring Chelsea, Michigan's own Jeff Daniels.

The year was 1994 and I don't think Daniels or his co-star Jim Carrey had any idea just how quotable their cinematic classic Dumb and Dumber would be. An entire generation found its common ground in its love for Harry and Lloyd's adventures in Aspen, Colorado. As a result, no road trip, Big Gulp, laxative, moon landing, scooter ride, headless bird, baseball card, or missed shot can go without dropping lines from Dumb and Dumber.

Some of our unscientific survey results showed love for a lot of different movies, here's just a few of the most mentioned:

  • Austin Powers
  • Tombstone
  • Stripes
  • Joe Dirt
  • Star Wars
  • Finding Nemo
