We know, we know: It's supposed to be stupid. But does it have to be this stupid? Based on the popular series of kiddie books, it's the saga of Stanley Stupid (Tom Arnold), the awe-inspiringly moronic scion of the dumbest family in America. Night after night, some

fiend has been stealing his garbage right out of the can. Stanley suspects it's the work of criminal mastermind Mr. Sender -- the very same Mr. Sender who's been pilfering thousands of pieces of mail a day by having the post office mark them "Return to Sender." Stanley sets off to unravel the

sinister plot and manages to get himself involved in a real-life conspiracy involving illegal arms dealing, space aliens, international terrorists and more. Much, much more, none of it funny. Director john Landis has made some smashing comedies: His NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE is an undisputed

classic, and AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON is terrifically scary to boot. But the best we can think of to say here is that he's actually managed to make DUMB AND DUMBER seem downright cerebral.
