''Film/SomethingWild".
* RevisedEnding: An alternate ending scene was filmed where Barney the bellman offers Harry and Lloyd the job of babysitting his grandson, who turns out to be the blind boy to whom Lloyd had sold his dead parakeet.
** Creator/JimCarrey refused to shoot an alternate ending of Harry and Lloyd getting on the bus with the Hawaiian Tropic girls.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Jim Carrey Creator/JimCarrey and Lauren Holly married after meeting on this film, but it lasted less than a year.



* ThrowItIn: Jim Carrey threw in quite a bit, like "We landed on the moon!" and even "the most annoying sound in the world" (with the latter, you can clearly see Jeff Daniels and Mike Starr trying to hold it together, bracing for whatever Carrey was about to do; [[{{Corpsing}} Daniels fails and loses his shit]] right before it cuts to a close-up of Starr).

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/NicolasCage and Creator/GaryOldman were the original choices to play Harry and Lloyd.
** Creator/SteveMartin and Creator/MartinShort both turned down the role of Lloyd.
** [[spoiler:An entire subplot was filmed involving Mary's kidnapped husband Bobby being kept in a wooden shipping crate, but was ultimately discarded. The brief scene where Nicholas and Shay discuss the snow owl incident had originally led into a scene where Bobby manages to escape while still inside the crate]].

* StarDerailingRole: Averted, thankfully. Jeff Daniels was warned by his numerous people that if he took the part, his career was over. Never happened.

Added DiffLines:

* MissingTrailerScene: Two of them:
** ''(when being pursued by the cops)'' "I have an idea. Go..... FASTER!!!"
** An alternate take of the "It's okay! I'm a limo driver!" scene, with Lloyd still moving as he says it.

* HeyItsThatGuy
** You might recognize Mike Starr, aka Joe "Mental" Mentalino, in gangster or prison movies where he played virtually the same character.
*** ''Or,'' as Georgie Weiss, a [[{{Understatement}} cranky]] producer in ''Film/EdWood''.
** Nicholas Andre was played by former ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' cast member Charles Rocket (from the 1980-1981 season, which was considered one of ''SNL'''s many low points). What's funny is that JimCarrey auditioned to be on the 1980-1981 season and was passed up in favor of Rocket.
** Then-NHL star Cam Neely is Seabass.

* SequelGap: ''Dumb and Dumber To'' comes out 20 years later. The setting apparently has Lloyd spending all this time faking insanity to the point of catatonia just to prank Harry.
