** The planned original ending was to have Harry and Lloyd get on the bikini tour bus. [[WagTheDirector Jim Carrey convinced the Farrellys]] that the ending as filmed would be funnier and fit the two characters better.

* 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.

*** It's theoretically possible. Given that they're in a fancy resort in the Rocky Mountains, they almost certainly are watching satellite TV rather than cable or broadcast. If they were attuned to a west coast satellite, it could happen.

** At one point, the Farrelly Brothers considered Corey Feldman for Lloyd and Creator/CoreyHaim for Harry, but New Line Cinema CEO Robert Shaye wouldn't allow it as he felt the Coreys were no longer bankable actors.

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** Harry and Lloyd are supposed to be in Aspen, Colorado in the second half of the movie. Except the town they are in is actually Breckenridge. You can tell because Breckenridge has one main street where shops and restaurants are located with cross streets descending the hills on the east and west sides of the valley feeding into the main drag. Aspen is a town spread out across many blocks with rather busy traffic. Although both have ski resorts on one side of the town.
** In the scene where Harry and Lloyd are on the bed in the presidential suite, crying and blowing their noses with money, they are watching a commercial for Pacific Bell. If they are in a hotel in Aspen, CO there is no way they would have seen that commercial on a hotel TV when the ad is clearly for a company that serves the west coast. (U S WEST, now [=CenturyLink=], was the Baby Bell in Colorado.)
** The skiing scenes were clearly shot at Copper Mountain, not at an Aspen ski area. You can tell because the lift operators obviously wear Copper Mountain uniforms, not Aspen uniforms. Copper Mountain is over two hours drive from Aspen.
** The airport scenes in Rhode Island were filmed at Salt Lake City International Airport. In addition, Park City, Utah, doubles as Aspen during a few scenes set in town. Lloyd and Harry's apartment building is located in Salt Lake City, as is the building where Lloyd picks up Mary to drive her to the Airport. Finally, the building in Lloyd's Dream Sequence where he gives Mary her briefcase (and takes a peek at her rear) is La Caille, a gourmet restaurant and winery located just outside of Salt Lake City.

** An early draft of the film had Creator/MelGibson as Mary's husband, playing himself in a cameo role. This was going to be a gag because at the time, Mel Gibson was one of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs, and somebody like Lloyd Christmas couldn't possibly hope to compete with him.

* ActorAllusion: After scamming Seabass to pay for their bill, Lloyd says he saw it on a movie. The movie he is speaking of is ''Film/SomethingWild'' and Jeff Daniels does the same thing to Creator/RayLiotta.

* ThrowItIn: Creator/JimCarrey 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).
