Watch Dumb and Dumber Recut as an Oscar-Nominated Drama

Before next month's Academy Awards, you're going to want to catch Jim Carrey's oscar-nominated performance. But it's not from an amazing performance in The Truman Show (he wasn't even nominated!). It's from Dumb and Dumber

OK, so he's still not up for an Oscar, and his performance in Dumb and Dumber remains a fond memory of your childhood. However, Mashable Watercooler just reinvented Dumb and Dumber by mixing up scenes and adding thought-provoking music until the film comes out looking like a drama.

In the resulting trailer, the story becomes that of an everyman, two loyal friends, and a timeless romance. Carrey screams good, and cries good too. Man, this movie deserves a lifetime achievement Oscar. 

Hopefully this doesn't ruin things for Leo... again.
