While some may argue that Jim Carrey’s bangs in ‘90s classic Dumb and Dumber are enough to deem it tragic, the movie is still firmly remembered and experienced as a comedy. But with Mashable’s genre-bending recut, we can reimagine the Farrelly Brothers’ farce as an Oscar-bait drama, one that tells a simple tale of two lonely men united by a need for something more from life. And horrible haircuts.

It’s just what the Oscar race needs: another contender starring some white dudes. We’re joking. Kind of.
