The Dumb Bears is a American adult hand-drawn animated road comedy film written and directed by the Farrelly brothers. It is produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Netflix.
The film, being a parody/tribute to the Farrellys' previous films, notably Dumb and Dumber, follows two dimwitted and unintelligent but well-meaning anthropomorphic bear siblings who set out on a cross country trip to return a briefcase full of money to its rightful owner, not knowing the person is the victim of an elaborate kidnapping and extortion plot, and that the trip to the airport was supposed to be the payoff to release her kidnapped husband, while outsmarting a criminal couple and other villains.
The film was released on January 11, 2019 on Netflix.
