Director: Troy Miller. With Eric Christian Olsen, Derek Richardson, Mimi Rogers, Eugene Levy. (95 min.)
Sterritt *** Positioned somewhere between "Wayne's World" and "Animal House," with an occasional nod to "There's Something About Mary," this good-natured farce gives the backstory of the 1994 hit "Dumb & Dumber," telling how the dopey heroes met as high school students in a "special class." Olsen and Richardson bear uncanny resemblances to Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and Levy gives a generous dose of his weird-grownup shtick. In all it's a pleasant surprise if not a great comedy.

Director: Liz Garbus. With Edith Hahn, Julia Ormond, Susan Sarandon. (99 min.)
Sterritt *** This well-produced documentary tells Hahn's dramatic story of survival in Vienna and Germany during the World War II era, when she hid her Jewish identity and ended up married to a Nazi who kept her secret, despite his anti-Semitism. Sarandon narrates and Ormond reads excerpts from Hahn's memoir, supplemented by archival footage and interviews with the survivor herself.
