The long-awaited sequel to Dumb and Dumber, Dumb and Dumber To, arrives in theaters Friday.

Precisely how long-awaited? Well, the original film’s premiere was Dec. 6, 1994, so just about 20 years of thumb twiddling. To help tide you over before you return to the adventures of Lloyd and Harry in theaters, we’ve rounded up some amazingly dated pictures from the original film’s premiere. Enjoy!

Lauren Holly wins the Sixth Man Award for ’90s babes. Not as visible or ubiquitous as your Pam Andersons and your Yasmin Bleeths, but always dependable for solid work.

Jennifer Tilly was only a few years from melting eyeballs and screens the world over in Bound.

Karen Duffy looks amazing here, even if she is carrying a Tribble for a purse.

It’s Pauly Shore in the most Pauly Shore-esque photo ever taken.

Jeff Daniels costarred in 1994’s Speed as well, which is a seriously amazing one-two punch if you think about, which we have. (Especially considering he made $50,000 for Dumb and Dumberto Carrey’s reported $7 million.)

We don’t want to get off on a rant here, but this is the happiest we’ve ever seen Dennis Miller look.

Dudes, wanna feel bad? Google “Kristoff St. John 2014.” Crushing, right? Talk about aging like a fine wine.

Why Gary Busey is carrying a Sprite onto the red carpet is a mystery known only to Gary Busey.

It’s not a ’90s premiere without Stephen Baldwin!

God bless Richard Pryor. That’s all.
