Adele Pinchelow is the main antagonist of Dumb and Dumber To and the mastermind of the plot to murder her husband & stepdaughter & gain her husband’s fortune. She was portrayed by Laurie Holden.


Adele is a sneaky, unfeeling, despicable, heartless, greedy gold digging woman. She had no love what so ever for either her husband Dr. Pinchelow or his adopted daughter Penny & would do any despicable deed in order to secure & seize his fortune. She also tried to poison his food to kill him.


Adele is always dressed fancy & using her feminine wiles to keep Bernard Pinchelow attracted to her. Adele had also been the one sending Fraida Felcher‘s letters to Penny back to her and telling her never to contact Penny again. She also had an affair with the housekeeper Travis, which his brother was a military of the Army Forces. She ordered Travis to follow Harry & Lloyd to the KEN Conference to get the valious invention of Dr. Pinchelow & gain his fortune of 1 billion. When Travis died, his brother Captain Lippincott appeared & helped her in the crime. They invaded the KEN Convention & she found Harry impersonating her husband & revealed him as an impostor trying to steal the invention. Then she & Lippincott got Harry, Lloyd, Fraida & Penny as hostages in the bathroom to get the invention, which was discovered by Lippincott to be cupcakes. Penny’s friends invaded with guns, just as Bernard, reveals that he knew about Adele’s sneaky plans & that the invention was a gift for Dr. Walcott. She then tried to shoot Penny, but Harry leaps in front of her and blocks the bullet. She was punched three times in the face by Fraida. She and Lippincott were arrested after that.
