I Love You, Phillip Morris

I Love You, Phillip Morris is an entertaining offbeat combo of the con man, prison and romantic comedy genres – and it’s based on actual people and events.  Jim Carrey stars as the real life con man who perpetrates astonishing cons and  audacious escapes.  Carrey captures both the relentless audacity and the damaged neediness of his character.   Ewan McGregor plays his lover.  Although it’s admittedly a very bad year for the genre, this gay prison love romp is probably the year’s best romantic comedy.

    Jim Carrey gives one of the nerviest, boldest performances of his sporadically brilliant career. With an even better film, that can actually keep up with him. Nice review, check out mine when you can!
